We had dinner at Sardella and had a pleasant meal. We sat in the outdoor covered area which was very pleasant. The food was good, as was the service. There is nothing remarkable about Sardella but it honest food, reasonably priced.

Havent been to Sardella's in a couple of years and decided to go back. Good decision.
I had the Salmon special which was delicious. Two of the girls had a pasta dish which was described as light with peas, proscuitto and a light olive oil and garlic sauce. They LOVED it and I would love to have that recipe. It is a large restaurant but I suggest reservations.
Will definitely go back.

It's not surprising that Sardella's restaurant on 30 Memorial Boulevard is a perennial Best of Newport winner. The food and atmosphere are very good. We were particularly surprised by a Monday through Wednesday special dinner for 2 that included a full bottle of wine for less than the cost of a single dinner on other nights. We've tried several of these special entrees and found each to be very good. Also there is live entertainment on Wednesday night to accompany your dinner. We look forward to our next Sardella's evening!

Went on my birthday and Sat outside in the covered area b/c I had my dog with me. He was greeted with a bowl of water and treated like a king. Was a bit damp and rainy and they put the outside heater on for us. Service was great, food was great! Thank you!
