Unbelievably delicious and it's run by the family who owns it, being there feels like going back to a Philly Italian restaurant, or even a bit like a slice of Italy! Kind, friendly, and I wouldnt be surprised if their grandmother was cooking in the...More

Try anything with their sausage, actually anything we have tried has been delicious. Pizza, stuffed peppers, pastas, super antipasti... it is quirky to find, make a reservation, carpool because parking is contained.

We've been coming here for years. Great food, particularly love the sausage. Discovered that they do breakfast too. Definitely get in here and try this, it's one of those little Newport secrets that everyone should know about. Highly recommend.

We live just around the corner and have given this place several chances. The good is ok but the service is always terrible. Do not go here if you have less than two hours to waist.
