They have the best Chicken Michelena which consists of fried chicken cutlet, fried eggplant, mozzarella cheese, red sauce. They also have a great antipasto! I heard they closed. That's too bad because it was good.

Went there for dinner for the first time, a little dark and old fashion but the food was good and the portions large. I would go again if in the area and wanted to pick up a quick bit to eat.

My sister has been coming here for years and insisted we give it a try on a recent trip to New England. Were we delighted we did. Everything is homemade! The stuffed quohags rank among New England's best and another appetizer, littleneck clams in a...More

Everything is Homemade!! Owner and entire staff are friendly as well as proud of their food.For appetizers we had outstanding stuffed quohags, littleneck clams in a heavenly wine sauce and bruschetta. Entrees consisted of Littlenecks Bianco with Linguini, a fettucini dish and homemade pizza, all of which were hearty portions and received absolutely no complaints. I had one of the day's specials-a monstrous breaded chicken cutlet, topped with a large green pepper stuffed with sausage, bread crumbs, cheese and black olives. All of this was topped with Tony's homemade thick tomato sauce and then covered with mozzarella cheese, baked to proper temperature. It was so wonderful I ate as much as I could and still took at least a third of it with me. I did not have room for dessert but the rest of my party did.If you are in the Providence, RI area go out of your way to find this hidden gem....you will not be disappointed.
