I have been going here since i was a baby in a high chair. My family is very close friends with the people that work there.I have always gotten the chicken parm. I´ve never gotten anything different. The chicken parm is probably the best meal i could ask for. My parents would say what do you want for dinner and... More

Stuffed Squid. I got it over pasta with a squid sauce (picture). Very good. I go every chance I get because they serve authentic Italian food with specials I can't find back in the Worcester, MA area. Still wish they had more dessert offerings.

From the outside, the restaurant does not look too special as it was an old VFW function hall. The decor inside still has the VFW decorations of all the service men and women who served from the area. The food, however, is old italian style with polenta, baccala, calamari, veal and peas dishes, etc. All the meals that we have... More

The ladies at the Sausage Shop in Providence's Silver Lake told us we absolutely had to stop at Mike's for lunch. They clearly knew their stuff. Friday lunch was a hoot. The parking lot was full but there were some empty tables inside (whew). Mike's Kitchen is in a VFW Hall on the outskirts of Cranston's Knightsville area (known for... More

Three words...try the polenta. Three more words...it's the best! This is where you go if you want a generous size piece of delicious, light, creamy, polenta with delicious red sauce. It's heaven on a plate. Bring your appetite and cash, since they are a cash only establishment.

We went for dinner with family members and our cousin from Texas. My sister and brother-in-law are regulars; this was our first visit. Appetizers, smelts and calamari were good, fried but not greasy. My wife had the Chicken Parmesan and I had the Veal Parmesan. Her chicken was thicker and juicier than the veal. Both were very good, but I... More

Their Italian dishes are wonderful. Eggplant parmesan is the best. Macaroni is cooked al dente just the way I like it. Nothing fancy, but the food is great. The prices are very good and the portions are ample!

I went for lunch on Friday, 08/20/16, and had another great meal for my second visit. I live about a 1 1/2 hours away so I only get to go when in the area. Busy for lunch with, again, great specials. I had a hankering for polenta and, boy, was that a winner! Soft, creamy, topped with a flavorful, slightly... More

I'm fan of this place. Place has good portions, and a large variety of food on their menu. Yesterday afternoon I had the Chicken and Rabe over pasta. This location is a Post 2396, It has been around for years. They also have lunch available at this location. I recommend this place. Plenty of food to choose from. The other... More

If it's real traditional Italian food you want, this is the place. They have Italian specialties, on their menu, that you will probably never see anywhere else without a trip to southern Italy. Their polenta is the best I've ever had and I make pretty good polenta myself. The calamari (squid rings) were also fresh tasting and delicious and came... More
