I used to like going here, but it is under new ownership now. It was always busy in summer, but would close in winter. I think most do not know it is there so restaurants do not last long in this location.

This casual restaurant located in a marina off West Main Road in Portsmouth is on the waterfront and offers free parking unlike similar places 8 miles away in Newport. The calamari was great, but the pasta dishes were ordinary and overpriced. The service was okay.
