I have been to Diego's a few times and food has been creative and good. Service has always been good but on this last trip the gentleman went over and above for me and my friend. We will be back each time we're in Newport!

The food is really good - inventive dishes and a menu that surprised me with their range of ingredients. Even things like the Chilaquiles weren't your typical soggy 3-chip Chilaquiles - they were a mountain of deliciousness. They even make their own hot sauce which...More
