One of the biggest surprises about Newport was that at nearly every restaurant we went to the portions were huge and Pasta Beach was no different. The pizza and pasta dishes were great but huge and we actually had to take some of the food with us. Service was great and staff was very friendly. We loved our experience. Would definitely come back. Strongly recommend.

Went there for dinner tonight. The server not once smiled or introduced herself to the table. Every time she came to the table it was rushed and unfriendly. The main course were delivered 15min apart. Not what you expect... won’t go back

Good pasta - huge portions. It was a challenge to finish, but I just managed it. Lots of people asking the waiters to 'box it' and take large portions of leftovers home. Think I'd prefer a portion 2/3 the size and 2/3 the price, however.......

I am a local Newport resident who wanted to visit their new location. The space used to be the Christian Science Reading Room so a very cool layout. Walked in the door. Very young lady hostess gave me a weird look instead of a smile and a "welcome." Her skirt was SO SHORT that it was offensive. When she bent over to clean off our table, you could literally see her private parts. The waitress (curly dark hair and glasses) seemed stressed and uncaring. I asked for one of the sandwiches on the menu and was told "sorry no bread for that at 5 pm." What??? I asked if someone could just put the contents of the sandwich on ANY kind of bread they had and was told a flat out no. This is the 1st major role of customer service which they broke. The clam pasta was served and had no taste. Absolutely bland! No one asked if we wanted graded cheese, or red pepper. Waitress just had an attitude for the rest of the time because of the sandwich question. I guess if you want to go to a cool looking place and drink $14 cocktails, this is the place for you, but if you want nice service and tasteful food, go elsewhere.
