Great, homestyle Italian food served in a simple atmosphere...VFW Hall. The menu offers Italian dishes you don't ordinarily find in most run of the mill Italian restaurants - stuffed squid, stewed rabbit, sausage & rabe, baccala, etc. Calamari and veal parmesan were delicious. Large portions, reasonable prices. Service is efficient but not overly friendly. Check hours of operation.

Some of the best Italian food around, simple atmosphere, (VFW Hall) good prices and my favorite Calamari by far, My one suggestion to beware of- don't demand friendly service, although not nasty, you will be disappointed. Still, well worth the visit

There is a lot of great Italian in Providence and Cranston. I wanted to highlight this lesser known VFW post open to the public for its old world, straight out of the 1970s, wood paneled, homestyle variety. In the past I have had many pasta dishes of course but also rarities such as fried smelts and dandelion salad. The standard... More

We never would have given this place a second look, didn't even realize it was open to the public. Went here today with a local family member who suggested it. The place was packed, food was delicious and everything was so reasonably priced. Two of us had the luncheon specials which were $7.95 and one had the full dinner at... More

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.
