A group of us, 4 couples ventured away from Fall River for Portuguese food.. We ordered the steak and eggs, shrimp Mozambique, pork alejetana. All the couples split desserts.. We enjoyed everything!

My first outing to a Portuguese restaurant was a hit. Referred to my wife from a cab-driver, O Dinis was highly recommended. Rhode Island is supposed to have quite a population of Portuguese, so we should assume there would be a really good Portuguese eatery....More

Tiny, inviting, and a truly culinary gem. I dined with my spouse and another couple. We usually do not choose a Portuguese option when trying a new venue. Most of the menu is Portuguese so we needed help with our ordering. Our waitress and other...More
