A full service Italian restaurant near the beach. The Fisherman stuffed lobster was cooked properly and was a 1-1/4 pound lobster split and stuffed with the claw meat, a shrimp, and bay scallops with flavored bread crumbs. Very tasty.

We have been to this restaurant many, many times and always have found the service very spotty. Last night was the final straw. We went out with some friends and in a group of five, my meal never was served with the others. The waiter did not offer any explanation, just left. After waiting another 10 to 15 minutes, finally...

We had dinner upstairs near the bar. The atmosphere was still quiet and we had a great view. Our server was excellent and the food was delicious. My friend had the oysters at $1 each and raved about them. I had whole belly clams--yum! We had absolutely no complaints.

Upon entry, I expected to be asked if we had made a reservation. None was needed. The service could not have been better. Our waiter, Dan was very professional. Our food was excellent,and had a nice presentation. The prices were very reasonable considering that the restaurant looked to be very formal. The dinning room was well set with a nice... More

This is our favorite place to eat when we are in the Misquamicut area. The oysters are fresh and delicious and only a buck a shuck when you sit at the bar. The calamari wasn't chewy at all and the pizza quite good. If you go say hi to Lou the bartender!

Family owned and operated. Food was very good. Reasonably priced. I had the baked stuffed lobster, enjoyed it very much. I would definitely go back again.

Good fried squid, excellent appetizer bread and oil, large portions, shrimp on cob salad could have used seasoning. Baked cod very good, ten ounce portion was great. Too full to order dessert. Would return.

We have a boat in the area and eat here quite often. Buck for oysters and shrimp. Both are delicious. Eggplant parmesian for an appetizer is like a meal in itself. 12 oz. prime rib was excellent; and the veal marsala is perfect. Sides and salads are always fresh. The only disappointment we have had was the fisherman lobster special.... More

Generous portions, nice view from the Sky Box. Both my wife and I enjoyed the chicken parm and her overflowing seafood plate. Ate like kings, then went and took a nap. That's an approval in my world.
