Ah...such a lovely restaurant. We unfortunately weren't hungry enough to taste the appetizers...but our dinners were wonderful. The dessert we shared, tiramisu, was light as a cloud and delicious. The cappuccino was delicious!

An easy to find Italian restaurant with a view above the street. very crowded on Saturday night and a long wait to receive service and food we even had to wait for the menu. The food was good.

Great traditional Italian food and wine by the bottles in all prices. The restaurant is divided into two sections and they were able to put a table in for all 12 of us to sit together..The staff was very efficient. Everyone loved the food!

A regular stop for us when we are in Newport. The spinach app and the sauteed broccoli are most enjoyable. The Filet of Sole Arancia are a home run every time. Put this place on your busket list. You won't be disappointed.
