    The food here is always good. The pizza is always cooked and topped perfectly. The Caesar salad was a bit dry. On the less positive side, our waitress was a little slow serving us our refills.

    Gluten free chicken piccata with roasted potatoes and green beans delicious. Gluten free minestrone soup also delicious. Husband had regular chicken pasta dish said it was very good. Would like more gluten free dessert options like creme brulee' or pudding. Many items on the menu have a gluten free option as most are cooked to order, great selection of gluten free entrees. Also a nice cocktail selection with gluten free options.

    This was our first time dining there. It’s was outstanding! From the food to the service. My husband very seldom says almost immediately that we will be back! From the moment we walked in until we paid the bill everything was lovely! My chicken parmigiana was delicious as was the homemade pasta. I had the wedding soup which was full of meatballs and vegetables. My husband had the minestrone soup and loved it! He had a pasta dish with shell macaroni , vegetables and sausage. He loved it! My Prosecco Bellini was delicious! We didn’t get dessert because we were both so full.

    The Restaurant Week menu did not disappoint! Great value and portion, the salmon was perfectly cooked. Seasoned just right and the presentation was flawless. Our server (forgot her name) was attentive, genuine, and did a great job keeping our table tidy which I appreciated (I’m in the industry). One of the best NRG restaurants north of Newport.
