    We loved our dinner at Bar 'Cino. Food was delicious, service was excellent, and price was reasonable. It was our first time there and it is one of the best in Newport, and we've been to many, many Newport Restaurants. Will definitely go again on future visits.

    My partner and I decided to try Bar ‘Cino for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed! We actually enjoyed it so much that we came back the next night for dinner AGAIN! Incredible food, friendly staff, great service (food came out so quickly, even on a busy night!). Vegan friendly, too! Thank you!!

    Went for a late afternoon Easter dinner. A party had recently departed, and the host, on his initiative, moved us to a table instead of our counter reservations. Aundrea, our waitress, was superb and made great recommendations. The grilled artichoke appetizer and swordfish holiday specials were great, as were the beet and kale Caesar. Great experience.

    Their flatbread was the big winner! Service was great and sitting at the counter over looking the kitchen is experience as well. You can tell people love working there and the everything else reflects off that. I did not enjoy their clams on the app menu. Same sauce as the pizza was a bit of a buzz kill. Also you only get 6 clams for $15 Flat bread - 9/10 Special pasta fettuccine - 8.5/10 Clams - 5/10,(tasty but not worth it) I would have rather seen them do a clams casino type of thing to break it up Kale Cesar - 9/10 Well done!!!

    On a rainy Thursday afternoon, my friends and I decided to dine at Bar'Cino. From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by the courteous and friendly wait staff, who welcomed us with warmth and led us to our table. Our server, Molly, was a very sweet lady who took great care of us throughout our meal. We started with a selection of appetizers to share before ordering our entrees. As one of my friends had a severe nut allergy, we were relieved to find that both the kitchen and Molly were very accommodating and took extra care to ensure that our food was safe to eat. Our appetizers included olives, marinated beets with cheese and walnuts, tomato bruschetta, and potato chips, all of which were incredibly delicious. For our entrees, my friends decided to order the flatbread pizza margherita, while I indulged in my favorite dish - the Tuscan kale salad with salmon. The salad was absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared, while the pizza was equally impressive. We finished off our meal with Budino - a creamy custard with a great flavor - and lemon sorbet, which was the perfect way to end our meal. I would like to give a special shout-out to Chef Mariana, who took the time to check in on us despite being busy. It's always inspiring to see such a creative team led by a great chef like her. Overall, our lunch experience at Bar'Cino was truly exceptional. The food was outstanding, and the service was impeccable, which made for a wonderful dining experience. I look forward to returning soon to try some of their new seasonal menu items. Thank you, Bar'Cino team, for always great time!

    Bar'Cino is a local restaurant that offers a delightful dining experience to its customers. With a kind and welcoming manager, staff, the restaurant creates a great ambiance for its guests. The food is delicious, and the flavors are just perfect. The olives served here are particularly scrumptious, and the Tuscan kale salad is the best. The salad is loaded with citrusy dressing and cheese that adds to its rich taste. If you add on some protein or seafood, it would be a great addition to your meal. If you are looking for a great drink, then the flavored old-fashioned is a must-try. Moreover, the manager is very helpful and goes out of his way to ensure that his customers have a great time. Recently, he saved the evening by finding a lost earring that my friend dropped. She was very happy and appreciated the manager giving us a call to let us know. So once again, thank you! Overall, Bar'Cino is a fantastic place to dine.

    Best food we have had in such a long time. The pasta and grilled pizza were outstanding. My only complaint was that the food came out a little too fast. When my partner and I go out to eat, we treat it like a true date so when the food comes out too quickly, we can feel a little rushed. But overall, I will be highly recommending this place!!

    We are 2 women visiting from NJ and our first time in Newport. Our second night in town found us wanting a pizza and salad for take out. We ordered the margarita pie and farro salad. Both were delicious and I would say the farro salad was exceptional. When it came time to have dinner on night 4, we made reservations to eat in. We had the kale salad, my friend had a pasta dish and I had the risotto. The food was fabulous. The place was packed with waiting times both nights and it was evident this is a favorite with locals and tourists. The staff was very friendly. The manager gave us a complimentary slice of pistachio cake because we had to wait for a table beyond our reservation time. Get the pistachio cake! This was our favorite dining experience in Newport.

    My wife, son and I had dinner last night. I had been to Italy separately with them and thought, let's see if I can find Rome in Newport. The staff is great, the hostess had a great smile and told us our table was almost ready, I like to be early for reservations. Our server Dylan I believe, understood that we enjoy going out and gave us time to talk, order a starter and then entrees. The food, was delicious, hot, tasty, presented well and was the closest to our visits to Italy as we have had in RI. Two of us had Carbonara and one, Chicken Milanese, all delicious. Our dinner in Italy ended with tiramisu and lemoncello always, last night was no exception and as good as we had in various places in Rome, Venice and Florence.
