In the old world, in a little village near Bologna, lived the real ‘Mamma Luisa’ who cooked and inspired the next generation of family and friends to recreate in Newport the same authentic taste and atmosphere of northern Italian cuisine.

Our four cozy dining rooms situated a quaint old house make it ideal for romantic dinners & small to medium size parties.

The menu features a variety of authentic Italian dishes like antipasti, bruschetta & salads; typical pasta dishes like Bolognese, Carbonara, Ravioli, and the homemade gnocchi as well as Eggplant Parmigiana and Frutti di Mare.
Selected fresh meat, fish & seafood complete our menu with signature dishes of veal, pork, steak, sole & tuna.
Finish dinner with a cappuccino, espresso or tiramisu.

At Mamma Luisa’s we also offer a full vegetarian page together with vegan and gluten-free options.

Our extensive wine &beer list will transport you to the different regions of Italy and you will find also handpicked gems from around the world

    Restaurant is basically an older home with tables setup in each room. We sat upstairs and the stairs are very steep. Very nice atmosphere. Wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was absolutely delicious. There were selections on the menu that were different than your basic italian restaurants. I thought this was great. Get the bruccetta. The best ever.

    What a little gem! There is no way to know how sweet and lovely the inside is from the outside. Everything was perfect for an intimate night out! The food, the service, and the ambiance catered to really being able to reconnect. It's no small wonder that this place has stood the test of time!
