My Husband got the fish and chips Loved the home cut fries and the chowder and clam cakes were tasty, with a large fish portion. I got a pasta dish that was … ok, It didn’t have all that much flavor but was still ok to eat - had to add flavor by asking for marinara sauce Probably won’t go back as there are still so many restaurants to try and we don’t live in this area of RI, if we lived here we would definitely be back.

Wine by the glass was very reasonable. We ordered side salads and they were tasty as were the warm rolls. My friends and husband enjoyed their entrees, veal parmesan and steak tips gorgonzola. My entree of baked scrod was not cooked enough and when I ordered, I had asked for extra cracker crumb topping which added. I requested more so the waitress brought me a cup of cracker crumbs which had not been heated or seasoned - not good at all. Further, the juices of the fish spread throughout my vegetables and that was not at all appealing. The molten cake dessert with ice cream ordered my by friends looked fantastic, while the lemon cake I shared with my hubby was ok and rather small compared to the molten cake, each of which were equivalent prices. Perhaps another try will be more to my liking.

The place was basically empty and a couple of waitresses were just standing around. As we were patiently waiting we noticed a disturbing amount of dust on the blinds. After 15 minutes we decided to leave. I can't review the food as we never even received water. We ended up having a great meal down the road.

                                                                  I booked a reservation for mother's day because it was the only place I could find that would do a reservation for 7. I was a little nervous because I couldn't find any reviews. But there was no need to worry. It had everything we needed! The food was delicious, starting with the appetizers. Do not miss the Italian style calamari! I was longing for pasta, and the pasta was perfectly cooked, and their marinara sauce was amazing! The salads were huge, all portions were generous. I have a child with celiac, and they offered to let us order the "build your own pizza" from the children's menu, with the gluten-free crust. I have eaten a lot of gluten free pizza, and this was hands-down the best I've ever had! Probably because their sauce is that good. In addition to the excellent food and service, the atmosphere is cozy, and even though they were busy the whole time, it wasn't noisy, which allowed us to enjoy each other's company. There is plenty of parking. We all agreed we would be back. This is definitely a new favorite!!!
