My son and two of my friends wandered around Newport one night and stumbled across this wonderful restaurant.
The waiter was excellent. Attentive, personable and skilled at his craft. He forgot nothing, glasses of water remained unobtrusively filled and plates cleared from the table without fuss and barely noticed.
The table started with some tasty bread and olive oil. We soon found the menu contained very wide selection of Italian dishes including a large selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes. Though I am not a vegetarian, I lean away from meats when possible and was pleased to find a vegetarian gnocchi dish. Named Gnocchi della Tata, is consisted of the gnocchi, nearly perfect potato dumplings in a sauce Tomato, Capers, Olives, Olive Oil, fresh Basil and Parmesan Cheese. It was truly extraordinary. It can be made vegan by simply asking that the Parmesan cheese be left out.
My son enjoyed the personal pepperoni pizza and his silence during the meal said all that was needed about how good that was!
One of our companions had the Bocconcini di Seitan al Madera. She said it was incredible and remarked on how rare it is to find Seitan on a menu. a Vegan meat substitute, it has a texture similar to veal.
Her companion proclaimed his Ravioli al Ragu' Bolognese "incredible".
The coffee to finish the meal was freshly brewed and properly strong and the chocolate cake enjoyed acclaim from the two member of our party that ordered it and the mango sorbet was also well received.
Top to bottom it was a great evening.
