Im taking my girlfriend to Newport in mid May for a surprise getaway. Anyone know of a good restaurant there?

  1. Search the board for Newport, there are hundreds of recommendations. Try Tucker's on Broadway.

        Cheeky Monkey is probably the noisiest restaurant I've ever had dinner in - so avoid it if you're looking for something romantic.

        1. Shells and Scales. Nice looking grilled food, but I had lobster fra diavolo, really good. Pretty informal, but there's another dining room upstairs. Bring cash, no credit cards.

          I found a link, see below.


          1. We just got back last week. Try the Red Parrot (reasonably priced - diverse menu - Caribbean flair); Sardella's (Italian restaurant - reasonably priced - romantic); and Busker's (Irish pub - reasonably priced - great Irish menu).

              Try Puerini's next to Sardella's for Italian. Sardella's has the awesome patio which draws the tourists, but Puerini's food is a category above. They make their own pasta in their small pasta factory right up in Fall River Mass.
