Need recomendations for Eastern CT/Western RI shore

Coming from NYC and planning a midweek trip to the Eastern CT shore staying in Pawcatuck CT. We'll be there for 2 nights, Wednesday and Thursday, just to kind of relax and see some sights and take in a couple of good meals. Nothing outrageously expensive but good. Our tastes run to Italian, simple Bistro fare and things locavor and of course seafood.

  1. On the CT/RI border on Rt 1 there is a great restaurant, Prime Time. We go there all the time, but you must sit at the bar and say hello to Colleen our favorite bartender. she is a wonderful person and the service is excellant. Reasonably priced, a nice place to be, the best scallops we have had anywhere!

    2. There is another restaurant near there that was pretty good, Trieste. It is on RT 1 between Pawcatuck and Stonington CT.

        1. I know the area VERY well- go to Venice Restauarant in Westerly right near Misquamiquit- tell Antonio and Anna hello from Rich and Cindy and you will be well taken care of!
