Good restaurants in Newport area?

I will be in Middletown, RI for the week with my in-laws. Any good restaurant suggestions? ( Moderately priced-seafood/Italian )

  1. We like Peurini's. Nice Italian, consistently good.

      Psst, Peurini's closed down several months ago.

        Did they really! Oh that is too bad! I need to get to Newport more often! Thanks for telling me!

          I drove by not too long ago and they were putting up a new sign but didn;t slow down to see what it said.

            Someone just told me it is going to be called Joe's American Bistro.

    2. Thames Street Kitchen is consistently good! Pasta Beach on Memorial Blvd is great for Itallian.

          Pasta Beach, IMHO, has the best Bolognese sauce I have had.

        2. Try Sardella's on Memorial Blvd. or Mamma Luisa's at the far end of Lower Thames.

          1. For great seafood you cannot beat Scales and Shells on Thames St. For great Italian, also on Thames, Mama Luisa.
            Two of my all time favorites.
