My younger brother and I come here every year as we go to Pawtucket for Labor Day weekend to see the Pawtucket Red Sox for a couple of games. It was completely amazing. As we arrived early, I got an early bird special of pan seared Cajun salmon with a garden salad. It also included a soup and ice cream.... More

Found this little gem by accident and what a find it is!! We've been back twice already! The decor is a "step back in time" with it's knotty pine walls but so perfect at the same time! It's a small place so call ahead to check on the wait time ( no reservations for less than 6). The Fruitti del... More

We just had dinner here. I came home late from work and I was so tired to cook. The food is excellent and the service is good. The place is small but the food was great.

Over the years, we have been here many times. It is small, friendly local place with a great menu especially for pasta dishes. It use to be BYOB but they now have a full liquor license. On this visit (we had 14 adults and kids), I had the PASTA VONGOLE ($15.99) Littleneck and baby clams sautéed in olive oil and... More

Bella Pasta is not for everyone. If what you seek is a modern sterile environment featuring nouveaux cuisine, and the latest in tableware look elsewhere. Bella Pasta is not for you. If you seek wonderful hearty Italian dishes, perfectly prepared and served as if in a traditional Italian home, look no further. In a world filled with Italian restaurants Bella... More

I had high hopes after reading some of the reviews, but I've come to the conclusion those reviewers also think Olive Garden is real Italian food. The interior is 1970s throwback and not in a retro way. The menu has decent choices but the execution is another matter. The vegetables tasted like they came out of a can. The main... More

Could be Venda but not sure; however the service is fine and the... More
