Pasta Beach is a small restaurant but we had reservations. It was quite full on a Sunday evening and one can see why after eating a meal there. The food is quite good and the wine selection excellent!

It is, perhaps, unfair to review a restaurant based on only one menu item but here goes: the pizza, especially the black olive and pepperoni (del pervo?) is the best of almost any pizza I've ever had. Al Forno is probably a bit bit better but they've been at it a long time and it is mercilessly consistent. Frank Pepe... More

Had reservations for a Saturday night and the place was packed. It is fairly small so I would definitely recommend a reservation on weekends. I have seen several reviews complaining about service, but our service was excellent, very friendly and attentive. The food was very good, chicken milanese was very tender. Past cooked al-dente, which is most important in an... More

The first time I bragged about how good this place was. After the last time there I have a different opinion. Service was not good and neither was the food. I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich but they had no bread to put it on or any kind of other sandwiches to serve. The other entrees served were not up... More

We were looking for something casual and good quality. Pasta Beach came highly recommended by locals. Awesome mushroom & ricotta bruschetta, salad and pasta fagioli. Best part was James our waiter who was personable & professional. He was very accommodating to all our needs. We will be back and request James!

Eating here was one of the best ideas of our vacation. It's located in a busy tourist area with many other restaurants and shops. Parking here, as is anywhere else in Newport, a little difficult to find. A small little place. We were lucky enough to go in earlier. By the end of our meal the tables and seats at... More

It is located on a busy street and is very attractive for tourists. That's why it's always busy there. Average pasta, pizza is better, bread is the best dish there. Newport is full of Italian cuisine, sorry to say this place is not among the best of them. Good enough for tourists who don't know any better.

We ordered a pizza with just onion on it. It looked great, however the crust was so wet n soggy on the bottom. It tasted good but too wet. I only like german wine but all the white wines were dry. When the waitress took our plates away she never asked us if everything was ok. To me thats bad.... More

This was such a cute little stop. You walk in and you can feel the warm oven in the back making pizzas and pies. We decided to get pasta and we were rewarded with not just tasty food but mighty portions too. Service was amiable and it just feels like a place that could easily be a staple for locals.
