This is one of the best restaurants for homemade Italian cuisine in the state... you cannot beat the portions or the price. What it lacks in ambiance is more than made up for with generous portions of excellent Italian-American fare that would impress even the most critical Nonna. Try a stuffed artichoke while you're there, and polenta, and any entree you order is going to be the best. I highly recommend this Kitchen!

Mike's is as simple as it gets - not the least bit fancy. You're greeted by a "Don't Sit at Dirty Tables" sign and lots of conversational noise. You get two servers - one for food and the other for beverages and cocktails. The selection is rather extensive for a relatively small place - a current VFW Post. The meals are large, hot and terrific. I have been there for both lunch and dinner about 50 times and never have I not seen people I know. It's that kind of place - familiar, delicious and very inexpensive - what better combination? I highly recommend Mike's for the food, comfortable atmosphere and extremely high value.

No atmosphere, waitresses that look like they want to go home, a separate drink waitress who you pay as you go and great food at a great price. Fish, pasta, soups. It's all good. And my dad says they have some of the best tripe in Rhode Island.

Slip into your jeans, grab some neighbors or friends and head out for an evening of awesome food at this homely restaurant. Totally not fancy but awesome italian fare not to be seconded. I hope to go there Monday PM for rabies and cannelini beans with grilled chicken on top. Ah that is heaven. The fra diablo or the veal and peas are wonderful. Honestly the menu will please you and you won't be disappointed.

This was our first time here. What a pleasant surprise. First off, this place is in a VFW Post. Second, it is not a beautiful place since the tables are in the center of this hall. Third, the food made up for all of it. Really, really good. It was Italian home made as you can get.
I had gnocci and my wife had eggplant parm. Both dishes were outstanding and flavorful.
We are definitely going back.

Thank Bob J
