“Hide away heavenly food”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

This is a small but not to be missed italian kitchen in Cranston RI. I was there for a conference and joined some others to eat. The reccommendation came from a local.
The portions were ample, the service friendly and very helpful. The main course food was delicious, well prepared, served beautifully. The salads were fresh. The pasta sauce, alas, was ordinary without any nose, or special flavor; however let that not detract from the entre tastes and presentations. A steak with portabella mushroom and peppers, salmon encrusted with pistachio, stuffed chicken breasts and lasagna were the entres. The coffee was fresh.

The place is intimate but requires some contortion to enter because of the door placements. Parking is at a premium, but free. Even the Google directions don't make it easy to find. (we corrected that).

Try the restaurant. Its not black tie but tasty. Prices are medium with prices in the 14-19$ range. Meals come soup or salad, entree and 2 vegetable (depending on the entree). We were too full to comfortably do dessert but I would return, definitely.

“HIDDEN TREASURE”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

My sisters and I, along with one of our cousins, have been to this restaurant on a few occasions. We have never been disappointed with the food, the price or the service. This is a small place, set back in a small strip mall with awesome food and great service. Well worth the trip every time.

“Hard to find”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Macera's has soup, sauce and meals to go, it also has a wonderful restaurant as well as banquet room. The food is outstanding, and the service is great, the only problem is that it's located in the back of a strip mall and can be hard to find. It really is a great place to get Italian food.
