“Like eating at your neighbor's house”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a charming little whole in the wall that has great food and good service. The food is consistent and delicious - outmatched only by the great soups. It's a tiny place, teeming with (tacky) holiday decor at all times of the year, but it has a sentimental quaintness and charm. The music occasionally can be a bit loud given the size of the restaurant, but they are happy to turn it down. This is a great place in winter when you want some excellent comfort food. Try the stuffed chicken breast - it's not easy to spot on the menu but is one of the best dishes!!

Macera's a family business with great food and service. The dining room is always tastefully decorated for the season/holiday.

“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.
