“Nicely Done w/Outdoor Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Until tonight, we hadn't been here in a few years, only because we're usually not in the area. We had a very nice dinner. They have an outdoor dining area that's enclosed with decorative stonewalls, nice lighting, overhead fans, potted plants, and dinner music. We'll be happy to return.

I have been dining at Cafe Itri for several years whenever we visit Rhode Island. It is truly my favorite restaurant there. Both the food and the service are excellent and consistent. The menu is varied and innovative and everything is prepared and presented beautifully. They have a nice wine list and a good bartender. The ambience is warm and comfortable.

My husband and I have been dining here for many years. In the course of those years, we have introduced a number of our friends to Caffe Itri. Our meals and the service have always been pleasant--until now. Tonight, we entered Caffe Itri with an out of town guest. (Our guest is African-American, we are white.) The restaurant was very busy and we were told that the wait for a table for our party of 4 would be approximately 20 minutes--completely understandable under the circumstances. After approximately, one half hour, a 'four-top" table opened up. The "hostess" chose to seat a party of three which had arrived well after us at the table. When we protested, the hostess disingenuously claimed that the table would not accommodate four people!! Since we have been great customers (and good tippers) over the years, it is hard to imagine that this decision was not motivated purely by racism. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

It's always a pleasurable experience for us when my 87 year old father begins his sentence with, "dinners on me this Friday at Cafe Itri!" Being set in his ways he always ends up with a veal dish. The specials are always worth exploring, and don't forget to open a few bottles of wine from their excellent selection. Excellent service and very attentive staff make the experience tops! Be sure to save room for the dolce, and an expresso.

“Nice Family Restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

I never ate there before so decided to try it with some friends. We made reservations, so we didn't have to wait even though there was a line waiting. The restaurant was a little small and very noisy. Food was good overall and had no problems with the service. Probably would not go back simply because of the noise.
