We've been to this quaint little restaurant/book store for a few years in a row now. The food itself is actually very good with homemade spaghetti sauce that is wonderful. Unfortunately both times we had to wait 3-4 hours to eat (and that's after we were seated). When the food finally did come it was cold. I understand with the... More

Don't let the outside or the neighborhood make you pass up this dining experience. If you don't mind eating in an old bookstore, with plastic table cloths and mismatched furniture, you will get a very good meal. Our server, Chelsey, was delightful and efficient. I had linguini with clams, and everything was cooked perfectly. The salad was fresh and the... More

YEAH! Wonderfully prepared. The italian chef/owner knows what she is doing. Try her pesto,olive,pepperocini sauce. To die for! The staff was so accomadating and nice. Yes, it takes longer than fast food. It's worth it! My friend said the homemade potpie was incredible.

Setting is cramped, run down looking. Ok - I can go with some antique charm for a nice dining experience. Waited 15 minutes for water. The wait person (who I believe was the cooks helper and not really wait staff) explained they were short handed. Beer list? One kind "it's off-season"??? Ordered. Waited 15 min for salads (in which time... More

GREAT Italian food is not cheap, easy or quick to make! But this beautiful place is still affordable. We had stuffed mushrooms and meatballs for an appetizer. We enjoyed our salads and garlic flatbread. And then we had linguini with alfredo sauce and hot Italian sausage and the cannelloni....... Both were excellent! We would definitely go back. Enjoyed a very... More

Was recommended by the hotel to eat here and it was superb! Excellent service, great surroundings (surrounded by books!). Pasta was to die for as was the garlic bread. A slice of each desert was brought out on a tray for you to look at and then choose - so much better than looking at a menu! Can't fault it.... More

Nice surprise to find such good Italian on the Oregon coast. Had the Baked manicotti with meatballs. Wish I had been in Newport longer so I could have visited again. More wine choices would have rated 5 stars.

My husband and I found this little cafe' on the last evening of our short stay in Newport. If we had found it earlier we would have eaten every meal thereafter right there. The ambiance is that of an authentic Italian eatery with an added feel of a comfortable coffee shop. The owners and staff are very pleasant and the... More

The evening we stopped in, the food was so good and portions very generous. The topper was that they had a duo playing and singing and made us feel that at the moment we were as close as we could get to New Orleans. They were very good and made the evening just that much more fun.

We stumbled on this find the last time we were in Newport. On Wednesdays they have all the spaghetti you can eat for $6.50 including salad and garlic bread. Meatballs are 2 for $4.50. It is some the best spaghetti We have had ever eaten. We each had 1 meatball which are the best meatballs we have eaten. They are... More
