A sleek modern design and seasonally changing menu keep things fresh at this Italian cucina. Black and white nostalgic photos are hung on exposed-brick walls while the bold-red banquettes add a pop of color. Excellent homemade pasta dishes, seafood and steaks from local farms and fishmongers make a difference in the flavor. Try the family recipe meatball appetizer in a San Marzano pomodoro sauce that is topped heavily with local Narragansett Creamery ricotta. Finish with the tiramisu. You'll find the restaurant located in the heart of charming Pawtuxet Village next door to quaint shops.
