AAA Inspector Notes
Classic. This Rhode Island institution has been serving the same family recipes since 1933. The tender steaks, fresh seafood and signature Italian dishes are complemented by their secret pasta sauces, which are so good that bottled versions are sold in local grocery stores. The old-school atmosphere is casual and family-friendly. The best tables overlook Spectacle Pond. The dark wood-paneled walls, older-style chairs and maroon color scheme may have you feeling like you've been transported back to the early 1980s, but at least your wallet will thank you as the prices are very reasonable. The traditional all-male service staff is professionally dressed in white button-up shirts, black slacks and black vests. They are quick to fill your water glass and clear plates.
