Pasta Connection in Newport

Went to this joint on Friday. I had been there maybe two or three times in my college days and remember it being good. I did warn my husband that when I was in college, I just ate anything on a plate that was hot and considered it "haute cuisine." So we decided to give it a try.

First of all, the sign says that it is "Italian and Argentinian cuisine." Granted, I was in college a few years ago and my memory can't be that bad. Did it recently change cuisines? I remember it being plain old Italian.

Second of all, my husband ordered the gaucho steak, recommened over the lasagne by the waitress. When he got it, it was a flat steak with some kind of tendon on it reminiscent of brisket. I tried a bite and it tasted like liver. I ordered the pesto fettucine and it was okay, but I could have done the same thing with dry pasta and a pack of Knorr seasoning from the market.

So...if anyone has been here (then and now), can you tell me if the place has changed ownership within the last 5-7 years, and if our dining experience was an unusual one?
