We were staying in Newport and needed a place for good food without the hype that a lot of places around the Newport area seem to have. Our hotel suggested Sabatino's - we are so glad they did. Good honest food withouit paying for fru-fru.
The next morning we returned and purchased four pounds of their house-made sausage.
You need a reservation on weekends! A bit tricky to find but TomTom led us there.
