Puerini's in Newport, RI

We dined here after my partner has dined here several times over the years. He has always enjoyed his meals here. We started out with the pesto bread which consisted of 2 pieces about 6" in length for $5.95. It was good. We both ordered the pasta with bolognese sauce. It was good, not great but good but I was surprised how small the portion was. I am not a big eater by no means at all, I usually am able to only eat half a meal and I bring the rest home. I was able to eat the entire portion. In my opinion bolognese is a very thick meaty sauce and this was lacking meat and not a thick hearty sauce at all. This was priced at $18.95. It was alot of money for the portion size. I know times are tough and food costs have risen but come on????? Another thing that caught my eye is that no bread is brought to any tables at all. Granted we ordered bread as an appetizer but we noticed no other table received any bread. The deseert menu was very poor, the only choices seemed like tartufo,ice cream and cream, ice cream and ice cream? There was one chocolate cake at $10 bucks per slice(what?) and something else I cannot remember. We decided to find a real ice cream place on the way home back to CT and actually found a place in RI called Brickley's ice cream in Wakefield which was excellent. I don't think we will be running back here any time soon.
