Fantastic Italian Dining in Newport: Mamma Luisa Ristorante Italiano
Mamma Luisa Ristorante Italiano is a great choice for romantic fine dining in the Newport, Rhode Island area. The interior is decorated with a classy, home-style Italian elegance. The menu includes a variety of traditional Italian dishes, including vegetarian options, which was a big plus for me.
The Ravioli di Zucca, which is a Butternut Squash Ravioli, with roasted peppers, sage, and pine nuts, in a creamy sauce was the best I have ever had! I should have ordered another plate to take home with me!
The Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino, which Mike ordered, consisted of delicious pasta simmered with olive oil, garlic, crushed red peppers, mushroom, and olives.
Both entrees were reasonably priced at $16.75 and $14.95. Smaller sizes are available for a $3.50 discount, however, I would stick with the regular size as the portions are filling but not enormous. Update: As of 2022, prices are now $25 and $22 for each dish.
