Three of Aunt Josephina's Meatballs Served With Sardella's Marinara Sauce
The only issue we had was a party of 6 folks were incredibly loud and overbearing. They were yelling and holding a loud conversation without regard for other parties in the room. Other parties were complaining.
The food and service was fabulous!
Great cocktails, entrées, and dessert with great service.
We have been to Sardellas many times when we visit Newport. We love it. Food is always good and we love the atmosphere.
We had a reservation for 7pm. We were seated at a table by the hostess but it took 20 minutes for someone to come over to us and say they would be back with bread and waters. The waitress nor the hostess mentioned to us that they were understaffed or said “thank you for your patience. We will be with you shortly.” We could tell from observation that the staff was slammed. I know the restaurant industry was hit hard by the pandemic and they don’t have enough staff currently but I do wish they gave a simple acknowledgement of the situation and that would have made a difference for us. We support you and love this place.
Anyway, we ended up moving from the table we were seated at to the bar where we had our drinks and dinner. Jeff, the bartender, was AMAZING! Our food was so delicious. Service was excellent. I can’t say enough about our experience at the bar. Thank you! We will be back to Sardella’s no matter what.
The food was amazing!! The service was great and we had a great time!! Will def be back!
Great location, was convenient to walk to.
Would recommend outdoor seating which was in a converted area bc it had a low noise level, indoor was very loud and hot.
Food was delicious!
Should of read reviews. Place was packed and horrible service. Waitress got drinks wrong and food took forever. Didn’t get utensils, people around us were complaining. This place could be Great all they care about is moving bodies. It a good “pizzeria/pub.. I thing on tap. Ran out of milk for coffee. No Ice cream. Never again. !!!! The place next door looked better and people were e joying food.
Hi WIZ COWBOY I read the reviews too and I thought they looked pretty good... Sorry for your experience *Ice cream, chicken wings, Heitz Cabernet from Napa, waiters, dishwashers, busboys are all back-ordered during these times. You don't have to come back but please be patient during these times. * grocery stores, restaurants, car dealers and probably your job are feeling the effects. Update: Ice-cream came in yesterday
Bad night for the kitchen They were very backed up they got our order wrong and many of the people around us had problems too with their orders
We go here all the time and usually it’s great but this was a bad night
Wonderful dinner. Food was delicious! Only issue we had is that we were seated by a rather loud bachelorette dinner.
Thank you for the review! And for 5 stars!!! I apologize for the loud noise, we try to accommodate all groups, and sometimes they get loud, or in the case of last night, the children cry after a long day at the beach. I would have been happy to move you or talk to the loud party. The next time you decide to visit, please ask for Greg or Jane.
Food was good the service was good but the way they had tables set up in the room we were in was an issue. There was a group of young twenty something drunk girls celebrating a birthday that kept going in and out of the door one foot behind me. When we asked them to use the front door they gave us attitude. Our server helped by locking one of the doors but the girls kept going out the other one right by our table in addition to staff using the same door. Very unacceptable. My husband went to complain to management and ask that he just ask the girls to use the front door to go in and out but HE DID NOTHING. We were celebrating my birthday and after spending $150 on dinner it was very disappointing and left us with an uneasy feeling. It will be a long time before we would eat there again.
Anonymous Thank you for the 2 stars. I apologize for the loud noise. I talked to the ladies, and they ate and paid their checks. I asked if you wanted to move to a different table. You refused.
Always good food and service! Always on my Newport list!
Edible and disappointing. After seeing this place was voted #1 Italian food in Newport, my wife and I chose to spend our 20th wedding anniversary there. What a huge mistake! The overall experience was really bad. The food was way over priced for portion and quality. The fried mozzarella was burnt and small. The arancini were OK but lacked flavor. My veal parmigiana was OK but the pasta was broken and barely sauced. My wife ordered the Bolognese which was no more than a broken up meatball in sauce. The waitress could have cared less about us. We had to constantly ask for items. We even gave dessert a chance after such a terrible meal. The cheesecake was the best thing we ordered. We have had better food at local pizza joints. We won’t be back!
Fun, casual place. Great pasta dishes and salads. Friendly service. Nice wine selection. Parking can be tricky, because if you find a spot outside, you have to pay the meter. You can park in the shopping center lot out the back of the restaurant. A little hot inside so try to sit out on the patio. (It's enclosed but the windows are open.)
40th wedding anniversary
Excellent food and service
Always been my favorite restaurant in Newport. Unfortunately it wasn’t good this time. Food portions were much smaller. Quality was mediocre. Had their sauce and was very disappointed this time. Definitely not what we were used too. Price seemed higher than in past.
Sauce was acidic. Bolognese was meatless. Pizza just so so. Food seemed old. I would not recommend. Wonder where the good reviews came from?
Food was good but came with the appetizers. So a bit quick for us. Great drinks.
Our waitress Emma was great. Super friendly and attentive. Food was very good. The meatball appetizer was delicious. Would recommend the pizza. The inside was huge and nice ambiance. It was a very good experience.
The food is always fresh and the staff always friendly. The Chicken Romano is fantastic.
We totally enjoyed our dining experience at Sardella’s. Everyone’s entrée was delicious. Chicken piccata steak ravioli and and Bolognese. The wait staff was charming.
The food was very good (calamari, short ribs, lasagna). My wife tried a glass of the cab and chardonnay, but didn't like either. The craft cocktails were very good. The service was ok. We needed to ask for bread. The cannoli's were ok.
Always a fantastic dinner, the pizza is delicious.
I ordered a pizza here because sardellas sidekick imbroglio was voted best pizza in Newport. It was soggy cold and flavorless. Very disappointed. The other three meals ordered were just ok
We always enjoy the food, the staff is very friendly, never disappointed.
We ordered immediately at the table, a salad a pasta and a pizza however we waited over an hour from when we received our salad which was subpar at best to actually receive our meal. Once we received our meal, the food was boring to say the least and the service seemed overwhelmed with a half of full restaurant.
Food was great!
The food is average at best. The wine bottles are extremely overpriced! There are way better places to go for dinner.
I had one of the best arancini and espresso martini here. Would highly recommend.
Excellent service, attentive and not annoying. Outstanding food..will definitely return..very good value
Our dinner and atmosphere was amazing!
Had a great visit with my family. The fried Mozzarella was delicious and all of our entrees where superb! Compliments to staff, tye chef and the ownership for keeping such a great restaurant.
Server was good. Appetizers were good, meatballs and rice balls. Lobster ravioli was okay, sauce was nice. Veal parm was disappointing. Not too expensive.
Excellent food and service !
We were very happy with the table spacing and felt safe. Food was very good and service was excellent.
The sauce was almost tasteless. Other tables were served bread, we were not. When the salads arrived the assistant waiter had no idea what it meant to ask for pepper. The meatballs were very good. Our experience was just okay. There are much better places to eat in Dover. Sorry Sardella's - I went on my 1st date there 29 years ago - just not the same.
Always a great experience, the food is always fresh and the staff always friendly. You must dine at Sardellas when in Newport
Very nice ambience, food came out quickly and was tasty. The hostess and wait staff were very friendly and accommodating! Overall it was a very good experience. I’d definitely eat here again.
This was our second time dining there.
The eggplant Parmesan is exceptional.
We’re definitely adding this to every trip we make to Newport!
