The garlic bread was doughy. Them mushrooms... More

The food was great. Atmosphere funky - you eat surrounded by books, which are for sale. There was a guitar playing singer there the night we were and she was good. A memorable and good evening.

Everything is homemade here; authentic Italian from an east coast family. Atmosphere is cozy and intimate, but casual and comfortable. Live music is offered most nights, so check out who's playing. Have loved everything we've tried so far including the manicotti, pasta with pesto sauce, seafood lemon alfredo, and chocolate orange cheesecake.

My husband and I tried this restaurant expecting a meal and experience desscribed by the reviews. We were very disappointed. The food was not very good. A glass of wine was$7.75!! The music was fine but did not fit the Italian Theme. If you are looking for Stouffer's Lasagna this is a great place to get it!

All-you-can eat one night a week, and the homemade sauce is just excellent - tangy without being too overpowering. Last summer I stopped in for their lasagna, and that was quite good too. Plus there's been live music both times - local artists make you want to linger longer over your food and drink.

We picked Green Gables with the hopes for good food and a fun atmosphere. We were only in Newport for 24 kid-free hours so this was our one dinner out. We were not disappointed! The atmosphere was great, we arrived just after 6:30pm and the live music had just started. Clean Slate I believe. There was one table left and... More

Yes people go to the beach for seafood, but make an exception for Green Gables Italian Cafe! We had the cheese lasagna and the spaghetti with meat sauce. One taste and it was obviouis the owners / cooks were from New York. Don't let the ambiance scare you away - you won't be disappointed with your meal!

I hate Alfredo pasta. My wife got their lemon Alfredo and it was great. Not gloppy white paste like most others. I chat with the owners every time we go and talk food. Overlook the odd place where the restaurant is. The food is worth it.

You can't go wrong with any of the main pasta dishes. I loved the potato gnocchi, but was rather jealous of my daughter's angel hair pasta with lemon garlic sauce and spouse's manila clams with red sauce. Fortunately, everyone shares. There's live music in the evenings of people playing for tips. It's hit-or-miss, but adds to the charm. I was... More

Went there tonight for dinner with my daughter and husband- the live music was so mellow and pleasant and not too loud. All of our food was amazing...
