In the old world, in a little village near Bologna, lived the real ‘Mamma Luisa’ who cooked and inspired the next generation of family and friends to recreate in Newport the same authentic taste and atmosphere of northern Italian cuisine.

Our four cozy dining rooms situated a quaint old house make it ideal for romantic dinners & small to medium size parties.

The menu features a variety of authentic Italian dishes like antipasti, bruschetta & salads; typical pasta dishes like Bolognese, Carbonara, Ravioli, and the homemade gnocchi as well as Eggplant Parmigiana and Frutti di Mare.
Selected fresh meat, fish & seafood complete our menu with signature dishes of veal, pork, steak, sole & tuna.
Finish dinner with a cappuccino, espresso or tiramisu.

At Mamma Luisa’s we also offer a full vegetarian page together with vegan and gluten-free options.

Our extensive wine &beer list will transport you to the different regions of Italy and you will find also handpicked gems from around the world

This a very sweet and charming place for dinner. Especially if you visit during off peak evenings and times. The food is great and the wine list is extensive and reasonably priced.
Service is friendly and attentive. This a 50 year old family owned and operated restaurant that really shows it’s true value.

Amazing Tagliatelle al ragu Bolognese with homemade pasta and rich ragu. Highly recommend their eggplant parmigiana made in classic Italian manner. Great wine list. Amazing ambience and wonderful service.

I went with my 17 month old daughter and wasn't sure how it would be since the restaurant is fancy. She was good (thank god) but the staff was so nice. The food was amazing and I would go back next time I'm in Newport!

This is a delightful little place and refreshing break from the hustle & bustle of traditional large restaurants. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. An absolutely lovely evening.

This restaurant was really amazing from the service, to the food it was all we could want an more. It is located in a cool part of Newport with a nice Irish bar down the street for a cocktail after. Love it here.

The food was delicious, the service was great and the ambience was beautiful. We had one night to enjoy dinner in Newport for our anniversary and we are so glad we chose this restaurant. We were able to sit at a window table and it was so romantic. We will definitely be back on our next visit.
