The folks at Newport Restaurant Group know what they’re doing. Trio is their seventh restaurant in the Ocean State (perhaps you’re familiar with the Castle Hill Inn or The Mooring). As the name might suggest, Trio is a triple threat of well-crafted cuisine, spot-on service, and breathtaking views of Narragansett Bay.
The open-view kitchen hums to the tune of the seasons, taking advantage of the many local farms in the area, and does right by the fish caught within miles of the property. Most of the cooking has Italian roots, and the many pastas and pizzas are quite good, especially the “clams casino” pie, studded with spicy bits of bacon and tons of meat. And don’t miss Trio’s seafood risotto, brimming with Atlantic salmon, shrimp, squid, and clams, in a base of creamy, tomato-y Arborio rice.
