We started off with the bread basket. It came out warm enough so the butter melted right over it (yum)- also the crispy little breadsticks were covered with rosemary and other delicious flavors... a good start to the meal!
Next came the soup/salads:
Definitely should have ordered this guy with the dressing (and parmesan cheese for that matter) on the SIDE...this thing was drenched in it...also a little ridiculous to charge $3.95 for this bowl of lettuce....
Nancy got the Lobster Bisque and claimed it was A.ma.zing.... Also it's fair to mention that the restaurant was freeeezing so even though I have little to no interest in lobster bisque...the warm steam coming off of it made me pretty jealous...
Mushroom Ravioli Al Forno
Baked in our creamy Alfredo sauce, topped with toasted Parmesan bread crumbs and tomatoes
Tracy really enjoyed this dish. (Although she still claims that Olive Garden's is better)
Braised Beef Fettuccine
With cremini mushrooms, garlic, fire-roasted tomatoes and red wine veal sauce with a touch of cream
I had this. It good and the beef was tender, but it was very very salty. I probably wouldn't order this particular dish again.
Tuscan Grilled Pork Chop
Center-cut, marinated in-house and seared on the grill, with mashed potatoes
Kathie really enjoyed this pork chop.
For dessert our waitress brought out one of those trays full of all the fake desserts so you can pick one (so cheesy but also so helpful!) desserts are actual sizes that they come in- aka- not so big that 20 people need to split them. love that!
Delicious Warm Cappuccino
All in all Brio is a pretty good place in Newport to go before a movie.
