Elizabeth’s Portofino Tuscan Grille
897 Post Rd, Warwick, RI 02888 • (401) 461-8920

As you enter the restaurant, the rich golden tones and the soft lighting make you feel like you just walked into Portofino, Italy. Elizabeth and her family have added their personal touches such as being greeted by Elizabeth or her two children, biscottis with all hot drinks, and a delicious creme lemonciello served after dinner with pizzelles are just a few ‘extras’ to make you feel at home.

All of these special touches make this an inviting restaurant to have dinner any night of the week or to celebrate a special occasion. Elizabeth’s Portofino is a place where you can come casually dressed and be seated in the cafe which hosts the beautiful hand-painted Portofino seaside mural, or you can be seated in the elegant dining room which is filled with flowers and candlelit tables. Both share the aroma of the kitchen which is serving hearty ethnic Italian dishes and light fare as well. You can’t pass up the roasted garlic served with warm bread and extra virgin olive oil brought to every table. Also, in the warmer weather, come check out the outdoor patio overlooking the cranberry pond. Come see the old meet the new. Elizabeth of Portofino’s is here to stay

The Tree House Tavern & Bistro
1094 Centerville Rd • Warwick RI 02886

History runs deep at the Tree House Tavern. For 38 years mother Aline and son Michael have been in business, starting out as florists and slowly evolving into the culinary phenomenon that is the modern-day bistro.  People come for the ambiance; people come for the food.  Everyone who visits is impressed with both. First, the interior décor, blends modern art, lighting, and floral arrangements into a farmhouse that dates back to the 1850s.  The wood floors are original, and the table tops, bar, and accent pieces are all sourced from local Rhode Island hardwoods and custom-built.  Guest weave through multiple dining rooms, a piano room, and then out to the award-winning grounds. Set back is the mighty woodshed, which houses a bar and tables, perfect for an evening savoring unique cocktails and a wide assortment of beer and wine. Enshrined with impeccable gardens, this Eden in the heart of Warwick is absolutely worth the visit.

The Tree House Tavern has convenient hours serving Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner with menus that are creative, seasonal, and exciting.  Small plates include bar food favorites with a local flair, including pizza, pulled pork nachos, and a smoked salmon board highlighting some of the many selections.  There are also inventive salads, hearty large plates, and an assortment of sandwiches and chowders that are, well, marvelous!  Handmade with frequent renditions, the deserts will blow your mind. 

The ample space is available for weddings, parties, High Tea, and other events. The Tree House offers buffet and table-served options for guests.  A visit is an adventure and will transport any guest into a relaxed state, a stone’s throw from home on Route 2!
