Incredible Food and Great Service Every time – Saturday nights are usually busy but we really never have to wait very long since the staff does a great job keeping tables cleaned and ready. My husband and I dine at Reali's often because the food is just amazing. They have a large menu and we are never disappointed with the specials. It's not just the food we come for, we come for the service. Skeet always takes care of us. Makes us feel at home from the minute we walk in the door. He's extremely personable and makes us laugh. Place wouldn't be the same without him. Just ask about the lamb - you'll see!
Place is small but cozy and never too noisy. We will definately keep coming back.
Horrible Dining and Life Lesson Experience – Can't believe I have to pretend that this restaurant deserves even one single star. I regret spending time and money at Reali's. Had I known that I would be subjected to an ingnorant server who felt the need to share his racist views with us, I certainly would have declined the invitation to eat at this sub par restaurant. Not only were we embarrassed by the waiter's lack of humanity, we were sorely disappointed in the service. I have never experienced such a bizarre and uncomfortable dining experience. Our water was never filled, we never received drinks that we ordered, and the kitchen was fresh out of meatballs and tiramisu (in an Italian restaurant no less...) Guess the waiter was unaware that we are in the process of adopting an African American child... frankly I regret not walking out the door, had we not been out with another couple we surely would have... Like they say, you can't judge a book by it's cover. And Reali's quaint , "authentic" image is nothing less than a waste of good commercial space where a real restaurant should reside.
Excellent Food! – Reali's is one of the finest Italian restaurants I've been to. The atmosphere is homey and romantic with red table cloths and white linen napkins. The menu is extensive, with additional daily specials. I've been there several times. The food is always delicious. Every dish is made to order. Their veal is so tender and tasty. The lamb is the best I've ever had. It is truely one of the finer restaurants we have in Rhode Isand.
Food is good! – I visited Reali's one night when we found another restaurant was too crowded. The food was good--generally traditional Italian cuisine. The service was mediocre, as it seemed there was very unexperienced staff. Overall, I would give it a try if you haven not been there.
