Grilled Rhode Island-style pizza, made famous by one particular restaurant in the ’80s, is a unique feature on the menu at Bar ’Cino. It’s not the Rhode Island pizza we’re used to (which is cold and has no cheese - basically the anti-pizza), but it’s actually very good. If you’re in the mood for pizza, but want something on the lighter side, there’s probably no better pie. There are also some quality cocktails here, like the chocolate margarita or one with lemonade and Laphroaig. Unlike Pauly D, this spot has greatly improved our impression of our southern neighbors.
