People come from all over Rhode Island for the remarkable Italian food at Mike's Kitchen, located in an unmarked VFW hall where the ambience can only be described as '1958 suburban patriotic.' But folks don't mind the time warp, because they come to Mike's for the food: delicious things such as stuffed clams, snail salad, seafood Diablo, and wonderfully creamy polenta. The reasonable prices are a bonus.
