Costra Nostra was intended to appeal to Salve Regina students. I understand how you feel regarding the dumb name, I am surprised the City of Newport approved that name. But the fact is a large portion of Salve students come from NY and New Jersey, and many are of Italian American descent. They love "the Jersey shore," "Sopranos" and the machismo bs image of Italian Americans. Its their parent's fault. The owners of "Costra Nostra" knew their audience. They just didn't understand how long it would take a business to establish itself, how saturated the Newport pizza market is, and what a losing location the Stop & Shop plaza is.

Pizza Hut products will kill people as fast as alcohol will!

I loved Boston Chicken, but keep in mind that one of these has been in this space before, It doesn't seem that food places have had any luck in this location.

Yeah, all we need in Newport is another place to get drunk.

I would like to see a good Greek or Mid Eastern restaurant. After living in Brooklyn, I miss mousaka, spinach pie and falafel.
