Seriously some of the worst food I've had. Avoid. There are plenty of AWESOME options in the area and this is not it.

Was clean, great atmosphere and the food was amazing 1/4 red was great last week, and I had the white earlier this evening.
The people are friendly and the customer attitudes they appear to be doing most of the right things...

Have not been in years. Was the worst food we have had in a long time! Baked stuffed lobster $20, stuffing was plain and lobster meat was mushy, my husband said he has never had mushy lobster. Baked scallops were awful. Smallest scallops I have ever seen. In a watery broth, barely baked crumbs on top, were not sweet, left a full serving behind. Margarita was a nasty mix. Will never go back

I have been going to Tweets whenever we visit my wife's Bristol family for the last 15 years. There is no better. We just fill in the appetizers as necks, calamari sicliano, snail salad, steamers. Then bring on the special white sauce -2 lbs please, you won't be disappointed.

This was the place my family went to for reunions. We all had such a great time. I agree the littlenecks are the best!! It's all I ate growing up when we went to Tweets! What wonderful memories I have. I think it is time for another family reunion!

Our family has been going to Tweet's for many years and has yet to find something we didn't like. Everything is wonderful as is the atmosphere. In days gone by as mentioned before Tweet used to roam the restaurant talking to the customers. A nice homey atmosphere.

I haven't been to Tweets since I was 15 and I just turned 55 in February. But I have read the reviews and I can see that after 40 years, it's still the same type of place....if it were up to me, it would never change! I can remember the huge platters of spaghetti, meatballs, steamed clams and littlenecks....man am I getting hungry! Anyways, I don't care what some people have to say....the boss used to wander around in an old stained apron and make sure everyone had their fill of the type of traditional food that made RI the best place on earth to eat!

We went on a Saturday. It was not busy--no wait. Food was excellent. We ordered 2 lbs of their special red sauce, pasta, and baked stuffed shrimp. Our waitress was good and the price was cheap!! -Bill

I was introduced to Balzano's in the late 60's while attending Bryant College. I have yet to come across a better value. At that time we would get a pound of spaghetti with tomato clam sauce for a dollar. Even on a college budget it was the best deal in town. Steamers were also awesome.
