It’s All Sunday Gravy at Twin Oaks

Head to Cranston for Rhode Island’s favorite Italian dining tradition

Posted

Since 1933, Twin Oaks has been serving generations of Rhode Islanders, who come back time and again for everything from special occasions to casual weekday lunches. What started as a speakeasy in the basement of Eva and Bill DeAngelus’s home is now the biggest restaurant in Rhode Island, run by the third generation of the DeAngelus family. The restaurant is a time-honored tradition, yes, but that doesn’t mean they’re old fashioned. Chef Ryan Mancini recently revamped their menu, keeping classic customer favorites and adding some new things to try. Their weekly specials - several dishes only offered on certain nights of the week - will always give you a reason to go back, but if you’re going for your first time, try one of the classics, like the veal parm and baked stuffed shrimp. You won’t be disappointed.



Eat, Drink and Be Merry
There’s another reason so many milestones are celebrated at Twin Oaks - the restaurant can hold up to 700 people. In addition to the large dining rooms, there’s a lounge, and the Golden Oak room for private parties of up to 100. There’s also a beautiful outdoor patio, where diners looking for a quieter dinner can eat overlooking the lake.
