In the kitchen today, we welcome Chef Kevin O’Donnell from Mother Pizzeria, making some of their signature pizzas, the Calabian Luau and the Nightshade.

He also brought some of Mother’s new Roman pizza slices along with a wheel of local Rhode Island cheese to showcase one of their boards with some honey and sourdough bread.

Mother Pizzeria, which gets its name from the starter or “Mother” used in sourdough baking, marks Chef Kevin O’Donnell’s second restaurant in Newport. His first project, Giusto, opened in 2020 to great acclaim including being named Rhode Island Monthly’s Best New Italian Restaurant.  O’Donnell partnered with two Giusto alums for the new restaurant, Chef Kyle Stamps (Executive Chef) and Lauren Schaefer (General Manager)
