You'll know you have arrived by the huge arched gateway, with a bronzed pinecone, which marks the entry to the neighborhood.

Lovely section of Providence that is walkable and filled with great shops, restaurants and bakeries. Definitely take your camera. Some victorian homes and hipster shops mix seamlessly.

Restaurants of every sort (MOSTLY Italian, but there are others) a FABULOUS bakery (Scalia's) grocery stores with imported wonders, art galleries and live music (at times). Parking is tough, but the trouble is worth the visit.

After hearing and reading reviews of Little Italy. The hubby and I had to visit. It was a great day to walk the blocks and visit the shops and eat at Angelos. We had a great time and loved the variety of restaurants available.

This is one of the most beautiful areas of the city. The old homes, the RISD buildings and the scenery are absolutely lovely. Walk, jog or take a drive through this area - it's worth it.
