You've got to visit the Square if you come to Providence. Authentic Italian atmosphere, al fresco dining, and often live music. Your choice of many types of ethnic foods but the Italian fare is especially great! You can eat a simple meal at Angelos, surrounded by many locals conversing in their native Italian, a more sophisticated meal at Siena or... More

Great place to take in the ambience of an Italian piazza without leaving the country. Located in Providence's Federal Hill district the piazza is surrounded by fantastic restaurants with live music permeating the air during the evenings. This is the place to relax and enjoy an authentic Italian meal and your favorite libation.

I had no idea this even existed before I arrived for dinner at Andino's on Wednesday night during my visit to Providence. We wound up heading over to the plaza for coffee at Palmeiri's after dinner and had a great time sitting and people watching.

This is a lovely spot. It's a perfect place to have dinner outside during the day or night in the warmer months, when you'll also be treated to live music. As I describe in my review of the restaurants affiliated with Costantino's Venda Bar and Ristorante (listed on tripadvisor as Costantino's Venda Ravioli), the night I dined in DePasquale Plaza...

When we went by a few weeks ago it was embarrassing to see the young punks from the neighborhood who were trying to impress some pathetic female so they could have some quick action on a side street. The fountain is lovely to look at during the day but the ambiance is gone after dark, when the locals youth take... More

A nice spot to hang out on a summer night. There is live music on certain nights. Several good restaurants with outdoor seating. Venda is better than Costantino's, as far as food. Dolce Vita is great for coffee and drinks. The people watching is the main draw.

DePasquale is a little bit of Italian on the hill.. It reminds you of the little piazza's in Italy. It has a nice fountain up front, a nice Italian market in Venda but it can be loud with traffic, people and crowds. Not all of the places in the Piazza are good. Stick with Venda and their attitude or Dolce... More
