DePasquale Plaza has become a popular gathering place on "The Hill," the Italian section of Providence. The beautiful fountain reminds us of piazzas in Italy.

Such a nice place to visit, stroll and dine. Love this place for the true ambience of being in little Italy. Enjoy the square, the local dining and lovely gift shop(s). You won't be disappointed!

DePasquale Plaza or DePasquale Square is located at the corner of Atwells Avenue and DePasquale Street in the Federal Hills area, also Little Italy of Providence. If you are visiting in a downtown hotel, you can walk there very easy. Walk past the Dunkin' Donuts Center, past the Hilton Hotel and up Atwells Avenue. When you see the hanging acorn,... More

On a summer night it's not uncommon to see many people sitting around the fountain and listening to the free bands that perform nightly. Amazing local restaurants offer outside seating too.

Beautiful night lights and slightly urban feel by the water... Leaves you craving a nice romantic stroll through the square. Loved passing through this area.

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...

The plaza has 4 or 5 restaurants, vendors,, and avery nice fountain to relax at. During the summer, there are opera and musical performances inthe evenings. Sit, close your eyes and relax here.
