The best chickpeas ever! Who knew chickpeas could taste so good or be so addictive. Lots of flavor. Kale salad so yummy. The squid and clam pasta was also delightful. The whole wheat pasta was just right. More restaurants need to serve whole wheat pasta, the taste does not suffer. The food is why we came here. Not ambiance. Yes,... More

So thrilled to stumble upon this place in Providence. Food is local, portions ate big, service was quick. Love the many layered stuff that they are doing with arts are youth needing employment options too. Hopes to get back to Providence just to visit again.

Good, fast food in a small restaurant. Looked like most people stopped by to get lunch to go. My colleague and I ate lunch there and were able to hold a business meeting. There were plenty of vegan options, and the food was satisfying. Would recommend this to anyone looking for quick food that's not "fast food"!

On a recent visit to Providence, my daughter and I decided to stop in for a quick lunch on the way to the airport. We shared only a few dishes, but each was... More

I love the location because I work around the corner and there isn't a lot of options for a vegan. I've probably gone there about a dozen times, and I've only had a couple of meals I wasn't thrilled with. Their Rueban is awesome. But sometimes their food is too salty- I had a couple of coworkers throw out their... More

AS220 really has it all--multiple gallery spaces, a performance space that has multiple events almost every night of the week, a great restaurant and bar, community classes, workshops for students, an open darkroom and print studio, artist living spaces, and so much more. It should be at the top of the "things to do in Providence" list because of the... More
