The Federal Hill neighborhood of Providence is its "Little Italy". And, perhaps no other venue exemplifies the delicious bounty available as Venda Ravioli. The center stage there is the square glass display cases filled with delicious cheeses, salumi, meats and prepared foods of every description. The staff manning the counters are very knowledgeable and outgoing. Against the walls of the... More

The smells are intoxicating as you enter Venda's. The extensive offerings of prepared food, cheese, olives, and meats are unequaled. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. This is a place that all must visit to truly experience Providence's Little Italy!

Second time for us. Lunch menu is standard, but deli counters are mind-boggling. Great selection of meats, fish and cheeses. Surrounding shelves have oils, vinegars and other condiments. If you have a car, you may have to park some distance from the establishment, but it's a nice walk in good weather. We would certainly patronize it again.

We ate at the bar during a very busy weekend. The bartender was very capable and provided excellent service (and conversation!). The food was a bit of a mixed bag -- steak and seafood dishes were very nicely prepared, but those who ordered ravioli, which is one of the house specialties, were less than wowed. Nothing wrong with it, but... More

The weather was warm and the humidity was low. Eating al fresco just seemed right. With Italianesque Pasquali Square as a backdrop we were seated and served efficiently and with good humor by our waiter (I wish I'd gotten his name). The menu was creative, the salads crisp, the pasta was al dente, the sauces divine. An excellent meal. That... More

Venda is a great place to stop in for lunch, pick up and go. Lots of hot and cold choices. Excellent crusty breads and soups to go are yummy. Can get busy on weekends and lunch times so plan accordingly. In the warmer months you can sit at an outside table and take on the view of the fountain.

Overwhelming choices greet you as you enter this delightful establishment. A walk around the cases of food makes you wonder if if you can somehow narrow it down. We decided on a combination plate which the staff said would be no problem at all. They were so busy yet so pleasant. The lamb chops were sensational and we highly recommend.... More
