Overview

Sip a strong espresso at an outdoor cafe, grab a quick pizza for lunch or dine in style at a gourmet Italian restaurant in this historic section of the city, also know as Little Italy. You'll know you have arrived by the huge arched gateway, with a bronzed pinecone, which marks the entry to the neighborhood.

Federal Hill used to be an authentic Italian American enclave, It's festivals and small mom-n-pop businesses were full of Rhode Islanders who grew up in the neighborhood. They brought a sincerity and authenticity to the place that is now long gone. The Hill is now...More

Walking around the Federal Hill neighborhood on a warm summer night was enjoyable. I recommend using Uber because parking appeared to be an issue. The live outdoor music was perfect for a summer stroll. There are many excellent restaurants to choose from. Most serve Italian...More

Great restaurants, Italian food to die for, great place to take a stroll and get a bite to eat. Festivals are always fun on the Hill, even did some dancing one Saturday night!! Be sure to visit the bakeries and bring some treats home!

We drove here from spending time in downtown Providence. It is such a quaint little town. We are so happy we stopped here for lunch. Lots of restaurants and shops. Just a nice place to wind down, walk around, and enjoy your day!
