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.

Go to Constantino's for a great outdoor experience with live music...different performers every night. You will feel like you are dining in down town Tuscany... Many other restaurants to choose from. Enjoy the walk through the neighborhood.

I was born here and always go back to Federal Hill when I travel back. So many memories,, The eateries are second to none; Venda Ravoli, Casterta Pizza, Sciotio Bakery are my favorites.

Go to the restaurants, people watch, eat the good food, talk to the locals, grab a desert, have some wine and enjoy the culture of Little Italy. We loved it.

There is a river in downtown Providence and have Gondola rides during Waterier events. Reservations required. Not quite Italy but awesome Italian food a short car ride away on Federal Hill.
