Food was excellent but VERY small portions which is classic Italian. Small portions excellent quality and lots if small portions. Better than lots of food that is marginal in my opinion. I found it to be extremely over priced though.
We called at the last minute and were able to get a table for two due to a cancellation. What a pleasure. Each day 5 courses are prepared to perfection with southern italian flare. The owner and host serves each course generally and explains the...preparation and unique composition of each dish. Specialty wine and a full bar are available.More
Recommemdation: when you call the restaurant and leave a voice mail about making a reservation, put their number in your phone. You don't want to miss the callback because you will want to eat here that badly. We had the most magical experience here last...night. You are made to feel like family from the moment you walk in the door. It's an intimate atmosphere where there are maybe only 16 seats and although some tables are separated, it's conducive to getting to know your fellow customers as well as the beautiful family who runs the place. There's no menu, everything is made fresh daily and they only use in-season ingredients. The 5 courses are expertly, lovingly made and brought to your table as they're ready. Highly recommend the wine pairings with each course and hearing about the reasons they've carefully curated the choices from different family-run wineries in Southern Italy. Drinks and dessert are extra but so what, treat yourself. It's well worth the experience. We'll definitely come back here the next time we're in Providence.More
The service is great and the food is superb -- the meal itself was cooked to perfection. Just keep in mind that the meal is fixed, so you get what is cooked that night, and that the overall price is closer to three stars as...opposed to two stars, as often advertised.More
I am an Italian American who's' mother is a great cook. This place is right on par with her cooking (tough comparison). If you are lucky enough to anchor a reservation, you should immediately jump on it. Everything from the five courses, to the wine...pairing, down to the hospitality of the owner, it was superb....
Umberto was able to get us reservations the day of and I’m thankful he could! It’s a five course meal with a glass of wine for each course. The food was so delicious and unique and paired well with the wines! Umberto is very friendly...and passionate about his restaurant. We had a fantastic time.More
I recommend everything here as I have not yet had something I didn't care for.. the Mozzarella balls were out of this world.. and the Espresso Martini's are the best in Providence. (hands down). The owner "Umberto" is great and very accommodating. I'll definitely be...back soon.More
Incredible night out. Umberto and his family provide an incredible authentic Italian experience from food to wine. A small shop that bring imported recipes and wine to the east coast . We will become regulars!!!
I wish there were more places like Enoteca. Umberto is a great host and makes you feel beyond welcomed. This restaurant is a quaint family operated business, with a total of 18 seats and dinner is a no menu prefixed 5 courses ($65 a person)....While the food itself is lovely, the wine pairing is not to missed. The pairing costs $15 a glass (full pours), per person, you can tap out at anytime and can do half glasses (which is what we did). The wine Umberto paired with each dish were PERFECT and made sense, he also did a great job explaining the wines and what made them unique.
Seeing as there is no menu, if you are a picky eater or have serious dietary issues I would not recommend - no one wants to be the difficult person!More
We were fortunate enough to get a reservation here after multiple attempts. It is a fixed 5 course meal ($65) with wine pairings ($15 per person per glass) with each course. The atmosphere was very nice and personal (family run joint). The owner personally meets...all the guests and explains each meal and wine pairing. Our first three courses were fantastic, especially the fresh mozzarella. The next two were good, but not great for the price point. Unfortunately, this was not a 5 star experience for the price you pay and it would take several improvements to become one. It would have been nice to have the wine, which was amazing, decanted and room temperature instead of cold (especially the reds). Cloth instead of paper napkins and new silverware with each coarse. Lastly, the owner speaks at lightning speed when describing the wine/meal and it feels you're being rushed at times.More

They only have a handful of tables and they have no problem to fill those few tables. It's like going to someone's house. Honestly this restaurant isn't scalable with their current formula but that's part of what makes the experience unique.They'll never call you back, you just need to be persistent until they answer the phone.
