Recently I had my 1st visit to the Blue Grotto on Federal Hill in Providence, RI. My wife had been there numerous times. It was an early dinner on a Sunday and the restaurant was not crowded when we arrive without reservations. We were seated immediately and our waiter was very attentive and made some fine recommendations. The food was excellent as was the service that was quick and unobtrusive, the atmosphere is very nice and the walk to the restaurant took us by many interesting stores. We will be back.
