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.

We always go to Federal Hill when we visit Providence. Not only for a nice dinner but also to walk the street and people watch. We enjoy listening to the music and getting desert at Pastiche.

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.
