Thought it would be more "Italy-ish" but just mainly restaurants with a few food shops and a liquor store and a few boutiques, though not very good ones. Mainly a place for eating out and going to bars. Lots of empty storefronts.

We had a fabulous Italian dinner at Camille’s, the next day we strolled the Main Street, had desserts and coffee, and then did some window shopping. Loved the old fashioned Italian Deli/ Market.

This is an over-hyped area of Providence. I’m sure at one time this was an exciting place but now it’s just an old, dirty area with a few decent restaurants and 1 or 2 food shops that sell authentic Italian groceries and meats.

But parking impossible unless valet available. Streets crowded with traffic. Decided to forgo stopping here,although have been before, when in the proper mood for crowds everywhere. Not tonight, though.

Lots of Italian restaurants and markets but nothing else. This is a lunch or dinner place only. Nothing to really see.
