Overview

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.

In the summer months this is where all the neighborhood people hang out, some nights there's live music performance, outdoor dinner for all the restaurant around the square. People watching or just stroll around the stores for window shopping

We were blessed to land on a weekend when the Italian street festival was taking place. But, the restaurants - wow! If you like Italian food, this is it!

Yes historic but somewhat run down. We visited in the daytime. Possibly better during a night time celebration…

Federal Hill used to be an authentic Italian American enclave, It's festivals and small mom-n-pop businesses were full of Rhode Islanders who grew up in the neighborhood. They brought a sincerity and authenticity to the place that is now long gone. The Hill is now...More

Walking around the Federal Hill neighborhood on a warm summer night was enjoyable. I recommend using Uber because parking appeared to be an issue. The live outdoor music was perfect for a summer stroll. There are many excellent restaurants to choose from. Most serve Italian...More

If you ever are in Providence when they are having the Federal Hill Stroll, this is a must do. You buy a button and around 30 restaurants let you have a small serving of one of their dishes. They are not all Italian restaurants, in...More
