Great restaurants, Italian food to die for, great place to take a stroll and get a bite to eat. Festivals are always fun on the Hill, even did some dancing one Saturday night!! Be sure to visit the bakeries and bring some treats home!

We drove here from spending time in downtown Providence. It is such a quaint little town. We are so happy we stopped here for lunch. Lots of restaurants and shops. Just a nice place to wind down, walk around, and enjoy your day!
