A vibrant urban center that offers great Italian food with an amazing atmosphere.

In the Federal Hill district of Providence, Rhode Island, there is an amazing place to visit where the area's Italian immigrants first made their homes. Tens of thousands of immigrant families packed into the narrow streets in this area. One of the earliest Italian arrivals on the Hill was Antonio Cappelli in 1909 when Irish immigrants were plenty. All along the streets were pushcarts selling every kind of fruit and vegetable imaginable. In the late 1970s, there was an effort to renovate and rehabilitate the area of Atwells Avenue. De Pasquale Square was designed by Albert Veri first and then later by Bradford Associates. The entire De Pasquale Avenue was closed off and in the center of the open space a huge, elaborate quatrefoil fountain was built. Restaurants line both sides of the square and in seasonable weather, crowds tend to gather and enjoy the live bands, food, dancing, and people-watching. The space is very popular with locals and tourists alike. The restaurants, bars, markets, cafes, bakeries, and some small family shops make it fun and convenient. There are live bands sometimes and the best Italian food you will find in the state. The area is full of vibrant colors and the style is Italian flair meets the Spanish Caribbean. The outdoor atrium is wonderful and many people gather around the fountain to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. With the shops, you can eat there or stop for some supplies like pasta, cheese, sausage, and much more for a picnic later on, a meal at home, or at your accommodation. It is a fun place for all to experience.
