Have been to Constantino’s several times. The overall experience has diminished. Our server was great as we were short on time.
Outdoor seating very nice.. food was excellent and generous portions. Quick service. Music was a little loud but festive
We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Good and ambiance were absolutely fabulous. I can’t wait to go back. Most fun I have had in a while!
This is far one of the best restaurants on Federal Hill.
The outdoor venue with the live music was great! It was a fun, lively environment! The appetizer seemed very expensive for what we got and the Caesar salad was small and tasteless, definitely not worth the $10.95 price. The chicken piccata was excellent, I’d definitely order it again. Valet parking super convenient. Service was excellent. I will definitely be back!
Service was mediocre. We waited several minutes after three different requests for utensils so we could eat our salads. We then waited nearly an hour for our entrees. Once we got the entrees we had to ask twice for my wife to have a spoon for her spaghetti. Perhaps our experience was a reflection of staffing issues. We do understand that. It was just not the kind of service we are accustomed to at this establishment.
It was The Feast! So it was super crowded and busy. Our server was excellent. The food was delicious 😋
Great location but food came out lukewarm, waiter was nice but could have been more attentive.
My server was awesome the food was excellent
I enjoyed the music they had too
Couldn’t wait to bring my daughter and her friends there during RISD parents weekend. Love the food, the vibe, the whole amazing operation. You guys rock!! We will be back again for sure!
Truly enjoyed this lively place with delicious food and friendly service while visiting Providence. Highly recommend!
Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Staff was considerate of customers using outdoor seating and brought heating without asking. Would recommend!
Beautiful night for outdoor dining. Our waiter Vinny was
The food here is amazing and I love that there is complimentary valet. Each time I have been, the service leaves something to be desired. I feel like I have to track down my waiter and ask multiple times for things (I believe it’s because it’s so busy and they are also so nice so I almost feel bad for leaving this review.)
Wonderful outdoor dining experience, food is amazing & service is good as well. Sebastian is the best
51st wedding Anniversary for our friends. They loved the singers/musicians and the ambiance. The food came out of the kitchen very slowly.
There was a large mob of people (20-30) standing around the host stand waiting to check in with their reservations. Once we shoved our way to the front we were seated in a far away corner away from the water fountain even though we requested both in the reservation and in person to sit by the fountain. Immediately after seating us as far away from the fountain as possible they seated three similarly sized parties by the water fountain. We had to wait 15-20 minutes to get plates or be spoken to by a waiter.
An hour long dinner turned into several hours due to poor management and customer service. It was our worst anniversary to date.
Food was amazing and service was stellar, can't wait to go back!
Delicious food and we had a greet time. We ate at the bar and the service was wonderful! The only problem is that we had a reservation for a table but were seated in a back room with a view of an open closet. After a few minutes we got up and left and headed to the bar, so glad we did !
The food was excellent as always and the new waitress Christine was great!!!! Such a great time!!
The food was just ok, the waiter was surly, unfriendly and unhelpful
As always a great meal and service, the only thing I would say is please up grade/date the inside seats, I fully understand that COVID has limited some income but when you almost fall through or the padding is missing it’s time.
Outstanding venue. Great service and food
Took my mom for her favorite eggplant dish and it was excellent as always! Try the limoncello flute, you will not be disappointed.
The perfect spot for dining Al Fresco!
Cocktails, calamari, wine and pasta exceptional. Casual friendly atmosphere was much appreciated, we socialized with tables around us, so much fun. A great date night for this old married couple!
With the return to Providence for a nice weekend, I looked forward to visiting Constantino's once again. The good : Food was great as expected.
The bad: With the increase in outdoor dining the number of tables has risen.
My table half a block away was a small folding table. when seated it had two salt shakers no pepper no silverware or napkins and no QR code placard to access the menu.
The waiter was nice but so frantic throughout. We never got the calamari we ordered. Drinks arrived after the main entrees.
It was a mad house and that took from the experience.
The hostess was overwhelmed which took away from the experience from the start.
I still consider it to be one of the best places in Providence. I will try again next time I am in town.
Good was great and service outstanding
Always fantastic! Dining at this restaurant is like going to Italy. Sit outside, people watch and enjoy the fountain while you dine on Italian specialties like caprese with prosciutto or arancini. Delicious Marsala and piccata. Authentic Neapolitan pizza. You can’t get better on Federal Hill. A must when visiting Providence, RI!
Great family dinner!
Very slow service.. for sub par food.
The band was fantastic, great date night. they were extremely unstaffed. My drink order was wrong. service ended up arrival at 630, food arrived at 8:00. But the food was fantastic. small but delicious. Willing to try again on a non busy night
Dining alfresco at this venue is something we try to do every summer. It's a fun atmosphere! Service was a little slow and some of the food was lukewarm by the time it came to the table. Our waitress was pleasant.
Everything was PERFECT!! There were 4 of us out for lunch. We made a reservation 2 hours prior to our 3pm reservation. We were happy to see the water fountain back and the live music too. Yay!! The hostess was a little grumpster, but we were seated and enjoyed music, a little dancing and 4 great meals. One pumpkin ravioli, 2 pork Ragu, I’m not sure of the third. The wait staff were all super friendly despite how busy they were. Everything was delivered promptly and by pleasant folks!
We can’t wait to come back!!
Good and service was great enjoyed eating on the plaza would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great dining experience!
appetizer was not very warm and we were asked to move table after siting with drinks for someone that wanted that table.. but dinner was good!
Waited 30 minutes to get served… they gave us a dirty table
This was an amazing Italian experience. The food was superb as was the service. There is currently construction in the area but they offer valet parking. The outdoor area is just delightful by the water fountain. Definitely a must, I don’t know how they don’t get 5 stars all the time. I left and kept raving about this place. Will most definitely be returning in the future.
