It didn’t start well when we asked for a paper menu as part of our party didn’t bring phones and couldn’t get their phones to show the menus.
We usually love Venda Ravioli, we went there specifically for this dish, ironically the Venda Ravioli from other restaurants is better than from here. Sadly we will be more likely to either purchase cold ravioli from next door, and make it at home, or go somewhere else to get pasta.
Poor service, no bread , one person doing everything, not like how Venda usually is. Very disappointed
Our waitress was phenomenal and The food was excellent
It was excellent as usual!
Overall disappointing. Service wasn’t great. Food was okay. Dishes were dirty. Plate, silverware, wine glass all had old food on them. Last drink glass smelled dirty. Servers seemed annoyed we were there.
The outdoor dining was done well. The numerous flamy heaters helped with the slight chill on a clear night. Really fabulous waiter (Ian) made the experience 110% The food came fast and was perfection. Can’t wIt to go back.
We were seated on the second floor of of the back part of the restaurant - sadly our server was less than attentive (not sure if he was new and just nervous or what the issue was). Luckily this was not the first time dining here otherwise it may have out a totally different spin on things.. the food was delicious but the rest of our experience was not the Best or even close to mediocre.
Food was delicious and hot despite sitting outside! Our only complaint is the service - while the servers were great, they were clearly overwhelmed, and we went over 40 minutes between our appetizer and entree arriving without our server even checking in. The same with the check - we had to flag someone down after 15 minutes. Not a place to go if you are in a hurry!
It was wonderful. The music and singer made the experience charming.
Love Constantino’s! It’s our go to spot on the hill!
Service was good, food came out cold ( cheese ravioli) waitress stuck her finger in it to make sure, she took my plate and kitchen microwave it, same cut ravioli was still on my plate. We went there to watch a band performance. First time having dinner there may be back
Very attentive and courteous waitstaff
Perfect day on the plaza
As a lover of Italian food, I frequent Venda once in a while because of its ambiance.
The experience was spoiled by three music bands from two different restaurants playing at the same time. I could see that a competing restaurant hired a band, but why Constantino's Venda would have a musician playing and blast recorded music from the first floor of their own restaurant is beyond me.
We were seated promptly and told our server would be right over. We waited 15 minutes and no server showed up. I went and found the hostess and told her no one had come yet and she apologized and said she’d send the server right over. Another 15 minutes and still no server so we left.
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.
Being tourists at the restaurant, and it being parents' weekend at Brown, as well as the famous Waterfire, it was extremely busy! Regardless, the waitstaff did a great job! Originally planned on eating outside, but so busy and loud, we opted for inside, which was very nice.
Food of ravioli's great, as well as my husband's veal parm good. Definitely recommend a trip to Federal Hill for this restaurant.
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
