    Went on a busy Saturday night (Pride parade) and enjoyed the beer and pizza. Waitress was there when you needed her but never felt rushed. I always enjoy getting a casual dinner here when I'm downtown Providence. Staff are always friendly.

    During gay pride day, it might be better to avoid seating guest outside and moving them inside mid dinner. Also it would be better to avoid asking your guest to leave because people are waiting. Especially when you’ve inconvenienced them by moving them and delaying their food order.

    Celebrating a friend’s birthday at Cafe Nuovo was a memorable evening. The calamari was crispy and delicious, all four of our entrees were excellently prepared ( the Duck, pork chop, sea bass and clams), and the desserts were fantastic!!! Our server was extremely professionally, pleasant and so friendly! The owner, Dimitri stopped by to greet us to ensure that all was well. This was a night to remember!! A definite return is in the future.

    We had the most amazing experience last night dining at Gracie’s. The attention to detail and fabulous service was unmatched. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and all the staff made our night so special with the decorated table, handwritten note, champagne and just the level of effort they put it. The 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing was sooo worth it. Every dish we had was incredible. I can’t speak highly enough of our experience!
