About the restaurant
Gracie’s is committed to providing an unforgettable dining experience. Great lengths are taken to ensure each dish highlights local seasonal ingredients. Our team works closely with local farmers, fishermen, brewers, winemakers, and distillers to bring you the freshest ingredients available. Gracie’s team is trained to accommodate food allergies and a wide range of dietary restrictions.

We are conveniently located in downtown Providence’s theater district (across from Trinity Rep and a short walk from PPAC). We are also close to the Dunkin Donuts Center, the RI Convention Center, Brown University, RISD, Johnson and Wales University, and Providence College.

We believe in full transparency; a 22% service fee (Teamshare) is added to each check to compensate our team of trained professionals with a consistent and reliable salary. Additional gratuity is optional and will be dispersed to the Hospitality Team.

Thank you for choosing Gracie’s and supporting our passion.

About the restaurant
Taverns have had a constant important presence in American life since the late 1600's. Many of them, which were attached to inns, were opened as resting places for travelers needing a place to stop, relax and fortify themselves. Of course the local residents frequented the taverns too, purchasing drinks and meals as well as participating in lively conversations. Taverns were the focal point for neighbors to come together, exchange news, talk of politics, and share in the general feeling of conviviality. Taverns were firmly established as gathering places for the light hearted socializing, serious talk, and of course, a
hearty meal accompanied by a tasty libation or two.
In this American tradition, we at Mill’s Tavern welcome you with genuine enthusiasm. Our staff is warm, friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. So please come, relax, visit with friends and family. You will leave refreshed and nourished, body and soul.

I have always had a wonderful experience at Cappricio's. Vincenzo, and now his son, have always greeted me with open arms and treat me as family. The service is always perfect and the food impeccable. It will always be my favorite restaurant in Rhode Island.

About the restaurant
A favorite of Julia Child - Pot au Feu Bistro is so much more than a restaurant... Established in 1972, our cozy Bistro is the oldest French Bistro in America. Pot au Feu Bistro kicked off the Providence Restaurant Renaissance being the first to offer something other than “steak, spaghetti and chow mien”.
Located in the Historic Downtown we are just minutes from all the hotels and convention center.

About the restaurant
Please note, our outdoor dining is seated on a first come, first served basis. We do not reserve tables on the patio; we apologize for any inconvenience.

For 30 years, locals have become regulars and traveling foodies have raved. What can we say? We are flattered, grateful and more than ever, determined to exceed your expectations. For this reason we recently underwent a comprehensive renovation, updating and upgrading every facet of our restaurant, from design and equipment to menu and energy. We are so proud of the result and we know you are going to love it.

We invite you to join us to experience Basta for yourself. Our locally sourced, internationally influenced menu, AVPN Certified Neapolitan pizzas and robust wine offering will combine to create an unforgettable experience for you and your friends or family.

We look forward to serving you soon!

Excellent meals! Our food was served piping hot. Rigatoni bolognese was very flavorful and there was no skimping on the ground meats. The serving of veal parmigiana was huge and there was enough left over for another meal. We never felt rushed to relinquish our table. The table of 3 dining next to us lingered for 15-20 minutes after paying their bill and not once did a staff member give them the “hairy eyeball” to get them to leave. Nice! We dined on a Friday night. Very busy and the noise level was high, but that was expected. If only Basta could find a way to dampen the noise level just a bit. All in all an excellent dining experience. Can’t wait to return!

We had an amazing experience celebrating our anniversary. We were greeted with a Happy Anniversary card signed by restaurant employees then that was followed by a great server which we never got her name..( shame on us ). We were there for the Tomahawk Tuesday special and it was a food euphoric experience and finished off with the chocolate lava cake. We will be back again and not just for a special occassion.

Weather was nice so we sat outside. My wife and I tried the PF Feast. Saved a lot with this promo they are currently offering. Egg drop soup is the best! Since the last time we ate there, the dumplings has changed yet again in the way they serve it but it is one of our favorite! Lo Mein is the best made from scratch!
