About the restaurant
Casually elegant Cafe Nuovo, at the Gondola Landing on Providence's famed Riverwalk, has been hailed by the New York Times and singled out by the Providence Journal as "RI's contribution to world class dining." The scenic waterside setting is matched only by the "fresh, seasonal flavor of Cafe Nuovo's contemporary American cuisine and heavenly dessert creations." Through glass curtain walls or while dining al fresco on the piazza, patrons enjoy attentive service and commanding city views while the river and gondolas roll by. Free valet parking evenings. **Sunday Open for Waterfire, Graduations, some Holidays or private functions

Saw this restaurant across the street from my hotel. Decided to give it a try. One of the specials was pasta with garlic/butter sauce, shrimp, peas, corn, radicchio. Strange combination, but it was quite tasty. I always order crème brûlée when it’s on the menu, and Cafe Nuovo’s was excellent!

Food was very good, made with fresh ingredients. The portions were fair to the cost of the entree. The staff were very nice, polite and attentive. The scenery was great! Cozy spot with great food, great staff. We met the owner, Stefan. Very nice guy who greeted us upon on entry and asked us on our way out how our meals and experience was. That goes a long way with me. And by the way, the bloody Mary's were really awesome! We will definitely be going back!
