Great food and service. I would recommend this restaurant in Providence as well as its two other restaurants of the same name in East Greenwich and Smithfield. Reservations are a must.

This is supposed to be one of Providence's finest. Our meal was fine but I wouldn't say it was great. Also, the neighborhood was not the best to walk around -- lots of tatoo parlors and such. They do offer free valet parking.More
