  1. Check out Al Forno or New Rivers -- both very good!

    1. Wow,thanks windupbird-checked web site for new rivers looks great!

      1. Ristorante Romanza on Wickenden Street is really nice, with three fireplaces, one in each room. Excellent Italian cuisine, and the prices are pretty decent. It's BYO, though!

          I'm pretty sure Ristorante Romanza is no more (as of very recently).

        2. Superb recs so far, but I'd strongly urge you to check out the New England board (this thread will likely be moved there anyway). There are hundreds of great Providence threads there for every cuisine and price range you could want.

          As long as we're on the subject, I'll throw in a controversial rec for Red Stripe in Wayland Square. It has its detractors, but I had a fantastic order of moules frites there for lunch recently, and can't wait to go back!

          1. thank you everyone-i am new to chow and don't know all the ins and outs
