Al fresco dining in Providence?

There was a posting on the Boston board, reminding me of all the mediocre places there with outdoor seating. I'm hoping there's better in Providence. I've eaten on the patio at India on Hope St., which will do in a pinch, and also at the tables for 2 on the sidewalk at Red Stripe. I know a couple of the other spots in Wayland Sq. also have a few outside tables (La Laiterie and the sushi restaurant, I'm blanking on the name.) Anywhere I'm missing?

    1. Al Forno has a very nice patio. And the food is, of course, fabulous.

      1. The Pinelli-Marra empire has a new spot - Waterplace, overlooking the tidal basin near the mall. BEAUTIFUL outdoor patio. Decent food, very reasonably priced.

        1. good calls on al forno & the waterplace view (havent eaten there since pinelli's came in but worth a drink for the view alone...)
          can't say i'd spend the $$$ at ruth's chris but they've got a patio overlooking waterplace park, too.
          good italian at a waaaay relaxed pace - venda or dolce vita (ital or brunch - sister rest. to mediterraneo) on depasquale sq.
          if ya got a pooch, there's the doggie menu at citron.
