2 Adults 2 Kids One Night in Prrovidence
We are spending one night downtown on the way to the Cape. kids are 8 and 12 looking for something reasonable preferably in a neighborhood where we can take a walk and grab some ice cream. I heard providence has some great Italian so I think that would be a good choice. TIA
If you're bringing kids, I'd stick to the informal places like Angelo's. It's located right on Atwells, which is a good area for post-dinner walking. Bonus: there's a gelateria almost across the street.
You could head to DePasquale Square (on Atwells Ave). There are several outdoor ares that would be kid appropriate. You can also go into Venda Ravioli and pick up some snacks and go to Pastiche for dessert.
Depending on where you are staying, you could make the trek over to Thayer Street (East Side, Brown University) there are numerous options over in that area or up to Angelo's on Federal Hill (as mentioned) would be a viable
