Help! Family get together in ri

I am looking to find a restaurant in RI that would be a good place for my family and my fiance's family to meet and get to know each other. we are looking for a somewhat casual place that isn't too loud but will be a good place to chat and laugh. Any suggestion

  1. You might get more replies if you narrowed it down just a bit.....north or south of Prov? IN Providence? Price range? Any types of cuisine?

      What Jane said. Plus, what's the size of the group? What night of the week (some nice places aren't open 7 days)? Is it safe to assume atmosphere is more important than quality of food?

    2. If you are looking to make an impression to the new in-laws then Newport is the place . There are a ton of places there

      1. looking for a Sunday, 6 people, not very expesive but still nice, Thanks!

          Pane E Vino is doing 2 for 1 entrees on Sunday nights in August. It is a great deal for a great restaurant.

            That's an awesome idea. They have an area in back that while, not really a private room, is set apart. I'd call and ask to reserve that section.

              My dad met my soon to be inlaws at Pane E Vino. We had our rehearsal dinner in that back area. Pane E Vino will probably always be a special place for me. They consistently do a nice job. The Sunday 2 for 1 is a great deal.
