My first time to Providence and I was quite impressed with the number of Italian restaurants there. Ate lunch at Venda's Café outside by the fountain.
I had Salsicce e Rapini [$14.00] Italian sweet sausage & broccoli rabe sautéed with olive oil, garlic & hot pepper seeds and finished with Pecorino Romano.
Also tried the Asparagi alla Griglia [$10.00] Grilled asparagus wrapped with Prosciutto di Parmaserved over mesclun greens and finished with shaved Parmigiano- Reggiano. These were the best!
