The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Take the Family to Providence


2. Where to Eat

The Federal Hill neighborhood showcases the best of the city's robust Italian cuisine. Traditional pasta for everyone is at the Blue Grotto, parents dine solo at upscale Camille's, and the Venda Ravioli market stocks deli grub to eat in or take out.

Bring picky eaters to Fire + Ice, where kids select their own pastas, vegetables, meats, and sauces for grilling.

Pizzeria Regina, also in Providence Place, is an outpost of one of Boston's most beloved brick-oven joints.

After dinner, join the throngs at Pastiche for a fresh lime tart or one of their many other hearty desserts that appeal to kids.
