Despite its English-sounding name, the Federal Hill district in the heart of Providence is one of the nation's most vibrant Italian-American communities. You'll find restaurants and bistros offering authentic Italian cuisine, delis selling a wide variety of food items imported directly from Italy, specialty shops featuring Italian-themed kitchen utensils and gift items, picturesque parks and an Italianate fountain and square that serve as the neighborhood gathering place. There's no doubt it is one of America's most authentic and colorful "Little Italy" neighborhoods.
