We were here with a large group so sampled almost all the apps and they rocked! Surf and turf special with scallops was amazing as were desserts. The place did a great job handling a large table - amazing meal!

Casually elegant Cafe Nuovo, at the Gondola Landing on Providence's famed Riverwalk, has been hailed by the New York Times and singled out by the Providence Journal as "RI's contribution to world class dining." The scenic waterside setting is matched only by the "fresh, seasonal flavor of Cafe Nuovo's contemporary American cuisine and heavenly dessert creations." Through glass curtain walls or while dining al fresco on the piazza, patrons enjoy attentive service and commanding city views while the river and gondolas roll by. Complimentary valet parking evenings. **Sunday Open for Waterfire, Graduations, some Holidays or private functions
