"I found Rosalina to be a really nice addition to the downcity dining scene. Its location is a little off the main streets, so people are going to have to learn about it, but they will not be disappointed. The menu is a fun variety of takes on traditional Italian dishes with some Mediterranean variations and local ingredients thrown in. The portion sizes are moderate (unusual for Providence's robust Italian restaurants) but very well prepared and tasty. I especially liked the chilled calamari appetizer. Note that the preparations are a little different that the run-of-the-mill restaurants, so don't be caught off guard."

Located in the lower level of Providence G, Providence's newest luxury lifestyle building, G Pub is the city's first true "gastropub" featuring many American classics done with a modern twist in an old world upscale atmosphere.
"I must start by saying I really like the ProvG Pub. But my third trip there was a bit frustrating. They were clearly understaffed for a lunch rush. The waitresses blamed the kitchen for being overloaded. The noise level was a little higher than usual. When the food came, it was very good, just what I ordered, and served hot or cold, as applicable. But to do business in Downcity, you have to know your key audience and their eating habbits or you will become a relic quickly."
