Federal Hill: Providence's Little Italy Neighborhood
Federal Hill, one of the nation's most vibrant "Little Italy" neighborhoods, is located in downtown Providence. Settled by Italian immigrants in the 1870s, the rich heritage of its early settlers is alive and well to this day. Plan a visit to experience truly authentic Italian cuisine, or to shop in the many groceries, bakeries and specialty stores featuring a wide variety of products imported directly from Italy.
