Undoubtedly the most elegant place in Providence, Rhode Island, for food and drink, Costantino's Ristorante & Caffe opened its doors on the evening of June 19, 2002. This Italian wine bar and restaurant is located on DePasquale Plaza, across the square from Venda Ravioli at 265 Atwells Avenue, in the heart of historic Federal Hill - the Little Italy section of the capital city.

The first floor -- decorated in soft shades of celadon green, gold and apricot -- is a lounge for pre-dinner cocktails and appetizers, as well as a gathering spot for after-dinner drinks, coffee and desserts. With a view of the flower-filled plaza, the lounge at Costantino's is so inviting with love seats, wingback chairs and a stunning pink marble bar, imported from Italy. Crystal chandeliers, gilded mirrors and romantic works of art complete the picture. On the sweeping stairway to the second floor, a colorful mural of the Italian countryside graces the wall.

The upper level offers a full-service restaurant serving traditional Italian cuisine, artfully executed by Chef Alberto. His menu offers hot and cold appetizers, salads, various pastas, steak, veal, chicken and seafood dishes. The extensive wine list offers vintages from Italy and other wine-producing parts of the world, including more than 20 wines by the glass.

Costantino's Ristorante & Caffe is open Sunday through Thursday, from 5 to 10 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday, from 5 to 11 p.m. The popular restaurant sometimes closes on Sunday for private parties, so it is recommended to call 401-528-1100 to check on availability. Free valet parking is also available.

All this is the latest chapter being written by the Costantino family, owners of Venda Ravioli, which has been making pasta for more than 70 years in the Old World tradition. Venda Ravioli is dedicated to teaching the public the importance of quality ingredients in food preparation. A complete line of Italian food and specialty products is available at Venda, and now that devotion to traditional Italian culture can also be sampled across the plaza at Costantino's Ristorante & Caffe.
