Red Sauce Rave
Your visit to the Federal Hill food empire Costantino's Venda Ravioli
is likely to go one of two equally delicious ways. Option A: Pick up Italian picnic essentials like buffalo mozzarella, spicy sopressa, and antipasto salad at the market arm of the biz. Option B: Dine alfresco at the adjacent restaurant, where you can try Venda's famous handmade pasta while relaxing at one of the umbrella-covered tables that spill out onto piazza-like De Pasquale Square. Costantino's Venda Ravioli, 265 Atwells Avenue, Providence, 401-421-9105, vendaravioli.com.
