Bonanno Vinicola


256 Atwells Ave, Providence
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Federal Hill is where you’ll find most of Providence’s red sauce Italian spots, but if you’re looking for something a little lighter, head to Bonnano Vinicola. Expect spritzes, Sicilian wines (some from women-owned producers), regional specialties like octopus salami, mozzarella di bufalo, and smoky cured bonito tuna. You’ll probably be served by Max or Luigi, who will encourage you to try their experimental limoncellos and push dainty cups of espresso onto your table. Oh, and order dessert: it’s sourced from Scialo’s, the 106-year-old Italian bakery across the street. They make a Sicilian cannoli that might make you weep tears of joy with each slightly sweet, orange-tinted ricotta-filled bite.
