Pizzico Ristorante has been raising the bar on neighborhood dining in Rhode Island for 25 years. Owners Jim Harris and Dan Teodoro, both lifelong Rhode Islanders, are committed to delivering an authentic dining experience where most dishes are made to order. It all started with the original Providence location on Hope Street, a bustling community of independent businesses in the heart of the East Side. A second location in Barrington’s town center, which offers a stunning oyster raw bar, was added a few years ago. Both locations offer a modern, cosmopolitan atmosphere coupled with homemade, award-winning cuisine.

Ingredients delivered daily are the inspiration for the farm-to-table weekly specials, which are notably featured on the oversized chalkboards on the restaurants’ walls. Patrons get a true taste of the season here, as the expansive menu is modified twice a year to incorporate the freshest ingredients. From sophisticated pasta and risotto dishes to hearty seafood and duck entrees, Pizzico Ristorante offers an innovative variety of Italian fusion fare. Handcrafted cocktails and a deep wine cellar round out the impressive menu options.

Decadent Catering, its boutique catering arm, creates customized menus for special events, such as corporate lunches, holiday parties and weddings. A preferred caterer at Roger Williams Park Casino and the Botanical Center, Decadent strives to go above and beyond client expectations with its extraordinary food, presentation and event coordination.
