Although the fresh, hearty dishes at Pamfilio's Ristorante are undoubtedly Italian, the chefs enjoy infusing them with a little local flavor. For instance, they dot the signature cheese blend on their pizza with local sweet corn, and sautee Narragansett littlenecks in a garlic and onion sauce. Even chicken parmesan gets a hometown update thanks to a house-made pomodoro sauce and a road map of Providence instead of a napkin. Customers feast on these dishes in the casual dining room, which also has a deli that serves wraps and grinders made with freshly baked sub rolls or focaccia bread.
