After a trip to Atwells Avenue in Providence where we had lunch at Joe Marzilli's
"Old Canteen" Italian Restaurant, I had to come home and try to duplicate their
delicious Minestrone Soup. The walls are pink, the chairs are pink and the tablecloths
too! This fabulous restaurant established in 1956 requires RESERVATIONS!
