I'll be honest, I always get the same thing. It was simply so good that I can never bring myself to order anything else. It's a baby meatloaf stuffed with cheddar and mushrooms and I would push a blind retarded man in a wheelchair down a hill into oncoming traffic to get it. It's absolutely amazing and i'm not being overly dramatic. I don't even like meatloaf that much and this is the only place I ever order it. This will change your life and you have to try it.

Funky menu with "twists" on dishes that you wouldn't expect. The menu has great variety of dishes to choose from. It's better than the Warwick Twist restaurant.

I had one of those day's at work and decided to stop at Twists to unwind. I had a turkey club that was awsome nice and fresh. The bartender Stephanie listened to all my woes of the day like she was my best friend. I will definately be back and would recommend this restaurant to others. I usually don't go out alone but felt very comfortable there.

Pros: BEST BARTENDER

I always get the Twisted Calamari and the Irish Pub Burger is one of my favorite burgers in Providence. There's sometimes a wait to get in on weekends and nights, but pretty empty during the day.

We ate here on a Friday night, and the food was less than mediocre and the service was worse. We sat at the bar, which had a nice ambience. However, it was not even close to crowded and we had to keep flagging down the bartenders for everything. We got the twisted popcorn as an appetizer -- my friend had it before and said it definitely isn't the same. Instead of having flavors of lime, it tasted like they just dumped oil on it. We also got the Margherita pizza -- which barely passed for pizza. It was flatbread with flavorless tomatoes on it and barely melted slabs of mozzarella. In an Italian town, this was pretty appalling. I had been to Twist a few times several years ago, and it seems that the food has really gone downhill. Maybe that's why the restaurant was half empty on a Fri. night. I am really sorry to give this restaurant a bad review because it's the first time I've had a bad meal at ANY Pinelli-Marra restaurant. I'm going to try Twist in Kingston, RI and see if it's any better.

I had passed the street many times, but never noticed this restaurant. Then a friend invited me to dinner and cocktails.

It was quite enjoyable. The drinks were tasty. The appetizers were a good sharing size. The pasta was delicious.

It was a little crowded and I felt a little rushed, but it was a Friday night.

I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Twist is my favorite low-key upscale restaurant/coctail lounge. The food definitely will awaken your tastebuds to some unexpected but delicous flavor combinations, and the drink menu is equally eye-opening. You can go there for anything from a quick round of appetizers to a full dinner to an after dinner drink. And the best part is that the staff is always friendly and ready to make a yummy suggestion.

Fabulous meal! The special, Asian style shortrib with wasabi mashed potato was unreal. The meat fell apart at the touch of a fork, the sauce was tangy and mellow at the same time. The potato was crispy on the outside, smooth and velvet-y with the perfect hint of wasabi inside. The Hot and Sour noodle bowl was a fantastic combination of crunchy vegetables, shrimp and littlenecks. So delicious, so much food, the noodle bowls was just as good for lunch the next day. I was so full, I couldn't even try my companion's Fried Rice, which he said was teh best he's ever had. Chef Maria Beland is clearly an innovator, and a great boss, all the staff was cheerful and happy!

I've lived in Wayland Square for 7 years. Before Twist, the Providence Bookstore Cafe was in its location. It had charm, style, atmosphere and the food was good. When it closed many people were very sad, but hopeful that Twist would help ease our mourning. Sadly, this did not happen. There are a lot more things I don't like about Twist than I do like. I've given it MANY chances and have finally given up. The atmosphere is cold, uninviting and downright uncomfortable. The interior looks as though it was designed by an amateur. The closest analogy I can come up with is a somewhat dressed-up cafeteria or airport restaurant. Then there's the food. While not all appetizers and entrees are bad, most are. Many dishes are on the sweet and heavy side which I don't like. There are also many dishes that are a little bit too inventive. They sound like they might be good, but don't deliver. If you do end up dining at Twist on Angell, stick to basics. The Irish Pub Burger is actually good, as are the Buffalo Chicken Tenders. The calamari is decent and the traditional italian dishes are too. It is always crowded on weekends. So, I guess a lot of people must like it. Go figure. I think that this place draws customers from outside of the region. If you had been to the Providence Bookstore Cafe and are expecting Twist to be similar, you will be disappointed. It's another animal. The service has always been good.
