|Wine & Cheese Restaurant was opened in August of 2009. Co-Owned by Nestor Xhupi and Leart Mezini, the idea for Wine & Cheese was simple…create a restaurant “Where Great Pizza Is Just The Beginning!” Mr. Xhupi brings the years of tradition from his other restaurant, The Big Cheese & Pub in Cranston, RI to Wine & Cheese. Founded in 1968, The Big Cheese has been a fixture in the Cranston area for over 40 years, and now Mr. Xhupi is excited to bring that same tradition to North Providence.
Wine & Cheese is “casual dining at its neighborhood best”. Featuring a unique menu of not just “homemade”, but “handmade” items such as pizzas, calzones, pasta, salads, etc., Wine & Cheese is a delight for the taste buds.
Wine & Cheese prides itself on using the freshest ingredients to create reasonably priced culinary delights. The Greek Salad features The Big Cheese & Pub’s famous salad dressing recipe. There are 16 different types of calzones on the Wine & Cheese menu and the pizza…just mix and match toppings or go for one of the gourmet selections. But it’s the homemade bread itself that “makes all the calzones and pizza special”.
