Providence suggestions.

I'll be in Providence for training Sunday through Thursday of next week and need some help, please. I've searched the boards for recommendations and have some ideas. I'd like to have Portuguese one night and it looks like I need to have some Italian or at least a wood fired pizza. I'll be on an expense account but I can't really "go overboard". So, as much as I'd like to, I need to stay away from the really high end places.
I'd like to get a taste of what the locals do for a quick dinner out during the week. Is there any "don't miss" things I should have? Any local "institutions" that I need to experience?
What Portuguese places can you suggest?
Which Italian or pizza place?
I'll be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn Warwick and training in Cranston if that helps. I won't have a car but can take a cab.
Thanks in advance.
