Rhode Island Billiards Bar and Bistro

2026 Smith St, 

North Providence, RI 02911

Open Tues - Sat  4 PM - 1 AM




Italian American Gustaf Costanzo immigrated to Rhode Island and started a legacy. In 1909 Costanzo purchased a pool and a liquor license from the city of providence. Years later his son, Anthony Sr. would persevere through prohibition and the great depression with Italian genius. The use of an underground speakeasy became imminent.  Many years later Rhode Island Billiard, Bar & Bistro was founded by Phyllis and Tony Costanzo in 1982 when pool was making it’s resurgence into American Culture.  Anthony Costanzo Jr. moved the family business from Providence, fighting recession, gas crunches, and the RI Banking Crisis.


As fourth Generation Proprietor Anthony Costanzo 3rd always strives to improve the facility from new bars to our improved kitchen. As well as being the only real billiard and pool hall left in Rhode Island with a true 10 foot billiard table.   We offer a much larger variety of beer and spirits than other restaurants and pubs, serving up a daily menu too! After over 100 years in business, pool in RI is as common a term as golf or baseball. Rhode Island Billiard, Bar & Bistro gives you a place to meet friends, new people, and spend time with old friends in a relaxed safe atmosphere.


Regardless of where we came from, for many in America our immigrant origins remain a vital part of who we are. Likewise, our successes are a legacy of immigrant hopes and values handed down from the preceding generation. In celebration of the family values and work ethic that seems common to the immigrant experience, I`m sharing the warm memories of my own roots in hopes they kindle similar recollections of your own…because these reflections of an earlier time serve to remind us to reach for excellence in all we do!

Don’t forget to join a pool league or enter a mini-pool tournament for individual fun or competition!
