Diner Reviews
  • "We had an event at the PPac theater and heard about the Providence Coal Fired Pizza restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was good. They did not hurry us and gave us advice on what was very good. We would definitely go back."

  • "The wings are our favorite app! The specialty pizza tonight was asparagus, goat cheese and fingerling potato...amazing! "

  • "We're fans of New Haven Style Pizza, which is typically coal fired, so this place fits the bill. They make a good crust and some of their specialty pizzas are very good. Ingredients are top drawer. Good sauce, but not it's not on every pizza, so make sure you know what you're getting if that's a must-have. Also have to put in a word for the coal-fired wings. A real treat! Our experience with staff was very good two nights in a row. Don't forget to make a reservation on any Hockey or event night. you won't get in otherwise."

  • "Enjoyable meal. The Conrad - our pizza - was excellent. Loved the crust. Just the right size for two. Goat cheese appetizer with roasted vegetables was also delicious, and different from the ordinary appetizer. Beer and wine list was extensive - good choices and good recommendations from the waiter. A busy Sunday night made the restaurant seemed understaffed. The waiter was helpful and reasonably attentive, but there were times we were trying to find him. Clearly a place to go back to - especially when we attend Trinity Rep, which is a block away."

  • "Had a great meal here with three friends. Perfect for a guys' night out. We shared the pizzas, all were very good. Satisfied this NYer (and self-proclaimed pizza snob). Definitely high on noise levels and energy. Not for a quiet romantic evening. Only complaint was that our server forgot to bring our drinks. Slight misstep but easily corrected. Host staff more than made up for it. Our hostess made some special accommodations for us (we were 20 mins late for rez) and kept our night on track. Highly recommended!"

  • "Great pre-theater or Dunkin' Donuts center spot. Pizza is very good, menu is limited to just what they do well. My kids would have liked pasta on the menu, but they lived. Very busy & popular."

  • "This was my first time visiting this restaurant after the advice of a local patron that encouraged me to check it out. Great place to meet up with friends or go on a date. Although the acoustics of the place were more on the louder than quieter side, the ambience was pretty nice. Plenty of great beer available and awesome pizza! They use all fresh ingredients - no canned mushrooms or fake sausage slices here - this is the real deal. Excellent service! I would return again in the near future!!"

  • "Love the food and service. I have been 5 times now with different friends and the food is consistently very good. Wings are my favorite (onions on the side) hummus is great too could use a bit more of the lemons and salsa sides, but really great and the pizza is different, being cooked in a coal fire vs brick oven."

  • "Title says it all -- always our go-to place for pizza. Thin crust, good quality ingredients and the right oven makes all the difference. We live in one of the best restaurant cities and are foodies...but we end up here more often than not!"

  • "That describes the pizza and our experience at this great pizza restaurant. The pizza, the primo calling card, was absolutely top of the line (And , at our age, we have partaken of many a pizza!!). The starters were superb--and to really make this a totally enjoyable evening after the theatre was our waiter. Josh just made the whole experience meld together into one unforgettable evening. No doubt we will return when we are again in Providence AND we have the added bonus of waiting for the opening of the next Providence Coal Fired Pizza in our hometown of North Kingstown. BUT, we will always look forward to coming to your establishment in providence and having Josh as our waiter again."

  • "We went on a recommendation of a friend, but still, we were thinking -- pizza and wings? Meh. But this was an excellent experience. The wings are unique -- not the same-old BBQ wings. With a combination of rosemary, onions and salt, they were delicious and they set the place apart. We were trying to decide how many to order, and the waiter said "Trust me, if you eat one, you will eat five--they are that good." And he was right. Loved the pizza! Lots of competition for pizza around, but it was a very respectable crust, small, thick-cut pepperoni. Just great. VVGood place!"

  • "After having spent 2 hours on Urbanspoon and Yelp to find a nice semi-casual restaurant for my wife's 36th birthday and two of our closest friends I settled on Providence Coal Fired Pizza. I don't typically dine in Providence, so the complementary valet parking was a great start to the evening. The food was outstanding. The waiter brought us some homemade sausage in a cabbage wrap which was different but delicious. We ordered the ricotta cheese dip with the flat bread for an appetizer that was so delicious, we ordered a second one when our friends arrived. My wife and I ordered a sausage pizza, and our friends ordered some of their wings to share. Both dishes were absolutely delicious."

  • "Providence Coal fired pizza did not honor our open table reservation! When we arrived for our 7:15 pm reservation they told us they would not seat us until 8:30 pm! They said open table had no business making our reservations! Even though we saw a few empty tables and only one group waiting to be seated. So we left!"

  • "I was intrigued by the use of a coal fired oven. Could it be as good as the New Have places (Frank Pepe's)? Well it was pretty darn good. Just the right amount of char, and a very light dough. A simple red sauce and fresh mozarella and basil on my Pizza Margherita (I am a pizza purist). I will return."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Good specials each night. Particularly like Mondays with half-price margherita pizzas and $3 margaritas. Ended up straying from my usual and getting a baby bella. Loved the cheese but I'm not a big fan of the mushrooms. Otherwise great pizzas. Definitely get the wings."

  • "Beer selection was very good. Wings were outstanding. One of the pizzas crust was so thin, you could not pick any up along with a little too much sauce. The other was excellent. Both lizzas tasted outstanding."

  • "The appetizers are good, but the portions are small. The pizza crust is a bit too hard for my liking. It's difficult to bite or cut into."

  • "We had a great dinner before going to PPAC and we had 3 generations in our group of 6. Prov Coal Fired Pizza fit the bill perfectly - the pizza was excellent and the varied choices for toppings/styles made it different than just going out for pizza. The salads were especially good - fresh, great dressing, and high quality. The beer and wine list was also nice... Our waiter was patient with our 2 older members of the group who were worried about getting to the play on time and was very responsive to our needs. Would definitely go again!"

  • "Very conveni.ent to PPAC and pizza and appetizer was tasty. Waiter courteous, but forgot drink order, placed wrong pizza order and had to have pizza redone and didn't seem to listen to one particular person.That person was on a medical restrictive diet and there was NOTHING for her to eat. Asked for vegetable garden salad and was mostly lettuce. Included with lettuce a few strips of red onion, 1 slice of cuke cut in fourths and 2 cherry (little) tomatoes cut in half. When asked for raw vegies,waiter came back with a carmelized vegies dish w/ bread Patron still could not eat that. Was charged for everything though with no break in all the mistakes. Probably good for just pizza or appetizer, but if want anything else not good."

  • "We had theater tickets close by and let our server know that when she first came to our table. We ordered a great bottle of wine and lingered over it then placed our order. Everything arrived at an appropriate pace even though the place was packed. Food was also great. We paid our check with plenty of time to walk to the theater before the show...never rushed, never ignored. Thanks for a wonderful experience!"

  • "The food was wonderful, by all accounts. The server, Stephanie, was fun, amiable and very helpful. My only complaint is that I have Celiac Disease and they do not have any gluten-free pizza. Stephanie knew what Celiac Disease was and was very helpful when I ordered. The wings were spectacular and she made sure that they were made gluten-free. Although I realize that they can't make gluten-free pizza in an oven that has had flour in it, I just have to wonder if they could offer a gluten-free option; even if it wasn't cooked in the coal-fired oven. That being said, I would still go back. I would recommend that you make a reservation if you are going on a Friday or Saturday night."

  • "Everything about the evening was great! The wings - as always - were out of this world. Cocktails were top-notch and beyond the ordinary. All of our pizzas were served piping hot and exactly as ordered. Plenty of time to enjoy our meals and still make our show at PPAC. Never felt rushed!"

  • "Open table messed up. After a confirmation being made, when we arrived at the restaurant they did not have my reservation. However, the restaurant found us two seats at the pizza bar and offered us desserts. Hostess was great. Waiter terrific and good excellent. We love the place especially before theater."

  • "This is our go-to place for pizza -- and we've been pizza fans in many places, including Italy. Yet we always come back to this one as our favorite. Crisp crust, fresh tomato sauce, fantastic pepperoni (if you like that) in a coal-fired oven that gives it just the right crusty, charred taste. Good service, friendly, engaging -- remembered us after a couple of visits. I bring my own soda (because I'm not a Coke fan) and they've never given me grief about that, which I appreciate. It is often crowded (other people know a good place too!).Parking downtown is a pain unless you're willing to pay for it (and we are too cheap for that)....but they have valet parking at busy times."

  • "Maybe not the most romantic place for a Valentine's Day dinner but my wife and I loved it. Starting with efficient valet service to prompt seating to an outstanding meal it was a great time. As other reviewers have said, the wings are out of this world. We ordered a large order anticipating bringing some home. We ate them all and ordered a small order to go. The pizza, rabes and sausage, was excellent with perfectly cooked crust. Our sever was very good--friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We plan on returning Friday night after the PC hockey game."
