Diner Reviews
  • "App, soup, salad and pizza was great! Great selection of beer."

  • "Absolutely the best wings and pizza any of us had ever had.....and this from a generally non-wings type of diners. It has to be the 900 degree oven because the end product is just so superior to any other iteration any of us have ever had. Located a block and a half from the Providence Performing Arts Center, it is a great pre-show option. They need to stay open later though. Consensus was to head straight back when the show was over around 11:00 PM, but when we got there, they were closed."

  • "My husband and I dine frequently here at Coal Fired Pizza. The staff is welcoming and provides great service, the beverages are served up in a timely manner and we never feel rushed or forgotten. We LOVE the meatballs! I am a creature of habit and always order the Marguerite pizza....subtle flavors that meld beautifully with each other every time...never a miss."

  • "Pizza and appetizers are very good here. Although I like the place, it can be a bit loud in here. Otherwise a very good choice for pizza in Providence."

  • "We,love the wings and pizza....always as good as anticipated. I like the valet parking, cut down on the hassle and we are always greeted by friendly people. The wait staff is normally excellent, sometimes a little slow but I am sure that depends on how busy they are. Overall we recommend it to friends and family."

  • "My fiance and I went on a date night before waterfire and it was excellent! The restaurant was not too busy and the service was very nice and quick. The food was absolutely delicious as well. I would definitely return!"

  • "This was our first vist here. We ordered 3 different kinds of pizza and all were delicious. The crust was thin and cooked to perfection. The toppings were fresh. The meatball one was my favorite. The service was very good. The only complaint is the restaurant's noise level which made it almost impossible to hear each other without shouting. The decibel level was over the top and the restaurant was not at full capacity."

  • "My Fiancee and I enjoy good pizza and this place delivers it at its best. He believes it was the best pizza of his life and wants to go back (out of state) again this week. We had the ricotta cheese bread app and although it was much different than we thought, it far exceeded our expectations and we couldn't get enough of it. We had the margarita pizza and it was Delicious! We are looking forward to going back and trying the wings the people beside us got (they smelt amazing). Looking forward to trying another kind of pizza. Highly Recommend!"

  • "met some friends the other night and just HAD to go with the specialty pizza (plus another favorite) of the night...so delicious! And the hummus is fresh and out of this world....our waiter was terrific too...really friendly and offered great suggestions and explanations of the menu items...he even brought us more flatbread to go along with the hummus since we had more people than the flatbread would take care of...all in all a great dinner with wonderful friends!"

  • "Really like this place. Went around 430 on a Monday and the place was almost empty... somewhat expected for that time of day. Was nice and relaxing... compared to my first visit here when the place was completely mobbed and you couldn't carry on a conversation with your tablemates. Had the ribs, wings and a pizza. All really excellent. OK wine by the glass rounded out the early dinner. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

  • "I went here on Friday night with my girlfriend as we have heard good things about it. Made a reservation which the honored with no problem and also had free valet parking as there was no street parking available. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was nice. We ordered the Meatballs for an app and we got 3 golf ball sized meatballs for $8 dollars which were OK but in my opinion not worth $8. For our meal we ordered The Steak Bomb pizza which was tasty but not nearly enough food for 2 people. My advice; it's a good place if you're in a group a people and want to order a couple of pizzas to split and have some drinks after work but don't go there hungry."

  • "Went there with a Groupon and family of 4, including two teenagers. Appetizers of meatballs,hummus plate,and tomato soup were all VERY GOOD.I didn't have the meatballs but my kids enjoyed them and liked the spicy sauce. I think there were only 3 in the order(maybe 4). We then all split a Margerhita Pizza and a Entrée Salad(Lentil and Hummus). The pizza was very good but not great. Thin,good crust but a bit pricey($15) for the size. Salad was also good. Overall the food was very good,the service was very good,the atmosphere was fine(Sunday early afternoon). Had hoped the pizza would have been a bit better and thought it was just a tad overpriced."

  • "The service was good, and the food was excellent. Very distinct flavor to the pizza and the wings (which were fabulous)! I think this is a great place to check out, and reasonably priced too."

  • "Coal Fired Pizza manages to be fresh, unique, and delicious... pizza. Which is hard, in New England, with dozens of pizza places per city. Rivals Al Forno for the best in the area, and would compete favorably with Boston institutions like Regina's and Santarpio's. "
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "The pizzas were just ok. The crusts were not crisp and the mashup of toppings on the house selections did not produce a delight to the taste buds. There is better in the area. The crowd noise made hearing the person across the table difficult."

  • "Providence Coal Fired Pizza was one of the first restaurants my wife and I visited, and loved, in Downcity, and we have been going there ever since. They have a wonderful beer and wine list, great service, and a very diverse (and creative) menu. If you enjoy unique pizzas with crispy crust, this is the place to go in Providence."

  • "1st time diner. went prior to a show at the PPAC, Arrived 10 minutes early for our reservation and was seated promptly. The restaurant was able to accommodate friends (who had a separate reservation) and seat us together. Honored a coupon we had even though they said it applied on theatre nights only. Now the food- Do not skip the wings!! Done in the Coal oven, with sea salt and rosemary- absolutely delicious. Pizza is thin crust, nicely done with just a hint of char. The Conrad was especially good and the margherita pizza was OK ( could use a bit more fresh mozzarella cheese for my taste). Overall the service was good and the food very good. Can't wait to return to have the wings again. "

  • "We went for dinner around 5:30 PM on a Thursday and we chose to sit outside. I noticed they were advertising $3 sangrias...so we got some. One red, one white. The white one was bland and not very tasty, so I asked the waiter to add some OJ or other juice to it. He came back with a much better mix. To start we ordered the famous chicken wings and they were DELICIOUS!!! Nice grilled wings with sweet caramelized onions....a winner anytime...We ordered a cheese pizza with their homemade sausage and it was very good. The crust was thin except on the edges, where it tends to be a bit thick. The sausage was tasty and delicious. Cheese and sauce were very flavorful too."

  • "Maybe it was bc I chose this place for a lg group recently and was second-guessing myself, but I noticed things that I hadnt noticed the first time I went there...There is virtually no music. The sound is just a *loud* din of people. I asked the bartender about it and she said the sound system was not quite installed right, and you really can't hear it, even if it is on. Bummer. Another thing I noticed is that the lights throughout the restaurant are bright--like it was 2am closing time. Not inviting. And it was hot inside. The food IS really good, but man, the ambience was NOT working for me last Sat night. Overall, I do highly recommend the food...and some of the ambience things can be addressed easily enough. :)"

  • "The place was packed with a pre-theater crowd when we arrived. When it's that busy it's EXTREMELY loud. Our 7pm reservation was honored on time. We enjoyed everything he had. Apps: Meatballs, Chicken Wings, Ribs. Pizza: Artichoke Special, Pepperoni. All the drinks from the bar were well made. There's a lot to like here. We noticed some of the pizzas coming out very charred, not what my son would appreciate... so we asked the waiter to have them keep an eye on that. Be careful to ask if that's a concern. We'll be back!"

  • "The food is fabulous. Love the meatball & ricotta pizza. Best chicken wings ever. Food is always delicious and very consistent. Took my mother there for the 1st time before a show and she loved it. Have been there several times. Service is always great. Place was packed. A little noisy but you forget about it. Highly recommend the Providence Coal Fired Pizza. Definitely will go back there."

  • "We are here before a show at PPAC this weekend. We had made a reservation, so were seated immeidately. The ambiance is cool...big, open space that's vey friendly. Plus you can watch them make the pizzas which is neat. I was SUPER bummed at the bar though....I ordered a mojito, which they put orange juice in. When I asked for no oj they said they can't do that...? Plus it was insanely expensive for drinks, even compared to other downtown places."

As the night went on the place filled up I would recommend a reservation if you are pressed for time. Can't wait to go back."

  • "We have been to Coal Fired Pizza numerous times and food has always been excellent. The food was as good as ever but very slow in coming. The hostess started the night off by stating " we will need the table back at 7" as she was sitting us at our 5:30 PM reservation. If she had just asked she would have known that we were part of the pre-show crowd and the show started at 7PM. We did not realize we were renting table like a condo. Main course, our pizza was not delivered until 6:40, we had to rush so we could vacate table for show. We will never do a pre-show meal again, and we have season tickets. "

  • "I had been to Providence Coal Fired Pizza once before and found the service and food somewhat lacking. This time around was a dramatic improvement. Our server was excellent! She was attentive and responsive but didn't hang around the table. We shared a caesar salad and margharita pizza. Both excellent. Nice vibe at Coal Fired pizza. Had a nice buzz but not too loud."

  • "Went before a show at Trinity and was FANTASTIC! Sat where they were prepping pizzas and close to server station which was fun. The chef that was adding toppings and cutting pizzas was very outgoing and friendly. For apps we had Ceaser Salad and meatballs served with wedges of pizza crust. Unbelievable flavor to the meatballs and sauce. Our pizza was a Margarita to which we added priscutto (sp) and carmelized onions. The crust was thin and had just the right crunch to it. It was great talking to the chef, watching the pizzas cook, and being in on some of the comeradiere and jokes of the staff. Can't wait for our return trip!!!!"
