Small but effective menu
I've been to Providence Coal Fired Pizza four times now and I have to say, every time is just as good as the last. Their dry rub chicken wings are perfect, and each pizza I've had has excellent toppings. Their tomato soup is wonderful as well.

Great pizza. Something different than every other pizza place. Wings are good also!

Great for dinner before show
We has seen Coal Fire when leaving a PPAC preformace and decided to try at next show because of it convienance. This is not your ordinary pizza place. The atmosphere is fresh and exciting just like the food. The service was great and quick. Just food options to satisfy everyone at the table. We loved the warm goat cheese surrounded by roasted veggie appetizer and the arrugala and prociutto salad was large enough to split. The pizzas were a thin crust that was cooked to prerfection. The add to it there was free valet parking.
Will definately be going back, even when there is no show.

It took over an hour for our pizza to arrive which seems to be a bit long to me. Otherwise, excellent food!

Wonderful for a night at PPAC!
We had pizza and wings - both delicious! We were able to valet park and go see the show.

Great Pizza and Ribs
Great food! We sat at the bar and watched the pizza being made.
Only disappointment is they don't have much on the dessert choices.....

Fun night, great pizza
Food was delicious, pizza crust was perfect Loved the décor and set-up, but a bit loud due to a screaming baby, otherwise, great night.

We always look forward to going here for pizza and the wings! Tonight we had the Bianca as well as an order of wings. The red sangria was perfect! Our waitress Kelly was knowledgable about the food and beverages. She was attentive to us but not intrusive...which earned her a tip that was over 20%. Always a good time!

Happy with our experience
I brought my family to Coal Fired Pizza after my daughter's dance recital. We had two kids, two seniors, and two adults in tow. All of us were pleased with our meals (we split three different pizzas). We were especially pleased with our server, Tom, who was funny, helpful, and attentive without being over-bearing. All in all, we were all very happy with our experience.

Dinner for 10
We were dining pre-Trinity Rep on a Sunday evening. The food and wine were excellent and the staff very accomodating. There were 10 of us asking for 4 separate checks which is a challenge for wait staff. They were accomodating and pleasant about our requests, kept the drink orders up to speed and managed to get 7 of their generous sized pizzas on our tables. My only "complaint" ---and it is not realy a complaint---is that the tables were all square so we were seated in a long line and visiting was difficult. But that is the situation many places, We would have liked to be outside and it would have fit us but two of the tables were reserved. Inside was very nice, however.

Love the pizza and the wings were GREAT. Can't wait to go back . Only thing that was better then the food was the service .
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to coal-fired pizza several times. My opinion is that it prepares the best pizza in Providence. However, this time the pizza was well overdone.
The server was not responsive.

Had great mushroom pizza and very fresh salad with tasty dressing -- would gladly try this again.

Celebrated my 36th birthday here over the weekend and it was great. Service was friendly, good excellent. My friends, some of them serious foodies, and I like it a lot. Would go again.

Quack & Clam
We couldn't decide what to get, so our waiter said, go half & half. The duck pizza is crazy good, & the clam pizza is all the best parts of a clam bake. Can't wait to go back.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
i make it my mission to eat pizza and be critical about it; simple visual inspection suffices to tell that this is a superior pizza. blackened, chewy crust, crispy bottom, judicious application of toppings. we went here two nights in a row.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the pizza and the apps and drinks. Would return!

We love coal fired pizza.
We love coal fired pizza. The wings and hummus are so delicious. Tried the hamburg pizza...it was so very yummy and as always we got the Conrad, which also was delicious.
Our waiter was a bit non interested and slow in getting stuff to us, but the young man who brought the pizza was very helpful and pleasant.
We'll be back again
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really enjoyed the pizza. We had the rocket and a pepperoni pizza. It reminded us of Lombardi's in NYC which is one of our all time favorites. We were a bi shocked that our total bill ended up being more $ than we expected but we decided it was worth it. Going back for more.

Great food at PVD Coal Fired Pizza
We headed to Providence Coal Fired Pizza before going to Waterfires. Our party consisted of two adults and three children. I had made a 7pm reservation, but they were kindly able to seat us earlier. As the previous reviews suggested, we ordered the chicken wings app and the baked goat cheese app. Both were delicious! When the two pizzas for the table arrived, they were tasty as well, and we were able to finish off the last of the goat cheese with our pizza crusts. Heavenly! Tom, our waiter, was attentive but not overbearing. It was a bit noisy, but we'll definitely be back!

This was my first time at Providence coal fire pizza and it did not disappoint. We started with the coal fired chicken wings and crispy bread with goat cheese and marinara sauce, both were great. The wings were simple, but cooked to perfection with a great coal char and topped with grilled onions. The bread was great, especially when dipped in the chunky marinara and goat cheese. For dinner, we opted for the The Conrad, which had roasted peppers and onions and sausage made in house. The pizza was phenomenal, the crust was perfect, cheese and toppings made it even better. I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone, it's also located in a nice neighborhood and a close walk to the Providence Water fires if you're there on a Saturday.

I made reservations for a table before going to the theater, to make sure we would have enough time. This was my first time at Providence Coal Fired Pizza, but I'd heard good things. The food was excellent, as was the service. The crowd was really mixed, with a lot of people at the bar, but families and mixed groups at the tables. The prices are very reasonable for the location.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
great food...questionable service.
The food was fantastic, though the time it took to receive it was lengthy (we sat at 8:15, and did not receive our entrees until well after 9:15pm).
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is the Attraction
A young vibe here. Lots of energy. Pizza is different and very good. A friend recommended the wings, which were also different from any others I have had and very good. Service is good for a pizza place - informal but reasonably attentive.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
best pizza in town
As always the food and atmosphere was great, the service was impeccable and as the title says...THE BEST PIZZA IN TOWN!!!

A lively spot with good service and great pizza. Took the family (kids & grandkids) and everyone had a great time. The roasted goat cheese was wonderful, the pizza even better.

Very good pizza. Members of my party enjoyed the wings. Fun atmosphere. Valet parking on the weekend is a great bonus.

A pizza restaurant for carb watchers- great salads- I returned twice for the lentil salad- had the vegan version. Pizza great for those growing up in Italian homes - felt real.
Very good wine selections
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
In for Parents Weekend and found this online and decided to try it out based on the reviews. It was crowded but food was very good as was service. Definitely will go back.

Great Pre-Game Dinner!
We made a reservation at Providence Coal Fired Pizza for dinner before a P Bruins game. I noted in my online reservation form that we needed to be in and out within an hour so that we wouldn't be late for the game. We received a friendly greeting when we checked in, and the hostess informed our server of the time requirements. Our server came right to our table and allowed us to order right away to keep to our schedule. We ordered the house wings. They were delicious!!! Just the right amount of seasoning, and covered in caramelized onions. The pizza was delicious! Our only comment is that the crust was not as crisp as we would like; but we still ate every bite of it! And, it is loud in there, but not intrusive. We cannot wait to go back!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant serves unique and excellent pizza. The wings are also outstanding. Gets very crowded so make a reservation, especially on a Saturday night during theater season

A Pleasant Change
We've be here several times and it is a nice change from the run of the mill pizza parlors. The architecture of the place is great, the food is unique, and it is a great place to people watch.

pre-PPAC pizza perfection
Needed a place to meet friends for a casual meal before a PPAC show. Location was key, so we decided on Providence Coal-Fired Pizza. Friendly staff, great service. Good wine list, and very tasty, creative pizzas. Reasonable prices. Fun, family-friendly environment with the right amount of noise to make you feel like everyone's havin a good time. Excellent location for an under-five-minute walk to PPAC. Free valet parking at restaurant door, good for the duration of the show. Would definitely return, show or not.
10/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
My friend and I were taking in a show in Providence and I heard about Coal Fired Pizza from someone who had been and enjoyed it. My friend and I loved the food! The wings were to die for and the pizza was fab! I have already told friends and family about how much we loved it and would definitely would go back. The hostess was nice enough to call a cab for us and when the cab was running late she called again and made sure we were taken care of even though it was super busy inside. 10/10!!
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and very accommodating!
I had a reservation for 5 people, but plans changed and we now had 11. They were at full capacity, but worked us in and called me to fit our large party at the last minute. Great food, atmosphere, service and complimentary valet parking! True gem in Providence!

First time. Pizza and wings
First time. Pizza and wings were excellent. Service was terrific. Had a reservation for 10 people that was easily accommodated in a high top table. If you want a regular table make the request with your reservation.

Love the pizza and beer selection
Great pizza and beer selection, but the acoustics are bad- it's all hard surfaces and even at lunch when the restaurant was only half full, it was still hard to hear my husband over the echos from other people conversing. I've been when it's packed on a Friday night and it's an ok place for a group as long as you don't mind being restricted to conversing with the person directly next to you in exchanged shouts!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pizza and service was very goog. Pizza was a bit over cooked on the crust edges, but still very good.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pizza was great! Ricotta app was unbelievable. Service was top notch with a cool atmosphere.

This is an excellent place to go before or after a show at PPAC. The pizza is amazing! All fresh ingredients with a delicious crust. The salads are good too.

Providence HOT spot
This place was hopping on a Wednesday. Lots happening downtown that night. Glad we made a reservation.

Dinner and show
This is a great place to go before a show. It also appears to be stopping ground after work so it is busy. Make sure to make a reservation. The server was very attentive and Helpful with suggestions. Make sure to tell them you are going to and they will plan accordingly.
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
The chicken wings are the best I have ever tasted. They are smothered in onions and a dry rub. The arugula salad was perfect and the "Conrad" pizza as good as it gets!
12/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very impressed. The chicken wings, which were highly recommended, were excellent. The pizza was great as well, slightly blackened but still chewy! Nice beer selection for a pizza restaurant. The atmosphere was great. We were trying to figure out what was in the building before.
12/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was my first experience at this restaurant. I enjoyed the atmosphere and close proximity to the Trinity Rep theater. The service was very good and I thought the food was excellent.

Went with our three young children before a show at PPAC with a 5:15 reservation. The restaurant was busy but we were seated upon arrival and service was friendly but slow. Chicken wings (not spicy) and pizza were very good. Would happily return.
