- expensivedonna1974Dined on 11/8/2014Should have stuck with their pizza. I order a cobb salad....barely any bacon or cheese on it....the greens had long stems (hate that). My husbabd order Mediterranean shrimp pasta...small shrimp and barely any sauce on the pasta.
- Disaster2badDined on 10/27/2014The waitress had little to no knowledge of the drink list. The waitress had a poor attitude. The pizza we had was the same quality as a frozen pizza from the grocery store. We actually had to send it back due to poor quality and taste. I felt that the reviews on this restaurant were very misleading.Special Features:
- GroupieDined on 10/25/2014Good food, menu with a lot of options and big portions so good value. Only disappointment was table was right next to waiting area so a bit noisy. Would definitely go again.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Perfect for a Friday night!Mjals214Dined on 10/24/2014My husband and I visited for the first time last Friday night. Our waiter James, was outstanding! Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. The food was fabulous, so delicious and you certainly get your money's worth. We chatted with the General Manager (Jill?) who was also very warm and friendly and a real promoter of the restaurant, the staff and the owners. We are so looking forward to making the drive back, we are from MA, and trying something new. Our experience was perfection.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great findBigcoveDined on 10/4/2014We were traveling through looking for a place for dinner and found The Fire through Open Table. Food was very good. The portions were huge (easily could have fed two people) with reasonable prices. The server was attentive but never hovered. He was very knowledgable of the menu and had good suggestions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Pleasantly Surprised - Great MenuGouterDined on 7/7/2014A surprisingly good restaurant in the middle of an area not known for its outstanding cuisine. Tim waited on us - a table of 8 with three young children. The service was great, Tim was patient, attentive, and accommodating. The menu had so many great plates it was hard to choose. Braised ribs were delicious, as was lobster ravioli, bruschetta, and many others. Portions are huge. The cookie pizza dessert was decadent.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- cozy dinnig for twodinning2Dined on 4/27/2014This one of my wife and I favorite spots we have never had a bad meal here. The oil and garlic and hot bread yum. We usually go early for their early bird specials or one of their fire grilled pizzas .Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointing mealRistoogeDined on 4/20/2014The meal for Easter Sunday included a favorite, leg of lamb. The lamb was very disappointing. Not only was it overcooked and dry, there were only 2 - 1" x 2 1/2" slices. The meal was $18 and only came with potatoes and broccoli. The service was very good, but it was still a disappointing meal.Special Features:
- Pour water on the "Fire"Muncho1VIPDined on 4/5/2014Living in the Prov, RI area, we are are lucky to have fine restaurants, Italian, and otherwise, located within 20 minutes or so from where we live. Getting a good piece of veal with pasta, should be a pretty standard thing. The sauce actually was pretty good. I understand when the veal is not quite dry, the coating doesn't stick when you fry it. It decomposed and began to mix with the not too bad sauce. That's right, gritty, and pasty. In the other fifteen or so restaurants I have had veal in,in the area, I never quite experienced this texture in my mouth. No ! Grits don't count. Needed a sharper knife for the veal itself. All kidding aside. Wine ok, clams casino ok, wife's pasta/ meat sauce ok, and waitress good. But never again !!
- Great food.BillkDined on 4/5/2014I had the grilled swordfish tips with rice. The food was cooked right and tasted great. A bit pricey but all in all it was really good.Special Features:
- Pizza & WineRUHungryDined on 3/29/2014We have dined at The Fire for many years (it was formerly know as Wild Fire) and the food has always been very good. Our favorite is the brick oven pizza's, they are delicious, always cooked to perfection, paired with a salad and glass of wine makes a great night at the fire.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Close to home and good!Justme718Dined on 3/13/2014Have been to the Fire for quick family celebrations...our family including my 82 year old father have always enjoyed our dinner. Service is very attentive, food consistently good. It's not always convenient to head to the hill for dinner. This is a good restaurant that provides a variety of food choices,with a nice casual atmosphere .Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent!LISALDined on 3/8/2014This was a last minute find on Open Table and wow, we were really impressed! A great restaurant, great food and great atmosphere - servers were excellent and bar atmosphere is great! Just a great place! We will visit again for sure!Special Features:

- The early-bird specials menuOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 2/10/2014The early-bird specials menu was not offered to us. I would not have known about it unless I found your menus on -line. Also, you menu on line offered spumoni as a dessert menu item for the early-bird specials and was not an option in the store. Otherwise, everthing was excellent. I tried a new dish, polenta that I would not have tried if our waitress did not recommend it so highly. All was delicious!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food at reasonable prices!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 2/1/2014We usually try and eat a Federal Hill, but this one popped up on OpenTable so we tried it. Very glad we did! Food was reasonable priced and very good. We ordered a bottle of wine that my daughter (who studied in Florence, Italy) said was her teachers favorite. It was delicious and I think about $31. I decided on the braised short ribs which were served on a bed of broccoli rabe and mashed potatoes. This dish was fantastic!!! My daughter had the roasted filet mignon which was served with truffle mac n cheese and grilled eggplant. She said it was very good and cooked perfectly. My husband had the Tagliatelle Bolognese and a side order of meatball. He was not impressed and thought his meal was just OK. Cannolis were only partially filled.
- Food was ok, mediocre at best.Ramses119Dined on 1/18/2014Food was ok, mediocre at best. No better than a TGIF.
- Good experienceSatisfiedcustomerDined on 1/10/2014Overall our dinning experience was good. The service and food was very good. The only problem was the size of the table for two and how close we were to the couple next to. We even joked about us blowing out thur candle on thier table. We would recommend this restaurant to others.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- First time there on New Year's EvefemamoDined on 12/31/2013We got there on time and waited 15 minutes to be seated (which was fine since it was pretty busy). Within 10 minutes of sitting down we ordered all of our food (appetizers and entrées). Our appetizers came out quickly which was nice. However we did not see our server after that. After a while he happened to stop by again and I asked him if he knew when our food was coming since it had been a really long time (it had been over an hour at this point). He politely said it shouldn't take much longer and the kitchen was very busy. The next time we saw him, he came back with our food along with the manager who apologized for the wait. I probably wouldn't go out of my way to go here, but I would eat here again if I was brought there.
- Definitely a neighborhood gem!!LaidebgsDined on 12/31/2013Love, love, love this restaurant! My family has been here many times and the food has always been perfect with no complaints. All the staff are very pleasant and the atmosphere is very relaxing. It's not your typical brick oven pizzeria as they have a wide variety of dishes to choose from. My husband especially loves their braised short ribs and orders it every time. I recently had bacon wrapped filet and it was cooked perfectly and was extremely tasty. Their prices are very reasonable and you never leave there hungry! They definitely get 5 stars from me and my family! Keep up the great work!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Overall it was a nice experience.jasonDined on 12/29/2013Overall it was a nice experience. The menu is a bit small with not many choices, for lunch anyways. I had help from my waitress to choose something good to eat. Good recommendation, but wish she told me it was from a dinner menu because it was a 19$ lunch item and I couldnt eat it all nor bring it home that day since I wasnt going home for hours.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- DisappointedIvey81Dined on 12/24/2013I visited the Fire a couple times before deciding to have xmas eve dinner there. I was completely impressed with the food, service and ambiance. But for some reason, when we went on xmas Eve it was nothing but disappointing!! First the waiter took forever to acknowledge us, next when we finally did receive our food it was horrible!. I ordered stuffed shrimps with glazed carrots and mashed potato. I literally received four tiny shrimps that were piled high with stuffing, the carrots were not cooked through and were hard without a hint of any glaze on it. My boyfriend ordered the surf and turf, and received a 5oz steak that didn't taste like anything! Very disappointed! Not returning there ever.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Another great mealLover4foodDined on 11/17/2013We have been to Fire many times and again we were very pleased with our meal. We had the Sunday special with family chicken. It was delicious from salad to main course. The chicken was very well seasoned and the pasta and potatoes were so delicious as well.Of course we love the fire baked rolls and roasted garlic oil. We highly recommend this friendly place to anyone who loves Italian delights.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- coat closetslider2071Dined on 11/15/2013made reservations on line. they wanted to know if it was our first time there said yes. was seated in a room the size of a coat closet with 4 tables each 2x2 with no view of anything. online had early bird specials but were never told until we asked. same thing happened to the only other couple sitting in this area . by the way plenty of booths in main room empty. they even know my name as we were the only people with 5 o'clock reservations food was good and service was alsoSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Menu and StaffJennCipDined on 9/28/2013We came for the first time and were looking for a yummy menu to accomodate 10 people and two were toddlers. Perfect. We called to bump up our reservation and they did it with ease and even called to let us know there may be a slight wait for the new time (maybe 5 min and the manager called for the heads up on a busy Saturday). Our server was great and not only was he attentive but nothing was missed. Water and bread filled and suggestion to order one larger meal for toddlers to split because we didn't know what the portions were like. Small gestures the I find make the experience that much more enjoyable and have slowly been forgotten by restaurants these days. Thank you, we would recommend it!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- first bad mealJerryDined on 9/20/2013The chicken picatta was bitter tasting and burned tasting even though it wasn't really burned. It was to thick for picatta and no lemony buttery delicate flavor. Other choices were quite good, especially the mussells and clams and lobster. I was disappointed Friday night. The waiter, Tim, was very nice and did a great job. I don't eat out that often and I expected the food to be very good. The choice of swiss chard as the only veggie was strange as it is so controversial and bitter. There should have been other veggies to choose from. I will come back again for another try.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- The price is right!sjgahhVIPDined on 9/19/2013This is a good, moderately priced restaurant with good food. Early birds get a real bargain. Major set back for me was traveling on Mineral Spring Ave in North Providence at about 5:30pm...go earlier or later. Traffic was bad!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- FANTASTICglensVIPDined on 7/30/2013My family and I eat at the Fire about twice a month. It is a perfect place to dine on anything from grilled pizza's, salads, pasta's to perfectly cooked lemon chicken, veal chops and many other fine foods, not to mention their clam and sausage appetizer with mouth watering broth. The menu an Italian flair and everything is cooked to perfection. By the way, they have the best steamers during the summer that you will find anywhere and I mean anywhere. One gripe....(ok no big deal) but the cheap, tissue paper thickness napkins are TERRIBLE. Ok, I got that off my mind. Just go and have a great meal.Special Features:
