Clean. Bright. Open. Fresh feeling. Great bar. Great bar tenders. Excellent pizza — we had 4 (fiur) different ones, all excellent. Wait staff needs to watch less Sunday NFL and pay more attention to their people

Being from the New Haven area we tend to be a little skeptical of pizza in other places. This was excellent! A great sauce, good dough cooked just right, Try the Chicken Parmesan, you won’t be disappointed.

Our hostess Destiny I believe was her name was super friendly and welcoming. Our waiter made a wonderful recommendation for a pizza that I had never tried before. White pizza with prochuto. So delicious!

Have been here 4 times in last 2 years and will certainly return. Food was great. Service was good. Only negative was two of my guests ordered beer. One glass of tap beer was flat and not very cold. The other was bottled beer and not cold. Server did remove the cost of the tap beer from my check and a bottled beer and a cold drinking glass Was fine.. My other guest switched to a soft drink. Did not want to order another bottled beer because it would also be coming from the same refrigerator. Maybe the refrigerator was malfunctioning or needs to be replaced? Beer needs to be cold. All in all, we enjoyed our experience.dq

I eat at PCFP at a minimum once/month. I drive one hour each time and I can't get enough! It's (by far) the best pizza in town! The wait staff is so friendly and accommodating its so worth the drive!!!!

Food was very good. Once we received our food we didn’t see our waiter again until I asked a busboy to look for him. Seemed like other servers were good but ours was basically non-existent

We were seated right away at a nice table for five! Our martinis were great, pizzas also! It's just difficult to carry on a conversation there once the crowds arrive!

When restaurant is full it is difficult to have a conversation as it becomes very loud.

Please check the phone number attached to this restaurant that you have on file. While in traffic and trying to call PCFP, the number with our reservation did not go through. Had to Google it to retrieve the correct number and upon arrival when we showed them the phone number we were told that was not their number.

The mushroom pizza is fantastic. The beet salad presentation was delicious and the presentation was unique. Dinner is affordable and we walk to the theatre afterwards.

Great place to go before a hockey game! Great service, SUPER pizza, and the best tomato soup in Providence! Cocktail and beer menus are excellent as well. But be warned ... it's LOUD in there! One thing to check out are the coal-fired wings - different and really super! We've been more than a handful of times, and you can bet we'll be back. Go Bruins! Go Providence Coal Fired!!

Pizza is great. Pictures of local sports teams great. Please build more rest rooms! Also, post signs to remind rest room users that others may be waiting!

Pizzas cost $20+ each and were fairly small in size... but fresh. Too expensive for pizza. It was good but not great for that price.

We're frequent PCFP flyers because the food and drinks are delicious, the bill is always reasonable and the service is attentive and friendly. A+ to Andrew our server for being available but not hovering.

It was pretty good. I’d skip the pesto chicken pizza but the more traditional pizzas were very good. Meatball appetizer was very good also. Bar area was nice. Service was fine.

Overall this place is good.

Wonderful setting in business/government section of downtown Providence. Efficient service and warm handsome airy space. Margherita and pepperoni pizza were good; Caesar salad fine. Nice place to gather and food better than average.

Great pizza and might even give my favorite Flatbread Pizza company a run for their money. I wasn't that impressed with my cocktail, but that's probably my menu choice than anything else. I don't know why I thought I should have Jalapeno anything in my drink.

Great evening. Prompt seating. Loved the chicken wings. Prosciutto and mixed green salad was 2 thumbs up. Only negative is the noise level. My husband and I couldn’t hear each other speak once the place was filled.

It was extremely hot inside and service seemed hectic. Food was great though! I would go back again. Likely it was so crazy because people were going before heading to Hamilton.

They have poor interpretations of “bruschetta” and “margherita”. We chose this restaurant specifically for the valet which they did not have on a busy Sunday night and we paid $20 to park. Very loud

Table was ready for our 5pm reservation. Table service was very good, waitress friendly and helpful. Salad first course was brought first and was fresh and crisp. Shared pizza was excellent as always. Have to use a reservation if the night of a show at PPAC otherwise seating will be tough. Valet parking is very convenient. Will definitely be back.
