Alfonso was terrific. Really enjoyed our conversation. Got lots of good advice and a few laughs too. I always recommend you to friends. Your Baby Bella pizza is the best I have ever had.

Appetizers seemed small portions. Didn’t care for the onions on the wings. Pizza was outstanding!! Bella pizza was great!! Will definitely be back. Was cool to see the PC Friars B-ball Team there.

IF this restaurant had not already been our go-to place for pre-theater or sports events in downtown Providence, our meal the other night would have clinched it. We ordered a Caesar salad, as a treat, and it came out with chicken on it, and the manager offered it to us at the regular price, which we happily accepted! Delish! Our server Alonzo was awesome and attentive. PLUS, when they heard it was my husband's birthday, the manager brought out butterscotch pudding! How thoughtful! Thanks again for the wonderful meal and outstanding service!

We were a group of 7 people. Everyone loved their meals. Pizza was great, beet salad, chicken Caesar salad & hummus salad were outstanding. Great place to go before a show. Only downside was it was noisy for a larger group. Would be ok for a table of 4.

Food was very good. 2 of us split the beet salad and the pizza special. Was a bit disappointed that we made a reservation but the table was not great... Near the server station, jammed in.. One of us facing brick wall,.and there were several high top tables available. People without reservations got those tables... Granted for 4, but could have been separated...

We were going to a show at PPAC and waned a quick and relatively inexpensive place to eat. This fit our expectations and more! We had a reservation, were seated immediately and the waiter came right over to take our drink orders. We shared chicken wings, salad and pizza and everything was delicious. Plus, they have complimentary valet parking and PPAC is very close. I highly recommend providence coal fired pizza!

I have literally never written a review before, preferring to show my feelings about a restaurant through repeat business and recommendations. However, I have to share at least a skeletal sketch of my experience on Friday night: to warn other diners about the type of person that Providence Coal Fired has managing their flagship. Friends and I were out for dinner & some drinks following a very, very difficult week. While the food was excellent, as always, our drinks were sad and watery. They were mostly melted ice & mixer, almost no alcohol. (When a person orders a rum punch, they generally expect a bit of rum in the drink.) When we mentioned this to our waitress - who was very nice - she apologized & informed her manager, exactly as she ought to have done. The manager appeared at our table to tell us that although he had taken one set of drinks off of the bill, clearly we were *wrong* because the drinks had included their “standard pour.” His manner was exceedingly patronizing and misguidedly pedantic. He was also clearly a sizeist misogynist and was smirking the entire time he was talking at us about our wrongness in daring to ask that the drinks be remade. He had such a rude demeanor and engaged in such gross behavior, I promise I’ll never go back here.

The wings were everything I'd read about - meaty, tasty, and I loved the grilled onions. Pizza's were great,too. Definitely going back for more!

PCFP on P-Bruins hockey night is always packed with families so the noise level tends to get high. Other than that I've never had a bad experience there!

Called in advance to inquire about vegan options and loved the fact that their dough is vegan. This allowed the entire family to enjoy their pizza!
