Fantastic pizza and a comfortable, upscale atmosphere. Their crust is perfectly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The toppings are very tasty. Nice beer selection as well. Great place to grab a bite.

Enjoyed the chicken wings, and the mushroom pizza, although thought it was pricey!
Bar service was excellent, attentive and they made great drinks.
A lively and fun place after the PCC event!

Super waitress - knowledgeable -attentive and responsive. Chefs do a superb pizza crafted to serve 2 different orders. Chocolate mousse luscious . Noise level detracts from experience. Is there an acoustic intervention that could dim the roar on a Sat PM ?

Despite the fire alarm going off, the thirty 10 year old boys hockey team and their parents and coaches making too much noise and then the 20 men that took our server from us, it was good. LOL We have been many times before and will go again. We really like the place...........this visit was just the pits. But the food was still great!!

Extremely Loud, at one point I had to scream so my date could hear me. To top it off the fire alarm rang at the end of the meal and we evacuated.

It was Valentine’s Day. The restaurant was running a special which was delicious and a great value! The valet was the only hiccup of the night. The restaurant was very busy, there was no on street parking available as there was a big event downtown, and there was only one valet to park and retrieve cars with no order. We waited a solid 20 minutes for valet to park our car then when we left the restaurant we waited outside in the cold for over ten minutes before we returned to the restaurant to inquire where the valet was- he had left for the night and our keys were inside but no one had informed us!!

Went for Valentine's Day with husband. I loved the lobster pizza that was the day's special. We had the wings as an appetizer. They were good, but a bit dry.

We go here whenever we go to Providence Dunk for an event. We are from Boston so we make reservations for dinner and park near the restaurant and walk to Dunk. The meal is always the best part of the night. Amazing food, amazing staff. I never write a r view but because this place is our def fav I had to! Plus, I was stuck in traffic and they took my order before I arrived and held my table as well. Not sure if any place else would do this- especially as people were waiting for tables. Top notch!!

My daughter and I got reservations prior to attending a show at PPAC. It was a very short walk, we were seated right away and the service was great. The pizza is crave-worthy and they had a great beer selection as well. We will definitely be returning!

We arrived about 30 minutes before our reservation because the PC basketball game ended early. The place was packed. They accommodated us and we sat down earlier than our reservation. Service was fast in spite of the crowd. We ordered pizza. It came to the table with the crust black. Now from what we saw when we arrived ALL pizzas had a blackened crust. Not what we like. Overall the food was good. A very energetic place for groups. According to my spouse the restrooms were horrible.

Great Pizza! Almost as good as the famous pizza of Pepes and Sally's in New Haven, CT. The superb quality of the sausage and pepperoni and the spicy sauce and delicious crust was memorable. Wings were great too. Nice fun "happening" atmosphere with friendly service. Excellent that they also take reservations. Great preshow place to go.

Made a reservation on Open Table for 5:00 because we were seeing Sebastian Maniscalco at the PPAC at 7:00. Valeted our car, for free (with tip of course). We sat right down, and our waiter, Joe came right over. He was incredibly friendly and attentive. We had a delicious antipasto to start and then had the rabe, sausage and ricotta pizza. It was VERY good (maybe a little more garlic). We both had cocktails and the bill was incredibly reasonable. Walked to the PPAC, saw a GREAT show. Came back to the restaurant and the valet was there, took our ticket, and was so courteous and kind. We waited maybe 5 minutes for the car. Such efficiency! Thanks for a great night, Providence Coal Fire Pizza!

Group of friends meets and eats here before PC games. Very good pizza, great wings (and I am not a wings guy, hate to work at my food but these are worth it). Convenient parking and close the Dunkin' Donut Center. All around great place.

We were a party of 9 and were there for pre-theater lunch, so because we had limited time I made reservations the day before. The moment we arrived, they had all are orders ready to deliver to our table. The meals were fresh and delicious, and the service was prompt and attentive. I’ll definitely be back.

We always enjoy Providence Coal Fired. Had a great table we had requested and a free desert for my husband’s birthday. Our server, Kayla, was terrific. We always get wings and a pizza ( today was half pepperoni and half The Conrad)
Looking forward to our next time!

We have eaten here before. We eat here before we go to a PPAC show. We were seated right away. The food was delivered timely. We even had time for dessert - the best part - cannoli's.
We ordered bruschetta , it was more of garlic bread with a dip, it was good. We also ordered a steak pizza, we have had this before but we mush have ordered it without the blue cheese and we had a chicken pizza. The food is hot, great service. A fun place to go and hang out with friends.

It was my first time going to Providence Coal Fire Pizza and I was concerned about where I was going to park...but I was sooo happy to see you have "Complementary valet parking"! I met a few friends there Thursday night and I can honestly say you have the BEST Arugala Pizza I've ever had!!!
I'm looking forward to taking my husband next time! I can't wait to go back!
