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!

Have always enjoyed the ambience, food and service. A perfect spot before a Trinity play or PC Basketball game to grab tasty, fresh flatbread pizzas and wings. Best waiter service in Providence.

We were looking for something quick and fresh in downtown Providence for dinner on the last night of our vacation. Providence Coal Fired Pizza was perfect. We ordered a caesar salad and mushroom pizza. Both were delicious. The different mushroom varieties added to the flavor of the pizza. Service was great.

We had 4:15 reservations forllowing The Nutcrackerer at the PPAC. The hostess was very welcoming, we were seated immediately. Our server (I believe Dave) was outstanding. He was very attentive, able to discuss the menu, upsold apps, incredibly personable and had a great sense of humor.

We visit Providence Coal Fired as often as possible. The pizza is incredible. The cocktails are excellent!

Our 1st and only complaint ever was that our high top table wobbled awfully. I grabbed 4 cloth napkins crawled under the table to minimize the wobble, improve our experience and most importantly minimize any potential “alcohol abuse”, god forbid my mom and wife spilled their martini’s

If you’re reading this and have never been, I strong urge you to visit, you’ll be as hooked as we are.

Merry Christmas!

The pizza is so good. The wings are excellent as well. The drink specials are were not good the day we went , my drink didnt taste as it should but in the past I have gotten a seasonal sangria and it was excellent. The orices have gone up - pricey fro teh pizza/size and a small wing is very small.
The food is yummy, has lots of flavor but it is quite pricey.

The pizza was delicious as were the salads. The wines were pricy. For us old folks, the noise level made it hard for us to hear But the mood of the place was definitely upbeat and that aspect made the noise ok. Our waitress was efficient but not warm We would go there again.

I had an enjoyable and delicious dinner with a friend. Had the wings (very good, but 8 for $12.00), the conrad (sp) (delicious) , she had a glass of wine she liked and I had a beer that was great. got the bill and all eyes were on me to pay and get out. Not the waiter, but maybe the manager. What was a good dinner, left an impression, I might not come back anytime soon.

Service is spot on. The food is tasty . Worth every penny. Portions are just right. I enjoy making reservations on line and have never had any problems. This is a place you can go to with confidence you will always be treated right and always enjoy your meal and in a timely fashion. I have no complaints only kudos for Providence Coal Fired Pizza.

Salad-wings-pizza. What’s not to love. But PCFP does it a little differently. Wings are awesome, especially if you like onions. The pizza is thin, crispy, and well, coal fired! Among my favorite pizza of all time. Decent beers on tap to complete a great casual night with friends and family. I prefer a little early or later when the noise level is better. Too many hard surfaces makes for a lot of noise. Otherwise fantastic.
