About five weeks ago, I had my first dinner (with my SIBS and SIL) at Providence Coal Fired Pizza. It was really, really good. Although, I live in The Berkshires, (my family has been in Providence three generations), I am a Rhode Islander through and through (Aldrich Jr. High, Classical '62), and I am in Providence every couple of weeks. Two weeks ago, on my way out of town, I went there to get takeout...I explained that I needed reassurance that it would travel well because not all pizza does. They stood behind their product. Well, they were absolutely right. The pizza was great that evening. MORE IMPORTANTLY, in a way, is that they are all so very friendly and affable. I was offered coffee or mineral water for while I was waiting. Their friendliness was expressed to everyone who walked through the door while I was waiting. Today, I went again to get take out to bring home, and they were just as friendly and nice. I hope they are doing really well because with that combination of great product and the welcoming stance of the staff, they certainly deserve it.
