First, a little background - I grew up in RI, then moved to Massachusetts for college and then stayed for 20+ years. I moved back to RI three years ago and, until August 31st, had yet to find a place that served a pizza that I would want to eat again. Yet, at times desperate for pizza, I would eat sub-par pies again and again. My other half has a security/telecom business and was working a job in Providence. He kept seeing PCFP and said he wanted to try it. Meanwhile, I saw the place featured on an episode of the Phantom Gourmet so I was willing to give it a shot.
SO GLAD WE DID! The pizza was very good. The inner part of the crust could have been a bit crisper, but everything else was just fantastic. Fresh toppings and the char on the chewy outer crust were great! And can we talk about the chicken wings? Best wings I have ever had. These weren't your typical little restaurant wings that are dumped frozen from a bag into a fryolator and coated with some sauce that came in a big jug. These are big, meaty chicken wings - coal-fired with sea salt and rosemary and covered with roasted onions. Seriously, get the large order because later in the day or the next day, you'll be wishing you had some left over to snack on!
We were there on a Saturday afternoon and sat at the bar (which, if given a choice, we always prefer to eat the bar in a place) so I cannot comment on the table service. However, Victoria, our bartender was attentive and very helpful - knowledgeable about the menu and right there if we needed a drink refill. Everything appeared clean (the restrooms were not fancy, but very clean compared to a lot of places I've been) and the atmosphere is fun. The décor is more upscale than your average pizza joint, which only added to the positive experience.
I gave it 4 out of 5 because (a) the place has very high ceilings and no sound absorption so it was quite loud, even with not a lot of people in it around 3 on a Saturday afternoon and (b) it seems that on weekends they serve only the dinner menu, even during the day. The lunch menu had some good sounding sandwiches on it which weren't on the dinner menu.
Full confession - we enjoyed this place and the meal so much that we went back the next day for more!
