Pizza gettogether in Providence

  • 8

Best place to have a family type reunion in providence. up to 16 people and would like a private corner where we can all sit together. Of course the pizza must be the best in town.

  1. best bet is to be specific about what kinda pizza you like, and what type of crowd - the hill alone offers 4 considerably different types of pies - deep dish, wood grilled, thin crust, and sicilian....then there's the al forno/bacaro take on it...and fellinis...

      We like em all. Mainly we want to be able to hang out for a few hours and eat several pies and have a few drinks. Kind of a bar room effect.

    2. If you like RI style (i.e. a thick rectangular pizza), Twins in North Providence is by far my family's favorite. A decided step above Tommy's and Casserta's. The main dining room is all booths, but what used to be the smoking dining room has tables and a bar. I would think they could accomodate in that room, though I would probably call ahead.

        Can't find Twins in phone book. Is that the correct name? Thanks

          The website has pictures of the restaurant. As you will see wood panelling prevails.

      2. bob & timmy's for thin wood grilled and a lotta options. room's small, so you might want to call ahead.

        1. Meatball Mikes in Cranston, just south of Providence, is the exact atmosphere you're describing, and some of the best pizza I've had. There are one or two other places for takeout that have better pizza, but if you're looking for dine-in I definitely recommend meatball mikes. (fyi, I'm a jersey-born pizza snob)

          1. I change my mind. Feast or Famine, which has locations in Warren, North Providence, and Cranston. I go to the one in Cranston. You won't be dissapointed. Locally owned, great pizza & lots of other menu items; good drinks.
