Fellini’s Pizzeria has been a Providence staple since opening their doors on Wickenden St in 1989, and has built it’s reputation on the whole wheat New York style crust that serves as the base for their creative pies.
Why I love Fellini’s, and I’ll even put aside the fact that I have been eating their pizza ever since I was a small child; if Providence had a personality, Fellini’s would embody it. A classic traditional eatery, that add it’s own funk and flair to everything they serve. More of a standard pizza kind of guy? Go with a standard cheese and pepperoni. Feeling up for more of a wild ride? Try out the Kitchen Sink (Penne pasta, feta cheese, scallions, roasted red peppers topped with pepperoni and parmesan peppercorn sauce, *whew*)
At their two locations, Providence & Cranston, Fellini’s serves fresh hot pizza (it’s true, just look at their sign) by the slice or the whole pie. If that wasn’t enough, they also serve a selection of hot and cold sandwiches and a cold case featuring salads (both the green stuff and pasta salad etc). To top it all off, they’ve got house made sweets like cannolis, brownies, blondies, and their signature whoopie-pies.
While Cranston offers a full bar, the Providence location is BYOB. So pop a cork, put some quarters in the pinball machine, and wait for your dreamy pizza to be ready.
