Pizza joints are experiencing a revolution in Providence. Gone are the days of takeout counters, fridges filled with bottles of generic soda and the micro sized seating area. Now pizza enthusiasts can enjoy pizza at a big table with freshly poured beer from a tap and eat their pizza without having to wait for a 20-minute delivery. This is Pizza J, a place where a groups large and small can sit, sip and watch a movie on the big screens as they enjoy classic pizza with a gourmet twist.

Powered by the minds behind Julian’s, a place known for revolutionizing the way we eat brunch, Pizza J brings their pizza and appetizers to the next level. Sure you can still get an American Beauty, a classic cheese pizza with fresh dough mozzarella, tomato sauce and herbs, but you can also get a Beautiful Yeti which is a pie with slow roasted pork, smoky barbeque sauce, shaved red onion, cheddar cheese and scallions. Not to mention their appetizers like their Italian eggroll stuffed with capicola, mortadella, salami, white onion, prosciutto, provolone and herb vinaigrette. There are 18 beers on tap featuring both local and national breweries with an array of taste for everyone not to mention their cocktails.

Insider Tip: Specialty pizzas are thrown into the mix every few days, and these pies are certainly special like the white pie with prosciutto, arugula, ricotta, salt, pepper and Parmesan.
