Pizza is good. In an area with declining bargain dining this is a good safe bet. No delivery to our neighborhood. IF they came over to Rumford we would order more often.

I've been coming here since I was a child, and I'm glad they now have gluten free and wheat pizzas. I'm especially fond of their Greek salad with their homemade salad dressing.

I chose this place for a light lunch in the otherwise upscale Wayland Square neighborhood thinking it would be decent and safe. I also had thought that a neighborhood pizza place could not be so bad. Things got off to an awful start when my nicely asking the woman at the counter to please heat up two slices of cheese... More

good crust and toppings make this a well known location in the Wayland Sq. area. you will like the location and you will find parking a bit sparce but some on street parking and a few lots are in the area. this is a clean location and you will enjoy a snice sandwich as well.

Brand new to Providence, my son and I were hungry for Pizza so I Googled nearby places and we decided to try Minerva. What a surprise! This is literally the best pizza I've ever tasted. I had a Sausage/Onion/Mushroom pizza and it was unreal. All of the ingredients were super fresh and the combination was delicious. I will always go... More

Saturday morning at Blackstone Boulevard - time to enjoy the public green space, and go for "a good stretch of the legs". Starting at the intersection of Blackstone and Hope Street, my friend and I walked all the way down to the end of the path before continuing on to Wayland Square. And there - if you go to your...

I've been living in Providence near Wayland Square for the past seven years (grad student at Brown), and Minerva's is my go-to spot for great calzones. First off, they are humongous, the small is probably what you want for one person (its pretty big, like medium pizza big, I made the mistake of ordering a large one time, trust me,... More

We wanted to order take out pizza the other day and my friend wanted to do Dominos. I said NO WAY! How can we order chain pizza in Providence, the home of the best pizza (see my review for Bob & Timmy's). We compromised and ordered pizza from the local place down the street in Wayland Square. Not impressed. The... More
