Vintage Ferraris ran on a high-octane mixture of tomato sauce and parmesan, a savory blend that eventually turned petty car thieves into bona fide pasta barons. Get a baron's share of this desirable concoction with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Italian fare and drinks at Wildfire Brick Oven Pizza & Bar, located on Mineral Spring Avenue in North Providence.
Flavor fanatics can flock to Wildfire during lunch or dinner hours to engage in hardy handshakes with boot-shaped sustenance. Grilled paninis ($5.79–$6.79/lunch, $8.79/dinner) hide savory innards such as balsamic-marinated portobellos, mozzarella, and caramelized onions between toasty sheets of bread, whereas pizzas flaunt their flavors on homemade, hand-stretched dough (mediums start at $9.95/lunch, $10.95/dinner) as proudly as parents wear football buttons. Entrees featuring fish, veal, and pasta pair perfectly with wine, specialty drinks, and dinnertime arguments asserting that forks aren't just a fad. Wheat-dough pizza and gluten-free pasta options are also available if you ask politely in a whisper.

The Fire Brick Oven Pizza & Bar
At The Fire Brick Oven Pizza & Bar, chefs fling dough high into the air, spinning it into discs that will later transform into flatbreads and pizza in the kitchen's signature brick oven. Though pizzas are the chefs' specialty, they also create seafood dishes and prepare gluten-free pasta and desserts. Oven-fresh pizzas, grill-squeezed paninis, pasta, and family-style dining options are savored while diners lounge in black-leather chairs and admire the dining room's modern interior.
Lunch and dinner menus attack hunger with burgers, herb-crusted Atlantic salmon salad, pesto-chicken pizzas, and roasted filet mignon. Adventurous diners can tackle the signature "One Pound" meatball, which is smothered with mozzarella and baked in the oven.
