Great food!! You can't go wrong with their pizza, crab soup, carb cakes, salads, lasagna...well pretty much everything is tasty! It does get packed downstairs, especially if you are sitting at the bar. Service can be a little slow, but other than that... great place for a good meal and drinks!

Everything I had seemed like a bad frozen food heated up. The calamari had an old oil taste to it. We moved on to my entree of chicken Marsala. Not good. No great taste and over cooked pasta. Than the zucchini fries old oil again and no taste. Avoid at all costs.

Was looking for a good place for lunch to study for my final exams. Its kind of a hidden place cuz its on the outskirts of Cumberland. My gps actually suggested to eat here. Don't let the exterior fool you. Parking is tight, but once you walk through the door, its like you are home. A nice, welcoming atmosphere mixed... More

Great location, easy to get to off I-68 and located in a great historic building. Their breadsticks, crab soup and crab cakes are among my favourites and, when the weather is good, having dinner on their patio is very nice. Great collection of beers too. Friendly atmosphere and a nice staff. Highly recommended!

Stopped there last night after picking up my daughter from college. We have never been here so we are always a little anxious. Puccini's was so crowded that we could only be seated outside, not a problem. Service from our waitress was excellent, I was impressed by how quickly all the wait staff "hustled" the entire night. We ordered a... More

Were not convinced since our last visit but gave it a try again which was a catastrophy. Ordered a grilled tuna to be grilled rear but was served something between medium and well done. Although I was offered another plate or a dessert, I refused the offer. The well done grilled tuna was taken of the check without any discussion.... More

This restaurant had some history being a motel and other things before it's current incarnation. Being in Cumberland, you'd think a basic menu, but it was very robust. Portions were good and very tasty. I'd recommend this for good pasta or pizza.

We stayed at the casino at Rocky Gap and wanted to avoid the buffets. This was a fabulous choice. I had the Chesapeake pizza with crab and shrimp while my husband went for the meat lovers. Both were top notch. The real jewel of the meal was the bee sting cake. Save room because it's well worth the calories!

We enjoyed exquisite wood fired pizza at Uncle Tucker's. This is in the basement of Puccini's. Do not expect your typical pizza. DO expect a culinary delight! We had 3 different personal pan size pizzas. The goat cheese with arugula was divine! The Chesapeake pizza, exquisite, and the Con Carne fantastic! Remember, these are NOT your typical pizzas, but a... More
