What a cool old building turned into a pizza/pasta joint. We ate in the basement which was a great atmosphere. Food is decent. We enjoyed the crab dip appetizer. Most of us got pizza. We enjoyed it, but the crust is very thin, almost too...More

Went to eat at this restaurant because of the great reviews I read. We were very disappointed. The pizza didn’t look anything like the picture. Not crispy, it was on the soggy side. I will say that the cream of crab soup was delicious!

Mice....Saw 3 in thirty minutes. Mice were not shy. Scurrying under diners tables. Bad sign. Informed our waitress but she was well aware and apologetic. Will never return to this place.

Went to get home made pizza from here. A little crispy but it went very well with a cold beer and some good music

Rated it a 3, but it's really a 3.5 or 3.75, just fell short of a 4 (I'm stingy with my 4 ratings). Pizza was VERY good, and they have a nice selection of different thin crust pizzas done in a wood fired oven. Kitchen...More

I ordered the crab soup and my husband had the French onion soup. Both were delicious. We split a pizza as well. Excellent food and excellent service.

My husband has life threatening peanut and tree nut allergies and safely ate here. I think if you stick to pizza, there is less risk. That is what he did. It is always a risk eating out with allergies, which stinks.

Puccini is having a Special Easter Menu, sorry no buffet. The menu is posted on our Facebook Page. Thank you for inquiring.
