Excellent salad with meat, cheese, nuts and different lettuces. The pizzas were good but not the best I've ever had. Lots of different selections were available.

WOW what a treat to find a real Neapolitan Pizza place in the Twin Cites. The pizza is authentic Neapolitan straight from Naples. The crust is thin, crisp and has a traditional chewy edge. I had the mainstay Margarita which was terrific. The service was excellent and the time from putting in our order to getting the pies was 10... More

I went with a couple pickier kids - we did two margherita pizzas and a 1/2 punch salad. The focaccia that came with the salad with the rosemary was absolutely delish. The pizza came super fast and was yummy. Can't wait to go back & be able to be a bit more adventurous and try some of their other pizzas.

I love this place, low price, fast service and fantastic pizza. I've been to Minnesota 3 times now and have had about 6 punch pizzas, I can't get enough!!

Maybe it's me but I'm just not into that burnt taste this pizza brings. I know it's the wood fire grill that does it. But just not my style. I enjoy it cheesy! Otherwise Place was nice, friendly staff, fresh ingredients.

We love the chop salad so much we drop by n have one almost weekly. We also love that they have spiced salami as a pizza topping. The only thing keeping us from giving them 5stars is the generally 2buck-chuck low quality wine. Very Un-Italian. (Thank goodness for the sociable cider!!)

My favorite are the Punch Salad and Prochiuto i Fungi! It is exactly an Italian Pizza place, the crust is thin, freshly made, melts in your mouth! It is usually crowded and the wait is a little long, but it's all worth it!

Love this place!!! the flavors are absolutely authentic. Don't get me wrong, I like American style pizza, but when I want real Italian I go to Punch.

Delicious pizza! The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive! The restaurant was spotlessly clean AND our order was ready in minutes! All of this from a socially responsible (they pay their employees a living [above minimum] wage) company!

We stayed in St. Paul and ended up eating here twice! We loved how you can add your own toppings, the crust is crisp and doughy. The setting is casual and the food is fantastic. If there is a long line don't be deterred as they are quick to serve and it's worth the short wait.
