Hand tossed, cooked over a wood fire, fresh toppings, you can't go wrong. They also have some pizzas with unusual toppings. Try it, you will like it. We went there to meet a very nice couple last year. It is halfway between our place and theirs. Was good enough to get us back again this year. Nice rustic setting in... More

Food and service were both quite good - lots of beer choices. Portions were very large - my wife and I each had a salad and split the lasagna. Plenty of food, and the prices are reasonable.

Came back to Cumberland for a weekend getaway from northern Virginia. Looking forward to having dinner at Puccini's as we had enjoyed it a few years back. Apparently their pizza recipe must have changed and we found the food to be very disappointing. The crust in particular tasted like a cracker and the sauce tasted like they had just used... More

I had Aloha pizza. It was ok but parts of the crust were burnt. I prefer Sicilian pizza.The caezar salad was very good and I had it with anchovies.

Just had dinner at this old house converted to a restaurant. French onion soup was great. Filet was good. Service was good. Have gone past this restaurant for many years and finally tried it.

Travel regularly from Harrisburg, Pa. to Fairmont WV. & this restaurant is among one of our favorites. Stopped yesterday around lunch and had their style of "meat lovers pizza". It's thin crust and extremely flavorful. All the meals we've had here have been great, no complaints. Finding and getting to the restrooms is a little bit of an adventure, but... More

October 9 trip to Rocky gap for some camping and went to Puccini for some dinner. The downstairs bar was open and sat right away. The beers on tap are not the same as upstairs, but that is OK they will get whatever you need. Had the Cream of Crab soup for my appetizer. There aren't a lot of chunks... More

My wife and I visited Cumberland (lovely town!) for a family funeral. Following the internment at the cemetery, we all visited Puccini's for a late (2:30 PM) lunch. With no reservations or advance notice, the team at the restaurant handled our crowd of 25 family members with ease. The food was delicious, prepared as ordered and offered generous portions. Felt...

Overall good dining experience although it's flatbread pizza. Good selection of ingredients. Abundant salads, tasty house Italian dressing. Service is basic, no extras offered. We would Go back if in the area but know what to expect.

Went to this place in Cumberland, based on other reviews. It is not in the downtown area, but only 5 minutes away. The wood fired pizza is great and you can tell they only use the best specialty ingredients. Top that off with some great craft beer and a yummy warm bacon capresse appetizer and you have a great go... More
