We had no plans to stop here and had never heard of it. As we took the exit to get on Rt 220 we saw the signs and stopped for lunch. It was a great decision. It is a house that has been converted into a restaurant so the layout is a little strange but interesting. The pizza was great... More

My good was of terrible quality, and the presentation was awful. Our waitress was not very busy but took forever to get to us/get refills. There was an exceptional waitress, amber. I'd highly recommend her.

The brick oven pizza is the high point of Puccini's. The crust is perfect, and the combinations excellent - not cheap, but well worth it. Other menu items are really overpriced and underwhelming - especially the Calamari - expensive, meager portions, and it was overcooked to the consistency of rubber bands. Fish and chips isn't bad, but is way overpriced... More

What a great place for wood fired pizza nestled in the mountains. Truly a gem located in a historic building for the people who live in Cumberland, I will stop from now on whenever I'm close.

The pizza was great and the draft was crafty and reasonably priced. It is great to find this kind of place along the Interstate! Highly recommended!

With glowing reviews and many complements from other members of my family, we made our way to the restaurant after our visit to the Outer Banks. The restaurant was not busy and we were seated promptly, however our waitress was not very friendly. With thoughts of being healthy I ordered a goat cheese and arugula spinach pizza and 2 bowls...

Went here with my family, three boys 16,14,11 and my wife. Appetizers were good, crab dip great, meatball solders ok. Pizza all around and we were happy with our selections. Many different rooms, liked that the music wasn't too loud, or that it wasn't too cold and not too noisy. Enjoyable dinner, would go again!
