Great food in a unique colonial venue.

One of my favorite spots in Cumberland. Fratelli's is housed in an old, former civil war-era hospital. It's colonial charm is only outdone by the great food. Do NOT miss their crab chowder. Phenomenal. I have never had a bad meal there, and I am a frequent patron.

We order take out for 15 people. Pros - only one order was wrong, timely, the side salads were very good, crab cakes were okay. Cons - the pizzas had wide crust. Sauce and topping were in the center only. Pastas were greatly overcooked, Eggplant was oily and tasteless

I love pizza. In fact, many of my reviews are of exactly that. This restaurant is my personal favorite. It is too far away from me, so my visits are few and far between. Always a treat, Puccini's breaks the mold on what we all imagine pizza to be. The pies are not round and they are not square. They... More

My sister, Mother and I enjoyed dinner at Puccini's for my Mother's 80th birthday. The hit meal was the Cajun Chicken over penne...absolutely awesome. The Chicken Marsala was also very good. Our waitress was great, and the entire waitress staff sang Happy Birthday after presenting my Mother with a complimentary piece of red velvet cake, which was also marvelous.

Love this place! Wish there was one closer to Bedford. Don't get to Cumberland much but when we do- we try to come here. Pizzas are the best wood-fired!! Cheese breadsticks are fantastic!!

High on our list for an afternoon or evening treat - Puccini's offers an excellent brick oven baked gluten free pizza. Wow! We enjoy the margheritta or seafood pizzas, but have also enjoyed other entrees, such as the fresh veggie salad with mixed greens topped with candied walnuts for an exquisite lunch. Excellent bar service with a nice variety of... More

The balsamic potatoes were amazing....something a bit different. They went perfectly with the chicken Marsala. The wood fired pizzas looked quite good, too.

Over several trips in the past year we’ve always driven past Puccini’s and never stopped. This time over Memorial Day weekend since we were celebrating our 23rd anniversary, we made it a point to have a nice dinner on our long weekend trip. I am not a fan of the acoustics because we ate inside in the dining room close... More

We make it a habit to stop at Puccini's, and we are never disappointed! Their wood-fired pizza is the best, with lots of generous toppings, crisp crust and a variety of menu options.
