NICE Pizza!

Went here for a business lunch last week. Decided to have the 'Meat Lover's' small pizza. I could've ordered the large and eaten the whole thing. This is some fine thin crust pizza. Fresh ingredients with a lot of meat. Tasty sauce without being overpowering. I will be going back for 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.

Made reservations a week ago and at that time they told me we would have to be seated in the bar downstairs which was fine. When we arrived our reservation consisted of a booth with a chair pulled up at the end which would have literally put that seat in the main aisle obstructing anyone walking by the bar. Ridiculous....

After checking out the reviews , I went to see for myself. The food was great and right down the road from the rocky gap resort where we stayed.

Located in an old hotel and motel alongside I-68, this restaurant delivers imaginative, fresh food at a reasonable price. No processed food service rot here! We usually stop here for lunch, and the sandwiches and salads are wonderful. Desserts are memorable, and service excellent.

Private birthday party for family member. Downstairs party room a little small for the crowd, and with the pizza ovens nearby it was uncomfortably hot. Food , pizza and pasta was ok, service was good.

Just off Bedford exit of route 68 you can find excellent wood fired pizza at Puccini's. We enjoyed a Mediterranean pizza with shrimp, crab, tomatoes, basil & cream cheese. It was just delicious with a few craft brews. We also shared a huge house salad with a lump crab cake topper. Try this great artsy restaurant full of character upstairs... More

The pizza and crab dip are my favorites. The pizza is cooked by a wood fire stove. The atmosphere is awesome.

Ok, not great. Service was fine but food was bland. Grilled chicken wrap was supposed to have guacamole on it, but didn't and was dry. Coffee was good. I should have ordered a pizza.
