Surprise Birthday party

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.

We have been going to Puccini's for about 8 years now and have seen the restaurant "grow up". The menu has been changed and improved over the years and we have always had a delicious experience. The service is always efficient and pleasant and Heidi, the manager runs a tight ( but friendly) ship. She always takes time to chat... More

I will begin by saying that the food was very good. They are known for their wood fired pizzas, and I definitely recommend it. There was a variety of pre-topped pies, in addition to a generous selection of toppings to chose from. We also had a yummy mushroom ravioli dish. Now to my complaint. We went for dinner on a...

If you're from a metro area with hundreds of good restaurants within a couple miles, you can forget how hard it is to find a satisfying restaurant in a small city like Cumberland. This restaurant has tasty food, a good selection of drinks, and an enjoyable ambiance even if it is quite homespun. The food is mainly pizzas and family... More

My friend took me for lunch at Puccini's. She ordered the famous pizza and I ordered a sandwich. The pizza looked great. The roll on my sandwich could have been a lot fresher. Their homemade fries are the best. The main problem with our visit was bad service. The restaurant was not busy. We had to wait quite a while... More

The food here is above average. Sometimes the customers are below average... I have to give the servers credit though. One of them spoke up to try to quiet the children (teenagers).

hubby took me for my birthday at my request - our first dinner out in Cumberland was at Puccini's predecessor Uncle Tucker's. Were seated in the really cool pizza cellar. Cheesy breadsticks were great as was the pizza. Our server appeared to be really irritated that she had to wait on us. I'm not sure why since we didn't order... More
