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

We have driven by this restaurant numerous times with our travels but finally decided to stop today. We chose to eat in the pizza cellar. It had a rustic, cozy feel. The server was very friendly and prompt. We ordered the coal fired pizza. It has very thin crust and was a little burnt on parts of it. The overall... More

Zucchini fries are a must. Kid friendly with cloth napkins. Pepperoni & cheese with extra sauce!!!! Classy place for a date or a family dinner. Easy on easy off interstate.

I have spent 10+ years working in the restaurant business and managed the most prestigious restaurant in our entire area. I understand the business inside and out. After my experience this evening I do not plan on going back. I know how busy it is on the weekends at all food places. We walked in the door and stood without... More

I’ve driven past this place for years and this past weekend decided to stop and check it out… I wish I would have stopped in years ago! Their pizza is excellent, the service was excellent and the staff in general was all extremely happy and nice. I did try their fried zucchini sticks, they were very disappointing and in my... More
