As good as Naples

I'm a regular at Punch. Our family took a trip to Naples a couple years ago, and the comment from the kids about neapolitan pizza was "this is just like Punch!"

This place has an 800 degree oven (hence Neapolitan).You barely have time to get your drinks before it is at your table. I ordered some rosemary flatbread to have with dipping oils. It was only okay and redundant when eating pizza. The pizza was great. Thin crust and cooked perfectly. The ingredients on the pizza look different than what we... More

Tasty pizza for a quick meal. A decent variety of pizza - I forgot the name of the one I got, but it had lots of tasty veggies! The beer on tap was good as well!

My daughter goes to college in Minnesota and we meet up in Minneapolis a couple times a year. Our first stop is always one of the several locations of Punch Pizza. Their pizza is unfailingly fresh and delicious and their ingredients are top notch. During our most recent visit, we enjoyed one Neopolitan and one Margarita pizza and the small... More

From the time the original Punch opened in the Highland Park area of St. Paul, we were fans. The pizza was fantastic, real Neapolitan style, and the service very good, despite often long waits. We went there for years, so, when we moved to Downtown Minneapolis, we were delighted to learn that Punch had opened a Pizzeria just across the... More

Wow! This pizza was outstanding. The crust was perfectly baked, the toppings were delicious, and the specialty pizzas were refreshingly cool. On top of all that, I was told that they treat their employees very well. That goes a long way toward explaining why the service was so good

Following a trip to Italy, the family decided that Punch was, in fact, better than the pizza to be had in Naples itself. Every visit back to Punch confirms this. Go ahead, you won't be disappointed!

Having moved away from the Twin Cities a few months ago, a recent visit had to include Punch. I love the fact that Neapolitan-style pizza has become a trend - it's my favorite style - but Punch still reigns. Aside from perfect crust and delectable toppings, the place serves great local beer, has an awesome staff and offers a lovely... More

Best neapolitan pizza, I have ever had. Staff is very friendly, takes the time to educate you on cooking process. Split a salad and a pizza, enough food for 2. If you want to take some with you.. then order your own. Don't forget to ask for some fresh parmigian for the top.
