I've been coming to Punch since they were just 1 location. I've also had Neapolitan style pizza all over the U.S. as well as Italy. This place rivals Italy and in my opinion is one of the best in US. Try Visuvio or ToTo- yum! They make it simple and it's soooo good. Now that I live in Chicago, I... More

Having spent much of my life in what I consider the great Neopolitan thin-crust pizza corridor of the U.S. (New York to New Haven), I was surprised when my son raved about this chain in Minneapolis-St. Paul. They are casual, family-friendly spots with soft drinks plus wonderful beer and wine selections available. My son ordered a margarita pizza with prosciutto... More

Thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry you didnt enjoy the extra. I wanted to let you know if you are able to visit again a couple of things that may improve your experience with pizza ordering. First, some customers prefer their pizzas at punch a little drier, so we offer "punch dry" as an option. We add less... More

Visiting friends for a weekend and they introduced us to this neighborhood gem. It's casual come as you are. Thin crust creations with interesting ingredient combinations. Thoroughly enjoyed the Siciliana with prosciutto, artichoke and olives. Although, the Margherita was equally great. Tough call on which one to get next. Will definitely be back as often as possible.

The wood fired pizzas at Punch are incredible. The quality of the pizza is consistently excellent, and the salads are terrific, too. They are very particular about using quality ingredients, so the flavor is authentic Neapolitan. Reasonable prices, and efficient and knowledgable servers.

Best place around for wood fire, brick oven pizza. Artichoke dip/pita bread appetizer is outstanding too.

My first experience with Punch was good. The za is delicious in that I'm not concerned with a little slice of greasy enjoyment. While the za wasn't entirely unique it was quite edible. I will say $3 more for a smaller gf pizza is a bit pricey.

Punch Pizza has mastered the wood fire. This is not a heavy meal and you leave full and satiated but not overstuffed. There are tables to sit and be leisurely about your meal, and, while you can chance walking in to eat, this should clue you to making a reservation. The food is excellent.
