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.

The food is good, but when I go to a restaurant I don't need to hear about politics, and that one side or the other is the only way to think. All of the employees were talking about was how the owner was with Obama this, and that, and that people should be doing this or that. I came to... More

We took our friends from out of state here as the reviews were nothing but good. The place is really chaotic and the pizza is ok. The four of us agreed that it's not a place to go out of your way to dine here.

You will not be disappointed with the pizza place... The crust is delicious as well as their sauce. The pizzas are big enough for 1 and then some. A little too small for 2 people depending on how many topping and because the crust is super thin. My only suggestion is the price is a bit high. One person eating... More

Many people who have been to Italy say this pizza is just like what they had in Italy, I wouldn't know about that but it is the best pizza I've ever had. The margherita extra is to die for. It has buffalo mozzarella, sweet Mount Vesuvius tomatoes, and basil. Crispy charred crust but soft and gooey in the center. Use... More

This pizza is always a great treat. Friendly service to boot. Keep in mind that this is the original Punch restaurant in the area and is considered a sit down restaurant in comparison to the other Punch restaurants which are walk in and order.
