Go for simple margherita

I always order a "simple" margherita. The pizza is delicious and very inexpensive. This is my recommendation. And their complementary sparkling water is a nice perk. The wait time for the pizza is super short. I have never ordered them. Salads look very good but they are pricey. Also, if you add... read more

Truly the best pizza around. I would eat here every day if I could a spair the calories. Inexpensive and delicious, try the Tuscan or any of the other varieties and if with a group add the anti pasto salad.

Our family eats here multiple times a month. The pizza and salads are always excellent. Everything is made fresh before your eyes as you order and brought to your table in minutes. This isn't your typical pizza joint. If you like great food made quickly in a casual environment you should absolutely try it. I would go for the salads... More

We eat at Punch nearly every time we're in St. Paul. The thin, wood-fired crust is unbeatable. All toppings are high quality. I crave the pizza as well as the salad. The dressing is mild and pine nuts add a crunchy appeal. Also, Punch is owned by a Minnesotan -- not a big chain. The owner was present and recognized... More

Family particularly likes Punch Pizza as they have the ability to deal with a dairy allergy, rare for a pizza restaurant. They have a pleasant outdoor "patio" which is fortunate because the shape of the room and the hard surfaced walls makes inside very loud and conversation difficult. They have a long table down the middle with straight back wooden... More

The interior of Punch Pizza isn't anything super fancy, but their staff greeted us with a warm smile and were very helpful in deciding what to order for lunch. The salad was pretty decent, but I didn't think the focaccia bread that came with it was all that great. I really liked the crust on the pizza. I would suggest... More

Outstanding as always; every pizza lover must sample this unique and refreshing difference. 90 seconds at 850 degrees equals delicious!

Some of the best pizza I've had! Choose your own ingredients for individual pizza - good size, about 12 inches. The Gluten free crust was absolutely yummy! Takes only 5 minutes to cook in wood oven. Regular crust gets rave reviews also! During nice weather it's open air. We'll go back next time we are in town!

I liked the location (Grand Avenue) and the staff. The Napoli pizza was priced right Though it seemed if possible, watery. The sausage did not add to much to the flavor of the fire blackened pizza crust. So skip the extra dollar fifty and enjoy the $6.50 Napoli pizza. My wife had the Bruni which she reports had plenty of... More

This is not your ordinary pizza. It's better. Paired with the Punch salad, it makes for the best meal. Not too tomato-y and just the right amount of toppings spread evenly.
