The pizza is always great at Punch! However, on this particular trip the soft drinks were not available. We were not offered an alternative for the inconvenience. Don't worry, we will be back to Punch!

This was obviously the "cool" place to eat for when we arrived there was a line out the door. Never fear, the 90 second pizza is here. That's right. Every pizza only takes 90 seconds in their stone fired oven. We sat outside and enjoyed delicious Neapolitan style pizza.

I love Punch. If I had my way, I'd eat it every other day. Their style is authentic, rustic, and delicious. I always get the margherita pizza which, amazing as it is on its own, is made even more glorious when I top it with prosciutto and arugula. I DIE. They also have great salads- I love the Punch Salad... More

I am a Midwest transplant, originally from the East Coast, and made several trips to NYC each year, so I grew up with good pizza. I am typically somewhat critical of things "Midwest" and I am biased toward things back east like Philly Cheesesteaks and Maryland Crab Cakes. But I must say that the Punch Pizza locations in the Twin... More

But it's the way the food is cooked in a hot oven not just the service. This restaurant is more of an eat and run place the way it's setup. The oven cooks the food quickly. This leaves fresh ingredients fresh but hot and still melts the cheese without stewing everything in a bread bowl. The marguerita style pizza is... More

OK, I will admit the salad was good but who can't make a good salad? The pizza, however, was not what I want when I want pizza. I think I'm just not into this style of pizza. Give me Savoy's any day!

Love this place. The pizza is delicious and the atmosphere is nice as well. They offer deals on their social media pages- my favorite is when they offer the change to order "dead" pizzas! Pizzas they no longer make on a regualr basis.

I LOVE this place! We've been to several of the locations and it's always a treat. We're from rural WI - the land of deep fried cheese curds - so this is always a pleasant and welcome change for us. I love the bubbly crust. The Vesuvio pizza with the spicy sausage and hot peppers is my favorite. I'm a... More

My favorite pizza! Friendly staff and quick service despite always a busy place. I always try to stop here when I visit the Minneapolis area.
