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.

Had lunch here for the first time. The person at the counter was very patient and helpful in telling us about the menu. The prices were a bit high but the food was good. It was delivered to our table quickly and was delicious. Interior design was simple and clean. It was a bit loud. Good location and customer parking... More

My wife had been there about a year or two ago and wanted my daughter and I to try it. It was good. Horrible to find a place to park around there but that was the only draw back. Pizza was excellent (although no match for Shakespeare's in Columbia, MO in my opinion). House salad was great and the pizza... More

My family and I dine at Punch at least 3 times a month. The pizza is fantasic, and a welcome alternative to the typical pizzeria. Punch's Neapolitan-style pizza is thin, flavorful and seasoned to perfection. The service is fast and the atmosphere is casual and pleasant. Salads are fresh and sizable. I am partial to the Bruni, which is sausage,... More

We go to MSP several times a year. Every time includes a visit to Punch Pizza. We love the wood fired pizza and the fresh ingredients. The restaurant used to give a military discount. It no longer does, but we still visit~ just probably don't eat as much which is good. My first pizza was a little too charred on... More
