Best Pizza Ever

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.

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

Orders are taken at the counter so at rush times there will be a wait but everything is cooked to order. I should confess I am not usually a pizza fan, but Punch pizza is exceptional, beautiful thin crust made to order in a wood fired oven with good fresh ingredients. The Punch salad is not to be missed, comes... More

Punch is a one of a kind must visit if you're looking for an authentic taste of Italy. There is simply nothing like it and it never disappoints. If you're a pizza lover and you haven't sampled Punch, then this a must on your pizza bucket list.

I really enjoy the step up, order, and table delivered pizza here. Great design, with wood burning pizza oven in the wall. You really can't take it with you, it's pizza with sauciness!

I have heard how fantastic this pizza tastes so I was quite excited when my co-workers suggested the whole office go there for lunch. I found the menu hard to read from my view in line with a bunch of Italian names that mean nothing without more detail. I found a smaller menu the closer I came to the counter... More

Thanks for your feedback Kathyrn and I'm sorry you didnt enjoy the pizzas on your visit. I wanted to let you know if you visit again that we offer a style of cooking as an option you may enjoy better. It's called "Punch Dry" and just let the cashier know when ordering that you wanted it that way. We add... More

It is pizza. It was fine. It is hard to screw up pizza. Listening to my freinds who finally got me there it was the best pizza in the world. I don't get it. Not worth going out of your way for.

Thanks Bfree for your feedback and I'm sorry you didnt like the pizza. It is pretty easy to screw up our style of pizza cooking with our woodburning ovens and very hot temperatures (up to 1,000 degrees) and we regularly throw out about 5% of our pizzas we dont feel are up to standard. It may be that we didnt... More

These pizzas are a good size for one person. You feel satisfied but not stuffed. Taste and quality are excellent. Try the Punch salad also. Very tasty. Beers are good but wine is typical pizza joint wine (read OK but nothing special). Overall highly recommend.

Excellent. The Pizza Mimi is so fresh and delicious. I could eat this everyday. The employees are friendly and prompt. I wish there were more locations.

We have a tradition in our family of coming in for takeout (the chop salad is our favorite) and ordering wine to sip on while we wait. The pizza is the closest thing around to pizza from Italy. And if u order a salad they give u a side of fresh cooked bread. We suggest slathering it in olive oil... More
