Best Pizza Ever

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... read 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.

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!
