Although we live a fair distance away, we were drawn to this restaurant based on other reviews when we were in Virginia Beach for other reasons. My family loved the food and we would gladly come back to savor the delicious entrees. The bruschetta clasica is among the best in the area, which set the stage for dinner. I had... More

What more is there to say? The food is all hand crafted and made fresh to order. It has a real family atmosphere. The owner takes a lot of pride in what he serves and it's well deserved. This is a prime example of you get what you pay for.

I went in tonight to buy an eggplant Parm. sandwich and discovered the it cost so much I needed a co-signer to help pay for it. The total for one sandwich approximately 6 inches in length with nothing extra (no pasta) and it cost $15.48. I am surprised that there are so many reviews that say how great it is.... More

Had dinner here tonight with wife and some friends after seeing the review on Trip Advisor. Had been looking for a reasonably price family run "family" restaurant. Have found it! VERY small dining area, but good service and GREAT food. I had the meat lasagna and wife had the spinach. Both were wonderful. Will be back again and soon.

Owners are straight from Italy, and you just won't find more authentic Italian food. I had lasagna, which was large enough for two. Some how I ate it all. Great food, great management. Very nice small place to eat. Highly recommended!

I love, love, love this restaurant! My husband and I have eaten there many times and have been pleased with everything every time! We have also often stopped to pick up desert to take home. I typically do not order a desert, but after trying one at Pulcinella's I was hooked. All of the deserts are home made and sooooooooooo... More

Love teh fishies, and am very picky about my Calamari. Best ever, right here. (Second place goes to Catch 31.) The pasta is hand made, right here in the restaurant. It is a mom and pop place, and they always greet us with a smile. Everything is handmade, so a wonderful place to go for people with allergies, or those... More

Went there because we read the reviews that said it was authentic Italian food. They were correct! The delicious food was prepared in the Neopolitan style, very flavorful without the heavy garlic found at local Italian chains. Anyone writing a negative review of this food has no concept of what real Italian food tastes like. The small, family-owned business has... More
