Service seems to vary. One time great food & service . Next time, food cold, forgot bread. Speghitti tasted like speghitti O's. Convienant to interstate 68. Pizza is awesome always.

We did not make reservations and on a Friday evening, that was not a good decision. We did get in , a table off to one side, no real view and kind of pricey. Service was a little better than average. Seemed popular with clientele.

very, very yummy pizzas, but everything else on the menu is mediocre. the worst part of the restaurant, though, is very very shotty service. I've never had a solid, decent service experience.

Great wood oven pizza - ate on the outside patio. Great service, great prices. My wife loved the Caprese Salad with the Balsamic reduction.

We have passed Puccini Restaurant dozens of time while traveling on I-68, and we finally stopped in to try the wood oven pizza. It was a worthwhile stop, the pizza was as advertised - a very good pizza. The atmosphere was enjoyable many different dining rooms with original wood paneling. The wait staff was friendly and helpful.

Met some friends here so we had a table of 8, but service was great and personal. Friends ordered three kinds of pizzas and loved them. I got a steak and it was done just right. There are three rooms and outdoor seating and a plus is it's close to interstate exchanges for the tri-state area.

Got seated outside. The setup was very strange and there was no view of anything anyone wanted to see. The wait staff was hard to locate because they had to go in and out the front door of this old house. Our pizza unlike the picture looked like a tortilla shell. It was very thin and the toppings bleed through... More

We barely set foot INSIDE the restaurant so I can't comment there. We ate outside - towards the front - under the porch because we thought it might rain. The service was really, really good and the food was also quite good and a good value for the money. My husband used the restroom and he said they were new... More
