We've had a vast amount of pizzas, and theirs is great. If you have a chance to get the pizza, don't miss it.

Not a bad place to eat but the restaurant could strive for better. We had a make your own pizza and arugula salad. The arugula (rocket) was fresh but didn't have much of an arugula taste. There was too much cheese on the pizza; could have been half of what was there. Most unfortunately the server apparently left the pizza... More

I had eaten here before but brought my wife this time. Being fall hot apple cider was on the menu and I quickly drank two mugs full. Brought back great memories of the past. The crab dip was good and the pizza was great. Nice place to stop on the way to Baltimore. Quaint little restaurant well worth the stop.

Love the country-inn atmosphere of Puccini's as well as their mix of dishes from the traditional to the imaginative. Servers are very attentive and always willing to convey special requests to the chef (who is usually very accommodating). Prices are very reasonable. Some may find the floor a little crowded, and on weekends they do get busy (reservations recommended). I... More

I have passed by this place for year and just never made the time to stop. Read the reviews, looked and the website - all sounded inviting. One day a month back, right at dinner time BAM, we stopped. Hands down THE BEST wood fired oven pizza we have ever had. The sauce had a great fresh tomatoes flavor and... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor we stopped here on our scenic way to Pittsburgh. It's right off the I68 highway-- in fact, it has a pretty terrace and would be a great place to sit for a meal. The historic details inside of the 19th century building are wonderful and well-preserved. Classic Italian food well-made and good pizza. The portions were... More

Tried this place on our first night in town and it was excellent. The pizza was perfect, plenty of cheese, tasted great. My 7yr old loved the friendly staff.

I selected this restaurant because it was .2 miles from our hotel and had very good reviews. I enjoyed the historic location and the interior was lovely. If you love old wood and historical significance then this is your joint. We got cheesy garlic breadsticks, a burger, shrimp scampi, and kids fettuccini alfredo. The breadsticks were wood fired like the... More

We recently stopped here because of tripadvisor recommendation and we weren't disappointed. Party of 4 and we all had various individual sized pizzas which all enjoyed. And the price was reasonable. The added surprise was the history of the building itself which none of us were aware of before the dinner.

Went here on recommendation of co-workers. Ordered individual pizza, which was good, and a small house salad, with the homemade Italian dressing. ( fantastic)
