To me pizza is pizza and just about anything will do fine but Punch is something exceptional. We like that the Bruni and Toscana and the varied and all-good starters. Service in Highland it quick and efficient and we like to sit outside when the weather permits. Try the hot artichoke and Parmesan appetizer!

This is the original Punch location and still the best. Traditional wood fired pizzas that allow for cooking your pizza at 800 degrees in 90 seconds. The pizza chefs go through constant training and reviews to maintain their skills. Excellent ingredients, flavorful meats, and a cozy atmosphere. Always busy during the dinner hour. Expect to wait, but it is well... More

What I mean is it does pack a punch if you like stuff right off the fire. Thin crust pizza with decent toppings, expect a near black bottom.

Their pizza is honestly the best pizza you will ever have in your life. If you ever wanted to know what authentic pizza tastes like, go to Punch. This location is slightly more upscale than the other ones that I have heard of. There are also cat statues in random places around the ceiling - so don't get scared by... More

Punch Pizza has outstanding, authentic Neapolitan pizza that is just like in Naples! Like in Italy, each pizza serves one person. The staff was very polite, the restaurant was nice, and our food was served very quickly. My family and I will definitely be coming back!

Went here whilst visiting these parts on business and this was recommended to me back in the early summer. I have been to Italy on a number of occasions and have to say in the majority of occasions I have been very underwhelmed by "Italian" culinary offerings to the extent you often find a lot better "Italian" outside of Italy....

Love this spot for lunch or dinner; always great for the 10 years I've been dining here. A friend and I share a carafe of red, the punch salad, and order our own pizza (margherita extra for me). So good!

Recently returned to Punch and very disappointed. Arrived at 5:30 on a week night. Extremely noisy inside. We ordered 3 different pizzas. They tasted ok but not great. Very disappointed.

After many years of enjoying Pizza in Punch, regularly, every week, I figured it is about time to put it in writing how great this pizza is! First of all, it is real Italian pizza. Simply put, this is how pizza should be: light, tasty, not overloaded with toppings or spices. If you hold pizza with your hands you will... More
