This is a great restaurant. The food is well prepared, staff is very knowledgeable, and portions are just right. The atmosphere is very serene and the restaurant is not noisy.

Staying at nearby Best Western Hotel we were told of Puleo’s Grille a leisurely five minutes stroll away. Busy, buzzy place with efficient and helpful staff. Menu very varied, Italian, Steaks, Fish and Chefs specials. Excellent food and sensibly priced, a good choice and recommendation.

As with any restaurant, i'd call ahead with a large party, but they did have tables they could move around to accommodate 10 people.
