I have eaten at Punch Neapolitan Pizza in Highland Park a number of times over the last 10 years and the food has never disappointed me. The personal pizzas are their specialties however the salads I have had are excellent as well.
They cook their pizzas in an open brick stove/fireplace which is readily visible from the dining room. Everything is really fresh and made to order. I really like the margarita pizza cooked with fresh basil which you can pick your own toppings or choose one of their well thought out combinations.
This place is better for adults than kids since each order is made to order it can take a little longer. The dining room is small but that adds to the ambiance. In the summer they have a small outdoor patio that can be quite pleasant.
The cost is more than you will spend at most pizza places but the flavor is unmatched - California Pizza kitchen absolutely pales in comparison to Punch Neapolitan Pizza. I have never been to any of their other locations in the Twin Cities so I cannot report on the consistency from one location to another.
With love from Minnesota
