December 2012 - Pricey, but great

I'm surprised this restaurant only has a 3-star rating average. It is definitely overpriced, but definitely worth it for a splurge. Arugula salad and soup were good, but the real winner was the osso bucco pasta. I honestly can't remember when I had Italian food this good. One of my new fave places for a splurge, despite the priciness.

amazing

Wow, all I have to say.. food was amazing I went with 4 of my friends and everything we got was perfect. The pizza is was great pasta was cooked to perfection I recommend the butternut squash ravioli. I have no complaints my waiter was hilarious and very attentive and had a great knowledge of wine. They had a lovely guitarist playing and singing songs all evening. The ambiance was absolutely spectacular. I will be back and will recommend this to anyone who enjoys fine foods and a beautiful atmosphere

Went for a birthday party, we didn't get the area we reserved. Our drink order took over 30 minutes to take and deliver. The waiter seemed "lost". When the reservation was made we were told we could get a particular item off the munch menu for dinner. The waiter argued with us to the point we had to ask to speak to the manager. The pasta was of perfect tenderness, but over priced for the serving size. Overall, a huge disappointment for all.

This place has been a part of our lives for the past few years. We have celebrated quite a few important and memorable events at this place. We absolutely love the service and food. Last night we had just the perfect table. I asked for a nice quiet table and they delivered. Our waiter was very professional and yet so comfortable. We never felt interrupted by his presence. Luigi was amazing as always. I think you really have to appreciate that he has a great voice and just the right amount of volume to allow you to enjoy his music and still have a conversation. He is a MUST anytime we dine there. We will definitely be back. Amazing gem right in our neighbourhood.

Our server forgot to put in one of our groups appetizer order so they had to remind him and then he lied and blamed the kitchen (we watched him go and punch in the order). Barely got an apology. He also continually forgot drinks and seemed “new”. Not the typical Customer service for this place.

Warm and comfortable atmosphere. Very polite staff. I went there for the Margherita pizza special. Although my pizza tasted great, it was not an outstanding Margherita pizza. It was more like a cheese pizza. The red wine was smooth. I would go back to try other menu items.

My friends and I have been to Pulcinella for dinner a few times and they never disappoint. We shared the appetizers and two of us had the seafood spaghetti and my other friend had the cioppino and we absolutely loved our meals. The only disappointing thing was that we had to rush out to go to the theatre and didn't get to enjoy the dessert. We'll make sure we don't have to skip out early next time.

Everything is amazing. As a celiac I would love if you offered a higher quality glutenfree pasta. Such as Nudl Artisan Pasta. This spot is great and love when live music is happening 💋
