    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.

    Our server, Michael was amazing. Very friendly and treated our 3 year old daughter like a princess. The food was delicious and was quick to our table after ordering. We look forward to visiting again soon.

    Well that was a cluster*&^I On Sept 8 I made a reservation online via YP Dine for 6 people at 7 pm on Oct 27 to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We had been to Pulicinella during Winterlicious and thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. On Sat Oct 27 I called in the AM and left a voice mail to confirm. I received a phone call a couple of hours later confirming my confirmation. We arrived at 7, said we had reservations for 6 under Greg H. “No sorry we do not have you.” I said “ but you called me earlier to confirm.” After a few minutes of back and forth we were seated upstairs and we waited for the other 2 couples. After 10 minutes we got a group Messenger text that one couple’s ETA was 715-720. The 3rd couple responded “OK, we are already here, sitting DOWNSTAIRS”. They had mentioned MY name when they arrived at 645 and had been taken DOWNSTAIRS; and yet when we arrived at 7 MY name was no longer on the reservation list and we were seated UPSTAIRS. It went downhill from there. Our server took our wine and appetizer order but did not take our entrée order until she had cleared our appitizer plates which meant a lengthy wait until the entrees appeared. We had to repeatedly request more water. The music from the speaker was so loud we could not hear ourselves and we asked for it to be turned down.Our 3 bills were totally screwed up and we ended up exchanging cash between us to just get out of there. Not one word of apology or action to make good from the manager. Very unprofessional and poor customer service. They are obviously a popular spot as they USED to be with us. Fortunately there are many more places in Etobicoke that have food that is just as good or better and know how to provide excellent customer service. Note that the YP system provided “Mississauga” as the city when Pulcinelle is in Etobicoke / Toronto/

    Was a birthday celebration for a friend. Restaurant recommended by one who had gone via Winterlicious. Not busy at lunch that day but service and food very good. We (4 people) all enjoyed the special wine price - Tues-Thursday! We also all enjoyed finding out re Tuesday night Jazz - and plan to attend, especially with Fall/Winter nights coming on. I have already advised siblings of this and hope they will also attend. We all fully enjoyed our lunch (and took home doggy-bags)!

    This restaurant is ideally located in the Longbranch area of South Etobicoke. The server was fantastic, kind and knowledgeable. Wednesday, $1 oz was the "cherry on the cake" for celebrating my sister's birthday here. The food sadly was underwhelming.

    It was my first time here but my friend had been several times. It is classic Italian fare beautifully executed with the freshest ingredients and is the next best thing to dining in Italy. I will recommend it to others and look forward to my next visit.

    Was first time visit to the restaurant. The atmosphere was wonderful, elegant but casual, very welcoming. The service was great, the server was very attentive and had wonderful knowledge of the menu and daily specials. The food was delicious. The portions were spot on, not too much but not to little, perfect value for the money. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a wonderful evening out and delicious Italian cuisine.

    Decided to try the summerlicious menu. Caesar salald dressing was heavy on the garlic but had a sweetness that was pleasing to the palate. Sauce for the trout was a little tart for my liking. Dessert was suppose to be a Sponge cake with marscopone cream. It was more of a dense cake.
