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

Just had an incredible meal at Punch Pizza in Highland. We started with antipasti which was so good - apparently they're the only one of the Punch chain to offer this antipasti. And the pizza - WOW! I kind of get annoyed when someone says they're from a particular place that is known for good (insert food here) and that... More

I've been coming to Punch since they were just 1 location. I've also had Neapolitan style pizza all over the U.S. as well as Italy. This place rivals Italy and in my opinion is one of the best in US. Try Visuvio or ToTo- yum! They make it simple and it's soooo good. Now that I live in Chicago, I... More

Having spent much of my life in what I consider the great Neopolitan thin-crust pizza corridor of the U.S. (New York to New Haven), I was surprised when my son raved about this chain in Minneapolis-St. Paul. They are casual, family-friendly spots with soft drinks plus wonderful beer and wine selections available. My son ordered a margarita pizza with prosciutto... More

Thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry you didnt enjoy the extra. I wanted to let you know if you are able to visit again a couple of things that may improve your experience with pizza ordering. First, some customers prefer their pizzas at punch a little drier, so we offer "punch dry" as an option. We add less... More

Visiting friends for a weekend and they introduced us to this neighborhood gem. It's casual come as you are. Thin crust creations with interesting ingredient combinations. Thoroughly enjoyed the Siciliana with prosciutto, artichoke and olives. Although, the Margherita was equally great. Tough call on which one to get next. Will definitely be back as often as possible.

Thank NavarreSand
