Pulcinellas has a special wine tasting event the second Tuesday of the month so we decided to give it a try. The food was perfectly prepared for each course of wine. I hope they add the "white and green" fettuccine with peas and pancetta to...More

Great friendly service, delicious food, homemade Caesar salad dressing with anchovies is outstanding. Homemade croutons. Best dipping sauce for bread I have had in a long time.

Lunch from Pulcinella. In house, home made mozzarella and pizza dough. Fresh ingredients make all the difference. Best pizza I've had in years. You've got to try this place.

Home made pasta, desert and sauces. Nice little locally owned restaurant in strip mall casual dinner with authentic food. Nice hidden gem.
