The taxi from our stay at Malmaison on the quayside took us through the city centre then down a random side street, and getting out we wondered what we had gotten ourselves in for, but Puccini's is a hidden gem in Newcastle. We had booked...More

Ordered a starter and main course, but should have just had the main - as portions are big! Good service and lots of choice, very reasonable prices too. Hubby had a spicy hot folded pizza and boy it was extremely spicy - beware! The only...More
