We were very disappointed in this tiny shopping center restaurant. Had to ask about regular spaghetti, which was NOT on the menu. It seems the menu was steering you to higher priced fancier Italian dishes. Waitress misquoted the price and returned to tell us it...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.
