We went to Pulcinella on the recommendation of a friend. We had a great meal. The spaghetti puttanesca was the equal of any that I've eaten in San Francisco's North Beach. The owner/chef and his wife are down to earth people, and the children are adorable.

This restaurant is known by the locals for its pizza and other Italian specialities.
When we visited the restaurant at 20h00 it was empty apart from the Italian owner, his Mexican wife and their five children, all girls. Triplets and twins!!
We were served by the owner's wife and the eldest of the girls. A charming experience.
The layout of the restaurant is basic to be polite. Their car is parked in the entrance!
In any event we ordered pizza and enjoyed it.
So for a casual dining experience in a family setting this place was great.

Who knew we would enjoy one of the top 2 pizzas we have ever had the pleasure of eating in Morelia!! The gregarious chef is from Naples, and he knows his pizza. His charming wife from Mexico served us and three of their 5 daughters brought us the bill. We were utterly charmed by this hard working family. We shared a huge salad and a pizza that came in two sizes. All was delicious and it was so affordable. We couldn't get enough of the herb infused olive oil that we sprinkled on the pizza. Our only regret was this was our last meal in Morelia. Our friends that recommended the restaurant told us the pasta they ordered was delicious too. Go and support this family your tummy with be happy!!

I know the owners and the are so kind, the attention is very good. The restaurant is a house from downtown very good decorated with Italian stuff. And of course the food is delicious. You can enjoy it because the owner "Massimo" is from that country. If you visit Morelia Michoacán don't forget going to that place!!!

Very much enjoyed our pizza lunch at this simple and quaint family restaurant. The menu is extensive, and our pizza vegetariana was top notch...we do not hesitate to recommend.
