WOW! Exactly like I had in Italy! – This stuff is awesome! Just like the litttle roadside places in Italy! The center is never 100% "cooked", but that is what makes it so great; all of the respective flavors join there and it tastes amazing. I love how two pizza's are never the same, you want to just keep eating to see what flavors you get next. And the pizza chefs are quite entertaining also. Overall GREAT!

BAD PIZZA – I heard great reviews about this pizza joint. So I went one evening with my son and I was VERY disappointed. The crust was soggy and flavorless, the toppongs were few and far between, and the service was so-so considering the place was one-quarter full. I wll not return!

a little overrated – I was very excited to see a P. Neapolitan open in our area since I've seen all the good ratings on it, but I was disappointed when I went in to try it out. I'm not sure if my expectations were just too high at that point or if it just really isn't that great. I thought the pizza was okay. I liked the freshness of the basil on it, but the edge of the crust was burnt to a black crisp while the center was still a tiny bit doughy. And due to the high ceiling in the restaurant, it made for an extremely loud experience. Everything is all clustered into one small area from the line you wait in upon walking in the door, the order taking, the pizza making and baking and all the tables. Compared to other cities I've been in, I'm just not sure Minneapolis has one outstanding pizza place.

Always a good experience – Great Pizza. Highly recommend the call ahead seating. Parking is limited and so is seating, but you won't be dissapointed. Not tgood for groups...I wouldn't go with more than 6 people. Service is quick and the price is right.

This diminutive Highland Park pizzeria serves the most authentic pies in town. – In Short The tiny dining room is painted in cheery shades of orange and yellow and filled with rustic wood tables and chairs. Lively Italian posters decorate the walls. Punch attracts a diverse neighborhood crowd, from middle-aged couples enjoying dinner without the kids, to first-date types exchanging witty banter over wine. All the pies are fired in a wood oven, true to the Neapolitan style of pizza-making. Ingredients range from San Marzano tomatoes to creamy, fresh mozzarella.

Punch Pizza If you are in St. Paul, and you are looking for a great restaurant, look no further than Punch Pizza. I have tried many Pizza places in St. Paul, and this is definately the best. It is especially good for college students, because they give discounts if you ask them for a card. Located on Cleveland Avenue near the St. Kate's.

Great Food, Needs more space – My husband and I went to Punch on a Friday night with another couple. The food was, undeniably, excellent. The salad was crispy and oh-so-tasty! The pizza was perfect. although if you are not a salami/prosciutto fan, you don't have other meats to select from. There is however a great a anchovy pizza. If somebody forced me to give one negative comment about this place it would be that it's too small. There was quite a crowd on a Friday night and hardly any place to wait. We had made a reservation but the table was way too close to the front door. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this place!
