the best pizza in the cities Punch is our favorite place to take visitors! The pizza is different than any other pizza you will ever have. It is on a crust similar to foccacia bread. They offer a wide variety of ingredients that are also different than just going to Pizza Hut. The price is very comparable to other restaurants. It is a small restaurant with a great feeling to it. If you go during a busy time call ahead or be prepared to wait.

best pizza in st paul! punch offers a comfortable decor in a cozy restaurant right off highland park. personal sized pizzas are very reasonably priced, and leave you lots of extra food (potentially split-able with 2 people, although i think they prefer you don't do that). service is fast, and they offer take-out. the gormet pizza combines unique tastes together. it's a casual environment and kid-friendly. long-lines because the pizza is great, but the line moves quickly! try their take out menu too! perfect first date place, as it's casual and fun!

Simply the best pizza around – There's no pizza place around that even comes close to Punch. The service is friendly - they still let me order a pizza that was removed from the menu years ago. The salads are great. I particularly like the Punch salad. For dessert, skip the tiramisu and go with the gelato or bread pudding.

Punch is the best! – I used to work at this restaurant and before I moved away from Mpls, I still ate there at least twice a week. The pizza is irresistable, the prices are good, service is fast. I honestly have not had a better pizza since trying punch and I have been to Italy several times. Now that I live in Miami, we need one of these!

Lacks the "punch" I was expecting... – I had heard only amazing things about Punch Pizza in Highland, so I have to admit I was disappointed when I found it to be only so-so. The salad we shared as an appetizer was good, although it seemed like something I could probably make at home with a bottle of vinagrette and some mixed greens. My calzone definitely left something to be desired - there was very little filling in it, so I was mostly left with a giant piece of plain folded over pizza crust. For this so-so food, I felt that the price was quite high. While the service was friendly and the place was cozy, the lack of value for the money will probably keep me from patronizing Punch again anytime soon.

Authentic Italian Pizza – In one word: amazing. I went to Italy four years ago and had pizza in Naples that was just as delicious and authentic as Punch's. What the restaurant lacks in comfort (hard wooden chairs and tiny, cramped tables), it makes up for in taste. Molten hot mozzarella, fresh San Marzano tomatoes, aromatic basil, and a slightly charred crust are the ingredients for the traditional Margherita pizza. After trying the pizza here, I guarentee that you'll be coming back for more!

Always Good – Consistently great pizza, well priced wine list to match the pizza, friendly fast service. Just be prepared for a wait on busy nights!

A "MUST" – I had never been to Punch until last week and I couldn't THINK about anything else until I went back yesterday to get some more! Their salads are amazingly tasty, then you get your pizza that is just explodes on the tongue. Really, you have got to try this place .. call ahead on weekends because it is busy!
