Food was amazing and our server was sweet. We found the food to be simple but delicious, we liked the 3 course lunch, it was very filling! Only complaint was that we found a small strip of metal in the food, it was obviously an accident however so we simply put it aside.
We had a fun experience at Pucinella. Very good service and excellent pasta.
My Italian friend visiting from Milan was craving ‘authentic’ Italian pizza…she was not disappointed & was so happy to finally have a pizza like she was used to!
Wonderful food and great service, friendly server but not too hovering. food was excellent and serving sizes were generous. thanks for a great dinner!
The food was excellent, the service was reasonable, the noise level was too high. A lot of noise came from the kitchen.
Good food. Very friendly service. Always a good experience.
The food was amazing and service was good. It was really loud though and with servers wearing masks it was a bit difficult to hear.
We've been coming for years. It's always great. Thank you!
This is a great restaurant. I enjoy their salads, pizza, and wine.
The bruschetta was the best I’ve ever had - mostly because of the high quality olive oil which was absolutely incredible. The classic margherita pizza was also great! We got a reasonably priced red wine that was quite tasty - would definitely recommend!
Everything was fantastic as usual! One of our favourite places in the city.
The food is amazing, the service is delightful. This was my second visit and it lived up to my memory from 2019.
Honestly the food was overpriced in my opinion. It didn’t feel like an Italian restaurant decor wise. I probably wouldn’t go again.
Anniversary lunch outside on a beautiful fall
Day , was perfect! Staff and food are both terrific one of our favourite places for sure !
Expertly prepared premium ingredients always make these pizzas shine. Combine this with exceptional and friendly service and you get Pulcinella. By far, the best authentic pizza in Calgary. The recent addition of a small take-away Italian market further enhances this gem.
Food and service were excellent. We enjoyed our evening out.
The food was overly salted and cold. Drinks stood empty for most of the time. I understand we had a later dinner, we there is no reason to have been given subpar service. And this is coming from someone who worked in the restaurant service industry for over ten years.
I don’t recommend this place. The food and service were poor. Nothing special. The place is noise. Overall speaking, not even average.
Mature and seasoned waiter made the experience friendly and efficient. Can’t remember his name but he made the experience exactly what it needed to be - strictly eat good pizza and get out. My negroni was on point and the crudo pizza was some of the best pizza I’ve had in my life.
Patio was extremely uneven. Service was good but when we ordered a bottle of wine we were brought something different as the server assumed that would be OK. When we said no, she came back with the correct bottle. No big deal, just a little odd.
As always, incredible food and impeccable service. We picked Pulcinella for our lovely guest who has never had authentic Italian pizza - she was very impressed and loved the food and overall experience. Thank you!
Incredible food as always! However, it was very obvious that the restaurant was far too busy for the amount of staff on. It was very clear that the staff were stressed out beyond belief. Perhaps seating fewer people would elevate the service. We wanted to order more drinks and probably dessert but our server (to no fault of her own) was unable to come to our table beyond the bare minimum. Pulcinella is one of Calgary's gems and I know it has more potential than what I experienced on Saturday night.
As always the food is amazing, but this time the service was very underwhelming. Took forever to get anything, coffees took 20+ mins, food took forever to order, paying the bill took 15 mins. Found this very surprising as we were one of only two tables inside the restaurant that afternoon and it looked like the other table was having the same experience. Disappointing and hoping this was just a one off situation.
Our server would not listen to our requests and was outright yelling over us every time we spoke. Also I had requested a cake cut fee but nothing was communicated from host-server even though I came earlier with the cake and explained that I wanted that done. Our server didn’t even know we had a cake. Couldn’t find the server come cake time so I had to walk around to find him. Server did not allow us to combine the bills we needed combined and was so rude about it as well. he kept interrupting us and refused to listen to how we wanted our billing set up, he just assumed. I was shocked. I felt extremely frustrated and unheard. He was not nice at all.
Great value for the food. Friendly staff and good location
Service extremely slow and food was not good. Waitress was nice though.
Caesar salad was too salty and mushrooms cream was not a cream
Our favorite place for the last 7 years! Always coming back there and will always recommend!
Delicious lunch. Attentive service. Lovely afternoon in the patio.
My husband and I have always enjoyed eating at Pulcinella. We were happy to be back after the covid hiatus. We were not disappointed.
We were greeted warmly at the door and seated at our favourite table. Our Verdure Grigliate and Capricciosa Pizzas tasted as delicious as we remembered. The service was excellent and friendly throughout.
Thank you again Pulcinella staff for a great evening out. Can’t wait to go back.
Our server was great, very friendly. The food was subpar, the Stagioni pizza was
very strange (separated into quadrants) Only one of the quadrants had cheese and the rest were tomato sauce with bland toppings. You need a better class of dough
to make something like this work. I'd enjoyed the pizza here in the past but this was a fail.
Love these guys. Enjoyed the additional benefit of the outdoor patio on an outstanding evening!
Ordered bread to have with the wine before dinner but it came after the food arrived. This is second time there and again what is in wine list is it available- update the list! It’s just a piece of paper.
Was very disappointed with service and food.
All great, one song very loud/annoying but server was right -it was just one song.
Server and food were excellent.
Great food and exceptional service, as usual.
Friendly service, substantial wine selection, delicious pizza, great balcony patio,highly recommend!
Service was excellent and the food was very well prepared. The food portions were excellent and the quality of the food was outstanding. A very good wine list for a small place.
This is my second visit this summer. The food and service have been very good. Love being able to sit outside. Everyone is very friendly. Would highly recommend.
Amazing!!! The best ZA we’ve had in Calgary! Thumbs up from some serious pizza lovers visiting from Ontario:)
