Maybe it's me but I'm just not into that burnt taste this pizza brings. I know it's the wood fire grill that does it. But just not my style. I enjoy it cheesy! Otherwise Place was nice, friendly staff, fresh ingredients.

We love the chop salad so much we drop by n have one almost weekly. We also love that they have spiced salami as a pizza topping. The only thing keeping us from giving them 5stars is the generally 2buck-chuck low quality wine. Very Un-Italian. (Thank goodness for the sociable cider!!)

My favorite are the Punch Salad and Prochiuto i Fungi! It is exactly an Italian Pizza place, the crust is thin, freshly made, melts in your mouth! It is usually crowded and the wait is a little long, but it's all worth it!

Love this place!!! the flavors are absolutely authentic. Don't get me wrong, I like American style pizza, but when I want real Italian I go to Punch.

Delicious pizza! The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive! The restaurant was spotlessly clean AND our order was ready in minutes! All of this from a socially responsible (they pay their employees a living [above minimum] wage) company!

We stayed in St. Paul and ended up eating here twice! We loved how you can add your own toppings, the crust is crisp and doughy. The setting is casual and the food is fantastic. If there is a long line don't be deterred as they are quick to serve and it's worth the short wait.

This is our go-to place for pizza. It's always very good, fresh ingredients. You can get wine and beer, which is nice. They can be very, very busy but don't let it scare you. Things can move pretty fast and it's worth the wait. Staff is efficient.

Don't be put off by the long lines. Punch will have your pizza to you in no time! I've heard some people don't like the "burnt" spots on the crust edge, but that's a characteristic of wood-fire oven baking. My youngest son loves Punch so much that he'll go out of his way on long drives just to pick up... More

Love this pizza! The wood fired crust is so good. We ordered 4 different pizzas and they were all unique and so yummy! Each pizza is made by hand and the salads are really fresh.

My #1 favorite pizza place any where. Best toppings and crust. Nice friendly people and atmosphere but I come here for the pie!!! The chopped salad is good too but try one of the names pies. All are good. There is only 1 size. Large for some but few would consider it small. 2 might be able to share 1... More
