We celebrated two birthdays with a great dinner at Pulcinella’s. There were five adults and three children ages 8, 5 and 2. They have a great children’s menu. We had a Caesar Salad- best I’ve had on years. Their dressing is fantastic, pasta fragioli and...More

It was pretty underwhelming given the prices. I had the linguine alla pescatore with a merdure salad. Nothing was bad, just average and you don’t mind average if paying average prices.

It was our first visit so we tried several dishes to get a fair sampling of the menu. The Polenta Fritta was melt in your mouth delicious as was the Truffle Mayo that it's served with; likewise the Braciole. My husband ordered a pasta special...More
