“Best Place To Take The Kids For Italian Food”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

The food is great, the servers are always extremely friendly, and they have beer for the weary parent or patron unaccustomed to dining in a restaurant filled with kids. More about that later.
The pizza and pasta dishes are delicious. I love the Queen of Hearts calzone and the Campfire pizza. The bruschetta has never been consistent, but when it's good it's excellent. They also offer gluten free pizza and pasta (not something you find everywhere in town - and in most places "gluten free pizza" is code for something that is not really pizza) as well as beer (Redbridge, not bad). Gluten free has become more and more sought after these days, and Puccini's does an excellent job making it not only edible, but yummy.
If you don't like being around kids, I would avoid Puccini's on Friday nights and Saturdays. It's a very family friendly place full of crayons and kids' drawings and loud talking and, yes, the occasional crying kid. Overall, a great meal for a great price.

“Best Pizza Ever!”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

I ate at Puccini's Smiling Teeth on February 23, 2013. It was fantastic! They offer a ton of options, especially regarding pizza toppings. This was quite possibly the best pizza I have ever ate...

“Unique Pizzas, Great Local Option, better than the national chains!”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

We had Puccini's carry out for a large family gathering in Lexington on the recommendation of our local family members. I love trying new pizza places that I can't enjoy at home, so I was keen on the suggestion from the beginning. We the Humble Pie, Cactus Delectus, Bill (formerly known as Steve), and a few basic pizzas to satisfy the younger folks. The pizzas were ready on time for pick up and the order was without error, which is a bonus for a large order! The crust is a medium thickness, ingredients seemed fresh and tasty. I would definitely recommend to friends, if you are in the mood for pizza, and I would visit again. Hopefully next time, I can visit the restaurant.

“Good Eatin'”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

Fresh, crisp salad. Flavorful pizza. Nice atmosphere -- music not overpower! Great locations -- easier than some to get into on weekend night. Love the variety.
