  • I had been to Trattoria Pulcinella
    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 2/14/2009
    I had been to Trattoria Pulcinella many years ago, and remembered it fondly. We made a 7 pm reservation for Valentine's Day. When we arrived there were two couple waiting ahead of us and two who arrived just after us, all with 7 pm reservations, but no tables avaialable. No one from the restaurant came over to the entry area to great new arrivals or to check in. Then as tables freed up, they said, "Who's next?" and sat that party. We were seated just before 7:30. We received menus promptly, but not water or bread. The service was slow all night. All the food we ordered was bland and unremarkable. At the end we wanted to pay with our debit card by were told they could only take credit. All in all not a great dining experience.

    the food was fantastic and service friendly, but the tables were placed so close together for Valentine's day that we had no choice but to be a part of our neighbor's conversations- hardly a romantic Valentine's event. We will go back, but on a quiet week night!

    The food was above average. The seating is very crowded which makes it very hard to hear. The need more space or fewer tables.

    I felt it was a fine restaurant and the quality of the food was fine, but the quantity of the food for the prices they charged was underwhelming.

    Book early for busy nights -- they seem to overbook and get backed up in their reservations, so you'll end up waiting even if you reserved ahead of time. Don't ask for parmesan on seafood dishes -- they will refuse to give you any. All in all good food though, and a nice looking spot. Would go again.
