Executive Chef Domenic Tudda spent his childhood years learning of Italian cuisine while his family owned and operated Stromboli's restaurant in Calgary. He furthered his education by undergoing extensive culinary training in Italy and has been able to continue his parent's legacy of bringing unique and incredibly authentic Italian dining to Calgarians. One of the most revered of these ventures is Ristorante Pulcinella, where Domenic first earned distinction when his international training crossed borders and entered Calgary in the spring of 2006. One of the few APN (Associazione Pizzaioli Napolitani) certified pizzerias in the world, Domenic has been able to showcase his culinary skills, incredible wine knowledge, and passion for Italian cuisine to provide Calgary with a truly artistic, original and delicious experience not soon to be forgotten. Certainly not your classical North American pizza, it's definitely different, but definitely delicious.

Awesome experience. Lively, happy, great food, great service and exciting to see the activity in the kitchen. Warm and hearty, big portions. Nutella pizza is a must to end the meal! The staff all smiled and added to a very happy experience. Many happy returns, for sure.

We booked Pulcinella for New Years Eve dinner. We had a very nice booth on the second floor and the service was excellent. We had a couple of bottles of prosecco and bruschetta to start and then pizza, gnocchi and tortellini for our main courses. We finished off the meal with the tiramisu. Dinner was good although not excellent. The tiramisu was amazing! The atmosphere of the restaurant is lovely.

My experience here was so bland that I would not recommend it to anyone and will not return myself. The soggy pizza that we had to cut ourselves and the tasteless carbonara were such a huge disappointment.

Our group enjoyed the evening but unfortunately the food service was a bit off this night. All meals except one were delivered and we had to flag down a waiter to inform them. The mix up was eventually corrected. We enjoyed the healthy portions and extensive wine list.

Our table was waiting when we arrived and we had drinks in no time! The server was great and the food very tasty. Loved the meatball appy and calamari was the best! Too bad we had that table right by the kitchen on the way to the restroom or would have been a 5 YES to going back soon :)
