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.

Anniversary dinner on Valentine’s Day. Service was great, food was excellent. Portion sizes were big and we ended up taking a lot home. Great restaurant - you never go wrong here

Well, it was disappointing for the price point. Food was slow to arrive, when it did it was almost cold and flavorless. There was no ability to customize any menu items and at 20+ dollars for appies that is disappointing. They argued that we did not order a particular item-the coffee was luke warm - like they made it for another patron, it was returned and then given to me. The service was slow, no non swine options for anyone with food allergies and no substitutions - really really disappointed given the price and flavor of the food. Most of it was inedible

We love Pulcinella, not far from where we live, we're at the top of 10th St, a good walk
for us in summer, walk up 10th St., walk off some of our hearty food. This time around
we were treating some visitors and they loved it and we did too. I almost always get the arugula
salad and calamari and call it lunch or dinner -- greens and protein, just like home!
This time our food took a bit longer to get to us than usual, but that's what happens sometimes.
Not a big deal, good wine and beer while waiting, lots of good conversation, then lots of good food arrived!
Thank you Pulcinella, we'll be back, as always.

Met with a friend and we enjoyed some pizzas. We were both impressed, and I will be back to sample from other parts of the menu.
