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.

Service was good but I meal was incorrect and one was over choked. They staff quickly fixed this without any bother. The kids had a great time and the grownups had some nice wine. Dessert was yummy. Good for a last minute reservation for a large party, fun atmosphere. My husband though it was expensive for what we got.

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.

We chose this restaurant specifically for the gluten free options. We haven't been to Kensington for quite a while and were quite surprised how busy the area was. In that vein, we had a problem finding parking, we drive a large truck and had to park quite a ways away. The service was good our server had suggestions for us and they were good. The food was good, a little pricey but it probably is what that area pulls. The restaurant was very full which made it very loud, not much you can do about that. But it must be popular if it was full, so that is a good sign. All in all we had a good time.

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.
