The food was great. Everyone needs to be made aware though. The bill came and I handed the waitress my credit card. When she returned there was an additional 4% charge added for non cash payment. No where on the menu or did the waitress tell me that there was a surcharge for credit cards. I was not happy that I was not made aware of this. I would have paid cash.

This place is a keeper! We will be back. The appetizers, bruschetta and grilled vegetables were incredible and we loved the meatballs so much that we put in a second order. Our homemade ravioli were light and melt in your mouth good as well as the gnocchi and Tagliatelle! Our son had a steak cooked to perfection with fries. Not a bite left of anything! We will return to Pulia!

A pizza joint trying to be an Italian restaurant. Rocky tables while the owner loudly repeats call-in pick up order over the overly loud boom box. We had to ask the staff to lower the volume several times so we can have a conversation, only to have the volume turned up again each time. The food was very disappointing also. We went here because it was the only available choice for a last minute reservation. Now we now why. If you want pizza, this may be your place. Although. we didn't try the pizza.

The owners / chefs were the. MOST AMAZING people I have met so far. Such friendly and fantastic service, such great food - fresh and succulent simultaneously!!! A big shout out to Pulia, one of the best Italian restaurant I have dined in, in the East Coast and the BEST in Atlantic City. Keep up the great work folks.

Had a fabulous dinner with friends the other night. Veal Milanese was outstanding, along with the pizza, salads, and arancini. They changed their menu from the last time I visited and there is a much wider selection. Pasta looked fantastic too. Looking forward to going back and trying more on the menu.

Food and service were excellent. The only problem that we had was birthday party at another table. They hired a singer for the party held in the only room in the restaurant. She was extremely loud. I have hearing issues and it didn’t help my ear problems. She was a good singer but I wished she realized it was a small room and her amp should’ve been much lower. I hope future entertainers would tone down the sound.

We have been to Pulia many times and have always had a good experience. However, our latest visit was just average. Not sure why they were out of synch but getting food out was a challenge. Nonetheless, we will come back since past experiences have always been very good.

We were in town for business. And look this up on open table. The place was cute. I think the pricing it was OK. I had the gnocchi which it was a smaller portion but adequate and it tasted very good. I love the sauce. We did have the fried calamari appetizer and I think compared to other restaurants the portion was quite small. .
My date wanted the veal Parm special but luckily the waitress told us it was $50 which seemed a bit outrageous. So he got the chicken Parm instead. Our food took quite a while but we were OK with that and the waitress was very friendly. However the chicken Parm came out completely in edible it was completely burnt and a very tiny portion which we had to send back. We don’t really understand how the chef could’ve missed that it was so burnt it could not be cut with a knife. When he remade it the portion was larger and it was very tasty

We ordered pre-fix meal. I had the baked eggplant, salad with pears, and homemade pasta with mushrooms. It was amazing and tasted like I was back in Italy. My husband got a salad caprese, calamari salad and grilled bronzino fish. The calamari and branzino was fantastic, cooked perfectly.
The staff was very friendly and attentive. Can’t wait to go back!

I didn't like the menu at all. It wasn't enough food for the money. The food was bland. Just not a good experience. They did change their menu for valentine's day. So maybe it is better on a regular day

The place was great and the main hostess and waiter were awesome but the chef thought it was ok to walk around the dining room and deliver food and talk to customers without a mask on. Not even an attempt, he didn’t even have one on his neck or chin. I would come back for carry out! Pizza was great. But that’s a big issue and needs to be fixed

We went to Pulia on Christmas Eve and everything was perfect. The best pasta I’ve had in a long time, cooked perfectly al dente. The entire staff was amazing and both chef and owner came around a couple times to make sure everything was Ok. One of the best dining experiences I’ve had ever. Highly recommended.

The food was really delicious, but to be honest- it felt like enough precautions were not being taken for Covid-19. We sat outside and there was a musician going over to tables singing with a guitar and no mask. He was respectful when we said we did not want to be serenaded, but it drew into question how seriously the restaurant is taking Covid-19.

Food was average and service was awful. Took at least a 1/2 hour to take our order when the restaurant was not busy. When food came out, it was brought out of order. Server admitted to her mistake. Chicken was dry and over cooked. But appetizer and dessert were good. Will not be back.

No hostess to greet you on arrival. Stood in the doorway for 20 minutes before anyone would stop to help us. We had a reservation for 7pm outside and nothing was available outside so we agreed to sit inside. Took 15 minutes for someone to get us water and open our wine. Took over an hour to receive any food. Our appetizer never came out. We informed our server it never came out when he brought our entrees out after an hour and a half of sitting down with no food and told him we no longer wanted it. He brought it anyway and then charged us for it. Branzino special was gross. It was covered in marinara sauce and the fish was not de-boned. We will never be back. Don’t waste your time.
