Trattoria Pulcinella is a nice family run business; we offer a lot of specials from our native Italy, like Wild boar prosciutto cured in the house, lamb, veal and fish's imported from Mediterranean sea. BUON APPETITO

The food is consistently excellent. The service is good. We were having a nice chat and enjoying our wine after our meal and the waiter didn't bother us. That was nice. It was very relaxing. The night we went, the restaurant was packed, which was nice. Still able to converse easily.

My friend and I decided to try this neighborhood spot. We were delighted. The food and ambiance were lovely--a touch of romance, yet relaxed. My clam linguine was delicious as was the chocolate mocha mousse! Our half bottle of Chianti was so good--we ordered more! Will definitely come back again!

An exceptional restaurant! Excellent cuisine: traditional Italian fare. Excellent service. This was my first visit, after reading about it on Open Table. It reminded me of the best of the Boston North End Italian restaurants and, decades ago when I was growing up in New York City , our special occasion Italian restaurant. Highly recommended.

I'm a regular here and this was another excellent meal. I really like this place,
but they are nearly a mile from Harvard Square and don;t get so many walk-ins.

Was a quaint place where one can enjoy a great meal out - You can take your time and enjoy each course - large wine selection and great taste of Italy. Would go back every time we are in the area.

My family's been going here for 22 years and it's been wonderful the entire time. The service is superb and the atmosphere is great. The food ranges from fantastic versions of American Italian food to extremely well done renditions of authentic Italian food.
