Puccini's is always good for nice regional chain italian that is a definite step above some better known chains but still very affordable with reliable service and performance. I absolutely love their Baked Roman Holiday (although having it on the low-carb menu implying it might be healthy is the biggest joke to anyone who tastes it). However, I also enjoy their calzones, pizzas and pesto pasta. Finally, their homemade dressings really make their salads stand out and a nice add to your meal.

I ordered the lemon piccata dinner and it was VERY lemony, yet somehow bland.

I just want to say that, for family outings and an affordable dining experience, Puccini's has been my go to restaurant for the last 15 years. The Humble Pie is always superb and the pasta is on point. That being said... Puccini's, what gives? Your current wait staff is possibly the worst I've ever seen it been in these last 15 years. I recently dined in as a table of two, and didn't see a refill for the entire hour and a half. Not for lack of asking, just seemed to be carelessness on the server's part, to the point of the server appearing annoyed at our continuous requests for refills (which came with the check, and not in the requested to-go cups once we were ready to leave...) We also ordered an extra basket of bread with our meals. Unfortunately, that basket didn't arrive until after we had finished eating, again after repeated requests. I can understand slow service during a rush; I myself have worked as a server. But the section we were dining in had 3 empty tables. And the restaurant seemed well staffed that night, so not really any excuse for shoddy service. Finally, we had a to-go order placed that was prepared incorrectly (a shrimp pasta dish... with no shrimp?). Not too big a deal because we weren't in any rush, but again it seemed like carelessness on the part of the server (or the kitchen staff, but all the other food was on point). The worst part isn't even the fact that there were slip-ups, I know that being a server can be stressful, it happens. But despite how poor the service was, we received no apology or understanding from our server. Being met with disjointed apathy and an annoyed attitude, simply because we were politely requesting what we had already ordered, is not acceptable. And to top it off, at the end of it all, the table was swarmed by 1 or 2 other wait staff who were now suddenly available to take all our dirty dishes, without so much as asking if we were finished, or "how was the food?". This gave us the feeling that they cared more about shuffling us out the door than providing good service. Now, if this had been my first negative experience with this sort of attitude at Puccini's in the past few months, I would've let it go. But this has been a repeat experience the last 3 or 4 times I've gone (and not just as a party of 2, but with birthday functions, parties of 6 or more, etc). If it was any other restaurant I probably wouldn't care, but Puccini's has always been one of my top picks. Puccini's deserves 5 stars for the food, I will give them that any day of the week. But the family atmosphere I used to love that truly made Puccini's an excellent dining experience, seems to have been replaced by a bunch of apathetic busy-bodies who really don't take pride in their work, or making sure their customers are happy. All in all, I'm just hoping that my next visit will live up to the Puccini's "Smiling Teeth" experience.

Went here for the first time for lunch today. Food was really good. My husband and I both ordered pasta dishes that we both enjoyed. We loved the homemade ranch dressing for our salad and that the salad had decent lettuce and toppings (not just iceburg lettuce with a few croutons). And the bread that came with the meal was my favorite..yum! I am only giving 4 stars as we thought it was cold in the restaurant. My husband and I both had to wear our coats the whole time we were eating. My hands and nose were icy cold. I wished I had a blanket to wrap around my legs. We will be back, as I want to try the pizza. Hopefully the heat will be turned up a little warmer next time.

Hi Carla! We are so happy you enjoyed your lunch--and so sorry you were cold! We were caught off guard by the cold snap and turned the heat up later than we should have. We are terribly sorry it affected your lunch!

Service was good. The margarita pizza was not that good because it did not have sauce. The cheesecake was not good.
