We went to Pulcinella on the recommendation of a friend. We had a great meal. The spaghetti puttanesca was the equal of any that I've eaten in San Francisco's North Beach. The owner/chef and his wife are down to earth people, and the children are adorable.

This restaurant is known by the locals for its pizza and other Italian specialities. When we visited the restaurant at 20h00 it was empty apart from the Italian owner, his Mexican wife and their five children, all girls. Triplets and twins!! We were served by the owner's wife and the eldest of the girls. A charming experience. The layout of... More

Who knew we would enjoy one of the top 2 pizzas we have ever had the pleasure of eating in Morelia!! The gregarious chef is from Naples, and he knows his pizza. His charming wife from Mexico served us and three of their 5 daughters brought us the bill. We were utterly charmed by this hard working family. We shared... More

I know the owners and the are so kind, the attention is very good. The restaurant is a house from downtown very good decorated with Italian stuff. And of course the food is delicious. You can enjoy it because the owner "Massimo" is from that country. If you visit Morelia Michoacán don't forget going to that place!!!

Let me start off by saying that I am not a thin crust pizza fan, however this is one of the best thin crust pizzas of my life! The crust melted in your mouth. The sauce was flavorful and the homemade sausage and pepperoni were muy rico. I stopped earlier to check out the menu and met the co-owner (wife).... More

I live in New York City and New England (famous for Italian pizza), and this is one of the best pizzas I've ever had. The lemonade was all natural, and the salads looked fantastic, even though we didn't have room to try them. Big regret. The atmosphere is also great; homy, charming, and peaceful. The owners are so warm and... More
