We frequent Pulcinella's and always have a great time. Whether it's with family or just my wife and I sitting @ the bar, you can count on good service, consistent menu items and great creativity from the chef. My wife's favorites are the linguine alla pescatore and the chicken parm. I'll either order one of the specials or a pizza.

First time visit with another couple who suggested this place for a weekday social. I was impressed with the ambiance, service and food quality and selection. The last time I ate at this location was over ten years ago when it was under a different owner and restaurant type. The place was renovated dramatically. There is an extensive menu and... More

Every single thing we ate here was delicious. I came here with my family (2 small kids) and everything was so good and freshly made. The portion sizes are huge so you might have to share things, but even the kids food was delicious. The risotto was so good I couldn't stop eating it even when I was stuffed to... More

The manager at the Homewood Suites said this was a solid place to go to dinner. Sadly it missed on several counts. Service, taste, cooks willingness to change starch, and prices. I was there on a Monday and should have known that the A team wasn't in attendance. This could have been much better but it wasn't. Not a repeat... More

We went to this restaurant in September and the the food was excellent. We returned this past weekend with another couple and it was as though we were in a completely different restaurant. The waiter seemed confused about the menu and continually had to refer to his notes. The food was tasty but entirely too salty. The wine selection is... More

I had lived in Warren Vt. since the 70's and gone to school in Burlington back in the early 90's so was pretty familiar with eating in Burlington. Since moving away in 2002, I come back once or twice a year to visit family and friends. My best friend and I generally have a favorite (it shall remain unnamed!) in... More

Excellent service with a traditional menu prepared with perhaps some flair and tradition mixed well in an Italian eatery.
