It's hard for me to be impressed by Italian restaurants, but Pulcinella's is awesome. The menu is simple yet elegant. The food is not pretentious or overworked. Everything is always prepared well, and I've never ever had a bad meal here. The food is also inexpensive - two glasses of wine with entree, salad and bread is always under $20. The service can be slow sometimes, and I've been forgotten about a few times, but the food is good that I can't even consider that a negative. The restaurant is small, and when they are busy, sometimes service can suffer slightly. But the food is awesome, and it is a lot better than most of the Italian places listed here on Citysearch. I recommend the baked ziti, eggplant, or the gnocchi. Try their house dressing - it's amazing! I hear the pizza is really good, but never tried.
Pros: inexpensive menu but delicious, great ambiance, staff are nice, always attentive
Cons: when busy service suffer a little, tables can be small
