City Pages' Description

A spirit of smoke dwells in the paper-crisp crust and tender, springy heat of every Punch pizza, which arrives from the wood-fired brick oven like a greeting from an artisan age during which every morsel of fresh mozzarella was as delicate as springtime, every imported San Marzano tomato was as big as summer, and zesty toppings like cayenne salami and picholine olives set the sky on fire. But it's not just the pizza. The salads are good, and the wine list is a moderately priced, pizza-friendly dream come true. So join us in a citywide howl to the heavens: "Why doesn't my block have a pizza joint this good?" Dinner.

    The first Punch Pizza in St. Paul is the only one I have really enjoyed so far.

    I went to the Grand Ave. location on a Friday evening...it was packed but everything moved very quickly. The pizza is good, but it wasn't earth moving. Prices are good.

    Find the hidden meow cat.

    Try the Toto. With a light touch of cheese, peppery arugula, and the bite of garlic and red pepper, this pie is all business.

    My favorite Punch location. This is the only one in the area where you get table service. Check it out! (So good!)

  • Joe R. on 08/06/09

    order your pizzas "wet" or "neopolitain style". it's fantastic - a little more olive oil and tomatoes.
