Just went last evening for dinner with my husband for the first time. The food was amazing. The prices are very high. My husband ordered the spaghetti pasta for 15$ plus extra for Meatballs and the portion was extremely small. Don't get me wrong he said it was delicious but for the price we paid, he should have gotten more.... More

I've had a lot of different pizzas, this was just missing something. The pizza was very thing, and the toppings were nice, but the taste was off. Will need to try it again, the beer was cold and the waitress was amazing.

This place serves the best wood oven pizza in Maryland. If you've been to Italy before, you'll find Puccini's no different from an average restaurant in Italy. The pizzas are extremely delicious. The service could be a little faster since our party waited for our order of 9 pizzas for about 50 minutes but I understand they were pretty busy... More

Once or twice a year we have lunch at Puccini's. They have very good Onion Soup and Pizza which we had. I believe they make their own desserts as well. All of which are very good. If you are driving on Interstate 68 through Cumberland it's a good place to stop and eat. It off of exit 46. Enjoy!

I have eaten here twice and will go back for sure. The brick oven pizzas are delicious and come in personal and 12" size. We haven't tried that many things on the menu yet, but the fish and chips were also great - reminded me of my vacation to Scotland. This old building has a lot of charm. The staff... More

The pizza at Puccini is consistently tasty based on our visits recently. We also enjoyed the house salad complement to 3 different pizzas over the course of 4 days in Cumberland, MD. The lower level of the restaurant is a Rathskeller type setup where all of the pizzas are made for the different restaurant levels and rooms. There is a... More

Good food and service in an historic building. Tastefully decorated for the holidays, the restaurant has several rooms making it nice for groups or large parties. Treated my family to drinks and dinner here. Reasonably priced good wood-fired pizzas. But the cream of crab soup is what I'd come back for time and time again.

I've always wanted to stop here for dinner, and finally had the opportunity on the way home from a business trip in Washington, DC. It's a charming atmosphere, like you've gone into a classic older home. Beautiful woodwork and only a few tables in each room. We stopped for the brick oven pizza, but they have many other items on... More

We've had a vast amount of pizzas, and theirs is great. If you have a chance to get the pizza, don't miss it.
