We are local to the Twin Cities, but I almost feel like I am on vacation when I go to Punch because I look forward to the meal so much. The pizza is great and beats any pizza I've eaten anywhere, and I've eaten a lot of pizza. The salads are fresh and come with amazing flat bread that has... More

A friend and I make monthly lunch visits to Punch. The thin crust pizzas are bursting with flavor. The Vesuvio is a personal favorite. The best pizza I've had in the Twin Cities. Service is excellent. Seating is cramped. Noise levels during lunch and dinner can seriously hinder conversation.

While a bit cramped, Punch has a delightful flavor and creative toppings as they make in Italy. The local chain is also a favorite with college students, as they often have "free pizza" days and cupons delivered via social media. Unique, delicious, and a fun place to eat!

This was by the far the best pizza I've ever had. We visited some relatives in St. Paul for Christmas and they took us there. The service, decor, and open pizza oven were all highlights. But the pizza...the crust so delicate and light, the buffalo cheese and tomatoes a perfect blend. Highly recommended!

I love the pizza here and the salads are really great too. It's a fun atmosphere and they are great with kids. We love eating outside or in, the service is good and I've never had a bad meal.

This place is SO good! They serve authentic Naples style pizza. It is amazing!!!! I can't say that with enough exclamations :) It is think crust, drenched with olive oil and fresh toppings and then put in a 600 degree wood burning oven for 90 seconds. My other favorite things are the Punch Salad and the artichoke dip. I love... More

How can you go wrong with Punch Pizza? Those in the Twin Cities know this is the best, authentic, wood-fired pizza around, so if you're visiting the area and looking for great pizza, look no further. We've been to the locations in Eden Prairie and on Grand Avenue in St. Paul, and all are excellent with their own vibe. I... More

I have heard wonderful things about this pizza. It has been said this is as close to New York pizza as you will get in Minnesota. It was take out so maybe this is partially why the pizza was up to par. The edges were done just right and had burnt bubbles like New York pizza. However, it was soggy.... More

We have visited this Punch Pizza about 50 times over the past 6-7 years. Their salads are wonderful with quality ingredients. Pizza's are unique with only one size to choose from (12-inch). Simple but good wine and beer list. prices are reasonable. We like outdoor seating whenever the weather permits.
