What You'll Get

Jump to: Reviews | All's Fair at the World's Fair

Anyone who’s tried nailing an oven-fresh pizza pie to a wall knows that pizza is more adept at being edible than being wall art. Today’s Groupon puts pizza back where it performs best with $50 worth of saucy bites and libations at well-located Pulcinella for $20. Fill your stomach with slices of wall-worthy culinary art.

The family operation at Pulcinella takes its flavor inspiration from Naples, Italy, where ripe pizzas grow straight from the sun-soaked vine. Using prized Italian flour and organic, free-range meats, Pulcinella’s prized pies run the gamut from the classic Margherita ($9.50) to the Capricciosa (tomato, mozzarella, mushrooms, ham, olives, and artichokes; $15), the stuffed Farfalla di Toto’ (eggplant, sausage, zucchini, and buffalo mozzarella; $20), and much more onward and outward.

If you’ve already started your day by putting your breakfast and your lunch on pizzas, spread your dinner-wings and try one of Pulcinella’s freshly prepared pasta dinners. The restaurant’s Italian roots blossom into focus through the tastes of Naples’ calamarata (with mussels, clams, bay shrimp, and calamari, $18), the gnocchi Sorrentina ($15), and the lovely pear-and-cheese-filled fagottini cacio e pere ($18). With a dynamic wine list to boot, a well-rounded meal with international scope is well within reach of your 13-foot wingspan.

Since replacing hubcaps on New York taxis in 1939, pizza has traveled the nation, filling countless stomachs along the way. Pizza is a celebration-worthy food for all types of occasions, including the secession of Colorado, Mediocre Fondue Month, and Christmas.


OpenTablers and Yelpers give Pulcinella four stars:

  • The food and service make a trip from the East Bay well worth the effort. – Diner on 11/12/09, OpenTable
  • They are somewhat known for their amazing pizza, which is the closest thing you'll get to a true Neapolitan pizza anywhere outside of Naples, but it would sell the restaurant short to just consider it a pizza-joint. Diner on 10/9/09, OpenTable
  • Pulcinella is my all time favorite place to go to in north beach. – kayla b., Yelp

All's Fair at the World's Fair

Pizza, though born in Italy, is one of America's favorite foods, and it's even been served at a number of World's Fairs. Here are just a few of the amazing exhibits, events, and occurrences of the 1939 World's Fair:

  • Kitchen of the Future, which featured “micro-wave” ovens and ravenous, cannibalistic children forced to compete for their mother's love
  • Robot that could play chess. The robot was later revealed to be a midget in a robot suit; chess later revealed to be Chinese checkers.
  • All attendees given helpful pamphlet, How The Bible Can Stop Your Children From Becoming Communists
  • Butter sculpture of cow giving birth
  • 5000-year time capsule buried with humankind's 100 most deadly diseases in order to wipe out pretentious future generations
