They will prepare anything - anyway you want it, even if not on menu. Waiters & owner know you by name. The waiters (who pool the tips) know exactly what you want. Sunday Brunch is exceptional.

Cannot believe the disappointment-- our salads were better tasting, the presentation was better, the portion (was a portion) compared to the lasagna. When have you ever seen a menu that would ask what filling for lasagna? NEVER -- The menu shows: meatball, sausage "OR" meat sauce. A good (Italian) lasagna consists of all three (ground), along with three cheeses: mozzarrela, ricotta and parmesan and between, layers of pasta. Plus a sizeable portion--not at Pulcinella's. The metal server, was placed on your dinner plate--the serving was extremely small and NO Layers of anything good. "MB" ordered the sausage and said "CJ", "IT" was like a hot dog sliced lengthwise, in the serving dish -- I will not say anymore. VERY SAD "CJ's" carbonara was not bad.

I agree with the posts about this restaurant being VERY friendly. My 93 year old grandmother LOVES this restaurant. She always uses the upstairs bathroom and even though we only go once a month or so the staff know her by name, give her a table up front, and since she always orders the same thing they ask if she wants "the usual" :-) Great atmosphere and my family has never had a dish we didn't like. Dessert is great too. A little on the pricey side but WELL WORTH IT!

Pulcinella has amazing food! I have never tasted better.Everything is perfect. I do not like fancy reastraunts so this reastraunt is perfect for me. I go there all the time. I consider you all go there!

I've eaten many a meal at Pulcinella's, and TheGIrlz couldn't be more wrong about handicapped accessibility. Yes, the main restrooms are downstairs, but there's a handicapped restroom on the main level that my 90-year-old mother uses every time we go there. As for the management not being responsive to her concerns well, I can't imagine that. With a handicapped facility right there and clearly marked with the blue handicapped sign on the door, how could they possibly be non-responsive? Now that that issue's been addressed, let me say that the food is consistently first rate, the service is superb, and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. After you've eaten there a few times, you'll feel like one of the family!

One of the best restaurants to get in and out during lunch in Tysons area (try and do that in tysons) and the food is delicious. Also, there is a restroom on the main level for people who can't make it downstairs (I assume the person who gave the previous review merely complained about the stairs, not actual handicapped accessibility).

This is the only restaurant I have ever been in where the restrooms are in the basement and there is no way for handicapped to get there. I complained to the management and they were disinterested, and then to Fairfax County but I'll bet nothings been done. Won't ever eat there again because of their total disregard for the handicapped. And might I mention that the stairs to the basement are very steep and its an unusually long trip so even the elderly would have to walk down very gingerly and hold the hand rail with both hands. I guess we're lucky there's a handrail.
