Pulino’s in the Lower East Side

July 13, 2010

I mentioned in my last food post that I’ve been trying to dine at Pulino’s pizzeria for a while since I saw its inviting lights one night walking by. I finally got the chance to eat there recently. The food was good, but a little confusing. Well, ok, maybe just the gnocchi was.

So gnocchi. Yes. I can safely say it was unlike any other potato gnocchi I’ve ever had before, it was served with chicken tomato sauce that kindaaa tasted like Spanish enchilada sauce. Confusing. And a little weird to taste. Not a huge fan.

The pizza though was different and a pretty good crispy, thin crust one at that. The pesto pizza comes topped with gorgonzola if I remember correctly, and pine nuts.

Some parts were a little overdone (translation: a little burnt). Other than that, the pizza definitely made up for the (confusing) gnocchi. The place is also pretty big and super loud, and there’s usually a long wait but the staff was great and accommodating. Points for that. We scored seats outside…great for people watching too…creepy much?
