Pulino's Bar and Pizzeria


Pulino's by the Numbers

At the end of the day, you crave the simple things in life.

A room, bathed in dim light and buzzing with energy. A place where you can sit back and gorge on antipasti, prosciutto and pizza. Especially when that room comes from the man behind Balthazar, Pastis and Minetta Tavern. But you don't need hype. You need facts, stats and solid, impregnable data.
