Welcome to Pulcinella, an intimate Italian restaurant located in the Kempsville area of Virginia Beach. Located in the Kempsriver shopping center, our restaurant is a family owned and operated establishment.
We came to Virginia Beach from Italy, bringing with us our favorite Italian dishes and favorite family recipes. The many favorable reviews we have received speak to how authentic our menu items are. For those who have lived or traveled in Italy, our dishes remind them of their dining experiences while there.
The restaurant has about 48 seats. We also have deli in which you can find your favorite imported Italian meats and cheese. All our products are imported from Italy such as prosciutto di parma, mortadella, provolone auricchio, extra virgin olive oil, fresh mozzarella cheese, and lots, lots more! We also have homemade lasagna, sausage and more, which can be ordered for takeout or for your next family or corporate event.
Our goal is to keep you happy and make you feel like you have a home away from home. We aim to provide you with a pleasant, authentic Italian experience you’ll always remember. If you can’t dine in Italy, come to Pulcinella, your piece of Italy in Virginia Beach.
All of our menu items are available to go, and we also offer catering.

Finding Pulcinella was the highlight of my week. The food was fantastic. I overheard the man at the next table say that he lived in Naples for thirteen years ... in my mind he knows good Italian food and the fact that he was sitting in Pulcinella's speaks volumes.
Join us and experience not only a great Italian meal but also the selections of items found in our deli. We have all your favorite Italian products like panettone and other baked times like pastiera napoletana. We've expanded our selection of wine, and have homemade sweet and spicy sausage available to take home. For dessert we always have our dessert case filled with wonderful treats like cheesecake and amaretto tiramisu. We have fresh mozzarella ,fresh sausage, fresh cookies and a lot more, stop by and visit!
