I was really disappointed with my dining experience at this restaurant. Because of the prices - in Pittsburgh, nonetheless -- I assumed I was going to have a fine dining experience. My biggest peeve is that the entrees are offered with two sides - a salad and a pasta. If you order pasta as an entree they do not offer... More

Our friends that live in Pittsburg took us here for dinner as it is one of their favorites. I ordered the fish special Maki which was prepared perfectly. The burrata and arugula salad was tasty as well. The eggplant ordered by our friend was good and very fresh tasting. The Parmesan encrusted port chop was huge!! Was so thick and... More

The food was FABULOUS! The service was IMPECCABLE!! It is located in a very unique area of Pittsburgh, as well. I most certainly hope I will be able to return every time I visit Pittsburg.

Dinners come with soup or salad. The soup was excellent, The crab cake appetizer was also very good. I had the lamb chops and my son had the chicken. both prepared nicely, the star is the butterscotch pound cake, it's a must

Visiting our son in the Pittsburgh area for the first time, we decided to go by Trip Advisor reviews and selected this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The restaurant was in an old house with two levels for dining. The lower level has a bar, seemed a bit crowded and drafty by the door for eating. Luckily we were seated... More

This by far is one of the best restaurants I have ever visited outside of the NYC area. Every meal was prepared to perfection. At first glance the menu may appear a bit pricey, but every entree comes with a choice of soup or salad and a pasta. It is plenty of food for the money and worth every penny.... More

The food here is wonderful. The service always top flight. The atmosphere is upscale but not pretentious. What makes this restaurant such a fabulous experience is Joe and Melissa Tambellini. They run a fine establishment and make each person feel welcome and at home. Please, give this place a try.....you won't be disappointed!

Went with a group of 8 for a special occasion. Tables can be crowded, especially upstairs -- so goes the noise level as well. My son and I had the veal parm -- and I have had much better. The breading was quite heavy, sauce was good as always, pretty skimpy on the cheese. I've had it there before and... More
