Finally got some... We were seated outside and they seemed to forget we were there and it took quite some time before our waiter came. The bread that came in first was served with a red paste in oil, ok but not fantastic. I ordered...More

They are closed, but this is a loss to Pittsburgh. Fine Italian food, chased out by a bad landlord. Too sad.

This was a great find wandering in downtown Pittsburgh. Fantastic home made salad dressing. Home made desserts. Nice selection of Italan wine. We had seafood pasta with a great red sauce. Looking forward to my next time in Pittsburgh to return there.

Spent the weekend at Pittsburgh and walked into La Cucina Flegrea!! I was awe struck at the fact the restaurant was empty. I was nervous as I had read both sides of the reviews but thought I would give it a try! Came out pleased!!...More

Was disappointed in the food, especially given the prices. I was hoping for something really special to share with my grand daughter before a theater trip.

Arrived here about 11:30AM on a Monday and were seated immediately. It is a nice little place. The food was excellent. Salad was fresh and quite different. Service was very good even as the restuarant started to fill up. Price was suprisingly reasonaable.

La Cucina Flegrea is the real thing. I travel to Italy often and the chef is truly gifted in her renditions of favorites and original recipes. When I'm in Pittsburgh this is my choice for Italian food.

My husband and I ate at the spur of the moment at La Cucina Flegrea, and we were glad of our choice. Having travelled in Italy many times, we know how hard it is to find authentic Italian food in the U.S., but the selection...More

Not sure why the reviews are poor on Yelp and Urbanspoon.....this place albeit quite expensive for Pittsburgh, was quite wonderful. Being served by the owner's son straight off the boat was a plus. Service was very good. Pasta tasty, spinach and garlic and olive oil,...More
