This is a true neighborhood gem!
Absolutely the best resteraunt in Pittsburgh
This was my first time going to Tambellini’s and won’t be my last! The food was absolutely amazing! The staff was incredible as well. I’m very impressed with this establishment!
Do yourself a favor and visit this amazing restaurant. The service is wonderful the staff truly cares about your experience. And the food...starting with the appetizers to the dessert every dish was better than the last. Highly recommend the Parmesan crust pork chop and one of their specialty salads. Worth every penny...and you know they appreciate you when the owner comes to your table to chat a bit.
Excellent dining experience. Food great ...service great. Owner made a special point of assuring all went well.
Wonderful food. Wonderful server. Better food than a high priced restaurant in downtown.

Have reviewed Tambellinis before, nothing new to say, just a great place to eat.
Lovely relaxing evening enjoyed with delicious and well-prepared food. All COVID19 guidelines were being followed by staff and guests. We felt very safe!
Excellent service, food was amazing!!
Outstanding! Our favorite (best) restaurant in Pittsburgh. Despite our highest expectations, they always exceed them. Melissa, Joe and their staff, Charlotte in particular, are so welcoming, that you feel the warmth on arrival.
The sesame soy calamari and eggplant Parmesan appetizers are delicious, as is the creamy red sauce on the side. The sea bass special had a wonderful lemony, cream sauce.
A very special evening. Five BIG stars!!!
Food was very good except the fried zucchini appetizer, which was very salty. Our main issue was that our table was close to the bar and area where prepared salads were placed on a tray. Too close and busy for us. And music not good. Why play pop tunes instead of something like Andrea Boccelli?
Joey T’s is by far the best restaurant in Pittsburgh. Great food from great people!
Very cozy and food was outstanding
Warm, cozy atmosphere, excellent service and wonderful food.
Never has let us down!!
I highly recommend Tambellinis! We used to go the one on Rt 51 many years ago and this place has the same level of elegance and service. Highy recommend the filet, zucchini, greens and beans and the cocktails were also very well done.
The staff was very nice and attentive. I went there to celebrate my anniversary and they made sure to wish us a happy anniversary. It was such a nice and cozy place. Very elegant.
Everything from drinks to dessert was absolutely delicious.
Charlotte our server was wonderful !
Tambellini s never lets us down and our friends loved it too!
Great food service and atmosphere!
Outstanding food and service. Would never hesitate to recommend the restaurant.
Great food and great service. I would definitely go back.
The service was excellent. Only once did I need to ask for my water glass to be topped off. The timing of everything else was fine. The food was delicious. The entrees served to everyone were big enough that we all chose to take home food. Leftovers were removed by staff and returned to us boxed and bagged. I'd prefer smaller portions and lower prices; but that's a personal preference, not a failing of this restaurant. One thing: We felt that there should have been more distance between tables. The recommended 6' was definitely not met between us and the diners seated behind me. This is why I gave a lower star grade to ambience. Otherwise the ambiance was lovely. All staff wore masks and wore them properly. Recommended.
This was my second time visiting this beautiful establishment. The food was as delicious as my first visit. The wait staff was very friendly and professional. I will return in the future. Thanks
Our meal and service was impeccable. They never disappoint.
Best restaurant in Pittsburgh. Consistently excellent
Took my wife to dinner here
We had a great experience for our first wedding anniversary dinner! Our waitress, Allie, was absolutely fantastic. The food was also incredible and came out quickly.
Excellent service and delightful meal. Rachel was very knowledgeable about the various entrees and very personable. A wonderful experience all around!
