Another fantastic evening from beginning to end. The service is always first class, the food amazing and Missy and Joe are the most gracious hosts.
Wonderful evening celebrating our wedding anniversary.
Great evening with friends, wonderful atmosphere, amazing food, attentive service. look forward to our next visit to Joseph Tambellini.
Thanks, Charlotte and Melissa. Great as always.
The food and service were outstanding. The Veal Parmesan and the salad were perfect. I also had a couple of Mules with Fig Vodka - outstanding Excellent choice and no regrets. If I had one minor suggestion to them, it would be to upgrade their bread; but, I am being picky as the meal was delicious and worth coming back.
This was our first time, we’ve been wanting to try it for dinner. Well it was a pleasant experience. The ambiance was pleasant, the server was pleasant, knowledgeable and friendly. Our meal was perfectly prepared and delicious. Unfortunately the restaurant is a hour and a half from our home, but we will definitely come back to this nice restaurant. I Highly recommend Joseph Tambellini’s
Great food and service
Everything is house made
Friendly reception upon arrival. Our server, Veronica, was exceptionally efficient and attentive to our party of 4. Food was outstanding as always, and courses were well-paced. We didn't feel rushed. Our small table barely accommodated all the plates and bowls of food. Maybe remove the salt & pepper shakers, as they were not needed at all since the food was seasoned to perfection at the stove.
Always a good time at tambellinis, its our go to place for birthdays and anniversaries
Our daughter moved in nearby and we enjoyed a wonderful dinner here.
Always a great meL
As usual, the food was incredibly good. I wish I had ordered the Veal Romano, I think it is called, because it is basically my favorite food in the entire world, Viener Schnitzel. Best caesar salad I've had in a long time. You get a lot of food with every entree, so it was a challenge to stop eating the amazingly great calamari, which comes in a spicy/sweet (not too spicy) sauce and is fresh and delicious. Great fish, too...lovely ambiance. The owners are doing a great job keeping the tables far apart and not over-booking. Be sure to call in your reservation early, as they fill up fast.
Great food and ambience
Waiter kept rushing us, food was good as always.
Our favorite Pittsburgh restaurant! Great food and attentive service all while facing significant challenges from guidelines in place due to Covid19
Another lovely evening !

Crab Balls to die for. Steak and Pork Chop was cooked perfectly. Awesome service. Can't wait to go back again.
Food is always exceptional. Great meal!
Service, food and ambiance was great! The owners really care about the customers and make them feel at home. Love this place!
The best! Everything is excellent here. Cannot go wrong.
Always a great meal. Eggplant parmesan is the best I've ever had. Virginia spots were great.
As visitors from out-of -town, we dine at Joseph Tambellini with our college age daughter each time we visit her. The food, atmosphere, and service are excellent and consistent, and the staff make us feel like valued regulars even though we only visit Pittsburgh once or twice yearly.
Thanks for a wonderful meal! Celebrated our wedding anniversary with good wine and excellent food.
They went above and beyond. What a great restaurant. Our server, Charlotte was amazing. And the owners made sure everything was just right. The food was some of the best Italian I’ve had in a long time. I cannot wait to come back!
Wonderful ambiance. Special anniversary for 2 couples. Outdoor seating as requested. Waiter very polite and accommodating. Food exceptional,as usual!
Fantastic dinner and restaurant!! Pittsburgh classic from a family that grew up on the west coast and Texas.
Our service with Ronnie was fantastic. The food, ambiance, and overall experience was so great for a night out celebrating with friends. The portions were also wonderful for the prices. So glad we came here!!
Great food and evening. Highly recommend.
Food was great - prices a little high
As always, our dinner was amazing and the service was excellent. We had a truly relaxing dinner and had fun talking to Missy and Joe. We wish them the best during this trying time. Hang in there. You have the best restaurant in Pittsburgh !!
Food was delicious but overpriced
Great food and service. Our waiter Joe from Lawrenceville was outstanding.... Ron Reid
The best authentic Italian restaurant in Western Pennsylvania.
Amazing food and service!! Can’t wait to go back!!
I absolutely loved my experience at Joseph Tambellini. I cannot wait to return here again.
Great experience- wonderful server
I had the walleye special. however I think it would have been excellent without the many salty capers and the sauce. it took away from the flavor of walleye. less toppings.
Awesome restaurant with exceptional food at affordable value, unique wine and libations and gracious professional service; and a definite return supper destination.
Everything was delicious from appetizers to coffee at the end. Best spot in Pittsburgh to eat
