    We are not locals but ended up finding this restaurant using Reddit. We were FAR from disappointed. Alla Famiglia is in the heart of the city, and exudes an aura of authenticity and culinary excellence that transports diners straight to the streets of Italy. From the moment you step through the door, the warm ambiance, reminiscent of a quaint Italian trattoria, sets the stage for an unforgettable dining journey. Upon being seated, we were greeted by Robert, who happened to be the wine director. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and patient while guiding us through the extensive menu, which boasted a tantalizing array of traditional Italian dishes and innovative creations. His expertise in the wine department surpassed my expectations. After one interaction, I’m confident he can find anyone their most tasteful wine within their price point regardless of tastes. The attention to detail in both presentation and flavor was evident in every dish we sampled. For starters, we had the smoked provolone. My husband ordered the signature dish, veal chop Milanese, which was by far the best thing they do. After paying, our host let us sample the tiramisu, a classic Italian favorite, with a modern twist. We didn’t want dessert, but ate the whole thing! In addition to the exceptional cuisine, the ambiance of Alla Famiglia was enchanting, with rustic décor, copper cookware everywhere, and soft lighting creating an intimate atmosphere perfect for romantic dinners or celebratory gatherings. Overall, Alla Famiglia exceeded all expectations.

    This was our first time dining and it won’t be our last. Courtney waited on us and was fantastic. We started to it the meatball appetizer and Chuy cut and served it for us. The salad and side pasta is served family style and delicious. We had crab cakes, veal, and seafood Diablo. Wonderful beer selection, an excellent Negroni and wine paired with our meals. We can’t wait to come back. It was a wonderful evening with our parents!

    Wendy the waitress was amazing. She did a fantastic job and was always there to serve our needs. The pasta on the menu was amazing as was all the sides we had. The only down side was that I wanted a Bolognaise pasta and Wendy told me that it was not on the menu, but they could make up a batch for me. First off, unlike the other pasta's on the menu that were amazing, the Bolognaise dish that the chef threw together for me was mediocre at best. Not to mention, I was charged $46 for the sauce and $3 for the noodles? For a plate of pasta that was not good at all. When all of the other dishes offered much more of a delicious pasta at half the cost. Long story short, don't order off the menu and you will enjoy this very much.

    This is by far my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh and possibly my favorite in the world. Service is always top tier and I’ve yet to try anything that doesn’t blow me away. The portion sizes can be overwhelming, but I think that’s important at a good Italian restaurant. I can’t recommend Alla Famiglia enough.

    The food was divine and the service excellent. Expensive, but entrees came with both a salad and an incredible pasta first course. So many at this same price point make you pay for those things separately. Need to save up, but will definitely be back!

    We made reservations on Monday for their happy hour dinner which is called "The Last Supper". The meal consisted of Tagliatelle pasta with ground pork shoulder, sausage link, meatball, garlic bread, salad, (all of which were homemade), and a glass of wine. We couldn't eat all of the food that was on our plates so we had leftovers the next day! The price of $30.00 per meal was well worth the price and we will definitely go back again. We would recommend that you reserve a table well in advance as there are only 3 high top tables, which each seats 4 people, and 20 seats at the bar. We were pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was and the excellent service we received.

    Fantastic dining experience! We arrived early and were immediately welcomed by the Host and promptly seated. We were seated in the kitchen area with a nice view of the neighborhood of Allentown and it's historic murals. Robert, the house Sommelier was very friendly. And with a smile and light wit, was very engaging and informative of all available special dishes along with the regular/seasonal dishes on the menu, and of course their extensive wine selections. We've dined at Arlecchino (Alla Famiglia's sister Restaurant in McMurray) and knew we were going to experience a very relaxed and casual dining experience and that we would not be rushed through our meal and out the door. Alla Famiglia did not disappoint when it came to retaining this standard. We were treated like family, with courtesy and reverence and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. From the first course thru the desert, all of the food was perfectly prepared, unique and delicious. The house made vodka sauce prepared Cavitappi was our second course and is consistently excellent. However, my self-condemnation was not asking for the Cacio e Pepe (a pasta course prepared fresh in a hulled Parmesan wheel table-side), it's a must try. The portion sizes are extremely generous as compared to other higher end establishments. And if you are there for a full service dinner, you will not leave hungry... ever. We even had the opportunity to convey our satisfaction with the chefs, as they had a brief moment of respite. On top of that, we had the pleasant surprise of a decadent Birthday dessert, compliments of the house! If you have the want for a comfortable, multi-course dinner with amazing food and exceptional service, definitely put Alla Famiglia (or Arlecchino's) on your list. Thank me later.

    We had high hopes for a good Italian dinner, but we left here disappointed. We ate at this restaurant in 2007 when it was a tiny restaurant in an old home. Food and atmosphere were excellent back then, but no longer the case. The salad course offered a standard salad that seemed to have been sitting in dressing (way too much) for a while, and the Caesar dressing tasted like peppercorn ranch. There are only two pasta dishes offered, a red vodka sauce and the pasta made in a cheese wheel. No fresh pasta options such as ravioli, gnocchi, etc.. which was the biggest disappointment of all. Chicken dishes (limon and parm) were underwhelming. The worst part was the price, very very expensive given the quality of food. We will not return.

    Having been gifted a certificate at Christmas, we decided to spend our Thursday date night dining at Alla Famiglia for the first time. Daniel, our server, was energenic, knowledgeable and friendly and we opted to take his suggestions for some recommended menu items, which did not disappoint! The Smoked Provolone and Casa Salad both provided a wonderful explosion of flavor. We opted to try both pasta choices because of FOMO and our main courses of Milanese and Halibut exceeded our expectations and stomach capacity. Word to the wise, come hungry! You will still leave with a goody bag, too delicious for the pooch, but perfect for that late night craving from your tastebuds for the party in your mouth to continue. The wine list is expansive albeit expensive and they have a nice variety of seasonal craft cocktails and beer. We were told their deserts are DELISH but being rookies at htis 3 course dining extravaganza, sadly we left no room to enjoy any. But, now we know and we will pace ourselves better next time.
