Carmella’s Plates & Pints is the first restaurant for co-owners, Carmella Salem and Michael Alberter. Our kitchen creates upscale comfort cuisine.
Our dining room has a warm and cozy feel due to the wood- beamed cathedral ceiling, open fireplace, taxidermy and stained glass windows that adorn the dining room. Our guests feel as though they are tucked away at some destination lodge that exists in the heart of the Historic Southside. Local meats are delivered daily with Wild Game plates on the menu such as our staple plates like the Bison Burger and Smoked Wild Boar Meatballs. We do have an intimate 60 seat dining room and ask that guests please call us for parties of 6 or more to make a reservation. Our expansive Whiskey Bar boasts over 500 Selections. Enjoy 11 Wines on Tap / 27 Craft beers on Tap / 11 Cocktails on Tap.

    This place was such a gem! The quaint and eccentric ambiance were enough to grab ahold of our attention, but the drinks were absolutely incredible! I have never had cocktails so impeccably done! The food was absolutely fabulous as well! We normally don’t stay for dessert, but we decided to try the tiramisu and the cookie skillet, and we were not disappointed! This place is a unique experience with exceptional service. We will definitely be back!

    Risotto was absolutely disgusting no taste at all like boiled grains with no mushroom taste . The shrimps so small so expensive for the quality of food. There was spider webs right next to our table and on sealing. Really disappointed. Don’t recommend.

    Well to start this off this was our third time dining in and 2nd Mother’s Day in a row. We were so excited to go here for Mother’s Day this year I booked a table 6 weeks out. The overall feel of the restaurant is historic blue collar Pittsburgh we love it. The specialized menu is something we love because it makes our choices easier. We ordered our dishes and they came out within 5 Minutes. I got the wagyu meatloaf and my wife, the short rib. We began to feast it looked so good until she realized it was not short rib at all but lamb shank. We kindly asked the waitress what this dish was and she admitted she entered the wrong plate. She asked if we would like the sides that came with the short rib but we declined. After waiting for the check for 25 minutes to our surprise the lamb shank was On the bill. It was not the biggest of deal but we asked to be comped for the mistake and we got a very rude awakening by the hostess who come to find out is actually the co owner Carmella. I have never been treated so aggressively by restaurant staff let alone a co owner of an establishment. She proceeded to say well you knew what the dish was I’ll only take half off to which I politely accepted. The half price dish we didn’t order was all it took to seal the fate of our relationship with this establishment. Upon this experience I have raved and recommended this place but never ever again. I refuse to allow somebody to be treated the way we were this Mother’s Day.

    We absolutely love Carmella’s. Any time we have a visitor from out of town we bring them here. Drinks are always on point, food is incredible, atmosphere is fantastic. We love sitting out at the high tops and just take it all in.

    This was our first time at Carmella’s. We had heard many great things about the place and we were not disappointed. The service was very friendly. Everyone was very attentive without being overbearing. The food was brought out in a nice timely manner. Each dish we had tried was excellent. We tried several small plates and one was better than the next. The cocktails were excellent and the collective whiskey list was unsurpassed by no other establishment I have visited worldwide. Overall, a wonderful experience and we will definitely return with friends.

    The people were lovely and attentive. They clearly wanted our experience to be first rate. We were in Pittsburgh for our grand-daughters Pa State gymnastic competition. Carmella and her staff couldn’t have been more generous with their time. The calamari were tender, the ribs delicious and the gnocchi were decadent. My daughter and grand daughter shared a skillet cookie with vanilla ice cream. They recommend it. Nice job, Carmella!

    Carmella’s is a hidden gem in Pittsburgh! From the excellent service and delicious, diverse menu to the beautiful welcoming atmosphere, this restaurant checks every box for a wonderful meal out. The cocktail menu is extensive, and the Sunday brunch, with Sunday afternoon live music can’t be beat. It’s our go-to restaurant in the city!
