We had a wonderful evening at Senti visiting with our son over the Thanksgiving weekend. As always, the food was very enjoyable. We had two of Chef Antonio's creations. The short ribs in red wine sauce over polenta was excellent and the tuna special was perfect served rare. Nicole did an excellent job of helping us pick the perfect wines to accompany our dinners. We love the warm reception that Franco always offers his guests.

We had our Thanksgiving meal at Senti. We were there early in the day, so it wasn’t crowded when we arrive. It did get more crowded as time went on, but the ambience was lovely. The food was amazing, with multiple choices for Thanksgiving dinner, including turkey. It was much more food than what we could eat, but outstanding meal!

My meal last night was not good. My branzino was very dry, and the fettuccine carbonara was too thick and gooey and tasteless.

Been to Senti more than a handfulof times the last few yearsThis by far was my worst experience.Meatball appetizer luke warm,fingerling potatoes burnt to a crisp,asked for new ones and they were still hard in the middle,steak was not bad.We had anearly reservation and we asked waitress to time our meals but we were served every one right on top of the other.First time we were very disappointed.It will be a while before we come back if at all but had mostly good dining experiences in the past.

My only disappointment was that the arugula salad is no longer on the menu. But everything was delicious, including the salad that I chose instead of my favorite, and the cocktails were, as always, outstanding. The service is cheerful, friendly (but not intrusively so), the room was pleasant and quiet, and everything was lovely. I'd love to have them closer to us, but that's not likely to change!

We enjoyed another fantastic dinner at Senti with friends from St. Louis. Franco was the ultimate host and did a great job of finding the perfect wines to accompany our dinner choices. Our meals were all prepared to everyone's liking including branzino, ravioli stuffed with burrata cheese and pasta Arrabiata con Polipo.
As always, Holly and Nicole attended to every detail of our dining experience.

Friday night - very busy but ambience was nice - white tablecloths - restaurant was very inviting. Would love to give it 5 stars for service , ambience and food - appetizers and drinks were wonderful! However 3 of us ordered the Branzino and I don’t know what fish it was or if it had been frozen but it was not like any Branzino we had ever had and that tends to be a dish we order very often in restaurants. It had to be the worst fish we have had in a long time - our 4th diner had the ravioli which she said was underwhelming as well - so entrees were a huge disappointment after a stellar beginning - hoping the Chef changes the fish dish and ups the quality of the entrees to match the Antipasti and Appetizers ....

Nice place. Food was good. They need to change the person greeting you at the door. Not welcoming at all. Place was empty on Tuesday and she wanted to put us in back area. We asked to be seated at window and she wasn’t happy.

A lovely restaurant. Service was attentive, but not obtrusive. We enjoyed a delicious cheese and meat appetizer, which was accompanied by different fruit jams. The fresh gnocchi with duck confit and mushrooms was particularly delicious . Not overly heavy or rich, but full of flavor. The halibut special was also wonderful, served with sauteed spinach and a butternut cream. The apple tart dessert was heavenly. We will definitely return to sample other dishes.

We had another great dinner at Senti this week. The Red Pepper and Burrata salad is refreshing and a wonderful alternative to a typical salad. We both enjoyed our fish entrees-- Branzino and halibut. The fish was moist with a tasty preparation. We absolutely enjoyed the evening talking with Holly at the bar and Annette. One of our favorite restaurants in Pittsburgh!

The food was delicious and beautiful in presentation. Our server did not introduce herself to us but did to everyone who was seated after us. It was slightly off putting but did not interfere with the overall dining.

Elegant 'Italian" (NOT Italian-American!) cooking done beautifully and wisely. We went to a 4-course wine dinner and everything was uniformly excellent. Beyond that. the chef had given evidently careful thought to food and wine pairings (4 distinct Tuscan wines), so that flavors were compatible and total food amounts appropriate. Senti is as close as you can come in Pgh to fine dining in Italy.

First time. Beet and goat cheese salad and starter salad were excellent. Main course pastas were disappointing Carbonara sauce was too thin, like a broth. Octopus pasta was too spicy and crunchy. Dessert was good. Server was excellent

Every time we go to Senti’s, we always say why don’t we come more often. We got to eat outside. Food was amazing. I had a great watermelon salad. The 4 of us each had something different. My husband had a wonderful Pasta dish, I had the Salmon. If you haven’t tried it, it is a must!
