Senti has become my favorite Pittsburgh restaurant. Their pasta with shrimp is an amazing dish--comfort food with a touch of heat! My husband loves the lasagna and has now ordered it the last 3 times we have been at Senti!

Wait staff are friendly and helpful. Love their outdoor area with nice big heaters for the now chilly evenings.

This was such a pleasant experience. We went a few days ago and are still talking about it and how will would like to return. The food was delicious and very lite, (not like many Italian restaurants). The ambiance was relaxing. The cocktails were unique. The staff was friendly.

The service was very odd that night. The food runner basically dropped the food at our table with no explanation of what the food was. He looked annoyed for some reason
Other than that, fantastic meal.

Mediocre at best. The food was NOT impressive whatsoever, appetizers and entrees, and the oxtail pasta was actually terrible. We ordered 2 glasses of the Chianti and the sediment in the wine was unbearable. We told our waiter and thought it might have been the particular bottle. When the server brought out another 2 glasses as replacement the sediment was just as bad. Have never seen or tasted wine like that, and we are regular wine drinkers. I understand that the servers must wear masks and being Covid conscious we definitely appreciate this, however we could not understand a word of what our waiter said and he always seemed very rushed. The atmosphere at Senti is nice, and it was quiet which we appreciated. Overall we would not recommend Senti.

We had a wonderful evening at Senti taking with Franco, Holly and Antonio. The patio was very comfortable with the heaters. Our meals were excellent -- salmon with broccolini and the amazing short ribs that are incredibly tender. Senti is one of our favorite places and Franco is working hard to address all of the issues with the current COVID situation.

Service impeccable and friendly at the same time. Highly recommend for a fine dining experience at a very reasonable price.

The food was excellent. We were seated outside due to Covid and the outside seating seems like an afterthought and I’m not criticizing that but that does explain why I didn’t give the ambiance a five. Still nice to get out for good food. I was disappointed they didn’t have their wine distribution system operating but understand they just can’t get the volume in Covid times to make it worth while.

Senti is a wonderful place for an everyday meal or an event. We went for my wife's birthday celebration. The food was excellent and authentically Italian, as always. The wine list is very strong. The servers, including our primary server, Alexis, were helpful and very friendly. The owner, Franco, is a warm and gracious host who makes you feel as if you've been invited into his living room.
