Stagioni was founded in 2009 by chef owner Stephen Felder and co owner Cara Delsignore.
Stephen takes a fresh and simple approach to Italian cooking by using local and seasonal ingredients.
While Stephen tends to the kitchen, Cara is responsible for creating the wine list and drink lists.
We have a seasonal approach to drinks as well, using ingredients and flavors of the season.
Our wine list consists of unique grape varietals as well as great food pairing Italian classics.
We are located in Pittsburgh's south side on the 21st block of Carson street.

Always one of our favorite places. Food is always especially good. Ordered the Scallops, Shrimp and Chick Peas. Thought it was a wonderful combination, but I thought the portion was a bit small for the price. That is the only reason I gave them a 4 star on the value. A large person would have left hungry. Otherwise, great spot!

Outstanding food and service. The staff makes a great and successful effort to make guests feel like family. Conversation is easy, descriptions of menu items clear and honest. It is just one of the finest dining experiences in Pittsburgh.

I have alway loved your restaurant. I loved the rollitini WITH the speck. It was my go to choice. I have been there since that was changed and always enjoyed my meal. Saturday night was the first time I saw the new menu. Very disappointed and didn’t know what to order, so I played it safe with the hanger steak. It was tough. I loved the little potatoes with it, though. My friend had the shrimp and scallops with polenta. Fishy smell and pour the polenta over it was a very unappealing presentation. He commented to the waiter that it looked like cream of wheat! I think you need to rethink some of your menu choices. However, don’t change the mozzarella. It is delicious!

Since before they moved from Bloomfield to South Side, we’ve been saying “we have to get to Stagioni!”
We finally did and it was wonderful! Comfortable atmosphere, but not too casual, it feels like you’re “going out to dinner”... our waiter Rob was excellent, gave recommendations, checked on us just enough and was so knowledgeable.
The room was lively but not loud.
The food was DELICIOUS! Try to Dates wrapped in Prosciutto- they’re amazing and save room for dessert, the Olive Oil cake was unique and a perfect sweet but not too sweet treat - definitely big enough to split.
The option to order a small or large order is pasta is great! More places should do that!!
We’re in love with Stagioni and we’ll be back! So happy that white table cloth restaurants have come back to South Side!

We were in town for a family event and wanted to get a bite to eat on the south side. Stagioni did not disappoint! For three of us, we split the mozzarella appetizer, a small salad, two pasta dishes and one entree. With that, plus two glasses of wine and tip, the bill was around $150 which we were happy with given the extremely high quality of food and service.

Pasta pricing is ridiculous! $22 for a plate! Found my pasta oily, not at all delicate.I haven't been to the restaurant for some time and probably will not return.....not a good value and noise level unbearable!

The fresh mozzarella appetizer is a must! Us two ladies of 50-ish shared the mozzarella, we ordered three small portions of different pastas to try, and we each had an entree. The portions were perfectly sized. We also recommend sharing the large desserts, especially the olive oil cake... A perfect example of Italy across the pond. We left pleasantly full but not stuffed. The wine list is a good value, and we were very pleased with both the food and the price.

The service was excellent, but the price is too high for the food. It was good but i wouldn't say it was one of a kind. There were 3 of us, no alcohol, one appetizer, 2 salads and 3 meals with only one as a full serving. With tip the cost was $100.

Staff is friendly, the place is cute, but the food is bland, underdone, and way too expensive for the poor quality. The focaccia bread they gave us was raw. The pasta dishes were underdone as well and completely flavorless. A complete waste of $60.

The staff at Stagioni was wonderful. My mother has mobility issues and fell walking from the car to the door (cane in tow). No sooner did she start to go down did I see one of staff run out to make sure she was okay. I was bringing her for a birthday dinner and she still wanted to go in and they could not have been more accommodating. Kind, but never made her feel self conscious and she enjoyed a fabulous meal. When we got a block away we realized we forgot her leftovers at the restaurant. I called, turned the car around, and no sooner did I reach the curb outside the restaurant was our waiter there to bring it to our car. This is beyond service. This is true kindness and accommodation and it meant the world to me and my mom.

Upon arrival, the host led our party of 4 to a table for 2. When informed her we had 4 people, they quickly set up another table nearby that would fit us. The waitress then came over and gave a very detailed rundown of the menu, highlighting several new items as well as crowd favorites. Once we placed our order, a few mistakes started to happen. The server forgot the glass of wine I had ordered, forgot my part of my husband’s meal, and someone started serving us an appetizer that was meant for a different table. Once we pointed out each problem, the staff were apologetic and very quick to fix it. As far as food goes, the flavors were good overall. The appetizers were delicious (we ordered the mozzarella, dates, and polenta). For entrees, we each order 2 half sizes of various pastas. Almost everyone at the table felt similarly that they loved one of their pastas but wasn’t crazy about the other one. Overall we had a fine experience there, just nothing spectacular.

A gem on the Southside. Menu is always changing to add seasonal items. One owner is the master of the bar, the other, chef. Both are outstanding. Eating at one of the tables in the bar area is always fun and relaxing. I look forward to my next visit!!
