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.

This is our favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh! We live in New York again, but we make sure to go back every time we visit. We have yet to find an Italian restaurant with this charm and delicious food in NYC!

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.

This restaurant was definitely not worth the money. I've never experienced such a minuscule portions of food ever in an Italian restaurant. Very expensive overpriced for what you get.

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!!

The ambiance at Stagioni is wonderful -- it is romantic and conducive to good conversation. I realize they do not cater to vegans, but the vegan food was subpar. It was also cold and extremely overpriced for the portion size. I'm not a big eater, but was still hungry after salad and a large pasta. My husband's was also cold and small.

The service was good but not great. Our server was very friendly, but it took a good 5-10 minutes to get our drinks for example.

Overall, I would probably not go back to Stagioni.

I would feel better holding off on recommending until I visit again. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was cozy and quaint ....but we could not get over the service! It was too the point that it was comical. Although our server made many mistakes and acted like she was not aware that she had done anything wrong, made us think they need to train the staff better(so we put it on the management). We will return for the food, one more time, BUT if the service is the same...shame on them!

I have been to Stagioni many times. After the folks at Dish decided to take a "sabbatical," Stagioni has become one of my new go-to restaurants in the city. I even had my 40th birthday there in a private room upstairs. The food the other night was excellent as usual, but we were seated downstairs, rather than upstairs, for the first time, and, as a result, it was not the same experience. It is too bright and too loud - not what I had in mind for a nice Valentine's Day dinner. Additionally, I have always thought Stagioni's corkage fee (much like Dish' used to be) was very reasonable, and I have been happy to pay it, but now it's $20. I understand the need for a corkage fee, but Stagioni (while clearly very good and one of my favorites) is not a high-end restaurant, and now they are charging more of a high-end restaurant corkage fee. I realize some of those fees can be $25 or even as high as $35 (like at Altius, and I will never go there again for that reason), but $20 for Stagioni seems to be a bit steep, especially considering the casual vibe, particularly in the downstairs area. Still, great food, and I will probably go again, but it was not the same experience this last time around.
