My friend and I went for their Tues lasagna special. Lasagna was vegetable lasagna - quite good. Included were a green salad and focaccia. Green salad was good and appropriately dressed. Small piece of focaccia which was a bit dry. I had a dessert of lemon/raspberry gelato which was delicious and a generous serving. Our waitress was excellent. From a Covid standpoint, staff were all wearing masks and table spacing was good. Look forward to returning.

Wonderful service
Ok focaccia, Apps and Salad
Pasta dishes were abysmal
Maybe we should have had one of the mains or pizzas but the gnocchi and stuffed shells made for one of the worst meals ever and definitely the worst at this price point.

The salads were excellent, but the rest of the meal left a little to be desired. Nothing was wrong with it, just not my favorite place, and felt a little pricey for that.

Service was excellent. Food was very good overall. Gnocchi could have been more tender. Too many mushrooms overpowered the dish. Cocktails were outstanding. The porchetta was very favorable, but the portion was way too big. Still everything was very good.

Amazing food and amazing service. The service was on point they kept their distance but they were there instantly to keep drinks filled and plates moving. The food is perfection. We got the strip steak and lamb both cooked perfectly and the flavor was outstanding. We ordered a bottle of wine recommended by the staff and it was an amazing selection on their part. All this with an amazing atmosphere and including two appetizers I couldn't believe how affordable it was. 10/10 would recommend.

We were visiting Pittsburg and looking for an unique place to eat and found Talía Cucina Rosticceria. We had 2 types of pasta and pizza. The hand made pasta was soooo good. Cooked to perfection and the mix of flavors was explosive and delicious. I highly recommend Talía. The server was super nice. Live the decoration as well.

The food is what it's all about at Talia.
Fresh. Tasty. Inventive.
I'm thrilled with their Gluten free options too!
The pizza is delicious, like you'd have in a cafe on a piazza in Rome.
Never had a bad meal there.
Porchetta and roast chicken are delicious big meals.

We enjoyed our meal here. Very happy with the service, cocktails and wine selection. My table ordered the seafood with a red sauce and it was excellent. We also ordered the pork which was good, with the exception of slightly undercooked beans. The desserts (olive oil cake and chocolate torte) were both delicious and clearly homemade. This is a restaurant with exceptional food quality, preparation and service. And also a lovely and relaxing place. I’m glad they have survived the shutdown. Please support them!

Food was excellent. Service was a little out of sync, wine not coming until the meal has already been served, just a bit slow. They had run out of a special after we had already ordered it, but comped one entree by way of apology. Over all quite good!

Talia consistently exceeds our expectations in terms of quality, creativity, and service. Located in the heart of Downtown, they have found a perfect balance of hospitality and approachability, while also providing unique culinary experiences - with a first class wine and beverage program. We are so grateful to have this gem in our "neighborhood".

P.S. Lasagna night is everything... 🤤

Had a lovely ladies night trying all 5 pastas on the menu, plus focaccia and a variety of drinks. Everything was delicious. The service was great. The ambiance is really nice with high ceilings and interesting artwork but still feels cozy with the booths. The only annoyance was that there were plenty of spaces available for us to sit but we were seated closest to the rotating door entrance so kept getting blasted by cold air every time people entered or exited. Part of our party was already seated when we arrived so we didn’t want to make it an issue and move everything to another table but we were surprised they would have chosen that table for us with advanced reservations, the cold, etc. We still had a great time overall and would return!

My boyfriend and I had dinner tonight and it was our first time ever eating here. 10/10, great food, great experience, and amazing staff. Tables were blocked off to comply with COVID restrictions, so we were seated far from others.
We had the focaccia bread with balsamic to start, small arugula salad (with the bestttt most unique mint vinaigrette dressing!) and small Caesar salad, and each got our own Margherita pizzas. Can’t wait to go back and try the gnocchi next time!

This was the first time we have tried this restaurant and read many good reviews about the food and service prior to making our reservation. We enjoyed our experience very much and would definitely go there again. I had the arugula salad and my husband had the mixed green salad and both were excellent. We chose 2 of the specials for our entrees: I had the mahi mahi, which was perfectly cooked along with a variety of vegetables and my husband had the basil/ricotta ravioli which he found to be excellent as well. Before making a final entree selection my husband had just a brief moment of disappointment when he found out they did not offer spaghetti and meatballs, his usual Italian dining selection. However, the menu did offer meatballs as an appetizer/small plate offering.
