Vallozzi's started over 50 years ago when Helen Vallozzi was selling homemade pastas out of her home. Helen opened a take out restaurant in Latrobe, PA a few years later where her popularity exploded. In 1977, Ernie Vallozzi moved his mothers location to Greensburg where it is still open and operating today. In 2012 Ernie's son Julian expanded the tradition in to downtown Pittsburgh. Vallozzi's Pittsburgh has recently joined a mere 1,200 restaurants worldwide as a recipient of the Wine Spectator Magazine's Best of Award of Excellence and is the only Italian restaurant in Pittsburgh to receive such an honor. We can host your intimate date, family dinner, business meetings, or larger parties in our banquet room. Or come enjoy a specially made cocktail in our bar area and a small bite.

    Went here before a show at the Benedum on a Saturday night. I have been here plenty of times before - but solely for business lunches as I work downtown. This was my first dinner, and I was surprised how crowded it was. Great Italian food - always enjoy the food here. Service was extremely fast and friendly. Only minor complaint was the cost - salad and two pasta dinners was close to $100.

    Seated at high top bar table despite having made reservation in advance. Waited over an hour after ordering for meal to arrive at table. One meal (pizza) arrived and then the other (vodka pasta) 5 minutes later. Had less than ten minutes to eat main course until we had to leave for show (informed waitstaff in advance). No time for dessert. Pizza was cold and crust was hard. Very disappointing for a fine restaurant.

    From the time we walked in to the time we left the staff was amazing! This was my boyfriend and Is first time here and it was amazing! The servers were great, the food came out and was perfect. Also, the espresso martini was the best one I have ever had (and I’ve had a lot from a lot of different places). The overall mood and vibe in there was perfect for a valentines dinner. I also enjoyed not being rushed, and when we did place an order for apps/drinks/food it all came out in a timely manner. Cannot wait to go back there!

    My family and I are more familiar with their Greensburg location. The food (quality and taste) is far better in Greensburg. Also the Pittsburgh location does not offer any happy hour selections. However, the service, location and atmosphere were very good.

    Sat in a booth in the bar area, which is very nice. Loved the look and vibe. Service was ok, our server seemed nervous and was a little slow. Waited for our cocktails for quite a long time. Appetizers were all very good, but our entrees had obviously been sitting under heat lamps for a considerable amount of time. Husbands fettuccini alfredo was hard, flavor was ok. I had lemon chicken and again, the texture from sitting under lights was tough. The vegetables were cold. The caceo de pepe mashed potatoes were ok, a little sour. I would return for cocktails and appetizers in the bar area, but if we return for dinner, I would definitely try sitting in the dining room next time for better timing of the food.

    The service was very good, but I think we were spoiled the last two times we’ve been in. Our Waiter David was very personable, however he seemed busy compared to what we normally see when we dine there. Food was, as every time, top notch. Drinks were excellent. Dessert was fantastic.

    Our first time here, we went here for New Years. Service was good, we did wait awhile for our drinks and bread for the table though. Entrees came out pretty quick, the burrata app was delicious. The pasta rigatoni and sausage was just okay. Chicken parmesan, the chicken was over cooked, but the sauce was good. Pretty reasonably priced, we spent about $200 on 3 dishes, 2 apps and 4 drinks. Good sized portions too. Beautiful restaurant. But, the dishes could use a good bit of seasoning.

    We made this our restaurant for our annual New Year's Eves dinner and we were not disappointed. We were seated on time and the service was excellent. The bread with the ricotta and oil was a nice touch, My wife had the lobster with crab meat pasta dish and I had the pork chop. Bot h meals were excellent. Homemade Tiramisu rounded out the meal. We will return on our next trip through Pittsburgh.
