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.

    Very disappointing. My daughter just started college there and we were hoping to find a place to revisit when we visit her. Nope. Worst pasta I've had in years! At least the foccaccia bread was decent. Otherwise this was an overpriced debacle. Server was even odd.

    Everything was very good. We had several courses and requested they come quickly since we were seeing a Holiday Concert after dinner. Only real mentionable less than ideal thing during our visit, no freshly grated italian cheese offered for our meals. Im sure its available had we asked but as I said..a minor mention.

    First time eating here and unfortunately the last. Both the food and service were substandard. The drinks did not appear until towards the end of our meal, even though we requested them before placing the order, the food lacked taste, and my dish had to be sent back. Would not return to this place, definitely not worth it!

    I made reservations on Light-Up Night in Pittsburgh about 3 weeks in advance. I had a few other options but chose Vallozzi's because it was close to the center of the festivities for the light-up events. Vallozzi's has a nice bar that looks out over the streets of Pittsburgh but when we arrived early for a drink the bar was closed for a special event. The bar area was one of the main reasons I chose Vallozzi's so that started my evening on the wrong foot. After being seated the service was just ok. No specials on the menu because they said it was going to be too busy. However, a lot of empty tables in the dining room at the time of my reservation and until we left @9:00pm. Food was good though but not exceptional. All in all, I wished I would have chosen another restaurant in the downtown area.

    I had the most enjoyable time with close friends. We sat at a round table so everyone could see one another to talk, and the food was absolutely amazing! We all tried one another's meals, and ordered a full three courses so we basically sampled half the menu! I highly recommend!

    Tried to get us out of there as fast as possible. Got our cocktails and appetizers in 10 minutes. Our salads arrived 5 minutes later and our entrees five minutes after that. Entrees cold before we could get to them. 45 minutes from seating to check. What’s the rush? Sheesh……..

    We had a lovely dinner with friends last night and I would definitely return again. We had a drink at the bar before seating at our table. Bartender was really helpful and enjoyed our specialty cocktails. Dinner was so good! Awesome bread with ricotta and olive oil at the table, which was really unique and delicious. We shared a cheese plate to start - again, very unique and tasty! My main was mushroom ravioli and my partner had swordfish. He loved all of the flavors and had nothing but positive words about the dish. Our server was super nice and professional. Great experience!

    Had lunch and my linguine shrimp was good but salty. My friend had a Caesar salad. With both dishes some bread should have been served. I told Jordan, our server, I’d pay for it, but she said they have no bread at lunch!!! It was ok but I wouldn’t return.

    The service was fine, but the food made the experience mediocre. The bread was dry and flavorless which is a true disappointment for an Italian Restaurant. The meatballs and marinara sauce was the only redeeming food item. We ordered a bottle of California wine that was good and allowed us to stay to finish the meal. We travel to Pittsburgh regularly and have eaten at this restaurant prior to last night with much better results. Unfortunately, we will not return to eat at Vallozzi’s.

    Our waiter made us feel completely unwelcome and like an inconvenience to him. We waited 15 mins after he brought drinks before he came back to see if we wanted to order. Other tables right next to us had much better service. The chicken I ordered tasted bad but I couldn’t tell him because he never came back. I finally flagged down another waiter to pay our check and just left. Won’t be going back there again.

    The greens and bean had all the greens mulched up instead of leaving them whole. Texture was bad and no flavor. Pizza flavor was good but crust was like eating cardboard. Get a new pizza crust recipe. The salads were excellent! Get filtered water and not use tap water.

    Such a great restaurant— cannot believe we have not visited before. Matthew was our server — extremely personable and able to share information about the menu. We were there shortly after opening and it filled quickly— staff were always moving and kept up top line service despite not seeing many staff. Highly recommend!!!
