My wife were on vacation in Pittsburgh visiting the sites; Frick, Carnegie, Botanical Gardens and the National Aviary. Searched and selected Alla Famiglia based on the reviews. We arrived an hour earlier than our reservation time, and were delighted that they could accommodate our schedule. The service and food was excellent. We would highly recommend Alla Famiglia

As good as any restaurant in Italy. Tonight I had the best agnolotti outside of Italy. Chef Antonio is incredible. You don’t need to go to Italy to eat real Italian food. Just go to Senti!!! And this is from a Bologna native.

About the restaurant
It takes more than exquisite cooking to make a memorable meal. We at Cucina Vitale believe an intimate atmosphere in the right location, personal and attentive service, and great company is what separates a delicious meal from an unforgettable experience.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE A BYOB and CASH ONLY ESTABLISHMENT.
