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.

Food cam out cold - had to send it back. Basically tastes like olive garden with homemade noodles. Way overpriced for quality. Way better Italian available in Pittsburgh for this price range

Not as good as the Greensburg restaurant. Ambiance not as warm and inviting. A VERY limited menu - only 1 filet size, no NY Strip or Lamb. Large wine list but no descriptions or pairing suggestions. Service was average. NOT at the same level as Grbg.

The food was superb. The brussel sprouts were a little bland, but we had a great time. I would strongly encourage you to sit and enjoy.

Great restaurant. Trendy, upscale decor. Delicious food and excellent service. Perfect martinis.

I highly recommend Vallozzi’s for lunch or dinner.

The staff followed Covid 19 restrictions perfectly. We were very comfortable with our restaurant selection.

For easy traffic/parking, we parked at Station Square and took the T over to the Wood Street station, close to the restaurant. After dinner, we took an Uber back to our parked car.

Return customer. Love the food here. This time for lunch. Soup was fantastic, as was the salmon. Service was exceptional. However, $80 for lunch for 2 is a bit crazy. Entree's were $16+, and when you add soup and a drink...gets a bit nuts price wise. While I love this place, could not afford to dine here more than a couple times a year.
