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.

Anthony was excellent and efficient.
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.

We were excited to find that Vallozzi's had re-opened! The food is always exceptional and the service is beyond that! Stephanie is one of our favorite servers and always treats us as family! I highly recommend requesting bar seating and having Stephanie take care of you for the evening!! You wont be disappointed

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.

I had ordered the pork chop. it was too rare in the middle so I sent it back. They did cook it more and did not charge me for it. They apologized and also gave us free desert. With that said I was disappointed I was not eating with my wife as I had to wait for the pork chop to be cooked again but they took care of the situation. I would like to return and hopefully not have any issues.

I enjoyed my wine but was disappointed that the bar was closed for a private party and I was not able to get HH pricing.
Enjoyed the salmon dinner and shared rosotto side.

I really want to like this place as it is well located and i love Italian, but it just fails to deliver. We had the Tuna Carpaccio as an appetizer and it came upon a salt block. Three small pieces of tuna covered in shredded vegetables. Horrible value and not good. Honestly it shouldnt even be on the menu. Next we had the Insalata Mista salad and it was just very bland. Lastly we shared the PAPPARDELLE BOSCAIOLA and it was good but not great. All in all a very average dinner.

We were visiting Pittsburgh for the weekend and I found Vallozzi’s on Open Table, it had good reviews so decided to give it a shot. It did NOT disappoint!!! Best meal I’ve had in a couple years, I’d say, from start to finish. I had the Risotto di Mare which was incredible, and my husband had the (apparently award-winning) pork raviolis, which were also phenomenal. My son who is 9 loved the risotto ball and prosciutto sampler appetizers, as well as his pizza. His high praise was :”I think I like this even better than Wendy’s!”!!! Our server was top-notch as well, even though it was a busy Saturday night. We will definitely be back next time we’re in town!

Wonderful experience! Valet parked across the street ($10.) Seated promptly for a 6 p.m. reservation on a Saturday evening. Service was very good (perfect blend of meeting our needs; but, not overbearing or intrusive in any way. Thank you, Stephanie.) Starters were arancini, shrimp cocktail, and prosciutto sampler, (enjoyed in that order.) Entrees were 10 oz. filet, crab cakes, and Risotto Di Mare (seafood Risotto,) (enjoyed in that order.) Please note, the filet was excellent... one of the best our table had tasted in years! Cooked to perfection and glazed beautifully. (An absolute steal at $37.) Dessert was tiramisu and spice cake. Both were good; but, I was unable to locate something chocolate..., or more appropriate, something "death by chocolate-esque!" (Especially on Valentine's Day Weekend!) Seems like a definite missed opportunity. Aside from the glaring oversight, the meal was wonderful. Great atmosphere, attentive staff, delicious food and wine! Will definitely visit again in the very near future.

We live in Edinboro (1.5 hours away) and have season tickets to the Pittsburgh Symphony so we come down about 12 times a year. Valozzi’s is our favorite restaurant - the food is sensational!
