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 pretty decor, the tables were set apart, the food was very good and the wait staff were fun and friendly. We were celebrating our 18 year old choosing his college after a long process.

The food was as good as it has ever been, unfortunately, it look like staffing was the issue. As the evening wore on the sever was less and less available, causing the last half hour to be painful in terms of attention from service

Not good. I usually don’t take the time write reviews, but this was necessary. Saw the autographed plates on the wall as soon as we walked in gave me high hopes that this was going to be a great dining experience. Nice ambience for a Wednesday night. The server was unfriendly in the beginning, as though they are ready for their shift to end. Then the server became friendlier once they realize we barely ate any of our food as it wasn’t tasty. Free bread in the beginning was old, not good. This was the first tell. Then Ordered: meatballs (it was cold inside, as though it was sitting out all day and they microwaved it warm it up); parmesan risotto (very good! The best thing I had all night!); spinach pizza (it was ok); delmonico (terrible as though the meat was in inventory for a while and waiting to be ordered); stuffed chicken parm (not traditional, not good); ricotta cannelloni (not good, actually the best part is the melted mozzarella on top, pasta itself was not worth the carbs. I ate two bc I felt bad); burrata (I’ve had better, tasted like it’s been sitting in the fridge). I guess server overheard us complain at how unappetizing it was and saw that we weren’t eating most of it, so she gave us a discount which I appreciate. However we will not be going back. Time for Tagamet :(

Dinner last night was great. Our server/bartender Eva made perfect drinks and was very helpful in explaining some of the new dishes on the menu. Had the latest version of Arancini which was very tasty and the Barbabietola beet salad which was delicious. All together a wonderful evening.

The pork chop was tender, tasty, very well prepared and served nicely with a bed of spinach and polenta. However, the topping, consisting of olives, hot peppers, artichokes and some other ingredients was too pungent for my taste. Once the topping was set aside, I enjoyed the chop very much. The arancini were the best I have had.

We seldom eat out due to the pandemic. We were pleased at the cleanliness of the bar area and the restrooms. This made us feel safe and relaxed.

Service was excellent and the food, as always, very, very good.

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.
