    Great for dates or special occasions. The food is okay and overpriced (NYC prices). However, for Pittsburgh, it's definitely way above average and a good option if you're looking for something nice.

    Had an amazing seafood dish with crushed tomato sauce and lemon aioli; highly recommended. Creative and flavorful dishes here and great portion size for the price.

    Some of the most authentic Italian food in Pittsburgh. They welcome off-menu requests - the Chicken Alfredo is excellent.

    Tough to get a table, even when you've got a reservation. Cozy and the food's decent.

    Great for dates. The chicken of the day has never let me down and the portions were generous. The ravioli portions, on the other hand, are not quite as large.

    The spaghetti w/ corn, mozzarella & tomatoes is incredible. The flavor combination is good, but the dish is extremely garlicky. You'll be exhaling garlic for hours after eating it. But it's worth it.

    The best food in all of Pittsburgh. My favorite restaurant by far. I've never ordered a single thing that wasn't enjoyable. Plus, get serenaded one on one by a fantastic Italian singer!

    Excellent pasta fagiole ! All three of our entrees were outstanding. One pasta , one fish and one chicken. I don't think you can make a wrong choice. Very Good experience

    Food is overrated. They are OK. So so so hot, and so so so loud. Not a romantic spot for sure!

    Really accommodating to small children! Ordered a kid sized penne for my 19 month old and they asked if we wanted it ASAP before our own food!

    They take "reservations" which don't guarantee you a table. But awesome food.

    Everything is always excellent here. Just be prepared for a wait during peak hours and a bouyant atmosphere. Not a quiet date spot but amazing food. BYOB & wine list available
