Joseph Tambellini Ratings and Reviews
I will admit that my last visit to Tambellini's was not so great. This visit?... Redemption! The food was fantastic and the cocktails were delicious. Tim, our server, was very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. The only downfall of this place is the price. Over $12 for a cocktail made with Smirnoff? I could buy a whole bottle for that amount. That being said, this is a great place for a special occasion.
Best Italian food in the Burgh (Pittsburgh). Food is outstanding with special items being even better. Can be very noisy if you are seated by the bar or a table of loud guests which is always annoying wherever you dine. Wait staff is attentive and knowledgeable.
Nothing I could possibly say would be enough to describe the entire experience we had. From the moment we stepped inside until we left, this was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had! From the wonderful service to every bite of every mouth watering course, my wife and I couldn't have been more satisfied. In addition, Chef Joe and his wife treated us like family, stopping by to chat, the. enthusiastically explaining what he'd prepared for us and share a few stories of his many years as a Chef, it's easy to see why this is such a wonderful place - he LOVES what he's doing and it shows in EVERY WAY! Tambellini's instantly shot up to our favorite restaurant!
Been to Jos. Tambelinni's several times before, but not for a few years. Always enjoyed the food and the service/ambience. This time reaffirmed all those feelings. The menu continues to evolve. I had a vegetarian pasta preparation that was well-prepared, presented, and delicious. Reliable favorites, like the fried zucchini and tiramisu, were even better than I recalled. I'm planning to return sooner rather than later.
Most of the food was excellent - zucchini appetizer, house salads (they offered Gorgonzola as an option!), shrimp scampi, dessert. Chicken parm was a bit overcooked. Bread should have been warm. Service was A+++ - our young server was attentive, and his timing was impeccable.
Been here almost a dozen times in the last year. Keep going back to find something not to like Haven't been able to do so. On the upper $$ but incredibly delicious and worth the money. Cocktails are great, a tad high but delicious. They work to accommodate everything you want including moving your bar tab to your table ( love that!)
So many choices of great flavors.
Food was excellent. Great atmosphere and a warm, friendly staff. The Chef/Owner spoke with us and was very hospitable, saying that if we had any special requests we should let him know. We did feel that our server could have been warmer. On previous visits our servers were quite warm and friendly.
It was my birthday and I wanted to try something more romantic. The food and service was amazing. At one point I heard the hotess asking a waiter how long until they finish and to hurry the patron. However, we were never rushed and again it was a perfect evening.
