About Vallozzi's Pittsburgh
Pittsburgh, PA 15222
Family owned and operated for over 50 years, following in the footsteps of Vallozzi's Classic Restaurant in Greensburg, PA. We use fresh, quality ingredients, as well as Italian meats cheeses flown in from Italy every week. Our wine list is extensive, with many wines available by the glass and by the bottle. 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.
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 Ratings and Reviews

Have eaten here a number of times. Tonight was disappointing, especially considering we had out of town guests join us. 1) it was 14 degrees outside and they couldn't keep the front door closed and there was no vestibule so the cold air was blowing in straight back to our table. 2) one of my guests got the same exact entree as me but you would have guessed I had ordered from the children's menu because my portion was literally half the size. I finished mine still hungry while my guest had to get a doggie bag for his leftovers. Our server did a very nice job but between our party and the others seated nearby, with all the complaining about the cold air, you would have thought a manager would have come over to apologize or they would have given us dessert or free coffee after dinner.

Unfortunately, exterior door malfunctioned on a 5 degree evening. Artic air blasted through much of the meal. The hosts were too busy with coat check, etc to adequately deal with it. I personally got up 3 times and shut the door, from a table across the room! Unfortunate waitress apologized (two large unhappy tables in our area), but mgt ineffectual, acted like if he didn't acknowledge we wouldn't notice!

Beet and squash salad was horrible and we LOVE salad.
Reservation time and special request was dismissed. We were told our table was given away "because we were late". Fortunately, we had the name of the person we spoke with and time we made the adjustments. Hostess was then accommodating. Meal was marginal for the cost. We'd been there 4 other times and with all the great places to dine in Pittsburgh we were disappointed. We will not return.

While shopping for Christmas made a reservation for lunch at Vallozzi's. Although a little expensive for lunch the food was excellent and the service could not have been better. Have visited here one other time for dinner and was not disappointed.

Slow service, took an hour to get served even tho restaurant was half full, with no apology or acknowledgement. . Arancini was tasty. Everything else was mediocre. Papparelle dish unddrseasoned. Spaghetti with marinara over cooked (!!!) and sauce was watery, ragu underwhelming. Overall disappointing for a restaurant at this price level. Decor very nice.

Always a favorite. It feels like home. The staff is very accommodating and attentive. I would come here every day if I wanted to weigh 800 lbs... The food is always very good and the options allow for a variety of tastes. I would, and do, recommend Vallozzi's to anyone.

Food was out of this world! Ate so much of the antipasta and mozzarella bar, we didn't have room for the delicious entrees! Service was impeccable, from the moment we walked in to the time we stepped out the door. Would recommend this to anybody. Not cheap, but definitely worth it!

We felt welcome by the staff at Vallozzi's. After a couple relaxing per-dinner drinks at the bar we were seated in the main dinning room. Our server was prompt and offered great menu explanations and recommendations. Following the recommendations of other dinner's we started with the ARANCINI, oh my wonderfully different and so delicious. also enjoyed the soup of the day a beef strew, very delicious and tasteful. I enjoyed the PAPPARDELLE BOLOGNESE and I would have never imagined having a pork dish that would just melt with every bite. For the Mrs, the shrimp and scallop risotto, cooked perfectly and full of flavor. We both were impressed with our portion sizes. We will definitely be headed back to Vallozzi's, their menu is full of wonder.

I am a repeat customer to Vallozzi's having gone there prior to attending shows in Pittsburgh. They never disappoint: the service, atmosphere, and quality of the food make it a wonderful experience no matter what the occasion. The prices were reasonable and the menu had a nice variety of items. I definitely recommend it!

First of all, I LOVE Vallozzi's...the food is excellent. It's one of my favorite Pgh restaurants. Having said that, I was disappointed that the crab cakes (I think the BEST in the city, no matter what anyone claims!), which used to be served on a fabulous asiago cheese corn (which gave it just the right texture and sweetness) was now served on a squash puree, with a squash and kale salad. I was so disappointed it I didn't order it. And then the beet salad I liked, had also changed....and again served with squash...and I just couldn't imagine the textures of beets and squash...so didn't order that either. I IMPLORE Vallozzi's to change that crab cake back! OK..so I (begrudgingly and unhappily) had to order something else. I ordered the Parma salad, although I didn't seem to find any crispy prosciutto in it, and the Orecchietti which was really fabulous.
