About Vallozzi's Pittsburgh
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
Vallozzi's in Pittsburgh, PA is an outstanding restaurant with a wonderful staff. The food is fresh hot and very tasty. From the cocktails to the dessert you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The cocktails are made with fresh fruit juices not out of a bottle when available. The Bartender is top notch. The chef is always ready to please his guests. If you get a chance put this restaurant on your must visit list. Make a reservation on the weekend. Quick tip ( try their pizza it is to die for) Rick has been our waiter the last two times and he is exceptional!
Always a great place to have a business meal where you don't have to worry about others sitting near overhearing your conversation. The food is always good and the menu is fresh. Sure miss the four tasting lunch that gave such a nice variety of their delicious food. Hope to see it back again!
We are newer to Pittsburgh, and are used to Italian restaurants in NYC and Boston. Vallozzis had such potential to be amazing. We loved the dining room and the overall fine dining atmosphere. However, the food fell short of our expectations and was not worth the expensive price. The veal dishes we ordered were not melt in your mouth quality, and the marsala was actually not a true Italian recipe. It had peppers and onions in it, which had somewhat of a pickled flavor. The homemade pasta was delicious, so I would only stick to those entrees. The staff was wonderful and very attentive. The bread and homemade ricotta was delicious. We were just very disappointed overall, at any price, but especially at this high tab.
I found this on OpenTable and decided to give it a try as I was in a mood for Italian food. As I got there early I sat at the bar and had a cocktail which was mixed to perfection and enjoyed some light conversation with the bartender.
Because of some local traffic issues one of our dinner guest was late but the restaurant politely held our table. We are then seated and greeted by a very friendly waiter who had a good knowledge of the wines. We then proceeded to order where I had an arrangement of fresh mozzarella ricotta cheese and smoked mozzarella all of which I enjoyed. I ordered the seafood risotto which was perfectly seasoned and the proportions were perfect
I had veil parm. It was as tough as nails. I actually took about 1/2 of the meal home with me but decided to trash it due to how tough the veil was. You think it should have been as tender as a good stake but not. The accomplishments were so-so, not worth the $$$$$ paid. So sad as the waiter staff and place was great. We will not be returning anytime soon.
Food is great but we think that the drinks are so small for the price. Both times that we have been there recently we were very disappointed with the drink sizes. The mixed drinks are about the size of a shot and the wine poor is very small.
If they fixed that it would be one of the best places in Pittsburgh
Date night with the wife. Nice atmosphere, Shrimp Diavolo with homemade pasta was excellent-just the right amount of spice. Wife had Risotto Di Mare with very succulent shrimp and scallops. Great wine and beer choices. Will definitely return when we come back for Steeler or Pirate games.
My wife and I had dinner here before going to see "Mama Mia". We were 15 min late for our 5:15 reservation, but that was no problem. We asked for a table outside because it was such a lovely evening, and that was really nice too. It was a bit noisy when the buses went past, but that didn't last long and really didn't matter to us. The food was excellent; the portions were generous; the service was very good too.
My wife and I spent time there celebrating her 60th birthday. We found the restaurant to be cozy, romantic, and relatively quiet (I have a very serious hearing issue). They were very accommodating to our needs. The food was very good along with the service. We would strongly recommend this restaurant to our family and friend.
My wife and I are from Greensburg, and visit Valozzi's there quite often. As we looked for a place to wear for our Anniversary before going to a concert, I found Valozzi's Pittsburgh, and read some positive reviews, so we decided to try it.
We couldn't have been more pleased! The food and service was fantastic! The wine list is REALLY extensive. Not being super in to the wine scene, I picked the Dragon's Tooth" Red from California, which was great!
We had the Burrata for an appetizer - a MUST! It was so good. For entree's my wife had the Salmon, and was very impressed with it, while I had the Gnocci - an Italian staple and well done here with a sausage sauce.
The menu has many of the familiar dishes that have made the Greensburg Restaurant a local favorite, but the Pittsburgh location has a more modern vibe and some updated dishes that are all it's own.
We are looking forward to a return visit there!
We went here before a show a few months ago. Food was ok. Service was slow.
My coworkers and I go to different places for lunch and tried here (my second time). Food was ok. Risotto was bland. Service was great. I would only go back to the bar but not for food.
Our server wasn't over-kind (didn't smile much), but she was hospitable, and attentive enough for us to converse without intrusion. This is a great place for a date night. The restaurant has two areas for dining: the more formal area (where we sat), and a bar area, which is where we had drinks the last time we went (prior to dinner). And, most importantly, the food was delicious! :-)
This was our 3rd time at Valozzi's & we chose this for a special occasion, celebrating a wedding engagement. All I can say was that this experience, as those of the past, was OK. Waitress was very responsive, food was good, but Bolognese on the pasta was mediocre (no salt/pepper on table so intent was to dine as is). The veal parm was also somewhat boring. Can't really determine why these dishes weren't up to expectations, but something was missing. For the price charged for Italian cuisine, one would expect a finer product. Carlton's & Bravo's bolognese are surprisingly superior. Is the 3rd time the charm? Not for us this time.
