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
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.
My first time at Vallozzi's Pittsburgh was actually a couple of years ago, for a friend's 30th birthday. I was very intrigued & impressed with the meal selection, as well as the variety of dishes/tastes offered up. After a couple of years, I decided to return this past weekend with my family. Being of Italian descent, we love trying different Italian cuisines all over, ranging from a corner pizza shop to upscale, chef-inspired cuisine. Upon completion of our meal, we all agreed that Vallozzi's is one of the most authentic Italian spots we've ever visited. We love to cook, ourselves, and the best thing that stands out about Vallozzi's: the food has a home-cooked, straight from the old-country taste to it. It's very accurate to many Italian dishes that our ancestors had made for us/that we make on our own. The environment was very serene & relaxing, a perfect blend of mood-lighting & gorgeous decor. Perfect for conversational dinner. The service was great, very friendly, and very informative & helpful. I love restaurants that aren't afraid to mix it up & offer new options every time I go there. From the time I was there 2 years ago all the way to now, I was pleased to see they still offer some of the dishes I remembered seeing at that time, as well as new creations to satisfy those with an ever-changing palate (like myself). Nothing short of the finest Italian restaurant in downtown Pittsburgh. My absolute highest regards.
Valozzi's exceeded my expectations in every way. The seating for our party was perfect, the atmosphere beautiful and sophisticated. The food was exceptional! We had a party of 8 and every single person commented on the meal and choice of restaurant. Outstanding!
This is a great authentic Italian restaurant! My husband and I went early for appetizers and drinks and ended up staying in the lounge for dinner. The server was fantastic and crafted an appetizer tray to our specifications. Everything from start to finish - we had dessert, too - was fantastic! I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are visiting Pittsburgh.
I don't know...I had high expectations but was somewhat disappointed with the food. My salmon was almost raw - in all fairness, the waitress didn't ask my preference and I didn't think to clarify that I'm not a fan of raw fish. She probably should have asked. In hindsight, I should also have sent it back. My husband had the Osso Bucco which looked good. He seemed to like it. The pistachio cake was a little dry. I know it has had good reviews and I might give them another chance but I was underwhelmed by my first time there. Great service, though -
We were there for lunch after a college graduation with 14 people. Appetizers were good and great to share. Lunch selections we tried were ok - gnocchi, panini, chicken milanese. Wasn't a spectacular meal - but it was also just lunch. Server was very good though - very attentive and patient with our large group!
