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
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!
Everyone has a bad night and our waiter's coincided with our visit. Took offence at our questions about the menu. Needed reminders to bring non-alcoholic drinks. Slow overall. Food was pretty good and the room is adult but not dull. But, the music is downscale for this ambience.
There are so many other options downtown, we'll try them before coming back.
Gorgeous atmosphere. Impeccable table presentation. Prompt and attentive wait staff. Incredible food. One-of-a-kind dessert menu. Portion sizes are perfect. Great for large gatherings or individuals. Quiet conversation possible in seated dining area. Septate bar/bistro setting for boisterous groups. Easy walking distance to shopping and hotels. Would visit again when in Pittsburgh on business or pleasure.
We were in a rush, due to heavy traffic, and had tickets to the opera. Our waiter was SUPERB in making sure we got our food as quickly as possible. My daughter is vegetarian - and although the options are limited, the waiter steered her to what was available to her.My daughter and I chose the cheese plate- excellent. She had the ravioli and I the gnocchi - both excellent.
Restaurant and food was great. Short walk from the Embassy Suite hotel. My risotto was cook perfectly and my wife's chicken was so-so. She said it was a little dry. My 15 year old son had the mahi-mahi dinner special and he loved it! My 11 year old daughter had the ricotta ravioli. She wanted to lick her plate. (We didn't allow her.)
Service was a little slow at first, we sat with nothing for quite a while before someone finally came over.
The meat and cheese were amazing! And the food was excellent.
We would sit in the bar area next time for a more lively ambiance...plus we enjoy people watching and there is a nice view of the city streets.
This is another one of those good restaurants hidden in plain sight downtown and I'd never really noticed it before since it isn't on one of the bustling streets like Market, Penn or Liberty. The atmosphere is great for a date night but if going for pre-theater just think carefully about your meal so you don't go too heavy and risk a food coma for the show :)
The cocktails were excellent and the wine list also had a great selection. The marinated olives were delicious but a HUGE serving and too much for 2 people. The pre-meal bread was OK but not anything special. The main courses we chose, Raviolo and Pork pappardelle were fairly good and on par with what I would expect from higher level Italian restaurants. The only real disappointment was the Tiramisu as it was sort of meh and lacking a bit of flavor.
Service was good but a bit on the slow side so be sure to give yourself a good ~90 minutes if you want to do apps & dessert with your meal.
I was looking forward to a nice Italian meal. This was not it. The quality of the food, I would liken to a jarred Pasta dinner. The bread-horrible, the ricotta spread-flavorless, and the spice cake dessert-dry, dry, dry! The wine-good. Our server was very nice. Prices are fair-if the food was good. IT WAS NOT!
My boyfriend and I came here for dinner before a show at the Benedum Center. It was a special night for us, so we decided to splurge at Vallozzi's. It was a bit on the pricier side (we are two college kids, after all), so we probably won't make Vallozzi's a habit, but it was a wonderful treat. The food was very good, and the staff was very attentive and very kind. I would definitely recommend this for a special occasion date night!!
