Italian
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 has recently joined a mere 1,200 restaurants worldwide as a recipient of the Wine Spectator Magazine's Best of Award of Excellence and is the only Italian restaurant in Pittsburgh to receive such an honor. 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.

    My experience of Vallozzi’s restaurant began entering the Valet Parking lane where I was immediately greeted by a young man who cheerfully parked my car. My guest and I walked through the front door of the restaurant and we were instantly seated, served and treated like royalty until we finished our meal. So here it comes….impeccable service, outstanding food, drinks/cocktails and a VERY long wine list covering every region of Italy…. all add up to - “A fine dining experience “. Will I go back? Definitely! YES…treat yourself and dine here!

    This is a MUST for dining in downtown Pittsburgh. Decor and ambiance is lovely, modern, classy. Restaurant staff is top notch, professional, friendly. The food is absolutely outstanding. It is one of the finest restaurants in Pittsburgh. The salmon was perfect and likewise for the seafood risotto. Highly recommend dining at Vallozzi's.

    In a word … Awkward. Hostess was confused, waiter distracted. People at the next table were very loud and disjointed and the waiter made some mistakes with their food so he was fawning over them. My entree, mushroom ravioli, was literally tasteless. As if someone opened a can of low sodium consommé and poured it over ravioli. Watery and bland. Very surprised as waiter recommended it. Ironically, my husband’s was too salty. Don’t think we’ll return. 🫤

    First visit was very good. Second visit average. Veal was dry, risotto good, pasta good, tiramisu did not have flavor, torte was heavy and nothing special. Service was good both times.

    Everything from the time we entered to when we left was outstanding. One critique - when cleaning tables it's probably not best to spray the cleaner on table in the direction of the people sitting right next to it. Albeit minor, I got over it and enjoyed my dinner and the service was excellent!

    An Italian restaurant at the time they opened at 5:00 had no beans and greens available to order. We didn’t get any bread served. The food was OK but not great. We have come here many times but the food in recent years has consistently gone downhill. I think we’re done with Vallozzi’s.

    The service was good, food was good. Pasta was a little too Al dente for my liking but that’s better than overcooked. Also got some secret gnocchi in my pappardelle which was very good (I’ll order that next time). All six of us enjoyed it except for one thing. Wth is up with the nickelback playlist in an upscale Italian restaurant?! $50+ a person deserves a little more than that. It was really distracting. I will come back if they’d agree to change that. Put a tacky Sinatra album on for christs sake. Something OTHER than nickelback, hinder and creed. It’s bad!

Server was very attentive and made sure that even though members of our party arrived late, we were able to enjoy our meal and have time to make the show! 10/10! Thank you for a great experience and a wonderful night out! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    For being a fairly new restaurant in town, I was expecting better service, and more attention to detail on the dishes served. It was at least 15 minutes before we ordered drinks, and another 15 minutes before my cup of coffee arrived. Good attentive service is important to me, and would prefer to spend my money somewhere else next time.

    We are native Pittsburghers now living in Florida who come to Pgh to celebrate Christmas with friends and family every year. As part of our tradition, we attend the Christmas Market, view the tree and ice skaters in Market Square, and dine at Valozzi's. I make our reservations many months in advance and request a nice table for 4 people not in the center of the floor. This year we arrived and were shown a tiny table in the center of the floor. I very nicely (having been a server myself years ago I am VERY careful about how I treat and speak to staff) explained what I requested months ago and was met with extreme rudeness that in no way matched my discourse with the young woman. We did receive a table to our liking and our server and food were wonderful. Just no excuse for the eye rolling, stomping and very bad attitude from the hostess.

    It’s ok, not great. For the $$ we paid it should’ve been fantastic. We were hoping to enjoy our cocktails and appetizer before ordering dinner but the wait staff wasn’t very patient. The checked with us every few minutes, and wanted to clear the appetizer leftovers but it was bread which we wanted for our meal. And then after our meals arrived they were a little scarce. The cocktails were excellent, the food so-so, the service adequate at best.

    It was a special occasion in that it was a get together with a close friend I hadn’t seen in ages. Everything was excellent. This was my second time back to Vallozzi’s because I had such a great time during my first visit for a business meal. Prices and selections are great. I love the menu options. Service top notch. The noise level was moderate making it easy to have an intimate conversation without shouting. I would definitely recommend.

    Had reservations for the bar area on a Saturday night only to find when we got there that the bar was closed for a private party. Closing the bar on your busiest night of the week didn't seem to be a wise decision. However, our reservation was preserved for the dining room and the hostess was very understanding and accommodating while we waited to be seated. Kudos to her. Once seated, the four of us shared a variety of plates and found the arancini, tuna carpaccio, and rolofo (?) pasta dish to be amazing. We had a fantastic waiter named Matt who made our dining experience very enjoyable. Great staff, great food, great restaurant but dumb move on the bar closure.

    Very disappointing. My daughter just started college there and we were hoping to find a place to revisit when we visit her. Nope. Worst pasta I've had in years! At least the foccaccia bread was decent. Otherwise this was an overpriced debacle. Server was even odd.

    Everything was very good. We had several courses and requested they come quickly since we were seeing a Holiday Concert after dinner. Only real mentionable less than ideal thing during our visit, no freshly grated italian cheese offered for our meals. Im sure its available had we asked but as I said..a minor mention.
