    I can’t stop telling people about the food here, best in Pittsburgh!

  2. Matt says:

    This is the best place to eat in the Pittsburgh area by far. Such a hidden gem which makes it a very unique place to take your significant other or family. Highly recommended for anyone who is considering a new place to try in the Pittsburgh area.

    If your looking for the best Italian cuisine in the city of Pittsburgh, then this is your place. The atmosphere is wholesome and comfortable, food excellent, and our server Steve was a true professional with experience to spare. We appreciate good food, pleasant atmosphere, and excellent service wherever my girlfriend and I dine as we are in the “industry”. Alla Famiglia was above and beyond our expectations. Thank you for the wonderful time.

    My husband and I dined for our one year anniversary Saturday night! It was by far the best food I have had in Pittsburgh! The service was outstanding yet not stuffy! An intimate setting and still very comfortable. We were blown away with the food selection and delightfully surprised by the large portions!!!! The lamb was extremely delicious!!!! This is my favorite place to eat and we will be returning!!! I encourage anyone and everyone to try this restaurant out!!!!

    Dinner at Alla Famiglia was the best dining experience my husband and I have had in a long time. We went last night with a group of 7 friends, and we all really enjoyed it. Everything about this wonderful restaurant was extraordinary, and its obscure location added to the uniqueness of the evening. The appetizers and courses were truly delicious and our server, Don, was excellent. The ambience at AF is so cozy and welcoming. I’m anxious to go back!

    We held my father’s 94th birthday, my brother’s 65th and my son’s girlfriend’s 21st birthday here. There were 16 of us. Chef Jonathan and the fabulous staff truly made it special for all, including printing all of the birthday names on the menu. The food is glorious and the consistentcy of the food far surpasses so many restaurants in Pittsburgh. Treat yourself to a dinner here and Alla Famiglia will become your favorite restaurant!!!!

  9. Had dinner for two Sat night.Table in backroom with fireplace on and Steve the excellent server. OUT OF THIS WORLD. Im a New yorker and this is now my favorite Pittsburgh restaurant by a light year. Food and Service outstanding. We had 2 great bottles of wine and the meatballs to die for. We cant wait to go back. Chef Jonathan, your a genius.

    Attended a Christmas Party at Alla Famiglia. We started off with appetizers and the one that was out of this world was a smoked provolone. What a great taste. You get a pasta dish and that was very tasty. I ordered lobster tail and I was shocked when they set it down on front of me. I couldn’t eat it all and took half of it home for another meal. You would not leave not satisfied. The staff was excellent and were so attentive to everyone. A fun night was had by all. I would definitely recommend your restaurant to my friends. Looking forward to my next visit.

    We ate there several weeks ago after many high recommendations from people we knew. It was wonderful. We went on a weeknight to avoid the weekend crowds (a smart choice). Didn’t get an appetizer are being told repeatedly that the bread, oil and little touches like goat cheese spread provided at each table was more than enough with a complete dinner. The only compliant I have there was the oil was really spicy and I like spicy food. It was pretty hot and I needed quite a bit of water to drink but it was tasty. A few other people I spoke with said theirs was not as hot so perhaps someone was a tad heavy handed with our batch. It was good nonetheless. I had the filet mignon, something I don’t usually order as I think the lack of flavor generally found with filet is not worth the tenderness. I was very pleasantly surprised and ate the entire thing (as Chef noted from the kitchen!). It was melt in your mouth I wish I had another one scrumptious. The best piece of meat I have ever eaten, simply divine. The pasta that came with it in vodka sauce was also excellent and would have eaten a plate of that by itself with a piece of good bread and been very happy. My fiancee had the pasta diablo, a medley of seafood in a savory broth, also with pasta on the side. He loved that and ate every bit of it plus his pasta. I had the pumpkin pie sorbet for dessert which as creamy and delectable, he had the tiramisu which he pronounced as nothing special and something he could get anywhere. Service was okay, not outstanding but the food was worth every penny. Definitely a special occasion place as it is pricey but worth every penny. I can’t wait to go again.

  12. A colleague of mine recently moved to the burgh and wanted to know where to take her husband for his bday dinner, without hesitation I recommended Alla Famiglia. If you are looking for a fine “dining experience” with tremendous food, excellent wine, and a friendly knowledgeable staff, this is the place…. Can’t keep this place a secret!

  13. Melissa says:

    Thank you for such an amazing evening. The service was great. The food even better. I can’t stop thinking about the sauce and meatball. This will be my go to place when family and friends are in from out of town.

  14. John DeFazio says:

    My wife and I have been to Alla Famiglia a few times but were extremely happy when Arlecchinos appeared in our back yard! Now we are only minutes away from the very best Italian Cusine you will find anywhere. My wife and I have traveled to Itlay and Going to Arelcchinos is no different. The food is prepared so well and the experience will leave you wanting to return again and again.

  15. Sara says:

    My husband & I have been coming to Alla for the last 6 years…it is hands down, the best food in Pgh. Service is always amazing and consistent…the food is impeccable. I love this place…I can’t even explain it ūüôā

  16. Erin Parker says:

    WOW doesn’t seem like enough to discribe this restaurant and the food and most definitely the service. Jordan our server was Exceptional. By far the best Italian food I have ever tasted. The signature desert Raspberry Tiramisu was outstanding. I had the Seafood Diavolo & there was enough seafood to feed 2 people. Best birthday experience ever, they even personalized my menu!!!!! I will refer anyone there and will be back again..

  17. Minister Brian Carswell Flannagan says:

    I have been to both locations and I must say the excellence is consistent between the two. I hosted an event of 20 friends and family at Alla and it was a glorious evening to say the least. I love the atmosphere and spirit of this place. The staff is great and made my wife’s birthday party one we will never forget! I will be back over and over again!

  18. Virginia Mangialardi says:

    We had an awesome time on Saturday. We went to Alla Famiglia for my cousin and my birthdays and they printed up souvenir menus wishing us “Happy Birthday”!!! The food was stellar, we had the meatball, calamari, and heirloom tomato appetizers, followed by the salad, pasta, bread and seafood diavolo! Our dinner was stupendous! We even spoke to the owner of the restaurant, he was so cordial and accommodating. ***** (5 Star Rating for sure!) *****

  19. Jim Vitullo says:

    We drove one hour after hearing so much about this place. It was worth the trip. The people were exceptionally nice. The food was fabulous, especially the marinara sauce, which was some of the best I have ever had. It’s not sold in my area so I will have to stock up next time I’m there. Many thanks!

  20. Audrey Kim Howard says:

    We have been coming to Alla Famiglia since 2010. We come to town for the Ravens versus Steelers game and always come here for a fabulous dining experience. My favorite is the Trifolata. A definite great place to have a great meal, the atmosphere is always warm and friendly. See you guys next year.

  21. Melanie & JD says:

    We have been fortunate to travel to many wonderful places around the world and had some extraordinary meals… but we both have to say by far this was the best authentic Italian meal we have ever had. The service was just as phenomenal as the food. The details down to the personalized menu for our anniversary was something we will never forget. A five star rating!!!

  22. Lauren says:

    Food is the best in the city, hands down. Absolutely delicious and warm and inviting atmosphere. Do not pass up.!

  23. Ginny says:

    We had a full day of travel from SF and landed around 9pm – we were hungry! Because there was a insane amount of construction and detours on the road, we were worried we would get there when they closed. We called and explain our situation and they put us at ease right away and told us to come in when we can. We arrived 15-mins after they closed! They welcomed us, took our order and made an amazing dinner. Each cook stopped at our table to see how our dinner was. Our server was sweet and very attentive. The food was spectacular and full of flavor. Keep in mind, the portions are huge. Because we were staying at a hotel, we couldn’t take the leftovers with us which was a bummer. The pasta dishes come with a large, family style, salad. They also serve delicious bread with special dipping oil (so fabulous!). I recommend ordering a few things to share. Enjoy!

  24. Brie says:

    This is hands-down one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The service was great, our food – exceptional. The hand-pulled mozzarella appetizer is phenomenal. A must-go for Pittsburghers and out-of-town guests. You’ll be so happy that you did!!

  25. Tamara says:

    I must tell of the impeccable experience at Alla Famiglia last night! Every aspect was supreme! It is clearly apparent the passion and attention to the entire dining experience. Not only is the food prepared to perfection the staff conducts the evening like a beautiful orchestra. Each course that is presented, the warm towels provided. The perfect timing in between each course. The blend of flavored and fresh ingredients. I cannot compliment this establishment enough. Thank you for such a wonderful dining experience. I will return and refer many friends. A great find for both locals and those visiting our fair city. Gratia!

  26. Toni says:

    I am not one to write reviews, but in this case I must. This was our first visit to this establishment driving an hour from southern PA and I cannot say enough about it! The staff was personable and very friendly. Our server Bill knew this was our first time and he explained the menu to us in fine detail. The stuffed meatball and tiger shrimp wrapped with prosciutto were fabulous, and our veal meal all the way to the pasta were superb! And don’t forget the 3 accompaniments they serve with the bread, delicious! As an Italian, I must say this is a five star restaurant that I cannot wait to introduce to family and friends.

  27. Janet Mosti says:

    Last night ,my family & I dined at the most fabulous restaurant in Pittsburgh. Allafamiglia has the best food, service,& atmosphere of any I have been to. No one can be disappointed in the steak or seafood. It was all cooked perfectly. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

  28. The Broderick Family says:

    With glaring recommendations from other family members, our 12 y/o son wanted to celebrate his dinner at Alla Famiglia last night. I’ve never been rendered speechless during a meal.
    The squid/shrimp appetizer, the GIANT meatball and it’s spectacular “Sunday gravy” started us off on a journey like nothing we’ve ever experienced. The pasta with vodka cream sauce was incredible. The salad course with crumbled gorgonzola had me on the ropes and then our Special of the day, skin on snapper with crab meat and an epic Ribeye came out….to say each was carefully, perfectly and expertly cooked is an understatement.
    Then the Raspberry cheesecake.
    Mama Mia, Alla Famiglia provided us with the most perfect meal from the 5 star service to the excellently created recipes we’ve ever eaten.
    Grazie!

  29. Mac says:

    The Chef..the meal..the experience and most of all our server Valerie was exceptional. Thank you for making this the best dining experience I’ve ever had. 5 stars…..

    This place is AMAZING!!!! It was by far the best meal I have ever eaten next to my grandmothers that was Italian… I’m from Illinois and here visiting relatives… Made reservations for my girlfriend and I, it was 5 stars and should be in anybody’s eyes… I’m honored to say that if you want a quiet and romantic dinner, this is the place to go…. Thank you!

    My daughter and I needed to take a break from the sad event of loosing my uncle (we traveled from Boston) so we Googled a spot in Pittsburgh and up came Alla Famiglia. Entered this hideaway where you are welcomed the minute you cross the threshold. It just felt like the North End of Boston (Italian section.) We had a terrific selection of wines to choose from and I ordered a plate that I feel I can critique with confidence Veal Parm. Tender, breaded just right, though the sauce may have been a bit too sweet it hit just right that night. Daughters meal was a hit and had a nice bottle of vino. The owner had great looking (orange sneaks on) I miei complimenti allo chef. Grazia
