We wanted a special dinner for our last night in Pittsburgh. Tambellini's did not disapppoint. If you want a FANTASTIC italian meal with impeccable service, this is the place. Even if Pasta is not your thing, they have GREAT seafood and meat dishes as well. You can tell the regular clients have been coming back for years and the owners... More

Really enjoyed our dinner here! The food and the service were excellent.Crab cakes and sauce were delectable, pork chop was enormous and our guest said the flounder was the best she's ever had. Beans and greens were quite tasty, as was the tomato/basil cream sauce on the pasta and the Victoria Salad. To top it off, the butterscotch pound cake... More

As it celebrates it celebrates its 10th year, I finally had a chance to go here. It was a semi celebratory occasion, and it delivered on that. From the minute we walked in with my adorable grandson the stuff was all over us all the time yet respectful of our privacy. I have told the staff when they called to... More

I've heard about this top-rated restaurant for a while and we finally had the opportunity to try it last night. Our waiter was Chad and he didn't steer us wrong. There were so many delicious things to try that we asked him what he would have as his perfect meal. He thought that was pretty fun to design our meal!... More

We had the opportunity to visit Tambellini's while on business in Pittsburgh. We were greeted at the door like family. Wonderful staff and first class service. The restaurant interior is put together with a touch of class. Now for the food.....Joseph has put together an old school Italian menu. I suspect some trade secrets from Momma. He is passionate about... More

This is my 4th business trip to Pittsburgh and I'd heard about Italian food in or near Bloomfield was the best. So I did some research and decided to try Joseph Tambellini's. It was worth the drive! The bartender makes an excellent classic cocktail. The food is outstanding! You must try the wedding soup, the meatball, and a signature salad(I... More

Pricey for Pittsburgh... $126 for two, plus tip. Food was very good. Fried zucchini, excellent. House salad had an option of Gorgonzola, which was happymaking. Shrimp scampi, excellent. (HUGE shrimp!). chicken parm just ok. Service was A+++.

I eat here a few times a year and everytime is better than the last. The food is amazing. PHENOMINAL. The best Italian, without a doubt, in Pittsburgh. The service is eh, could be a tad better, there's a few servers there with big mouths, I don't enjoy hearing someone talk about other staff or what they're doing tonight while... More

Chef Joseph Tambellini owns the place. So, it's, no surprise: This is THE place for authentic Italian cuisine. Ditto their wine list which is extensive, diverse, with something for every taste, and pocketbook. This beautifully restored Victorian style home comes equipped with a congenial staff, too! All this compels us to plan road trips that are near to, or pass... More
