Excellent burgers served promptly and without much fanfare. The sides are good too. Service was friendly and efficient. Interior is pub like and it appears that many local to the neighborhood dine here. Will be back.

I heard wonderful reviews about the burgers at Tessaro's and decided to take my parents out for lunch while they were visiting. This was without a doubt the worst customer service experience I've ever had. We were greeted by a woman at the front door and told she could immediately seat us. We followed her through three rooms, all partially... More

Had a great taxi driver take us to Tessaro's on Saturday night when it was just impossible to get into many other restaurants. Love the atmosphere, the wonderful lady hosting and great comfort food. Just what we were looking for.

This old time bar was everything you have been told about it. Excellent burger, excellent staff, clean and even the fresh ice tea was perfect.

What a fun little bar with GREAT food! Very "neighborhoodish" so feeling welcome isn't a given but take the time to look around, listen, and EAT! Parking can be a challenge but look for close by street parking. We arrived around 5pm and had no issue with parking or a seat. We sat at the bar and had very fast... More

This place has the best burger in the city and a ton of other great food at reasonable prices ... nice atmosphere ... gets really crowded on Fri/Sat ... but worth the wait for a table

I've lived in Pittsburgh and have been missing out on this place for over 25 years! Not sure why, just never decided to go. Anyway, my burger was absolutely delicious. I also ordered pork ribs to go since they only make and serve them on Thursdays and happened to be there then. I had them for lunch the next day.... More

Excellent take on classic American burgers! The Home Fries are out of this world, while the Red Skin Potatoes (paired with an awesome little cup of melted butter for dipping) are a good second choice. My only complaint is that they do not carry gluten-free buns. Come on, Tessaro's, help us Celiac-ers (and those who have an intolerance) out! They... More
