The hardwood grill makes everything delicious! I dare you to walk past without your salivary glands hitting high gear. A classic. Truly one not to be missed in "the burgh"! Go and enjoy this anchor at the bridge end of Pittsburgh's Bloomfield neighborhood. "Little Italy"

For some reason they take great pride in not seasoning their food. It shows...everything needs salt here, not to mention other seasoning. Good cooking requires proper seasoning at proper times, and you cannot just add salt after cooking to achieve the best taste.

The only thing that I did not like in this place is that they do not seat you if your party is incomplete (even for one person). We had to wait there for 15 minutes even though there are available tables. Their entrance is very...More
