Great Italian food

The place is dated inside and out but after tasting the food "who cares"? Very good stuffed banana peppers and the best sauce in Pittsburgh without a doubt. You must visit this place if you are in Monroeville. I drive 40 mins each way and its well worth it.

Reminded me of the restuarants I had visited in Italy a few years ago, Ambience and Excellant Service by a waiter named "Jordan" who handled about seven tables with large parties by himself with patience and attentiveness.

Really basic food and is over priced. Waiters were nice but food was very dissappointing. I did like the seafood bisc I called to order takeout a few weeks after my initial visit they discontinued it abd the woman seemed very annoyed to take my order and was quite rude and rushy.

Bartender made a great drink and was very friendly. We only had wings but they did the job. And if they are indicative of the rest of the food then it's a great place to eat.

I had read the reviews on this restaurant which said there was good food but warning potential customers that the decor. I ordered a green stuffed green pepper with mashed potatoes. Very good. My friend ordered regular spaghetti with meatball. She enjoyed it but said it was not anything outstanding. Our server and water refill her was very attentive. However... More

When I want a satisfying Italian dinner, I am never disappointed by choosing Esta Esta. Mike and his staff make satisfying my hunger for a delicious Italian meal their goal every time I go there.

This is a special place that I have not been to in a few years. Still one of the best local establishments you find. Great selection. A must try

Admittedly the place is a little worn looking, but the food is outstanding. Wide selection, moderately priced, excellent service, never crowded. Salmon has been described as better than in Norway. Chicken Romano melts in your mouth. As good as any I have had in Italy. Daily specials. Drinks moderately priced. As I said, a hidden gem that often looks as... More

We often visit Monroeville Mall and have passed by this restaurant countless times. I'll admit the décor is a bit dated inside and out, however, the food and service were very good. So, whenever you are driving on the Miracle Mill highway, stop here and eat. It will be worth it.

This is your prototypical 1950s Italian restaurant. In fact, the sign outside says "since 1955" and it seems that nothing has changed since then including the furniture, decorations, lighting, and menu. No yuppie dishes here -- only the standard meatballs and linguini, eggplant, lasagna, ravioli, etc. The service was very good, but it was 7:00 pm on a Sunday night... More
