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

I read some of the other reviews and was hesitant. However, the hostess was very nice. It was apparent that she was upbeat, experienced and professional. All four dinners were presented well and arrived piping hot! Delicious cream of Turkey soup. I was pleasantly surprised and very satisfied!!

Tina our server was kind and wanted me to be happy with it, I must have medium rare meat to be happy with a... More

The food was delicious and service outstanding. We were looking for a "local" experience and definitely made a great choice.

Feel like Italian tonight? This place has a good sauce and a wine list to match. The restaurant is a bit dated bit then most of the great restaurants on Italy are also dated, it has all the normal Italian decorations, grapes, stained glass windows and a tacky outside, but the food more than makes up for it. It's an... More

I had a nice meal at Esta Esta with my kids. The food and service were excellent. The price was a bit high, though.
