Excellent lunch

I had jury duty and decided to treat myself to a nice lunch. I was not disappointed. The chicken picatta was excellent and came with a side of pasta and choice of soup or salad. The wedding soup was delicious. I would definitely return. In addition the service was excellent.

This is not a fancy restaurant. It is in the basement level of the Law & Finance Bldg on Fourth Ave downtown. But it is my favorite because the food is so delicious, the atmosphere so friendly, and the service so attentive. It is usually very crowded for lunch and is only open until 7 pm for dinners, but it... More

My wife and I decided to make our first visit to the Pittsburgh strip district and then go to Storms for dinner. The waiter was really nice and answered a lot of questions for my wife to identify gluten free menu items. She decided on Chicken Marsala and I had the English style Spots. For an appetizer we shared an... More

We visited Storms for dinner with a coupon. It is in the basement of the Law & Finance building. The table seemed to be missing something, there was no candle or flowers and the first thing I noticed was that the cutlery was really cheap looking. I started to get a bit worried. When we asked to order a bottle... More

This was my first lunch visit with a girlfriend. I checked Groupon and noticed that the online deal is for dinner only and is for an Italian meal. Upon entry into an office building you turn right and then head down a long staircase to get to the restaurant. Reservations are a must and when I arrived I could see... More

Had a groupon and upon a friends good review , decided to give it a try. This hidden gem has been open since 2007, who knew.? Great service and exceptional food. The only disappointment was the dessert. The only made on premise dessert was Tiramuse which they ran out of for dinner. Our groupon was missing the bar code and... More

I went there for dinner with my family, prices are average ,they don't have parking but no problems as you can park in one of the garages around the corner or on the street. The surprise when the bill came they already added service charges (20%... More

I ate there for lunch with a business party. The food was pretty good, layout of restaurant is down in the basement of a building by city hall, if you are claustrophobic you may not like it, but I had plenty of room. Nothing amazing but good Italian food.

Enjoyed a marvelous early dinner in this amazing downstairs restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was even better! My wife met me downtown where I work prior to a 1900 meeting at carnegie mellon, so we stopped in about 1715. We were met by the attentive staff who quickly showed us our table and had wine for her... More

If you like really good food, great service, and good value, you will LOVE Storms. You will need a reservation between 11:30 and 1:00 but if you can go a bit later, or if you go for dinner, you will be fine. Try their Spots or their Pasta Scalia. YUM.
