Sit at the bar!!! Families and people who enjoy no room sit at the tables. The staff are lifers and the burgers are legendary. One constant complaint the home fries are super boring & need help...if u don't do fries you'd better step these up. Beer is cold,service no frills. My husband tried the steak salad (1st time) & loved... More

Tessaro's is known for their burgers, so to be honest it was no surprise that we enjoyed a great meal on our most recent visit. The burgers are wood fired, cooked to order, & pretty much one of the best you can find in the city. I've been here several times and my only concern would be that it seems... More

Recently, me, Mrs. Twisted (aka Mrs. T) and our daughter (aka Little Twisted) jumped in the Twisted mobile, set the compass to Liberty Avenue, Pittsburgh, and headed off to Tessaro's American Bar & Hardwood Grill. For those of you not familiar with the joint, Tessaro's is a Pittsburgh icon located in the Bloomfield area of Pittsburgh. It has been there... More

Food: the burger. THE burger. They have an in-house butcher, so you can order it rare if you want. I had it medium rare. Super juicy on the inside, with an amazing wood-fired char on the outside. Hands down, easily one of the best burgers I have ever had. Needed extra napkins for how juicy it was. MMMM. Tip -... More

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.

If you are a single professional looking for a place to have drinks, this is probably a great place to go after work. The bar was very busy and had an attractive crowd. The restaurant was packed. If you have small children, I would think twice. There really isn't room for babies. We couldn't use our stroller and there were... More
