I was here, I liked it, don't remember what I had, and the menu is very strange... Everything is big, everything is fattening, with jelly on it. I go to the strip every Saturday and the lines are always out the door even when it's cold. Is it worth it? Maybe, I wouldnt say this is the best breakfast I... More

My Dad and I had lunch at De Luca's while visiting Pittsburgh to catch the Habs play the Pens (go Habs go!). We stopped in randomly while walking down Penn Ave. We were able to grab an empty booth right away (it was after 1pm and raining out). We were served almost immediately. My dad had the breakfast special (2... More

We went here around 12-1ish and there wasn't a wait. Seems like a typical diner. Not overly clean, but what diner is. I ordered something that came with pancakes and these pancakes were delicious. I love breakfast food and those pancakes were probably the best pancakes I've ever had. Definitely recommend going here and getting some pancakes!

Great food all around, french toast, eggs, pancakes, all very good. We went on a wednedsay at about 8am no line at all. So avoid the weekends, terrible lines on the weekends. The server was pleasant enough no one was rude. Very busy place.

Visited with a large party of 16. We were served in a quick and professional manner. We all left full and satisfied. The seasonal pumpkin pancakes were SUPERB.

First time to Pitttsburgh. The hotel, shuttle driver, everybody we met recommended. We knew this place through FoodNetwork. We had a pleasant experience. Food was awesome. We arrived at 9.10 a.m. Had to wait in line for 30 minutes.

On 12-22 we went to the Strip District for some shopping before Christmas. Usually we eat at Pamela's but this time, listening to all the hype, we decided to try De Luca's. BIG MISTAKE! After about an half hour standing out in the cold we we're able to get in and get a table. After about 10 minutes our server... More

Yes. You might have to wait in a line, but doesn't that tell you something about the restaurant? Our experience....the line moves fairly quick. Everyone is friendly. Plenty of menu options for breakfast. Italian bread is made fresh locally. Coffee is hot. Bacon is thick. Good atmosphere. Simply a great way to start you day.
