Over the years we enjoyed so many "First Friday Dinners" with Larry, owner and chef of Enrico's. The back of his shop in the Strip District only holds about 35 people. He goes shopping early that morning and purchases the freshest food he can find. It's a 5 course meal. The menu is unknown until the time of arrival..It's a... More

Some of the best biscotti ever and quite a selection with and without fruit and nuts which I love. The heavenly aroma greets you at the door and just makes the experience wonderful. Try the chocolate dipped macaroons...they're like crack!

Tried the Buckeyes and salted caramel biscotti; both were delicious. Busy place on a Saturday morning; be patient and respectful of other shoppers in this small space. Would like to return to try more of their goodies, and to eat at the darling indoor/outdoor restaurant along the side of the building. We just bought goodies from the store, but Tripadvisor... More

I went there with my wife after shopping in the vicinities. The place looks promising at first, but that feeling doesn't last. We ordered a plate of cheese, bread, and meat which felt like eating left overs. The wine was terribly poor too.

We tried Enrico's Cafe today for lunch after shopping in the strip. What a disappointment! I've always heard how good the biscotti was, so when we saw they had coal oven pizza, my wife wanted to give it a try. I ordered the margherrita pizza and found it to be bland and nearly tasteless. The crust which in my opinion... More

We stopped by Enrico's for some morning sweets and espresso while on vacation. I had heard great things about it from others who had visited or had previously lived in the area. We had prompt service, but it did not live up to the hype. Both the coffee (espresso and a cappucino) and the biscotti were average. The coffee seemed... More

I think they only do brunch on Saturdays, but worth the inconvenience. Service was very friendly and helpful, although the actual dining area is quite small. I ordered a coffee, chocolate almond biscotti and the strata. The coffee was very nice, but a little disappointed by the biscotti, just average I thought. The real star was the strata. Not your...

Stopped there because my wife loved the biscotti we got on last year's trip to Pittsburgh. I saw the arrow for the restaurant and saw the 4 outside tables in the alleyway and at first thought they were places for people to sit and eat the bakery purchases. I walked a bit further and found there really was a restaurant... More

These wearied travelers were delighted to find this gem in the heart of Pittsburgh! The service was incredible (we were even given a free cookie for my son after stories were exchanged), and the biscotti was...well, worth naming a store after!
