Excellent food, service and atmosphere. They always make each visit special!!!!! We tried a lunch special and a salad and as usual were not disappointed. The proprietor Pat is always friendly and makes ya feel like family.

“Excellent place to eat and greet...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Great place to meet with friend or business. The staff is always friendly and the food excellent. If you are under a time constraint, such as having theater tickets, they will get you served and out the door, and you would not even feel rushed!

“Love Love Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

My parents took me here for the first time a few years ago as it had become a regular hotspot for them. Now, I can't stop going.thebfood is fresh and made to order so it allows you time to enjoy yourself with company. I love the pasta pillows and their interesting twists on cheesecake. The cheesecake alone beats that of the Cheescake Factory for those that are in to that rave. Chek it out for a casual dinne or date night. I never had a bad meal

“A gem in a sea of mediocre restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We don't go to the South Side of Pittsburgh very often, but when we do, it is mostly to go to the 17th Street Café. And each time we go there, we marvel at how good it is and resolve to go back again soon.

This is a relatively small restaurant that manages to put out high quality and excellent food. We have always been impressed by the staff and the excellent kitchen.

We prefer the back room because it is quieter than the front, but with a place that is this popular you take a table when it is available.

Now, we just need to remember to go back soon before we again forget how much we enjoy the Café.
