Party of 7, very accommodating and friendly staff. We dined at 5:00 so the restaurant was not crowded at all. I hear it gets very crowded later in the evening. Those who had burgers enjoyed them immensely. Those of us who had chicken (kabob and salad), not so much.

By far the best hamburger I have had in years. Wood fire grilled. Their chicken sandwich is also phenomenal and the wait staff is great. Very cool old style corner bar atmosphere. I've gone and walked right in, and there were times I had to wait in line. My favorite place in Pittsburgh to grab a burger. You cannot go... More

It's a bar for sure, but they do serve one of the best burgers I've had in the 'burgh. We went early so although the bar was full, it was the geriatric crowd coming and going. Looked like everyone was a regular, getting a hug and kiss from the staff before they left. Friendly place. Great burger.

Joined a friend for dinner at Tessaro's. We sat at the outdoor patio. Lively, but not too busy. Great ambience and terrific food.

I was in Pittsburgh for a few days visiting family and they all ranted and raved about how good the burgers were at Tessera's. They were right. This was one of the best burgers I have ever had! I got the Gourmet Burger (half-pound patty with bacon, mushrooms, onions, and pepper jack cheese). This burger did not mess around... it... More

My husband is a native of Pittsburgh and Bloomfield and loves to visit his old neighborhood and we love Tessaro's for lunch. We both had the grilled chicken sandwich and it was fabulous! He loves the atomic hot sauce on his sandwich & fries. Service was great - we had a window seat in the front - great view for... More

A special that night was filet kabob and it was delicious. Tessaro's is a favorite of mine and the food is always excellent and fresh. They always have a chalk board with specials but their menu is classic favorites and literally looks the same as long as I can remember. The place still has the old charm and I love... More

I was told that this was best place for hamburgers in the area. If these were the best I was very disappointed. Average to poor hamburger. The ribs were very fatty and would not recommend them. Park in nearby supermarket parking lot.

I had a burger and it was great but that was the only thing that was. Everyone else's food was bad and the service was terrible. My wife took 3 notes of her food and they asked why she didn't eat it. She said it tasted like the grill and had no flavor they replied well that's the way it's... More
