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

The best burgers in the city, but the rudest host ever encountered. She was impatient, we got a drink at bar while waiting to be seated and she rushed us rudely to a table badly positioned despite available tables outside

Went to Tessaro's during the US Open. Close Uber from downtown Pittsburgh in really cool neighborhood. Service was really good and the burgers very, very good. Had a couple good ole Iron City beers with the burger.

I could tell by the looks of this place there is a lot of history, and longevity means on thing in the restaurant/bar arena, 'You are doing something right'... The atmosphere is right out of the early days, with the old fashioned bar, tin ceiling... the menu boast some of the best of the burgh, the burgers are hand cut... More

I have been coming here for years and have never had a bad meal. The food and service is consistently good, fresh and hot as it should be. They have the best burgers in Pittsburgh.
