Great setting on Market Square. Enjoyed sitting outside.Service not so good. Margherita pizza was warm, full of tasteless bubbles and not at all what you would expect from a place that specializes in pizza. I would have said something, but the waitress disappeared. Don't order...More

Excellent salad, 1/2 salad a very large proportion. Pizza full of flavor. Not a lot of toppings but make up for it w flavor. Expect to pay around $50/person w pizza, 1/2 salad and 2 drinks but well worth it.

Welcome to IL Pizzaiolo, home of truly authentic Neapolitan Cuisine. IL Pizzaiolo roots trace back to Pittsburgh circa 1996, with an original credo: create Neapolitan pizza and other authentic dishes using old-world techniques and the highest quality ingredients available. More than a decade later, we still make everything on our menu the authentic Neapolitan way: From our hand-made sweet fennel sausage, meatballs, and fresh pasta, to our fresh mozzarella and antipasto vegetables. If it isn’t hand-made, it’s imported from only the finest artisans, cheesemakers, and Salumeria. Our Mozzarella di Bufala is imported directly from Naples. We cook only Pasta di Gragnano – the finest dried pasta in the world – always to order, always al dente. We bake our authentic Neapolitan Pizzas at 1000° in our handcrafted, wood-fired brick oven for 90 seconds using DOP San Marzano tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil on our perfectly leavened dough. The result is in an authentic Neapolitan culinary experience with integrity. Buon appetito!
