Walked in and got seated quickly. Great server with a personality that suggested a cheese tortellini pasta with sausage, shrimp and spinach (a nightly special). It came out quick, hot and delicious. Next time im back in Pittsburgh, I will definitely be back.

If you like Italian food you will love this place. Small seating area so reservations suggested. BYOB is a bonus. The dessert menu looked great too.

I appreciated the welcome. Real Steelers joint. Italian on the plate, but 1234 chef is more reminiscent of the Deutschtown location. Exaggerating service, pouring additional water every emptied barleycorn. But it is well meant, and the food is copious, although not as refined as the...More
