Ordered the fettuccine with their homemade sauce - it was delicious. Daughter-in-law ordered the chicken parmesan and liked it as well. Wedding soup was equally delicious.

Have been going to Tillie's since I was a child. Their red sauce is unlike any other, so good on any of their pasta dishes or chicken/eggplant parmesan. Local favorite. Very large anti-pasta salads. If you like spicy try the stuffed banana peppers appetizer.

Deciding where to eat with three teenagers and a picky husband isn't easy. I usually end up with one sad sack complaining that they hate our choice. Not the case with Tillie's. My entire family loves going (or picking up take out) from Tillie's. It starts with the bread basket, which the immediately devour and usually ask for more. The house salad is lovely, which makes my husband very happy. Fried Zucchini is thinly sliced and lightly battered, but has a great flavor. The two dipping sauces are the perfect accompaniment. My son loves the wedding soup. I always have a difficult time choosing my meal because they are all so good. My teenagers love the gnocci, we've had the amazing lasagna and ravioli. My husband loves the chicken parm and eggplant parm. I think my favorite is the homemade spaghetti, or maybe it's the seafood ravioli, but I also like the pizza with the hot sausage slices. Yum. My children will actually portion their plates so they have enough to take home and eat the next day. The restaurant is always clean and the wait staff knowledgeable, pleasant and prompt. You cannot beat the value. If you've never been, you should. And if it's been a while since you've been to Tillie's, you need to get back there!! You will thank me for reminding you about this quaint little gem hidden in an old McKeesport neighborhood.
