“Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

We liked Esta Esta -- food was reasonably priced, and service was very good. Not many gluten-free options - and kitchen unable to accomodate modifications to menu items. So my choices were limited to one choice - a steak, which was nicely prepared.

A more extensive menu, and some additional allergy-conscious menu items (gluten/dairy) would be welcome!

“Esta Esta in Monroeville, Pa.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2008

We have had dinner at Esta Esta twice. Although the food and service have been above average on both occasions, we have been the only patrons. This is very strange on a Saturday night when other locations in the vicinity had long waits.

“Great food, kitschy decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2006

Chef Michael is a master of sauces! Every dish, from the lasagna smothered in homemade tomato sauce to the rich veal marsala is infused with his delicious touch. I especially love the pasta with shrimp and scallops in a white-wine-garlic-butter reduction. House salads are quite nice--order yours topped with the crumbled gorgonzola and the house balsamic Italian dressing. Wine pours are generous and meals are preceded by yummy, buttery homemade garlic toast. But be forewared, the interior hasn't been touched since the 50's--it's a kitschy mix of just about every cheesy Italian-inspired design motif you can imagine--curly wrought iron railings, stained glass windows, smoked mirrors, red carpeting, wood paneling and more! Ladies beware--the restroom is pitiful! Esta Esta definitely needs to spend a little cash to upgrade here! Stalls are claustrophobic with black shower curtains instead of privacy doors. Though the decor is hard on the eyes, the food is fab! So don't be discouraged. Just make a pitstop before you leave house and come enjoy Chef Michael's scrumptious concoctions. Esta Esta is sure to become your favorite neighborhood eatery.
