The Location right near two major Universities -- University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University -- serves as a major advantage for this wonderful restaurant. The clientele is a mixture of locals, older patrons celebrating special occasions, students, and visiting parents, and families of the students, (This is the reason we ended up here. Two of our nephews attend both the Universities).
We were very impressed with the modern building, the relaxed setting, the simple, but stylish interior, and the sustainable Eco system due to the fact that they grow their own produce. The decor is warm and inviting with huge open glass windows. The old Edison light bulbs along with the overhead brighter lights indoors created a unique and unusual ambiance. The outdoor seating also looked really fantastic. All the employees seemed to be pleasant, warm, patient, caring and attentive.Most of them were young students from the Universities.
We started out with the corn bread cooked with sweetened butter and served in a cast iron skillet, and the fried Calamari. Both were cooked to perfection.and were an excellent choice.The pitchers of red and white Sangria were the perfect mate for the appetizers.
Our main dishes were the pan seared swordfish on a bed of spicy seasoned garbanzos and topped with the freshest of greens, herbs and cabbage, roast beef sandwiches and pizzas. The thin crust brick oven pizzas were really delicious, especially the one created with an unusual combination of barbecued chicken, pineapple and hot spicy peppers.
We were too full to order dessert.
The prices were reasonable for the quality and freshness of the food.
All - in - all, this was a very nice relaxed place.
We will recommend the place to everyone and will definitely visit this place on our next visit here.
