“A Pittsburgh Institution”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Go to Tessaro's, have a burger and a beer and partake of one Pittsburgh's classic institutions. It is always crowded, noisy, and not a place to impress a date. Enjoy.

“Good college budget food.”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

This is a small place filler with yinzers and sports fans. The wait-staff call you "hun" and, like most people for Pittsburgh, give directions based on landmarks that don't exist anymore. It is good place to grab a bit if you're in Bloomfield after drinking, or any other time really. Overall, it is a hidden gem.

“Great Place”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

I live nearby. This place is great. The staff is friendly but slightly rude... hey, it is Bloomfield. That is par for the course.

Reviewed May 14, 2013

Tessaro's is the place to go to experience great Pittsburgh atmosphere. The hamburgers are their trademark meal.

You feel entering in a European family owned restaurant.
The food is good and everybody is nice in the place.
