Good pizza made in a wood fire oven, great beer list, cool appetizers and an interesting wine list. We stopped after a show and enjoyed our meal very much.

“Great Addition to the Cultural District!”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

With so many restaurants in Pittsburgh, you would think, "Why go back to the same place"? But when my husband and want a warm friendly place with great food...we head to Propers. The staff is great and you can see the pride, Suzanne, Proprietress takes in her restaurant. We always find ourselves chatting about food and places we have all visited.

Of course they make outstanding pizzas. One of our favorites if the Mediterranean. On the pasta side, we like the Bacon & Broccoli. My husband appreciates the 30+ craft beers on tap that change regularly, but I like the wine selection and if you like to try unusual cocktails try the Limoncello Collins or Sage Suzanne, Both amazing. Next I am going to try the Cider Snap.

Proper is also a great place to stop in after a game for a drink and snack. Try the house chips or watching your weight, try the Crispy Fried Chickpeas.

You will love the atmosphere and the pizza chef's are fun to watch and the bartenders can be entertaining. Enjoy!

“Tasty pizza, huge beer selection!”
Reviewed December 11, 2013

I make it a point to find a pizza place everytime we travel...I just love pizza. This place was quite busy so we sat at the bar but that was fine. Yummy pizza! We really enjoyed the craft beer selection. Bartenders knew what they were doing...fun to watch.

“Great food very high prices”
Reviewed December 1, 2013 via mobile

First off everything that we got here was great. We ordered a few beers two pizzas and some chips. All of then tasted great but they were not at all worth the money. I truthfully think that they were worth half of what we paid.
