Way too expensive for the quality of food. We waited and waited for our waitress to return to our table to take our order. The meatball appetizer was cold. They say that their pasta is homemade and fresh, but honestly, the cavatelli tasted like they...use DeCecco boxed and the sauce tasted like Ragu. The $140 dollar lobster tail which they say is farmed once a year from South Africa was tough and the veggies served with it were over cooked. It was as if everything was made days before and barely reheated.More

I was looking forward to dining at Alla Famiglia after recommendations and reading reviews. We were so very disappointed. We were a group of 8 dining. We ordered Veal Piccata, Veal Margherita, & Veal Parmigiana along some pasta dishes. The Veal Piccata was served with...a dark brown gelatinous goop that had mushrooms in. The flavor was of overwhelming salt and pepper. The veal was thick sliced, not scallopini. The entire dish was inedible. The Veal Margherita was breaded so thick and over fried. Again it was not scallopini. That was also how the Veal Parmigiana was served. These dishes were also the size of a dinner plate. The pasta Cacio e Pepe that was served as an entree was about 1 1/2 lbs of pasta heaping in a dinner size bowl. It was ok, but enough to feed the entire table. We also got pasta that had a Vodka sauce that only tasted of sugar. It didn't look or taste like any Vodka sauce that I've ever eaten. Unfortunately, large quantities of food do not equal quality food. The food we were served was inedible and we requested to speak with the manager. The manager was not willing to correct the situation. Our bill was $560.00 for food that we could not eat. I would NOT recommend this restaurant to anyone.More

Just so so don't think I have no idea what I am talking about, I started going to Italy in 1978 and have been going every other year since. I do not hang out in cities, but prefer the mountains and hill towns, particularly around...Christmas when game season is in and truffles are plentiful. I love the cuisines of Tuscany, Umbria, Liguria, Piedmont, Sicily, Calabria and Sardinia. Our most recent trip was to Ganzirri, north of Messina,Sicily. Famous for their cultivation of Mussels, Scampi and Octopus. If you like seafood this is one site to visit. However when we returned home after our holiday our intrepid Governor locked down the restaurants. This was not too terrible, as I am a leared cook. After 3 months however we were yearning for some real Italian food. Please note that I did not say Italian American of which abound in the Pittsburgh area. I had heard of Alla Famiglia and read the stearling reviews, so I decided to make reservations for my birthday. Not being familiar with Warrington Ave. I was a little taken back by the restaurant's location. On street parking was out, but luckily they have Valet parking. We entered and were shown to our table in a cozy dining room. My wife ordered the Seafood Diablo and I ordered the Cotoletta Del Monzu. Since dinners came with salad and pasta we opted not to have appetizers. I ordered an excellent glass of Chardonnay from the Alto Adige region to go with the salad. The salad was an excellent house blend with a vinegar based dressing and a touch of Gorgozola. Problems arose with the pasta course. It had either been overcooked or came off of the steam table, tepid. I am a stickler about pasta being served al dente and hot. This was mushy and I am sorry to say ruined the balance of the meal for me. I have never been served anything like that in any restaurant I have visited in Italy. Even in the states Bravo cooks all pasta to order. Is it too much to ask that a $200.00 meal for two should not be perfect?More

We went for our first dinner out post-covid to Alla Famiglia. A favorite for years we hoped they would comply with safety rules and they did not disappoint. Of course the food was delicious and the service impeccable. We felt safe and enjoyed a feast....My husband had a 16 oz East African lobster tail and said it was the best he ever had. I enjoyed veal with crab. The salad and pasta were excellent and we shared raspberry tiramisu for dessert.More

Lives up to its Reputation ! Great Tuscan t cuisine. First of all, fantastic cocktail list. Appetizer list was amazing we were recommended the smoked provolone with shaved truffles and greens. Aromatic and delicious. Entrées come with the house salad which has nuts dried fruits...and then excellent Islamic dressing with crumbled blue cheese. Then your choice of second course pasta highly recommend upgrading to the Cacio de Pepe. Creamy fettuccine noodles toss table side and a big wheel of Romano cheese. It is to die for I had the grilled bone and veal chop which is a classic my wife had the swordfish with crab meat which was a real surprise. Absolutely fantastic. The desserts were more substantial than I expected we had 2 scoops of House made gelato The pistachio in the dark cherry were to die for served in a crispy edible bowl. The cannoli is also excellent. This place has it all. Great atmosphere great staff they do offer valet parking but make your reservations well in advance it’s tough to get in. We did luck out and get an early reservation by calling the night before and they gave us a seating on Saturday at 4 PMMore

It is summer time, therefore most places are able to acomódate you but you better call them. I don't see why not. But we have always been there when the temperature is way colder than now.

It can be. You may want to give the restaurant a heads up so they can reserve a table in a location that best fits your needs since some of the spaces are more intimate or in a bar area.
