Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came to Pittsburgh for the day for the NCAA tournament games and were looking for a place to eat before Saturday's games. We went in without reservations and were able to snag seats at the bar on the upper level. The bartender provided fantastic service and we split a salad and a Margherita pizza. The salad we split was huge and was really good. The dressing was tasty and perfectly applied and it was a perfect mix of various greens and vegetables. When we finished the salad the bartender asked if we wanted our pizza put in now and then it arrive promptly from the wood fired oven done perfectly. We really enjoyed our experience and will defintely go here again the next time we are in town.

I am writing to express my disappointment regarding the dining experience my party and I had at your establishment on Friday, March 15. We had made a reservation for 7:00 PM to celebrate a friend's birthday, and unfortunately, our experience fell far short of our expectations. Upon arrival, our party of 11 was eager to enjoy an evening of celebration. However, our excitement quickly turned to dismay as several members of our group received cold meals, and others found their pasta dishes severely undercooked. The texture of the noodles was so unsatisfactory that it resembled biting into uncooked pasta straight from the box. This was not the standard of quality we anticipated from your restaurant. Furthermore, the service at the bar was egregiously slow, resulting in prolonged waits for our drinks. While our server, Christian, demonstrated professionalism and attempted to accommodate our needs, his efforts were hindered by the delayed service from the bartender and the subpar quality of the food. Given the prices charged at your establishment, we expected a higher level of service and culinary excellence. It is disheartening to have had such a disappointing experience, especially when we were there to celebrate a special occasion. As loyal patrons, we hope that you will take our feedback seriously and take steps to rectify these issues. We believe that with improvements in food quality and service efficiency, your establishment can continue to thrive and provide exceptional experiences for all patrons.

Had dinner on Christmas Eve 2023. Service was good but not great; our server was the bartender so she was busy. Had artichoke appetizer and was nice and crunchy but sauce not flavorful. I had eggplant Parmesan and it was delicious! Cooked nicely with sauce, cheese and basil. Husband had chicken cutlet with salad and he enjoyed. Chicken fried thoroughly and was tender, he would have liked more dressing on the salad. No room for dessert. Average but tasty. Would try again.

We loved it! Ever since we went to Italy, we have looked for specific menu items before picking a restaurant. Homemade pasta, arancini, cacio e pepe, and Limoncello as a digestive are a must. This restaurant had them all and they were all delicious! Had a nice seat out on the patio and our server was very friendly and accommodating. The homemade mozzarella appetizer was wonderful (light breading and not greasy) and the ravioli was also delicious. Nice wine menu as well. Looking forward to going again!

Truly Italian meal that was done to perfection. Choose a pizza as an anti-pasta then share the primo and segundo. Cacio e Pepe could be served anywhere in the Veneto! Wine list is spectacular. Couldn't be happier with our choice for dinner.

Delicious. I ordered the pappardelle funghi and my wife ordered the gnocchi. They make their own pasta and mozzarella cheese. One of the best meals I have enjoyed in years.

Server was great, attentive but not overbearing. Food was delicious. It was pretty busy on a Friday night so reservations are a good idea.

I don't normally do reviews, but I had to do one for Pizzaiolo Primo. Went twice during my son's graduation weekend and the experience was wonderful both times. The establishment is lovely and spotless; and the service was exceptional. Greeted with a smile from the staff that lasted from start to finish. The meals were delicious, and their presentation is sure to entice you to come back for more. You will definitely leave feeling satisfied with their generous portions. So, if you're ever in Pittsburgh, I highly recommend you pay them a visit. You'll be glad you did. Thank you Pizzaiola Primo for making this weekend extra special for us. Wishing you continued success, from Mama Salvador :)

Excellent food!! My husband had the cheese ravioli and I had a spaghetti with white sauce and lump crab meat special. It was AMAZING!! As soon as you walk into the front door of this place, it smelled fantastic!! Highly recommend!

Perhaps our expectations were a bit too high for this place based on the amount of recommendation it had. The servings were definitely generous and food was solid, in fact I'd say that the appetizers that we had were highlight, because the calamari was cooked perfectly and the salad was delicious, but my 'spicy' Capocollo Pizza was not spicy, not even close, and was missing that little bit extra (maybe it just need less crust) to make it an note-worthy pie. Our server was perhaps just trying to be 'professional' but instead came across as distant and spent way too long figuring out our bill. Perhaps the first place I've ever been to that's refused to split a bill evenly three ways.

Really glad we chose this restaurant to celebrate our late valentine's day dinner. Arrived early and was seated right away. Our server Dawn was very nice and guided us thru the menu for options from food to wine. The Stuffed pepper appetizer was really good with just right amt of heat from peppers. Entrees of chicken parm w/pasta, juicy and crispy and the blackened salmon with broccoli rabe were prepared just right!! Side of homemade giant sized gnocchi made our meal just that much better. Bread pudding for dessert, great texture on the outside, very good. Thank you to Dawn and the(Chef's) kitchen staff for making our dining experience such a nice experience and great evening!! Looking forward to returning soon Grazie, Chef Anthony!!

We sat at the bar as they were pretty busy. The bar chairs were pretty uncomfortable, but the bartender was super sweet. Our drinks were good and the wine list was good. The salmon was great, cooked to perfection. The pasta didn’t seemed married well. It could be because there wasn’t any cheese in it. Nice setting, friendly staff and good food.

We got late reservations on a crowded night. We had fabulous drinks and service. We had a second floor seat overlooking Market Square on a beautiful night. Our food was plentiful and served in a timely manner. Brussels sprouts were outstanding. Caesar salad very good and should be shared as should the Brussel Sprouts. The spaghetti and spicy sausage were just what I was looking for but way more than one human could eat. Great place. Active and attractive crowd. A must if you are close to downtown. F
