  1. Have you been to Luigi’s in Bellevue? Delicious food, generous portions in a family-friendly neighborhood storefront restaurant. You won’t be disappointed, or go away hungry!

  2. If you make the drive to Mercer County, Combine Brothers have great Pasta with numerous family recipes of sauces. Hermitage, Pa. Generous portions!

  3. If you haven’t had the Spaghetti and meatballs with grandma’s sauce at Piazza Talarico, you haven’t had the best in Pittsburgh.. This place is awesome!! Authentic southern Italian food and homemade wines. I have been in Pittsburgh for 20 years, have eaten at the majority of Pittsburgh Italian Restaurants, and none come close. The fried zucchini is also the best I have ever tasted. They are relatively new; only about 1 1/2 years old, but you really have to eat there before judging the best spaghetti in Pittsburgh.
