Verona >Village Inn
Our favorite restaurant. We have been going there at least once a week for about 16 years. We don't love everything on the menu but almost everything. Another reviewer JB2009 said their side salad was routine and that is not true. They have crisp romaine lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, shredded carrots and cheese. Nothing routine about that. Their soups are outstanding and their desserts are too. We even love the employees. Try it you will love it.
Exceeded My Expectation. Just heard about this restaraunt even though we've both been around Pittsburgh for a long time, When I saw the place, I wasn't sure that I wanted to go in. It looked deserted. When we called a litte later, the guy confirmed they were open and suggested we make a reservation. I thought, "yeah,sure" but we made it and when we showed up an hour the parking area was packed.! The chicken parm, wedding soup, lasgana and salads were all fantastic and the prices were very reasonable. I saw lots of folks eating straks and fried shrimp which was very affordable so I must go back very soon! Brought dessert home and BAM-super!!!
Bold Statement... Best Italian in Pittsburgh.
Amazing Italian food. My favorite in the city. Check out some pictures with some detailed prices/menu items at my review site:
Amazing italian Food. My fiance and I used to go here all the time to eat but since we moved about an hour away, we only go here when it's for something special. We had made reservations at a fancy place in Shadyside, but I changed my mind and wants to go here instead. It is def. worth the waiting time!
Go here for great Italian!.
Although I am originally from the area, I now live out of town. I have been here a handful of times before, and have always had a good experience. I took my husband here over the weekend (Valentine's Day weekend 2009) and had yet another good experience.
I ordered the chicken parm and my husband had the steak and shrimp. We were treated to a basket of fresh-baked Italian bread warm and moist with butter and garlic. Wonderful! The salads which accompanied our meals were good, albeit a bit boring, just the standard iceberg with cucumbers and tomatoes. The wedding soup was divine. I believe they have had rave reviews on their wedding soup before. Believe it or not, this was the first time my husband ever tried wedding soup. He doesn't even like spinach but he remarked how much he liked the soup.
My dinner had 4 large pieces of chicken. Normally I think a restaurant would have only one or maybe two pieces of chicken. The portions are quite generous. The chicken was lightly breaded and had the perfect amount of cheese. I also had a nice-sized serving of spaghetti with what tastes like homemade noodles. I only wish I had more of the sauce. There was plenty to take home.
My husband's steak was done just as he asked (medium) and the shrimp were ginormous. Truly the largest shrimp I have ever seen, even if that sounds like an oxymoron.
We topped it off with dessert. My husband had theh chocolate mousse cake and I had the pecan ball. We were out early on; again, the portions are large.
The wait staff were friendly and the whole atmosphere is inviting and not pretentious at all. All told, it's a great little restaurant with tasty food, generous portions, and it is quite reasonably priced.
Best Italian Food in Pittsburgh Area. This is the best Italian food in the Pittsburgh area. A straight shot from Pittsburgh on Allegheny River Blvd, or easy access from PA turnpike Exit 48, reservations are needed almost every night. The prices are reasonable, yet the wedding soup is the best I've had, each entree comes with soup and salad, or try the Italian hot sausage + pasta dishes that are out of this world. Wait people are friendly and quick, and all staff really care!
Wonderful Mom n Pop feel. So Pitsburgh Italian.. I have driven by this place for years and never ate there. A friend who just moved to the area asked me to go there with him. I was blown away by the food. Salad, wedding soup, and pasta was very nice. Nice feel in the place. Waitresses were great each time I have been there. Very friendly and they take care of business.
Better Italian food than even Italy!!. WOW!! I can't believe I am the first to review this restaurant, considering it has the best Italian food I've ever had. This is coming form a person who been to Italy several times too. The only reason I can figure nobody has reviewed it, is that they don't want to let anybody in on the secret. "This restaurant has a nice small, cozy, mom-n-pop type feel. Seating is limited, so don't expect to get seated without a reservation. All their main dinners come with a fresh salad, garlic bread, and soup. The have the absolute best wedding soup in the world. The staff is very friendly, and it seems like when you walk in the place everybody knows one another. Don't just take my word for it. Try it out and see for yourself.
