great neighborhood Italian restaurant!. After trying most of the neighborhood's restaurants, we've settled on D'Amico's. The food is terrific, the veal turandot is to die for. The best soup I've ever eaten. Tony and the wait staff are incredibly friendly (Gayle is the best). The atmosphere is cozy. We visit Pittsburgh three or four times a year and always make the trip to D'Amicos. Good for romantic dinner or with kids, not an easy feat!
Not what it could be. New to the area, I was hoping to find a great Italian Bistro in "Pittsburgh's Little Italy". Unfortunately, by the time I left D'Amicos, I wished I had just eaten at home. The food is not terrible, but frozen vegetables out of a bag (Green Giant?) at an Italian restaurant is just plain wrong. Great service on the floor needs to be backed up by some inspiration in the kitchen.
Consistantly Disappointing. Dinner at DAmico's was consistant in it's inattention to detail and sloppiness. The meal started with stale bread and watery house Merlot, and moved on to wilted lettuce salad garnished with canned black olives. Soup was very Campbellesque. Our entrees were also disappointing - veal came with a side of frozen vegetables, and the escargot would have been tasty except for the overwhelming rosmary. There was so much that it felt like my dinner had been dropped in a pine forest. THis was a $50 meal, and I expected much more. We'll never go back.
