The Best Pizza in Pittsburgh

You might have a hard time nailing down the best pizza in Pittsburgh. After all, the Steel City has the second highest pizzeria density in all of America. Although New York City and Chicago get all the media attention when it comes to popular pies, the Yinzer (Pittsburgh residents) can hold their own when it comes to pizza. The city concocts unique fusion cuisine - ranging from chipped chopped ham to their take on kielbasa and pierogies. The giant crusts and loads of cheese on their pizzas bring patrons from all over. But where are the best flavor connoisseurs in town sitting down for a slice? Welcome to our Tastemaker Lists. We've gathered data from thousands of eateries across the country to find where OpenTable's most expert and seasoned diners go for a slice. Look at this list of the best pizza in Pittsburgh, and book a spot for a slice to remember!

Even though there’s several locations around the area, BRAVO Cucina Italiana on the waterfront is the only place guests can enjoy a slice while admiring the Monongahela River. Those who look away from this natural waterway encounter décor that espouses fine dining at its best. No one can stop talking about the seafood, steaks, and chops offered here, but everyone also knows they have some of the best pizza in Pittsburgh. Start out with the pecorino cheese dip, but finish strong with pepperoni, margherita, or chicken + spinach pie offerings.

The elegant overhead lighting in Pino’s Contemporary Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar pairs well with the theater-like ceiling – even if the walls and seating give off more of an Old World feel. The cuisine is a combination of Italian and Mediterranean, perfect for those seeking the best pizza in Pittsburgh. Both red and white versions are available, and each pie comes out thin and crispy. Whether guests want the authentic margherita experience or desire to be adventurous with the shrimp and spinach selection, there’s a little something for everyone to enjoy here.

Just like its waterfront counterpart, the BRAVO Cucina Italiana McKnight location offers an unforgettable fine dining experience. The indoor columns and sepia photos on the walls harken back to an eatery right out of Italy. They offer happy hour specials during the weekdays from 4:00 to 6:30, but seekers of the best pizza in Pittsburgh will no doubt be happy at any hour. Their margherita and pepperoni pizzas are local favorites, but the artichoke + spinach dip, which features parmigiana pizza bread, is far too often overlooked.

There’s nothing about Talia Cucina Rosticceria that doesn’t scream unique. The seating conveys luxury, and the art on the walls is transformative. Even the garnish on their cocktails is Instagram-worthy. They offer original and rustic takes on classic Italian fare, and this is what helps them serve some of the best pizza in Pittsburgh. In addition to classic and margherita selections, guests are treated to crab pizza and primavera – the latter featuring a delectable garlic cream sauce. This is one experience visitors won’t soon forget.

The Robinson Town Center is a great place for shopping and entertainment, but there are a fair amount of people who simply show up for the Buca di Beppo located in the area. Some of the décor is whimsical, but other pieces – like those in “The Pope Room” – look like they’re part of a sought-after shrine. Either way, this hot spot features some of the best pizza in Pittsburgh – which includes the margherita, pizza con formaggio, and spicy arrabbiata.

After opening in the early years of the new millennium, Joseph Tambellini Restaurant quickly gained a reputation of offering a real slice of Old Pittsburgh. As it turns out, this wasn’t just in relation to pizza. The art hanging on the walls, elegant curtains, luxury lighting, and white tablecloths all harken back to the time when dining out in the city meant guests dressed in their best and made an evening of it. While the menu at Tambellini doesn’t offer the traditional pizza experience, the parmesan vitello features common ingredients one would expect on their favorite slice. This makes the eatery worth a visit.

There’s a reason why there are so many of these locations around the city: BRAVO Cucina Italiana eateries, including the Robinson location, have long offered some of the best pizza in Pittsburgh. This location maintains the fine dining atmosphere and Italian architecture features that are present in its sister locations. Of course, the pantone yellow color and whimsical signage nestled amongst typical strip mall stores does stand out a bit. Wednesday has specially priced martinis, and the pepperoni, chicken + spinach, and margherita pizzas are all worth writing home about.

After receiving praise from USA Today, it’s no surprise that Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza has picked up steam and opened locations ranging from Florida to Illinois. Fortunately for those seeking the best pizza in Pittsburgh, they also have a location in the Monroeville area. The stone architecture outside is hard to miss from the road, but the inside has a casual atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. Yes – their pizzas all come from a coal oven. Their specialty options include the white pizza, eggplant marino, meatballs & ricotta, and ever-popular Philly cheesesteak.

When it comes to authentic Italian ingredients, Vallozzi’s might be in a league of their own. This is because they’re one of the few – if not the only ­– restaurants that fly in their ingredients fresh from Italy weekly. If this wasn’t enough, the family-owned business has been in operation for over half a century, and both the inside and exterior look like a true-to-life eatery in the Italian countryside. They have a wide variety of pies that include selections such as prosciutto, pesto, Italian sausage, and Sicilian. There’s a little something for everyone!

There’s a ton to enjoy at the Galleria Mall, and BRAVO Cucina Italiana is no doubt among the most popular. After a heavy day of shopping, guests can easily stop by the Galleria location without having to worry about driving to one of the many other BRAVOs in town. Just like at its sister restaurants, visitors can enjoy the best pizza in Pittsburgh while admiring columns and facades that look straight out of ancient Rome. This location offers the margherita, pepperoni, and chicken + spinach pizzas that are a staple of BRAVOs everywhere.

It’s possible to work up quite the appetite shopping at the 52-acre Station Square, and the Buca di Beppo on-site is one of the most popular ways to solve that issue. There’s certainly a reason this chain has landed on the list of best pizza in Pittsburgh twice: It’s because they offer some of the tastiest slices in the city. Sit down among the funky décor and wall-to-wall vintage photos to enjoy pizzas like the bianca white, margherita, spicy arrabbiata, or impressive supremo Italiano.

Although the BRAVO Cucina Italiana location in Cranberry Township is the last BRAVO mentioned on this list, this doesn’t mean it’s not still home to some of the best pizza in Pittsburgh. It shares all of the exterior architectural features of its sister restaurants — along with the beautiful Italian columns inside — but it makes sure those in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh don’t have to drive half an hour for great pizza. Guests should grab a starter of calamari while waiting for their pepperoni, chicken + spinach, or authentic margherita pizzas.
