Folino's Ristorante Pittsburgh Reviews
Folino's Piece of Italy Jun 14, 2009
Just visited this cute little restaurant down on the South Side. At first, we walked in through the door and thought that it was simply a bar, with outside seating, but going through a side door, you come to a nice dining area that opens to the street and is actually quite cozy.
There are some funny quirks about this "Top US Italian Restaurant"... for instance, make sure you get the full menu from the Hostess and not the one pager. If you like fine Sicilian wine, you won't find it here, but the bartender will make a great wine recommendation from what they do have. Be prepared that what you'd like to order on the menu might be replaced with a specialty dish (which will turn out just as good, or even better than what you initially wanted).
Definitely try their risotto = fantastic!
The veal scallopini is also amazing, if that's more your style.
You can't go wrong with this quirky restaurant...and leave room for dessert. I didn't so I can't tell you about it! ;)
