  13. Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, USA
    Anthony's slogan is "Pizza Well Done". That certainly carries a double meaning. It is well made and very good pizza, and cooked well done with a crispy crust. (Anthony's really does use an anthracite coal-fired oven to cook their pizza at 800F.) W…

    Legends of the North Shore came with quite a reputation, including a best-of-Pittsburgh restaurants award. But, overall, I did not think the food quite lived up to it. It was good, but not out of the ordinary in its Italian-American fare. We order…
