La Tavola Italiana Restaurant & Pizzaria
Where to Get the Best Pizza in Pittsburgh
This place is literally over the river and through the woods from Downtown, but it’s worth the drive for Nonna Pina’s Pizza, the “grandmother’s specialty": a thick, square-cut pizza with Romano cheese and chunky tomato-onion sauce. La Tavola has been serving up slices for 50 years, so the locals know how to find the practically secret take-out entrance -- for the uninitiated, it’s the unmarked door on the side of the building. Look for the wooden staircase.
How to order: Takeout is available by calling 412-481-6627.
