What travellers are saying
- I’ve been here a few times, it’s an interesting little restaurant area, with a hotel along the waterfront. There’s a large pay parking lot, which would be nicer if it were free or validated. It’s quite a walk from the lot to the restaurants.
Not bad, nit my favorite place to come though.Written 17 February 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- Love to visit this market anytime in town. Beside the pasta they have an abundance of cheeses and meats and employees who know their stuff.
Sauces, olive oils, cookies, candy, spices, just about anything you need, they have it.
Watch the hours for closing.Written 31 July 2023
- Went to Artifacts for a party. Owner is the nicest guy ever and has so many awesome stories. The place is two floors of cool stuff-African masks, circus posters, antiques, amazing furniture (new and old) and so much more. It's the kind of place to do multiple laps in because you'll see something new each pas through. Be sure to look up down and all around there is awesomeness everywhere. A must see!Written 17 July 2016
- Enjoyed browsing through large inventory of lovely antiques, jewelry and mid century modern furniture, in this finished warehouse space situated in the strip district of multiple markets and restaurants. Proprietors very nice to deal with.Written 11 October 2021
- This is a quirky and interesting art gallery gift shop located in one of the old original houses on the South Side of Pittsburgh. You enter the front door greeted by a friendly clerk, wind your way through mobiles, jewelry, cat toys, and fine art to go up the mezzanine where you find handmade greeting cards, photography, unique masks, baby clothes (dyed, knitted, crocheted...), and other paraphernalia. Continue back to the kitchen - yes, it's a fully equipped kitchen - where there are aprons, hand stitched napkins, coasters, painted tiles, and more. Or go upstairs for large scale paintings and photos, CDs, vintage clothing, and other knick knacks. The shop has over 100 artists making work ranging from soda can tab boxes to African American paintings to Italian plastic jewelry to hand pulled lithographs to original glass works. It takes a little time to take it all in but if you do, you'll feel like you entered a treasure chest and may walk out with a few of your own! The prices are very reasonable and much of the work is locally made. The photography was mostly local and best for those with ties to the city, but some were general such as the barges on the rivers or flowers. Bring cash or a credit card, but mostly bring your imagination and wonder.Written 5 January 2016
- 5th Avenue Place is close to the hotel in which we were staying. While exploring the immediate area I happened on this shopping mall. There are a number of specialty shops. My favorites were St Brendan's Crossing and Laurie's Hallmark. St Brendan's Crossing carries very nice garments for men and women, Hand fashioned shawls, glassware, children clothes, etc. The hand fashioned scarves and shawls were beautifully done, I purchased a scarf and a shawl and a small clutch bag.
Laurie's Hallmark is the best Hallmark I have seen in a very long time. She carries a vast array of cards, clothing, bags, candy made in Pittsburgh, children's toys, figurines, etc. Really great shop, I went back 3 times. There is also a very nice food court with Au Bon Pain, Charley's Philly Steaks, Flamers, Fresh Corner, Sbarro and Wok & Grill. Welcome Pittsburgh tourism shop. Caffe Amante fine dining. Also Fifth Avenue Beanery and PNC Bank. Other specialty shops: Avenue for women's clothing, Crystal River gems, Faber, Coe & Gregg Magazines, Katie's Kandy, Visionworks and Wallace Floral. Well worth a visit.Written 28 June 2016

- My husband and I visited Gary and made our own ornaments. We had a blast! At first my husband was skeptical, he didn't know if it was something he'd like. He quickly changed his mind when we walked in the lobby and saw the beautiful artwork Gary has created. I'm 100% doing this again!!!!Written 24 December 2015
