Very slow service and not worth the wait or price. We waited 45 minutes for our food and when it got there it was barely warm. Also my wife's order was completely wrong. The food had good flavor but it was overpriced. The manager did remove my wife's meal from the bill and apologized for the slow service stating they... More

My husband and I decided to give La Capella a try for Restaurant Week. We went for dinner on Saturday and we couldn't have been more disappointed! To start off our salads were small (which is fine) but I had ranch dressing that was more like water. The garlic bread sticks that were served were dripping in grease and stale.... More

Parking is always available, the service is very nice to eat in a nice environment, close to home, there is nothing better than that. The food is great, always coming at the right... More

We arrived for lunch between 11 & 1130am. It was cold outside, and it was cold inside....Either their HVAC system wasn't working or they keep it at a ridiculously cold temperature as it was freezing in this place, which made it very hard to enjoy anything....But, we tried! I had a dish that consisted of angel hair pasta, artichokes, sun... More

The Eggplant Rolattini is very good if you do not mind the poor vegetable being swimming in marinara sauce. The service is always top notch and price wise is on the upper side, but it is ok.

Food was pretty good. We liked the buffalo chicken bites. Reason for three stars is that the kitchen wouldn't put tomatoes on only half of the pizza for some strange reason. Pizza was pretty good too though.

This place is well known by almost everyone in the Fox Chapel area. The owners are locals and the place is in a pretty well shape. Food is nice, a little bit expensive, but then again, serving the Fox Chapel Area, no one will complaint. Love the Eggplant Parmesan, nice wine list and the service is very good.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the 'Burgh. For happy hours, they have a great bar and bartender, James. Often sit and watch sports and talk to strangers who become friends. Good happy hour pricing. We often order an appetizer and then dinner to go home with. Fantastic pizza and lasagna, but one of Todd's favorites is the... More
