A few of us decided to try Cioppino in Pittsburgh famous Strip District. I had heard so many good things about this place that I was highly excited to give it a try. But, for me, I only saw a lot of negatives and not many positives.
I’ll start off with the positives: Excellent Service. Our server was really great, very friendly, highly informative about the food, well prepared for any questions we may have had and paid good attention to when our water or wine glasses needed filled.
Nice atmosphere. Cioppino offers a nice atmosphere while dining. Its comfortable, relaxed and a nice place to enjoy a meal.
Presentation: Everything we ordered was presented nicely to us and looked amazing.
Now the negatives: When entering, you enter in between the dining area and the bar. The bar had a band playing which was nice music but way too loud. I’m not sure how anyone was able to even sit and enjoy a drink in the bar with the music that loud. The sound carried into the dining area but wasn’t too bad in there.
The Food: All in all, the food was just OKAY. As a table we started off with the Antipasti Platter, we had a nice mix of meats, cheeses, redpeppers and olives. This was really good and a nice way to start of dinner.
