If I say “Piccolo Forno,” you probably think, “amazing Italian food.” And not just your traditional spaghetti and meatballs Italian food, but unique, creative, dishes like “Cavatelli di Castagna – chestnut flour and ricotta cavatelli with a squash-walnut pesto, roasted cauliflower and brussel sprouts.” SO GOOD. If you’ve never eaten there, go ASAP! (Note: this is a BYOB restaurant.) It’s my favorite Italian food in Pittsburgh. I normally don’t think of lasagna as something to order at a restaurant – I think of it more as “something I can make just as well at home” – but I make an exception for Piccolo Forno’s lasagna. I don’t know how it’s as good as it is… but it is absolutely delicious.
Last year, Piccolo Forno opened a private event space on the second floor above the restaurant. Perfect for smaller, intimate weddings, this cozy space is warm and inviting. But best of all… you and your guests get to enjoy Piccolo Forno cuisine. I’d be pretty honored to be invited to a wedding here!
Here are some photos featuring the space and the beautiful food too, from Jenn and Paul’s wedding, photographed by Pamela.
