We love the thin pizza and always enjoy coming here. The servers have been around for 20 years. Great little pizza spot.

In Pittsburgh on vacation, out walking and discovered this place. No tables because of lunch crowd at noon. Walked around and came back about 25 minutes later and had open table. Well worth the extra walking around. Ordered a white pizza with pepperoni. Delicious!! Even with the amount of people to take care of, the staff was friendly and quick... More

Great Italian place downtown to grab lunch or a quick togo. I was disappointed in the soup and salad but the pizza was worth the trip. The only soup they had was Italian Wedding soup and it was OK. The salad was basic at best and the dressing was a premade package. Thought they would have a homemade dressing but... More

I stayed at a nearby hotel when I found Villa Reale. The pizza was hot and delicious. This is old-school, uncomplicated pizza at it's finest from a tried and true family recipe. Good for families, couples, anyone. Fast and friendly service too. Enjoy!

Villa Reale is definitely better than Domino's, Pizza Hut, and all those other nationwide franchise fast-food type pizza places. It may not be the best pizza you've ever had, but it's good. A small pizza is a moderatley sized 6 slice pie, which is perfect for 2-3 people either on a business lunch, or just strolling through downtown.

Went to the Villa Reale yesterday, the day of the Penguins Championship parade. The food was great, beers were cold, and it was a great place to be after the parade!!! The waitress was great and attentive!!! Can't go wrong with the white pizza!!!

The pizza here is awesome, especially the pepperoni pizza. The pepperoni is little and curls up and it's just awesome. Always consistent.

In Pittsburgh for a business trip and everyone kept telling me to go here and visit the 'Bar" section of the restaurant. Frankie the bartender is very cool and a great associate to have on your team! The meatball pizza is just outstanding and I am a pizza snob. Don't let the looks of the place scare you, or its... More

Great pizza - great hoagies - wonderful waitstaff, not expensive. You can get pastas and salads if you want (and they are good) but their pizza is terrific.

Stopped in for some pizza on lunch. Looked on google for places close by and decided to try it. It was very good pizza. We ordered a whole pie and was done in reasonable time. It was very good. I will definitely be back.

Thank Mzkx
