I visited my son recently and we went here, one of his favorite places. We had a burger and potato salad. FANTASTIC!!! They have a selection of pre-designed burgers, but you can make up your own. The rolls are made locally and are bulky, but light--great absorption of juices, but not too filling. The burgers are made with FRESH locally... More

We went to Tessaro's on a mid-Saturday afternoon. The place was about 90% full but luckily they had a table for 5 available. We were seated immediately. Very friendly and efficient wait staff was there that day. I ordered the Cajun Burger and it was outstanding. Definitely one of the best burgers I've ever had anywhere. Cooked exactly as I... More

This is the perfect bar burger that we all long for but rarely get! I had the bacon blue cheeseburger grilled to perfection! Then, the big bonus was the perfectly prepared home fries. We also shared a side of cole slaw which was creamy delicious. PS The wine was a healthy pour and my Bloody Mary was excellent!

Seeing all of the reviews I wanted to give this place a shot and try out their burger. I had the BBQ burger with home fries. Never have seen home fries served with a burger but it was fine. Dont think there is an option for fries. The burger was large, cooked well and tasted good but I wasn't blown... More

I lived in the Pittsburgh area for 5 years and I can say that I tried many restaurants Hamburgers. Sometimes you just want a good burger. Well Tessaros BY FAR has the best. They cook over a hardwood-fired grill that you can smell when you walk up to the place. Makes your mouth water before you get in the door.... More

The no-muss, no-fuss burger and home fries is the best burger I will ever eat.....I live in Virginia but come here for the burgers.

this is a classic spot in Bloomfield, which Is Italian village. The half pound gourmet burgers were excellent. I had bacon and blue cheese on mine and it was really good. Reasonably Priced. Seating Is A Little Tight, But we liked it.

This is a local joint. Seemed like a lot of regulars were there. Good burger cooked to order. No complaints.

Go to Tessaro's, have a burger and a beer and partake of one Pittsburgh's classic institutions. It is always crowded, noisy, and not a place to impress a date. Enjoy.

This is a small place filler with yinzers and sports fans. The wait-staff call you "hun" and, like most people for Pittsburgh, give directions based on landmarks that don't exist anymore. It is good place to grab a bit if you're in Bloomfield after drinking, or any other time really. Overall, it is a hidden gem.
