Delicious Italian food never disappoints for lunch or dinner.Located in Bloomfield, Pittsburgh's "little Italy" Have visited often. Service is excellent. Also serves bar food like fried zucchini and hamburgers which are just OK when you just stop in for a pint of Guinness.

Loved this food. Very authentic and fresh. Salad was great, dressing was great. I had the eggplant lasagna. For dessert the lemoncello marscapone cake. We loved all of it. Smaller restaurant with bar in front. Lots of locals watching games. Parking requires pay meter.

I've lived in Pittsburgh for 33 years, and the Pleasure Bar is a go-to place for dependably good food. I've been a loyal customer through many owners and renovations, and it's as good now as it has ever been. I usually go for lunch; favorites...More
