My family recently dined at Caffe Amante and we were impressed by their great location, great menu, great service- and great prices! We chose this restaurant based on other TripAdvisor reviews for dining before a CLO performance. Caffe Amante is located on the second floor of 5th Avenue Place, so you might have a short walk to the restaurant- and... More

Located in the Cultural District, this restaurant is a great place to go before the show. There is a great mix of entrees that will appeal to almost any diner, and the prices are quite reasonable. Also has a great view of the area.

Tried Café Amante for the first time tonight, before heading to Benedum to see Phantom. What a pleasant surprise. Start with easy access from parking garage straight to concourse in front of restaurant. Met by smiling hostess who inquired if we had parked in there garage and immediately provided complimentary parking. Our waitress, Janine, was attentive and genuinely friendly, not... More

Six of us went to dinner during Light Up Night in Pittsburgh - the third visit for us in as many years on the same night. While the food was good, the service could not have been worse - and it had nothing to do with the crowds - there were several empty tables in our section and the other... More

For some unknown reason, this restaurant often seems to be overlooked by locals. Last weekend, I took two grandsons to a show at the Byham Theatre. Caffe Amante is just a short walk away. It does not have a child menu but the offering of spaghetti worked well and both plates were clean at the end of the meal. The... More

Our waitress came up and told us the soup of the day but no specials of the day. Then she waits on a table right by us and tells them the specials. It took her about 10 minutes after this to come over and take our order. I ordered a caesar salad with shrimp. The shrimp was poorly seasoned and... More

This is a very good choice for affordable downtown Pittsburgh food before a show or concert. Hidden in Fifth Avenue Place with tables well spaced, it is rarely crowded or noisy. Three of us had a very good dinner with time to spare prior to a 7:30 curtain and felt it was a very good value.

We have eaten here many times in the past but I have never written a review until now. We are planning to eat here tonight so I thought I would write a review based on our previous experiences. Like so many others have said, this is a hidden gem and very reasonable considering that it is a downtown restaurant. The... More

Due to the absurd taxi situation in Pittsburgh, we were stuck in the downtown area on a Saturday night. We nabbed a reservation at the last minute at Caffe Amante. The food is old-school Italian family style, so don't expect anything innovative, but everything we had was done well, with generous portions at unbelievably reasonable prices. The wine list was...

It is on the second floor of 5th Ave Place, with other faster food places around. Treat yourself to a delicious relaxed lunch or dinner. My husband's office always has their Holiday Party there. They have an absolutely fabulous spread, buffet style, with everything from seafood, to filet mignon, to several choices for the vegetarian or vegan. And wonderful desserts.... More
