DiAnoia’s Eatery was named one of Pittsburgh’s Best Restaurants from Pittsburgh Magazine for 2023.

During the interview process for the Pittsburgh Magazine Food Editor position, my now-boss Virginia Linn asked me where I’d like to meet to chew the fat over my resume.

“This is a test,” I thought to myself. “She’s asking me to pick a restaurant that’s a blend of casual and sophisticated, an all-day space with a menu that spans breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktails. Bonus points if there’s an empty parking lot.” DiAnoia’s in the Strip checked all of those boxes (except for the parking thing). Plus it’s owned by the same family that operates nearby Pane e Pronto bakery and Pizzeria Davide, making them a carbohydrate triple-threat.

Despite my aversion to space-hunting in the Strip, I was craving some of Chef Dave Anoia’s Pork Sugo with housemade rigatoni, braised pork, San Marzano tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. I can’t remember what Virginia ordered, but the bottom line is I got the job — and enough food for lunch the next day.” – Kristy Locklin, Photos by Laura Petrilla, Pittsburgh Magazine
