General Info:
Try one of our new breakfast sandwiches! Al Vento has been serving pizza in Pittsburgh and his restaurant has become more of a neighborhood institution than a pizzeria. He built his business working 17 hour days and offering pizza and hoagies to customers with a daily rhythm and rap. Feeding the stomachs of repeat customers and friends has been the easy part of his business; running a pizzeria in a once thriving area of Pittsburgh that has gone through decades of urban redevelopment fads has been the hard part. Vento has been forced to move his operation three times in the name of progress for his East Liberty neighborhood. With a commitment to his community and the undying support of the customers raised on Vento food, Vento struck a deal to rebuild in a corner of Home Depot's parking lot.

Vento's

I have been going to Vento's since I was a little girl, and am now 61 years old! Vento's has the most wonderful pizza, and sandwiches. When our house, a few doors from Vento's was torn down, some 44 years ago, in the name of re-developement, we moved out to North Hills. About once a month we still pay a visit to Vento's and stock our freezer with pizza. There is a good reason we continue to frequent the store. Not only do they have really wonderful pizza and sandwiches, but when y...view moreou go in the store you feel like you're with family. If the owner, Big Al, is around, he always makes a point of shaking hands and thanking folks for coming in. I feel they are generous with ingredients and prices are a good value for what you get. For the last few years I have kinda gotten hooked on their white pizza with sliced tomatoes. Try it!! You won't be sorry!!

Awesome !!!

Best food i have ever eaten. Pizza, Hoagies, stombolis are out of this world. Excellent enviornment, as they make you feel like apart of their family. I must admit i eat there atleast two-three times a week. I especially like taking my children there because it is always clean, and has a big menu to choose from.
Clearly, the best pizza in pittsburgh.

The ""bomb""

Vento's pizza doesn't receive nearly enough recognition as it deserves. It's been around for more than 50 years and is just a very ""homey"" kind of place where the food, service and attitude is always outstanding. And hey, if you do visit and you're not satisfied, Mr. Vento himself is easy enough to contact, he's can always be found walking around the restaurant offering a hand and making sure everyone is satisfied.
