- 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.

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.
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 satisfie... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
