    I was very pleasantly surprised, I was not expecting food this. I would definitely agree with others who have posted that this is mostly a takeout restaurants, but my two kids and I ate in the restaurant. it looked like they had just received their printed menus, which were in several places around the restaurant and the television was sitting on one of the benches, playing the game. I was a little uneasy while ordering, with a staff was very courteous and the food was excellent. Would definitely recommend for takeout or delivery.

    Damn good pizza. The crust makes it. They don't scrimp on toppings and the quality of those toppings. The location is a little difficult to get to but their pizza is worth the stop. Definitely recommend to you to try!!

  • *****

    Tasty, delicious, amazing, customer service driven! This is my favorite pizza place in the North Hills because of not only the taste but also the customer service from the owner and staff. I can't tell you how many times I've been *that person* ordering 15 minutes before they close because of my work schedule and timing but every time they've made dinner, delivered it, and been exceptionally kind. Most places would refuse the order - and I don't mean to be a jerk - but they always need commended and heavily tipped for their quality of product and service. If you're wondering if this is the pizza shop for you, then yeah it is. Give them a try.

    Work next door, and the wings are fantastic the hot flavor is amazing it's not like normal hot wings. Tried the philly cheese steak pizza the other day and it was the best philly steak pizza I have ever had. Always impressed.

  • *****

    Legit the best pizza in Pittsburgh. People always say places have the best pizza and it all taste the same. This pizza actually tastes different. The crust is somehow fluffy and crispy and the sauce is sweeter. 10/10!

  • *****

    I can honestly say that this was one of the best tasting pizzas I've ever had.

  • *****

    Really good pizza. We ate in and were the only eat in customers. Think its mostly a carry out. Place was warm but the food made it all worthwhile.

  • *****

    Pizza was pretty good. Got the Pelegrino's large specialty and liked it. Hubby wasn't crazy about the sauce , he thought it was a bit sweet. This place is in a bad location, I've driven by a million times and never noticed it. Would try again in a pinch.

  • *****

    Small dining area. Mostly delivery and carryout place.

    Pellegrino Special pizza was delicious. Beautiful presentation, fresh ingredients, tasty sauce. Garlic wings were small and a bit dry.

    Unisex bathroom was icky, definitely needs more frequent deep cleaning.

  • *****

    Very good. Best in the north hills

  • *****

    A very solid pie. Not my #1 in the area but a good alternate. Crunchy, chewy crust. Tasty, slightly sweet sauce. Good cheese, nice toppings. There is a reason Pelegrino's is one of the most popular pizza shops in the North Hills.

  • *****

    Nice people,nice place.

  • *****

    best place for pizzas in pittsburgh. i think. i am not native, but they are connected to oil and body repair shop and sometimes i feel like i can kinda taste motor oil in there stuff, but i mean in good way. they also have best staff, etc. been ordering from them for long time, never fails!!! PUT MORE MOTOR OIL IN MY HOAGIE!

  • *****

    This is really good pizza. I got a large pepperoni hand tossed pizza. The sauce is good, cheese is delicious, and dough is a medium thickness. They also have a pan pizza option, but I'll be sticking with hand tossed because it was really good. Only complaint is that it was a little too greasy, but nothing that a few dabs with a napkin couldn't fix.

  • *****

    The pizza here is wonderful-- best in the area in my opinion. I love crispy crusts. The employees are very friendly and accommodating. Pro tip- they also have great wings with a really nice spicy sweet sauce. Although its slightly more expensive than your standard pizza chain the quality is well worth the price. The ingredients are always fresh, and the pizzas are cooked to perfection.

  • *****

    Pizza is great and they deliver faster than places that are half the distance from me. The marinara sauce served with their breadsticks is nicely heated up and has more flavor than most. These guys are currently my go-to place.

  • *****

    Everything was VERY good. We ate there and the service was also 5 star. We had the Garden salad which was very fresh along with the homemade ranch. The medium pizza was cooked prefect and the pizza sauce was one of the best, if not the best we ever had. We found a new spot. I highly recommend them.

  • *****

    Wow! Ordered at 10:09 for delivery and recieved my food at 10:39. Everything was beyond fresh and hot. Great food ??

  • *****

    One of the top places to get Italian. Top quality ingredients on their pizza, bread quality shines on the subs, and the salad have a premium feel as well. Oh, and don't sleep on the buffalo chicken rolls

  • *****

    I never visited Pelegrino's recently but I know they are awesome. Especially the guy there. His name is Pete.

  • *****

    Food is always amazing and fast delivery! Keep up the great work!!

  • *****

    New to Pittsburgh & I've been over the mainstream brands of pizzas for a while. Been on a hunt for some good original pizza & I've found it. Really good pizza!!

  • *****

    You can't go wrong with anything at this place. It is super cheap and you get tons of food. We always order the Pelegrino's Penne and the Carbonara, which can easily feed a family of 4. The wings and pizza are also excellent. If you're looking for a cheap late night snack, Pelegrino's definitely won't disappoint.

  • *****

    Our first time order. We will be back. Great antipasto salad and great pizza. We got the Pelegrino's special pizza. WOW.

  • *****

    Love this place. Everything that we have tried so far has been nothing less than amazing. I keep recommending this place to all my friends.

  • *****

    Great food. Great staff. These dudes do it right

  • *****

    Pelegrino's is some of the best pizza I've had in Pittsburgh and I've lived here for 14 years. I am so glad I decided to try them about a year ago. By the looks you'd never know it was so good. No offense to them, it's just a small place that you might miss driving down busy Mcknight Rd. My co-workers and I order from them at least once a week. And my buddy gets their pizza and wings 1-2 x's a week. He's a TMNT, he loved pizza lol. I got their Quattro Formaggio (basically baked spaghetti w/ four cheeses for those who don't know) and it was AMAZING! I usually get their cheese pizza and it's by far my fav around. The guys are always so nice when I call or stop in. The delivery is usually always on time or early. Keep up the good work!

  • *****

    Delicious pizza, good wings and quick service.
    We ordered a hand tossed House special pizza with bbq chicken - a must try if you ever order from this place, it is simply delicious. The hot sauce wings were great too. All in all a great pizza experience. I would definitely order from this place again. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because of the price. It's slightly over priced but still very good.

  • *****

    Fairly new to this place and so glad we found them! Half salads are our favorite (Fiesta Chicken :) is so yummy). Their delivery is fast and has never "misplaced" any of our order. We use them for our "Birthday Club" and enjoy the pizza and hoagies! Great place to order from!

  • *****

    So far, everything we have ordered has been delicious! Wings, pizza, pasta and salads have all been delivered through Grub Hub and we have zero complaints. My wife loves their fettuccine carbonara and my favorite meal is the Greek salad. Nice variety of pizza and wings...all awesome

  • *****

    Our first time having Pelegrino's and we'll definitely be back. The pizza was the awesome, the entire family loved it!

  • *****

    Great food and fast service. I travel here a lot for work, so I order from them often. Their menu has great variety and they deliver to my hotel room door. Love this place!

  • *****

    My go to pizza place in the north hills. Great tasting pizzas and the veggie lasagna is excellent too. My wife says the wings are great too (I'm vegetarian). Not to forget, the staff are super friendly!

  • *****

    We have been trying local pizza places since we moved to north hills 5 years ago. This is my favorite by far. I love the sauce, has a bit of sweetness too it and the crust has a seasoned flavor also. Highly recommend for pizza that taste different from the rest

  • *****

    Had a margarita pizza delivered to my hotel. It was hot and delicious! Good flavor with a really good crust and I'm that guy who usually doesn't eat the crust. Good stuff!

  • *****

    Yum!! We were visiting friends in Pittsburgh and wanted to do pizza one evening and found this place on Yelp. Called and placed an order and it was ready in 15 minutes! They have a parking lot and it is easy to go in and pick up your pizza. They also have some seating available so you can eat there if you prefer. Everyone there was so friendly and nice. Excellent customer service. We were going to use the Yelp check in offer ($3 off a large specialty pizza) but the guy actually told us they had a buy one get one 50% off deal which would save us more money, which was so nice of him! If you're looking for coupons they have a bunch on the back of their paper menus which are available on the counter.

    For the pizza, we got a large cheese and a large Mediterranean. They were both delicious. We don't usually get plain cheese pizzas but our friend likes them the best so we decided to give it a try, and he was right, it was sooo good. They are very generous with the tomato sauce and cheese and it was perfectly melty. The Mediterranean is a good choice if you want chicken on your pizza. It also has spinach and peppers. It was very tasty and I would definitely recommend it. Two large pizzas were more than enough for five adults and a kid. We had more than half a pie left over.

    This will be our go-to pizza place anytime we are in town now!

  • *****

    I order from here frequently. Normally the service is quick and the pizza hot and good
    Very disappointed tonight. It took 2 hours for delivery .They did call after an hour and explained they were behind which I appreciated ,however it took another hour before I received the pizza and the pizza was cold. I prepaid for the pizza along with the tip
    NEVER again will I add the tip. If I EVER receive service like this again there will be NO tip

  • *****

    This place was quick and the staff were super friendly. I ordered 2 pizza without calling ahead on a Friday and it was still only 15 mins. It was also much nicer inside than I thought. Overall a good experience.

  • *****

    You guys are life savers! Delivered pizza to my sister stuck at the hospital tending to a sick family member. She said it was delivered hot, fresh, and delicious! Thank you so much! Oh, and it was fast!!!

  • *****

    Wow. First time ordering after our go to had a fire. Really, really outstanding pizza. Had hand tossed, the sauce is great. Lots of bacon on the bacon/cheese fries. Wings were nice and crispy. I see people talking about the time it takes....I don’t know about that. Ordered on line and was delivered a few minutes early....on a Sat between 6;00 and 7:00. Incredibly good food. Bravo. Here’s something a little more granular in the way of the review, focus on the pizza. You know how sometimes you eat a pie from places where the ingredients might be good, but it’s just not balanced? Say, the sauce just stands out and overpowers the rest of the parts, or the cheese is too thin? This is not that. this is a very balanced pizza where it all just comes together nicely. The crust was crisp to the ends, oil from the cheese and pepperoni didn’t do anything to soften it, nice and crisp! The sauce gives you a quick hint or tease of sweetness before the bold flavors you expect from a red sauce come forward. Look, if you’re in the North hills delivery area and you haven’t tried, you should. This is the real deal here.

  • *****

    Good pizza and very reasonable prices - their pizza sauce is a little on the sweeter side, so if you're not a fan of sweet sauce, you may not be a big fan. I personally enjoyed the taste and found that they had their own distinct style versus other local pizza joints.

    I'll definitely be stopping back when I'm nearby and trying some of the other items from their menu. There were quite a few options to choose from!

  • *****

    Just ordered from here for the first time and I have to say, it did not disappoint! The Florence pan pizza and fried ravioli were DELICIOUS!! We will be back without a doubt.

  • *****

    Pizza has been very good since my bad review. It tastes just like it used to. I'll be ordering again for sure.

  • *****

    Thank you Pelegrino's for being helpful and going out of your way to deliver food. The family said your food was very good!

  • *****

    Had the calzone. Visually, it looked amazing The crust, sauce, and cheese were all good. However, I'd avoid the sausage. It's like that nasty white fatty bland stuff Domino's used to serve.

  • *****

    I've been here five times and whenever in the Pittsburgh area I try to get my pizza from here. Always great!

  • *****

    Have ordered here a few times now and the pizza was fresh, delicious and still hot when it got here. One of the best pizzerias in Pittsburgh!

  • *****

    Truly THE BEST Pizza and Pasta in the North Hills of Pgh!!!!

  • *****

    These guys are so friendly, the food is fresh and delicious, I will DEFINITELY be returning here soon!! <3

  • *****

    The food was amazing!!! The staff was super friendly too ?

  • *****

    The thin crust pesto pizza was amazing! I definitely found my new go to place!

  • *****

    Great first impression! Pizza was excellent, pepperoni rolls were on point and the chicken bacon ranch hoagie w/French Fries was awesome! Staff was super friendly as well!

  • *****

    Our go-to pizza place. Delicious pizzas and Greek salad. Quality ingredients and fast delivery.

  • *****

    I viewed their menu online and decided I had to try the House Special Pizza. It was nice to have a pizza that offered something a little different, feta cheese, fresh garlic, shredded pepperoni and an assortment of veggies. The pizza had a great crust and a sauce that would be most comparable to Papa Johns. I wouldn't say that the pepperoni was "shredded", though. I'm not sure if it's a bad thing, but the pizza may have been a little too heavy with the toppings, which made it a little difficult to eat by hand, but for you forkers out there, this may be the place for you. They had a friendly staff, too.

  • *****

    I was in the mood for some pizza and decided to stop at Pelgrino's.
    It was not the kind of pizza place I was expecting.
    I had walked in and there where no pizza slices anywhere too be seen.
    They are more of a carry out and sit down restaurant .
    They do not serve slices of pizza only small and large pies.
    I got a small pie with black olives too go as the gentleman behind the counter said that that was the special a small pie with one topping.
    The pizza was excellent and had a really good taste too it.
    The service was excellent and the guy was very friendly.
    I would definitely go there again and maybe even try some of there regular Italian food as the reviews look really good.
    I definitely would recommend Pelegrino's for at least all your pizza needs.

  • *****

    I was in the area for a college fair and really just wanted some good pizza! Well after reading some of the yelp reviews of Pelegrino's I decided to go for it. It was my first time ordering delivery from the yelp app. To my surprise it was really easy. Pelegrino's menu was easy to go through. I ordered The pepperoni rolls and a calzone. Oh my goodness! It is so much food! And not a lot of money! I was and am so glad I chose Pelegrino's. Now every time I'm in the area... I will most certainly be stopping by or ordering. Amazing! The sauce that came with the items... so good! All of it was amazing! Taking a ton of left overs to my husband! Can't wait to see what he says. I know he is going to love it! Delivery time was a little late, but they were really busy... so over all no complaints

  • *****

    I was staying at a local hotel and ordered food. Delivered within the time frame they gave me and the food was delicious. Would defiantly eat from there again!!!

  • *****

    Superb! The owner really does care about the quality and atmosphere of his pizza joint. Two of us decided to Dine-in there. Typically they are more of a delivery or pickup place, but we figured we would sit down and eat. He was pretty busy with many deliveries and he was working hard in the back. However, he went out of his way to ask us how the food was and to just strike up a casual conversation. The pizza is absolutely fantastic and the calzone....just wow. Keep up the great work. Hard work pays off!

  • *****

    Wow!!! Heard they had great pan pizzas but I actually like thehand tossed better. Sauce is sweet and delicious. Best calzone I've ever had. Crispy chicken salad was amazing. I didn't think ranch could amaze me but there ranch did! Marinara is phenomenal! Service is great! Keep it up Pelegrino's. You are my new favorite place

  • *****

    This place is phenomenal, and we totally found it by chance! We are in Pittsburgh for a family member that is in the hospital and had to stop at the Target, which is across the street. We were hungry and spotted this little pizza place, and we are so glad we did! They don't have pizza by the slice, unfortunately, but it's worth getting a pie. They're not unreasonably expensive. We had the pepperoni rolls (8 large ones) and the hand-tossed Pelegrino Specialty pizza. They have yummy sauce and dough! Highly recommended!

    I was looking around for a new place to try and this showed up while I looked. I ordered the Pelegrino's Penne with a side salad. It came on time and it's simply amazing!! There was a enough dressing for the salad which was so nice. And the pasta was very good. A little over cooked but other then that it was very good!! I will be ordering from you again!!

  • *****

    Drew is the perfect owner. I bet the shop will expand. The food is wonderful. The staff is superb. I would definitely visit again. If you're on McKnight Road & craving pizza, pasta, or a salad, then try this place. You won't regret it.

  • *****

    Best calzones we've had in the area. Friendly and attentive staff too.

  • *****

    We're always on the prowl for good pizza, and we found it here. My husband was in the mood for Mexican pizza, so we ordered from here, and it was divine. Loaded with toppings but not so much to ruin the balance. Fast and fresh. We'll definitely be trying some more from this menu!

  • *****

    Editorial review from GrubHub
    The best.

  • *****

    Editorial review from GrubHub
    Fast and delicious

  • *****

    Not only was the food delicious, but the owners (two young guys trying to get a start in the business) were extremely friendly and clearly invested in making sure that I walked away with a good taste in my mouth each time (pun intended ;). Fantastic pizza, especially the buffalo chicken, with good quality ingredients in my humble opinion. Can't go wrong with this place!

  • *****

    Best Pizza. Best Sauce. Best Jalapeo Poppers. I'm in love!!!

  • *****

    I'm very glad I found this place, you could easily drive past it or miss it. You have to turn right before jiffy lube. The food is excellent, they don't skimp on the topping and you can sit inside to eat. Pizza places that you can sit down in are hard to find. The owner is great and he will explain anything about the menu you need to know. The waitress is just awesome, I have never seen a nicer and more attentive waitress. My kids just love her. This is the only place I will get pizza at now.

  • *****

    Cheap and delicious! I work down the street and we order from them almost every day. Love everything on the menu. The salad is so fresh! Pizza and calzones are so good! Definitely recommend ordering or stopping in to eat there!

  • *****

    Food was very good, but our server was the sweetest, friendliest girl we've ever had. She would have made it a great lunch stop even if the food was bad. Which it wasn't, very fresh ingredients and tasty. Veggie lasagna as well, which is hard to find and nice for non meat eaters.

  • *****

    Arguably the best pizza I had in town ! Restaurant is small but we were well treated ! We reached the restaurant very late, almost closing time..but still they showed a lot of patience ! We ordered chicken wings, paradise pizza and veggie pizza ! The crust is very stuff and tender. Both pizzas we ordered were vegetarian. All of them are delicious.. I will definitely suggest it to anyone ! 5 on 5 !

  • *****

    As great as the food is (trust me, it's all great ) the service is even better... Very friendly people who make very delicious food. Cannot go wrong ordering here!

  • *****

    loved the pizza. it had lots of toppings. Great deal. Can't wait to return.

  • *****

    I moved to north hills in October. When I moved here we tried Papa johns but they had horrible service and messed up the order. So we tried pellagrinos! Since then I haven't tried anywhere else! It is delicious food, not just the pizza but pastas and apps as well! They also have great service and very quick. I won't order pizza from anywhere else!

  • *****

    The food is simply amazing and I don't say that lightly. Like others have said the prices are a bit high and I was skeptical at first, but it's worth it. The staff is very friendly. I have nothing bad to say about this place and they'll continue to get my business.

  • *****

    Had their pizza for the first time last night because of the great reviews on yelp. And everyone was right pizza was phenomenal!

  • *****

    Best pizza in the North Hills hands down. The dough is unbelievably fresh, prices actually lower than some others, who don't compare quality wise, in the area. Great customer service and on time delivery. Can't go wrong! So far I've ordered the pizza multiple times as well as the ravioli and both have been great! My husband won't order pizza any where else now.

    Definitely have to try!

  • *****

    Owner called and offered me free meal delivery or eat inside and I am now very satisfied with this restaurant. I fully recommend it to anyone, they are the nicest people I've ever met. Trying the pizza

  • *****

    Pelegrino's did the most awesome birthday lunch ever!!! I ordered for delivery 5 pizzas, mixed soda cans and a cake. They delivered on time got the order right, did a whole chocolate cake, which they don't usually do. Everyone loved the mixture of pizzas they have and the lunch was a huge success. You guys are the best!!!! Thank you. Would order from here again

  • *****

    Very high quality ingredients. Stopped in for the first time today and was happy with the results. Got the 6.99 medium special with half pepperoni / black olives and half cheese for the wife. Good crispy crust... very tasty cheese and alright sauce. IMO the sauce could use some more flavoring.

    One warning... their prices are a little high (15.99 for a large pepperoni) but, given the better ingredients... it may be worth the extra cash.

    The high prices may be the downfall of this place because it was a ghost town when I went in for our pie.

    Give the place a try... you will not likely be disappointed.

  • *****

    This is the Only place I order from now. Turkey hoagie with house dressing is amazing. Salads always fresh. The Calzone is no joke and they have really good moz sticks. I could drink their marinara.

  • *****

    The pizza was awesome I have to say. I've been down here for a few months now recent transplant to the area. We have tried many pizza places and none satisfied our pizza cravings, until now. We finally found one! Very excited this will be our go too pizza place. A bonus is online ordering, love that they use technology and I don't have to wait on the phone hoping someone got my order and info right.

  • *****

    This place has excellent pizza and hoagies. (That's all I've had so far) the cheese and meats they use are very good, and you can tell it's not cheap. I suggest giving this place a try if you are looking for a good pizza place.

  • *****

    I used the Yelp Order Online tool for the first time when placing my delivery order from Pelegrino's Pizza. It also was my first time ordering from this restaurant. I needed something quick and easy, so I ordered a 12" mushroom and pepperoni pizza. There was a choice for traditional or thin crust; I chose traditional. However, when I opened the box it definitely looked like a thin crust pizza to me. If it wasn't thin crust, then the thin crust must be paper thin. Given that it was the first time I ordered from them, I don't really have anything to compare this experience with. As far as taste and flavor, I liked their pizza. I didn't love it, but I'd definitely order from them again. Their delivery charge of only .99 cents is a real bargain. What I enjoyed most about the pizza was that I didn't find it overly greasy. Everything was nice and intact every single bite.

  • *****

    My girlfriend and I just moved into the area and wanted to try a local pizza shop. The pizza was seriously the best pizza I have ever had! We will be back often!

  • *****

    Tried so many pizza places in Pittsburgh and this one is my favorite by far. Love the sauce. It is sweet and different from most pizzas places. Also.. The crust is like a butter crust. So good and so tasty! Their toppings are baked underneath the cheese which makes it even better!! Fresh and delicious!! I give it 5 stars! Highly recommend.

  • *****

    I've had their pizza and salads. Everything has been great, and service is always fast and friendly. I've been here multiple times, and have always enjoyed everything that I've ordered.

  • *****

    Really great experience! Can't believe I just discovered this place but it is now my go-to for pizza and so much more!

  • *****

    This place is a hidden gem. The pizza is delicious and unique. Probably because they make everything (including the dough) from scratch. Get the thin crust (note: it isn't really that thin, which normally I wouldn't be cool with since I'm a NY-styler - but the pizza is so good it doesn't even matter). I even liked the red sauce, when we usually are white sauce people. Maybe I've been converted. Also tried the fettuccine alfredo and it didn't disappoint. The staff is so friendly and accommodating - definitely our new local spot for takeout.

  • *****

    Whoa, I'm surprised I haven't reviewed this place yet! Pelegrino's pizza is located on McKnight road. The same building has been 3 other pizza places in the 4 years or so I have worked on McKnight, the best lasted a few months, the worst was out of business within one month. Given the place's track record, I had low hopes for Pelegrino's.

    The manager/owner personally delivered my first order, and he was so friendly and the food wasn't bad that I ordered again the next week. Since then, I've ordered at least once a week from them. I can't say I am a huge fan of their pizza- I prefer NY style and theirs is thick, but not bad. They have baked raviolis that remind me of St. Louis, and their fettuccine alfredo w/chicken is sinfully delicious. I have tried it at Italian chains, small mom and pop places, local legends like the Village Inn in Verona, I've had it in California and Missouri and Italy, and Pelegrino's, this little pizza place, is hands-down the best I have ever had.

    They also go above and beyond service-wise. I ordered (via GrubHub) some alfredo last week and asked for 2 dr. pepper cans with it as well. My cell phone was dead, so when they called and left a voicemail saying they were out of DP, I didn't get it. They got here well before the delivery time said they would, and they had gone and bought-out two bottles of Dr. Pepper to make up for them being out of it. That is CRAZY good customer service- on top of the very friendly delivery staff, the decent pricing, and the delicious food, these people go out of their way to please their customers. If you're reading this, give them a try. You will not be disappointed!

  • *****

    We really enjoyed our meals. You could tell that the food was made from scratch and not the stuff of chain restaurants. The pesto used for the pasta/chicken was fresh and yummy! The salads and breads were good, too. Kids got pizza and it looked good - I'm looking forward to trying their leftovers!
    Tiny eat-in area, but the delivery guy was busy. Our waitress was attentive and very friendly. Definitely a nice local gem - we will be back!

  • *****

    This place just became my girlfriend and I's go-to favorite.

    The gentleman who both took my delivery order and delivered it (I could tell by his thick, but very enjoyable accent and personality) was very polite and entertaining on the phone. That came across even more vividly in person at the front door.

    He included two of each the blue cheese and ranch that I ordered. I "had to try them because they're made in house". He was right. I had to try them. The pizza was amazing because of "the dough made fresh daily and it's more of a Chicago style, unlike that dry stuff they serve everywhere." He was right again.

    Don't hesitate. Order this pie and enjoy. To that gentleman (the owner as well maybe?), thanks for great food and the experience to go along.

  • *****

    Fantastic food, and amazing service! My boyfriend and I order from here on a regular basis. The food is always so delicious.

    The last time we ordered they forgot our sodas and they called us to confirm that we received them. We didn't mind so we didn't bother telling them. This time they brought us the extra sodas in addition to our order. We weren't expecting it. It was above and beyond great customer service.

  • *****

    I LOVE this place. It's a small business, and I hope that they will make it. I ordered pizza via Yelp on my mobile phone because there was a $3/off specialty pizza coupon, but because of the Yelp/restaurant/Eat24 integration, Eat24 actually transacted the order, and I wasn't able to use the coupon. If you want to use the coupon AND order through Yelp, choose "pay cash" so that Pelegrino can adjust it in the store for you.

    I ordered 3 pizzas and they were all delicious. I will be returning.

    I'm new to this area in the past year and finding a pizza joint that works for my tastebuds and lifestyle wasn't easy, despite there being a plethora of pizza places nearby. I mostly do delivery and anytime I put any specific instructions, they always got ignored until I found Pelegrino's. Instructions were simple, like less sauce on the wings, or more wings less dings. No other place got it right or even tried until this place. Delivery people are always polite and the food always arrives like 20 minutes before the actual time it's due (which I found out the hard way the first time and had to throw on a robe over jammies I had thought I had a bit more time to change out of, but I digress ;). The food is good - not over the top amazing but good decent food coupled with attention to detail and great delivery service - makes it a trifecta for me!

    I stopped by here with my wife and another dining companion for dinner over the summer. Whenever we walked into the place the first thing that we noticed was the heat as either they didn't seem to have air conditioning or it was broken. To remedy this they had a couple of fans running but it was still pretty warm. After we walked in we were greeted by a server who ended up being really pleasant throughout our evening and helped us to really enjoy our meals. Since this was the dining companion that I go out with to enjoy pizza we decided on a plain cheese pizza as well as their specialty Palermo Special (Prosciutto, Chicken, Cheddar, Mushrooms, Goat Cheese, Pine Nuts, Garlic Olive Oil Base & Mozzarella). Both of the pizzas ended up being really good and I thought that the soft pine nuts on a pizza made for an intriguing pizza. Before we left the restaurant a discussion ensued about how many stars I was going to give this place. Initially I said 4 stars but my wife and dining companion convinced me to move it up to 5 due to the pleasantness of our waitress.

    The bottom line for me is that I would stop by here again in the future. The service was awesome and the pizza was pretty good as well!

    Had a Lamb Gyro, it was good. Great cheese & great cucumber sauce. I tried to order online but the process was slow & cumbersome. Also the parking lot isn't well lit & hard to see from McKnight Rd. especially at night (it's between the Vitamin Shop & Jiffy Lube on the East side of the street).

    Good food, worth another stop when I'm in the area.

    While in the area went with friends for lunch had the Paradise Calzone. Crispy outside and actually cooked all the way through, combo of flavor was great. Probably the best calzone I've ever had. Friend had Pelegrino Special Pizza great tasting crust and toppings. Came to the table looking like it should be on the cover of a magazine. (Sorry so excited about the food that I didn't take s picture ) Other friend had Penne with chicken. Flavor was great and sauce had a nice rich flavor and was not at all oily like at all like a lot of places. This was a lot of food which we all ended up sharing and still had leftovers. The new owners were both there, they were very polite and friendly. Will definitely go back next time I am in the area.

    I had friends from out of town in for the weekend and after spending some time out at breweries we decided to head back to my place in Westview to play some games and order a pizza. I haven't been in he area long myself and have only tried a handful of pizza joints so decided to go off of a recommendation from the owner of a local game shop called Game Masters. The suggestion was Pelegrino's and it did not disappoint. I placed a delivery order for a Large Pelegrino Special and 12 Garlic Wings. I was quoted a 45 minute delivery time and that was about spot on if not a bit earlier. The Pelegrino Special was a huge hit! It not only looked amazing but tasted equally great. I really liked the crust and sauce while the toppings were all plentiful. There was a lot of cheese as well melted to perfection. I immediately knew this was the best pie I've had since moving to this area. The wings on the other hand while passable weren't anything special in my opinion. They were fairly dry and not much garlic flavor. I was expecting more of a wet garlic sauce but this was more of a dusting. I think next time I would try the hot wings instead. If you are looking for something new to try, this is the place for you!

    I just put down my plate of delicious food from here and had to write a review. I ordered delivery from here off the Yelp app based on the 5 star reviews. I loved that I could order right off here and most of the food had pictures beside it which was nice!

    We ordered hot and garlic parm wings, the meat calzone, and steak hogie. The wings were so yummy! They came with a side of Ranch and I'm not sure what special stuff they put in it, but it's bomb Ranch, I mean bomb bomb! The hot wasn't very spicey but they had good flavor. The meat calzone.. OMG this was to die for! I could eat this for days! The steak hogie was also very yummy!

    Delivery was quick and everything came piping hot. We will for sure be ordering from here again and I am so thankful this gem is so close to home! I need this in my tummy all the time!!

    Pizza is great. Entree items are great! Wings are fantastic. Delivery is generally quicker than they say it will be, which is also great. To summarize, this place is great!

    First time in town overnight. Checked out reviews on YELP. The Palermo was one of the best pizzas I have ever eaten. It arrived very hot. My Greek salad came prepared in a very nice container and was awesome.
    If you are in Pittsburgh and looking for delicious well prepared food, this is your place.

    My husband and I were disappointed that our favorite restaurant closed early, and we weren't sure if there would be any good options opened at 10 pm. Thankfully I found this spot on Yelp and showed my husband. He wasn't impressed by the look of the place but gave in because we couldn't find anything else.

    I am so glad we found this place! We both ordered fettuccine Alfredo and we both loved it! It came with a HUGE salad, and I chose the amazing house Italian which tasted like there is balsamic vinegar in it. Then our entrees came out on a huge plate with two delicious pieces of garlic toast.

    Overall I am so glad we found this place and we will be back!

    My wife and I love the hot wings(extra crispy) and have enjoyed every Pizza we have had here. Pepperoni rolls were very good also. If the place was cheaper I'd probably eat here weekly.

    Solid 5 Stars!

    As a vegan working in Ross Park Mall, there are not many food options. So I turned to GrubHub, where I discovered the amazing and versatile menu of Pelegrino's!

    I was able to custom-order a Pesto Pizza, sans meat and cheese, add-on extra veggies - even PINE NUTS! And it was soooo delicious. I loved the crust; super flakey and crunchy on the outside, and super soft on the inside. The Pesto tasted homemade. The veggies were fresh (not canned).

    And as a bonus - they delivered it right to my store in the Mall, within a reasonable amount of time. SO GRATEFUL!

    My husband & I were staying at the Home2Suites nearby and ordered delivery online. We ordered a small spinach pizza special (delicious), Fettuccini Alfredo & a spinach salad. The delivery was fast & the food was fantastic. We will definitely order from here next time we're in the area.

    Best pizza I've had in a very long time. I was working in the North Hills area, and we ordered 5 pizzas from here. I had the veggie pizza, and the Florence Pizza. I was blown away. Delicious crust, flavorful sauce, and toppings galore. I wish they either delivered to or had another location in the South Hills area, because I'd probably order from them at least twice a week. Wonderful experience!!!

    The pizza here is unique. It has a slightly more bread-like crust than usual. Toppings are fresh and generous. Sauce is a little too sweet. Delivery has always been prompt and the delivery person is always very pleasant.
