When DiAnoia’s opened in 2016 in the Strip District, it was instantly popular - maybe too popular - and now reservations fill up weeks in advance. When you want to impress someone enough to convince them to date you, though, it’s one of the best options. And when you want really good pizza and to show up in whatever you wore to the Steelers game, there’s Pizzeria Davide (connected to the back of DiAnoia’s). Specialty pies with toppings like bologna and pepper relish are the way to go, but bring a few friends since they only offer them in the 19-inch, extra-large size. There are outdoor picnic tables too, so if you’re here during the winter, bring a scarf, hat, and hand warmers. Though the incredibly hot cheese could probably serve the same purpose if you slipped it into your gloves.
