I lived in the Pittsburgh area for 5 years and I can say that I tried many restaurants Hamburgers. Sometimes you just want a good burger. Well Tessaros BY FAR has the best. They cook over a hardwood-fired grill that you can smell when you walk up to the place. Makes your mouth water before you get in the door.... More

I came with my family for my birthday....my choice. My relatives loved the burgers and wanted to come back soon!! The no-muss, no-fuss burger and home fries is the best burger I will ever eat.....I live in Virginia but come here for the burgers. Not fancy, but you come here for the food- seriously, the burger, the burger, the burger.... More

this is a classic spot in Bloomfield, which Is Italian village. The half pound gourmet burgers were excellent. I had bacon and blue cheese on mine and it was really good. Reasonably Priced. Seating Is A Little Tight, But we liked it.

This is a local joint. Seemed like a lot of regulars were there. Good burger cooked to order. No complaints.

Go to Tessaro's, have a burger and a beer and partake of one Pittsburgh's classic institutions. It is always crowded, noisy, and not a place to impress a date. Enjoy.

This is a small place filler with yinzers and sports fans. The wait-staff call you "hun" and, like most people for Pittsburgh, give directions based on landmarks that don't exist anymore. It is good place to grab a bit if you're in Bloomfield after drinking, or any other time really. Overall, it is a hidden gem.

I live nearby. This place is great. The staff is friendly but slightly rude... hey, it is Bloomfield. That is par for the course.

Tessaro's is the place to go to experience great Pittsburgh atmosphere. The hamburgers are their trademark meal.

You feel entering in a European family owned restaurant. The food is good and everybody is nice in the place.

We went here expecting the supreme hamburger and I would have to say it was quite ordinary, except for the size which was huge. We had a party of six and were lucky to get a table as they do not take reservations. The waitress was extremely good and the service was above average. Perhaps our burgers were done and... More
