My family recently dined at Caffe Amante and we were impressed by their great location, great menu, great service- and great prices! We chose this restaurant based on other TripAdvisor reviews for dining before a CLO performance.
Caffe Amante is located on the second floor of 5th Avenue Place, so you might have a short walk to the restaurant- and then just another pleasant stroll the nearby theatres. Our view of The Golden Triangle was great! PS: They will validate your parking in the 5th Avenue Place parking area!
The menu is not fancy or extensive, but there is enough variety to satisfy most any appetite! I'm sure the size of menu enabled the service be quick and the prices to be quite fair: no meal was more than $25.00! (Desserts and libations are available at very reasonable prices too!)
My family likes to try different eating establishments when we make our trips to Pittsburgh for theatre productions, but since dining at Caffe Amante- we are looking forward to a "repeat performance"! Encore!
