The Tambellini family and their restaurant has been a favorite location for generations of Italian food lovers.
In March of 1950 Brothers Frank and Charles Tambellini, with daughters ; Mary and Frances Tambellini in partnership with Charlie, Joe, and Paul Sodini, purchased the 7th Street Cafe located at 106 7th Street across the street from the Stanley Theater; now the Benedum Center. They purchased the old Carl’s Bar at 139 7th Street down the street from their Cafe location (across from the Century Building).
Tambellini’s 7th Street serves some of the finest fresh prepared fish in the city. The choices include lemon sole, sea scallops, Cod, in addition to specialty fish such as salmon, swordfish, and tuna. The sauces are home-made. Everything from the meat, marinara, clam sauce, and tomato basil are made daily. The meats are as fresh and tender as the best steak houses in Pittsburgh. They include items as sautéed veal, strip steak, filet mignon, and boneless chicken breast.
Monday through Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.; Friday & Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
Parking facilities are located along 7th Street and on-street parking is available on Penn Avenue.
