Uniquely different, the Village Tavern & Trattoria specializes in delicious Northern Italian and American cusine with a relaxed, welcoming open air environment right in the heart of the city's West End.
One of Pittsburgh's most historic neighborhoods, the West End was incorporated as Temperanceville in 1837, so named from the stipulation in all property deeds that liquor should never be sold on the premises. Sawmills, grist mills and a glassworks joined oil refineries and several iron works in providing a thriving industrial base for the area. The nearby Ohio river guaranteed easy transportation of products and materials for local businesses. And the view of the city from Temperanceville's hilltop was breathtaking. Temperanceville was annexed by Pittsburgh in 1872. Recently, the neighborhood has been rebranded as the West End Village.
Village Tavern reflects this fascinating history, calling home a beautiful old building painted a classic forest green with a large garage door facing the street --- which is opened on warm weather nights. Inside, guests are welcome to choose comfortable booths each lit by its own stained-glass pendant lamp. The exposed brick walls are hung with oversized mirrors, salvaged mantels and framed ephemera marking Pittsburgh's blue collar history.
