Originally launched in 1955 by Italian-American immigrant Alfonso "Papa Cip" Cipriani (1900-2000), this tavern is a landmark in suburban Dormont.
Cip's can't be missed: it is in a pearl white corner building. The bright open space is dominated by a huge bar and walls decorated with images of Pittsburgh's many sports teams and stars. Cip's also serves a limited menu highlighted by a grilled blend of meats, cheese and a secret dressing in pita bread called the Camel Driver.
Today, it is operated by close friends of the Cipriani family.
Daily, 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.
Metered on-street parking is available along with a metered lot behind the building, which is available daily until 4:00 p.m.
