When you’re in a celebratory mood or in the planning stages of a Treat Yourself Tuesday, make your way to Cioppino for perfectly-seared steaks, refined seafood, and decadent pasta.
After finding its way onto Best of Pittsburgh Steaks list, this neighborhood chophouse continues to serve up quality cuts alongside a blend of classic and contemporary fare. Just steps away from your front door at The Cork Factory, Cioppino is the place to be for impromptu dinner dates, weekend indulgences, and festive nights out in the Strip District.
Here are a few highlights to look forward to:
Steak & Chops
If you're craving sizzling steak and tantalizing sides, step inside Cioppino for the finest cuts. Whether you prefer tender filet mignon or dry-aged ribeye, you'll find the best pairings to complement your meal with additions such as salt and vinegar frites, house bacon, Brussel sprouts, and cheddar gremolata. For those in your party who'd like to skip the beef, the menu also offers pork, chicken, and lamb all plated with unique and inspired sides. Pork chop with smoked baked beans and fresh cornbread, anyone?
Seafood lovers abound on the neighborhood eatery for its fresh filets, delectable crab cakes, and the signature stew of mahi-mahi, lobster, clams, mussels, and lump crab. Of course, Cioppino pairs the perfect sides with its decadent mains. Indulge in seared sea scallops atop a bed of creamy lobster risotto or enjoy a filet of tuna with fresh broccoli, cannellini beans, and a curried mussel broth.
While we fully support indulging in an extra plate or two, we'd be remiss not to encourage diners to save room for dessert. Top off your steak dinner with bourbon raspberry swirl cheesecake, finish the night with a vanilla crème brûlée, or treat yourself to their famed chocolate chip cookie dough egg rolls. This heavenly confection is made up of flourless chocolate hazelnut cake, chocolate ganache, smoked mocha mousse, Nutella chocolate schmear, and crushed chocolate espresso beans. If dinner isn’t in the cards, we tempt you to grab an after dinner Syrah at the bar to pair with a dessert sampler.
Drinks & Events
Round out your dining experience with a seasonal beer, top-shelf whiskey, or a fine wine from the world’s best terroirs. Cioppino is stocked with over 300 whiskeys, offering a medley of smooth bourbons and peaty scotches. For those who prefer a different kind of pour, check out Half-Priced Wine Night every Monday. Later in the week, enjoy a range of live musical acts such as rock and funk covers from Terrance Vaughn Trio, sultry blues from Midnight Express, and smooth jazz from The Lucarelli Trio.
