This place is a joke! 11/9/2009

Folinos used to be a nice place to eat at until it merged with toms diner, now its just ridicilous! If a woman is at the bar, she has to walk thru folinos and into where the employees are to go to the restroom. Service is horrible and the food is not even average. Everything about this establishment is bad all around. more

Outstanding service! 1/10/2008

I run the Pittsburgh Sports League Running Group and we ran from Folino's tonight. It was a cold and rainy night and we returned chilled, thirsty, and very hungry. I had made a reservation and about 17 of us ate in the upstairs loft room - a great private area. I don't think we have ever had service as good as we did at Folino's. It was quick, friendly, and very very cooperative with a group of 17 tired, cold, hungry people. The complimentary bruschetta on the tables was gobbled quickly and the water glasses were always kept full as the servers ran up and down the stairs to keep the cold beer coming. The wedding soup was outstanding and served piping hot. I had the Greek entree salad which was fresh and enormous. Other diners had the pasta (they have whole wheat!) and the pizza and there were rave reviews all around. The highlight of the night, though, was our server James's patience and friendly demeanor. He was aided by two other outstanding servers whose names I did not get. He even offered separate checks without us having to ask. I would go back to Folino's anytime and would encourage anyone looking for a nice, but affordable place for a group outing to try it out! Pros: Service, atmosphere, affordability Cons: Southside parking - but not enough to deter another visit more
