Re: “New Bellevue restaurant adds another bar option — and tacos

Its more than about the chef , none of you people seen how this building looked before dave took charge and designed the way it looks, 'himself' , gutted it and had it rebuilt ... without dave caligiuri (who owns the entire building) there would be no 202 hometown tacos or bar ..... good food indeed but good knowledge counts more ..... my son is the best !!!

Re: “New Bellevue restaurant adds another bar option — and tacos

The fresh food is totally worth the trip. Every time I go the chef is ALWAYS there and more than accommodating to my needs! She came out to my table after me asking about what I could eat with my diet restrictions and made sure I was well taken care of. Some of the other management on the other hand had some attitude issues. The "general manager" was blatantly scorning an employee... very unprofessional. I will definitely go back due to the food and the chefs positive outlook on food but if she wasn't there I wouldn't. It's sad to see the chef not mentioned after all that she does for the restaurant.

Re: “New Bellevue restaurant adds another bar option — and tacos

I dont know the other owners, but I do know Dave... mr pimpplayer6969.... if it were not for the other owners and that chef, this place would basically be an over priced taco bell and hole in the wall bar.

Lucky for "Mr. Caliguri" lol his childhood friend, and the Chef made an amazing place for him to make a huge profit.

Keep up the great work, the food and enviroment are amazing!!!

Re: “New Bellevue restaurant adds another bar option — and tacos

Hows it that none of the write ups ever mention the actual CHEF that created the menu, and runs the kitchen? If not for the Chef, they would only be a taco shop with beer

Re: “Daughters Leila and Dalel carry on 47-year legacy of Mediterranean family-style menu

It is a beautiful restaurant that captures the charm of the Middle East. The food is wonderful and authentic. It is spiced to perfection and the portions are generous. We love to go there on special occasions. The desserts are beautiful and delicious. We are lucky to have Khalil's on Baum to enjoy!

My family!!! Thank you for such a wonderful article about my sisters' carrying on the legacy of Mike and Aggie Khalil's untiring passion for making a difference in people's lives through food, and the whole culinary sensory experience. The article captured the essence of Khalil's, its history, its future. It's uniqueness and special place in the hearts of Pittsburghers.

Fantastic BBQ! Great food and the owners are the friendliest people you will meet. They make a large platter we purchase weekly for our office lunch.

Re: “Sewickley's Mediterra Café is inventive without being inaccessible

I disagree wholeheartedly with your characterization of the breakfast sandwich, its incredible! Other than that you got it right :)

Re: “DiAnoia's old-world pizza gets its own home with Pizzeria Davide

Here's an idea: Offer the pizzas in house all the time for sit down patrons. Why is this concept so hard for this place? You can't order them for dinner if you are eating there. WHY???? It makes NO SENSE. I would like to eat it fresh out of the oven and not have to drive some where or eat it in my car. This place is completely overrated.
