Garabino’s Features Pastas, Parmesans, and Grilled Chops (Thurs., 7/28/22)

Now in its fourth generation of Italian cooking, Garbarino’s gives patrons the choice to dine at home or on site. Either way, it’s an upscale, authentic Italian experience. To-go Sicilian pizzas include regular, olive, fromage (with four different cheeses), and Pittsburgh. (No, the last doesn’t have French fries but rather banana pepper, Italian sausage, sweet onion, and tomato sauce.) One can also buy fresh-made pastas (rigatoni and spaghetti) and sauces to cook at home whenever a craving for Italian strikes. Pastas constitute a big portion of the dine-in menu, and these run the gamut of spaghetti Bolognese to spaghetti pesto alfredo. The restaurant serves three different parmesans under entrées (eggplant, chicken, or veal). Carnivores can enjoy the chicken piccata,16 oz. New York strip prime, rack of lamb, and veal chops, and more. Different salads, crispy brussels, fried mozzarella, meatballs, and beans & greens make for some eclectic appetizers. For dessert? Cannoli or tiramisu. Garbarino’s can make many items gluten-free. Reservation suggested for Dine-in. 5925 Baum Blvd., East Liberty. (C.M.)
