The only thing better than bucatini at Martorano’s Prime … is bucatini with a view.
Martorano’s Prime, the Italian-American steakhouse concept by celebrity cook Steve Martorano, opened at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh in January 2021. If you’ve not yet been, crisp sunny days present another reason to go—riverfront patio dining.
Martorano’s Prime features elevated Italian-American cuisine, prime cuts of beef and other high-end steakhouse staples. Among many culinary accolades, Martorano’s meatballs have been known to be the best in the world. Martorano’s restaurants elsewhere have become equally famous for attracting celebrity clientele, and Steve himself is a favorite guest on morning news and late-night TV shows.
Pennsylvania is familiar territory to this renowned cook, who greets everybody with “Yo Cuz!” and still works in his own kitchens. “I’m South Philly born and raised,” said Steve Martorano. “I learned to cook at my grandma’s elbow, and a lot of our menu is built on those family recipes.”
Rivers Casino Pittsburgh guests can expect luxe aesthetics inside Martorano’s Prime. Caramel-and-white marble facades intermingled with floor-to-ceiling glass walls frame the main dining area. Intimate tables for two dot the perimeter, while four- and six-tops are on the main floor. Martorano’s Prime also features a central bar and private dining area. Interiors are sumptuous: crystal chandeliers, rich mahogany, cream-colored leather, crisp linens and highly-polished silver. There is seating for approximately 200, including the patio.
Summer through fall, guests are encouraged to enjoy their meals outside on the patio adjacent to the main dining room. Sweeping views of the Ohio River and Mt. Washington adds a dramatic Pittsburgh backdrop to any meal.
“Martorano’s Prime is our Italian-American steakhouse that’s ideal for special occasion dining, date night, or just to reward yourself after a long week,” said Andrea Kleinrock-Marmion, vice president of food and beverage at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “This is an original Steve Martorano concept that’s only available in Pittsburgh.”
Patio seating is limited, and reservations are recommended.
