Sienna Sulla Piazza in Market Square has expanded, threefold. The multi-level Sienna Mercato, located in the Cultural District, now offers three distinct eateries under one roof — Emporio: A Meatball Joint; Mezzo, featuring wine, charcuterie, and wood-fired pizza; and Il Tetto, a rooftop beer garden! Says partner Susan Certo, “We’re really excited to bring something unique to the city. The rooftop has a glass retractable roof and becomes an upscale, open-air restaurant. It’s something you’ve never seen in Pittsburgh.” Executive Chef Matthew Porco offers the restaurant’s fresh-cured meats and cheeses, and upscale appetizers to patrons Wednesday through Sunday, from 4:30 p.m. to close. On Monday and Tuesday, the space is closed for private parties. “We’re thrilled,” says Certo. “We think it will be a really great destination point in Pittsburgh. And, really special.” At Il Tetto, we’re loving the Duck Confit Steak Fries with duck fat gravy, cherries, and a sunny-side-up duck farm egg, and the Octopus Terrine with olive tapenade, roasted red pepper, lemon emulsion, and micro greens. While surrounded by the city’s skyscrapers, wash it all down with one of 32 draft beers!
