  • Cheese please! OK, There is more than cheese here and it's all OMG wonderful. But I come for the cheese first and everything else is is just a Cherry on the Sundae. It's good I don't live in the Burgh...  more »

  • Pennsylvania Macaroni Company is one of those "Must experience it!" kind of places. Think authentic Italian grocer, wherein the phrase is well beyond just a marketing ploy. The large section of the store devoted to deli products is like nothing else I know of. An unbelievable variety of cheeses and sandwich meats, all of excellent quality, and @ a MUCH LESS COST than what you'd pay anywhere else. And I have always enjoyed the fact that the overhead sign @ the cheese counter, lists them by country of origin. One of their employees informed me that "ballpark figure" they offer a total of around 500 different varieties of cheeses (that being in context of an entire year). He explained that many varieties are seasonal to times of the year, and (as a for intance) gave example of the cheeses from certain countries, that are produced only during the month of new spring grass. One example, apparently among numerous others, regarding these seasonal varieties. So many other things that I'll only mention a few favorites: bulk dried food items, self-serve olive oil, great selection of hot sauces, pickled, and in-oil, jarred products, and of course tomato products and pastas. But again, no written description can really convey it. You simply have to go there!
  • This place is truly on your list for unique experience. If you can imagine going to an old time Grocery Store 50 years ago this is Penn Mac. The banter and chit chat at the cheese and Olive counter is absolutely Wild. I've been there many times and I have to say I've never got bad product. Even after you bought your groceries at the cash register .you walk past the building with all their goodies displayed on the pastries cakes very unique experience.
  • Great place to get most of the food I need for the week or for a party. Being allergic to cow's milk, I love the variety of sheep's milk cheeses I can get. Fresh and dried pastas of all sorts, including gluten free. Great deli.
  • My go to for almost everything. Very good prices and great quality. Friendly and helpful staff. I would absolutely love if they could find a large enough market to start carrying seitan in the deli and cheese side.
  • Authentic Italian grocery store that reminds one of "yesteryear". Much more than a shopping trip, Penn Mac is an experience in and of itself. Be sure to visit the deli counters for some truly delicious meats and cheeses that you won't find at your grocery store.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
