Bitter Temptation

DiAnoia's Eatery in Pittsburgh keeps it real with all-day Italian, from morning coffee to afternoon deli, then evening rounds of Tuscan kale salad, wild mushroom carbonara and whole branzino. The sunny space sports a blue-tiled breakfast bar and relaxed dining room with light fixtures made from wine bottles. Drinks are simple but gratifying, and the Bitter Temptation is no exception. It’s bitter, sweet and bracing all at once.
