Decorating a Dish

Meet the Chef

The culinary experience at Scarpino is designed and executed by Chef Peter Henry and his hand-selected team of professionals. After spending 20 years leading kitchens as an executive chef in San Francisco, Henry made the move with his wife to Pittsburgh - a city which he has grown to love for it's culture and character. 

Henry has a passion for cooking with locally sourced ingredients, fresh flavors, and creativity. Though he's designed menus with inspiration from a variety of styles and cultures, he's very much excited about what Scarpino can bring to Pittsburgh's Italian restaurant scene. Because there is a heavy Italian influence in this region,  we know there's a lot to live up to, but at Scarpino we're up for the challenge of creating something new and exciting that Downtown Pittsburgh hasn't yet experienced. 

So whether you're looking for a romantic dinner, a night out with friends or colleagues, or just a night-cap sharing an appetizer and a bottle of wine, we hope that you'll turn to Scarpino for a full-flavored dining experience.
