Senti italian food european service wine bar Pittsburgh

The concept for Senti was born from Franco Braccia’s dream of bringing together authentic Italian food, traditional European service and modern wining and dining. Inspired by a collection of classic Italian recipes provided by Franco’s lifelong friend and Italian Chef, Enrico Scolari, Senti’s Executive Chef has masterly created an ensemble of dishes that retain the integrity of those original recipes while showcasing an understanding for the subtle flavors of Italy.

In addition to the dining rooms, Senti has a wine bar/lounge area with a state-of-the-art, automated wine dispenser allowing Franco to feature exquisite Italian wines at affordable measured pours. The wine dispenser can be operated by a server, or, with the purchase of a prepaid card, customers can help themselves at their leisure.

The interior design of Senti was done by Christina Ishida of Cici Crib Interiors. Christina sought to pay homage to Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh’s Art Center, with Senti’s open, gallery-like layout and the large, original paintings by Traute Ishida. The art on the walls pops against the dark aubergine main wall, while the art on the plates pops against the pristine white of the minimal dishes.
