Longtime Carnegie restaurant Talotta’s closes doors

Anthony and James were a part of the second generation of the Talotta family that owned Talotta’s Restaurant in Carnegie. It had been in business on West Main Street for 75 years and closed its doors in October. The photo was taken in the 1940s at the restaurant’s bar.

A decades-long family tradition has ended with the closing of Talotta’s Restaurant on West Main Street in Carnegie.

Harjap S. Mann purchased the property and building at 513 West Main for $110,000 from Tom Talotta and Carol A. Gibbons on Oct. 30, according to Allegheny County property records.

“I wish the Talotta family much success,” said Jack Kobistek, Carnegie’s mayor. “They are a super family and have done a lot for the community.”

Talotta was not available for comment on Thursday afternoon. Mann also could not be reached for comment.

The restaurant featuring homemade Italian food was a fixture in the community for several years.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
