Nothing beats a hearty plate of homemade spaghetti and meatballs, and it just so happens that our region’s rich history produces plenty of it.

Many of our local Italian restaurants have been staples in their communities for decades. And if you don’t find their pastas appealing, there’s plenty of other tantalizing items on the menu.

But don’t take our word for it.

The Observer-Reporter Best of the Best awards continues to celebrate the best businesses, organizations, people and more that the residents of Washington County, Greene County and the South Hills thought deserved the distinction of best in their respective category.

The response from the community and nominees was overwhelming. More than 425,000 votes were captured from 28,000 unique voters, validating the vitality of the communities that comprise the Observer-Reporter’s coverage area.
