  • Janet Pellegrini in Pittsburgh Business Times
  • Charlie and Janet Pellegrini, owners of the F. Tambellini Ristorante in the Downtown Cultural District, are using advanced technology to communicate with their customers and are incorporating entertainment into their business. During the past 18 months, they have noticed a decrease of at least 25 percent in their lunch crowd, although dinner sales are up as much as 20 percent. In order to increase lunchtime sales, the Pellegrinis have notified local companies that the restaurant is available for business meetings. However, dinner time accounts for 80 percent of the business at the restaurant, which is located next to the Benedum Center. As a result of the economy, the Pellegrinis have started offering wine dinners, mystery dinners, comedy nights and cooking classes. They have established an e-mail database to keep customers informed of events and to provide them with special offers and gift certificates; have added their presence to social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter; and have optimized the restaurant’s Web site to enable visitors to view the information from their mobile phones. “Incorporating technology into the business can mean the difference between success and failure,” Janet Pellegrini said. “This isn’t a day when you can open your door and just expect people to walk in.”
