My family and I were in Pittsburgh for the holidays. After a long day of travel, we found this place just down the street and I am so glad we did. It would be easy to walk right by this place, but it is very comfortable and well-appointed inside. I opted for the Gnocchi at the suggestion of our server... More

We had a wonderful dining experience at Dish. This small restaurant is tucked away off the main drag of the South Side. It is charming on the outside and inside. Our group of five has been having a Christmas meal together for many years. This was probably the best one ever. Our server Gina was outstanding on knowledge of the... More

Great dining experience, from beginning to end. Very romantic ambiance, friendly and attentive staff, and wonderful Italian cuisine. Ignore the reviews about lousy parking (it's the South Side, for goodness sake - what do you expect?) and cramped seating. The restaurant is, indeed, very intimate. If you want big and splashy, I suggest perhaps Bravo or Atria's. The Italian chains... More

My husband and I came here for three days. After looking at all of the reviews, this place came up. Unfortunately, the reviews should have mentioned the PERFECTLY seasoned steak and fish! The exquisite wine list and staff. This is definitely my favorite favorite carpaccio appetizer! The lemon will blow your taste buds. The steak...perfectly seasoned. The seafood...YES! Tiny neighborhood.... More

We loved our meal at Dish Osteria. Everything was delicious, the portions were perfectly sized and the service was excellent. We would have gladly eaten there again during our short stay in Pittsburgh.

Our server was top notch! He gave us proper wine service. We had the grilled calamari appetizer, the pappardelle and rigatoni pastas, and mango cake and tiramisu for dessert. Yum yum yum

We had dinner and drinks at the bar here on a Friday night. Great drinks and very personable bartender (can't remember her name). Menu is good and food was delicious. I see why this place gets high ratings. It's small so definitely reserve in advance!!

Dined here before a family outing in the city and it was one of the best meals any of us ever had. Service was amazing and the restaurant itself is cozy and inviting. My daughter and her husband had pasta and I had the pork chop. It was good, but the pasta was amazing.

Some of the best Italian I have had outside of Italy. We tried the pulpo and calamari salad for starters and had the spaghetti frutti di mare and pappardelle as main courses. Highly recommended you eat here but be sure to make reservations! It's packed all the time

Was in Pittsburgh for the weekend with my wife. Went to Dish because of the reviews and I have to say that this restaurant was fantastic. Service, food quality, atmosphere were all top notch. Liked it so much that I tried to make a reservation a day later but restaurant is closed on Sunday's.

Thank Robert G
