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.

this is Italian at its finest. not nana's sauce but rather gourmet Italian food. this is a small restaurant, a great restaurant but a crowded restaurant. it is also a friendly neighborhood restaurant with a great staff and a menu like you rarely find. I guarantee you will fine menu items you have never seen before. be adventuresome,

Another superb visit to Dish to celebrate a special occasion and Dish didn't disappoint. We started with the Melanzane Grigliate Con Mozzarella Di Bufala which was delicious. The rigatoni alla scamorza was wonderfully done with a nice balance of flavors and a hit with our son. The Costada di Maiale was very flavorful and satisfying. All in all, a great... More

Excellent Italian meal - creative menu and attentive staff all combine to make for a very pleasurable dining experience in the Southside of Pittsburgh. We like to go before City Theatre performances as well.
