My husband and I went for an early dinner last night and cannot wait to return! Jamie, our server, was top notch! She was very informative about the menu and was just attentive enough without being over bearing. The food from start to finish was fabulous. I started with the octopus appetizer and it was as tasty and tender as... More

I visited here with our dinner club (5 people) on a week night. Our reservation had been made several weeks earlier for 6:30 PM. The restaurant called that day to confirm our reservation for 8:30! Wrong. When they realized their mistake they squeezed us in for 6:45. We arrived and were seated in the bar area. (They had moved two... More

This place is a great little hidden gem. The food offerings are amazing and some of the best food I've had in the city.

Many Italian restaurants in the US don't resemble anything close to real Italian food. Dish most definitely is real Italian food. My dear friends from Italy come to Pittsburgh twice a year and want to eat at Dish every time. The menu is small but the dishes are mighty. Gnocchi alla Bolognese and Pappardelle ai Funghi are two dishes that... More

We last reviewed Dish five years ago. In our numerous visits in the intervening years it has only improved. Last visit was New Year's Eve with family and the warm staff we've come to know and appreciate. After another outstanding dinner and dessert, we rang in the New Year in the bar, with champagne courtesy of owner Michele and best... More

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
