“A Pittsburgh neighborhood”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

This is a very large area, shopping theaters, restaurants, bars, pizza houses. It just always seems so bustling and busy . Beyond the commercial area, the houses are architectually ecletic, a wide variey of old and new, large single family homes,lots of apartment buildings of all descriptions.

“Squirrel Hill”
Reviewed 14 January 2013

I went to the Bangkok Balcony a couple times. They have good pad thai. I like the atmosphere in Squirrel Hill. I'm from upstate NY. It reminds me of Ithaca, made me feel at home.

I love going to Squirrel Hill for dinner or lunch and walking off the calories on Forbes by checking out all of the little shops.

“Visitors add this location”
Reviewed 17 December 2012 via mobile

The shops range from shoes to the new Cherry antiques shop - which features some very cool stuff. There are also some great ethnic shops with beautiful moraccan goods, you can buy wonderful instruments and music - we saw a rosewood bagpipe for $65. We bought some qualityfine jewelry and the restaurants are fun. We were disappointedthat the Argentinian cafe tango was closed, but the tea place soothed us. Pamela s pancakes is a Pittsburgh legend and Cafe 64 c - is ok. There are excellent pizza and ethnic choices and kosher options ( not always findable in the burgh).
