Great food, great service & open late!!!

We were looking for a place to get good food after Pens hockey games. It is very difficult to find restaurants that aren't crappy chains that serve food late. We were so happy to hear about Dish. They have great food and great service. The only drawback would be parking as this is located right... read more

Dish is a local favorite located a few blocks off the the Main Street. I have gone many times over the years and it never disappoints. They offer Italian influenced fare and have a good wine list in the tradition of an osteria. Although there are some seasonal changes and daily specials, they maintain some core items. My personal favorite... More

Excellent food & wine. I have traveled in Italy and not many Italian restaurants in the US come close, but DISH is an exception. Small and smart, this eatery offers new twists on traditional Italian fare. Menus changes frequently and a reservation is a good idea. Enjoy!

We were staying in Southside, on nearby Sarah Street and our host recommended this restaurant. It was an easy walk through a pleasant neighborhood. We were on the first night of a 10-day trip, and were glad to find a good place to help celebrate the occasion. We arrived without a reservation, around 6:30 on a Monday evening, and despite...

This little place is an fantastic example of an authentic Italian Osteria, in the sense that dishes aren't the most traditional items on an Italian restaurant menu, but rather more elaborate and creative renditions of these plates. We landed here in a larger than average group (7) and although the place is small, they weren't overwhelmed and had us seated... More

We went on a Tuesday night for dinner and it was still pretty packed. Reservations is recommended. Its small and cozy inside, with a bar upfront. The seafood fare is pretty awesome and so are the pastas. We wish there was a thin crust pizza on the menu. That would "round" it up nicely ;)

Dish is probably my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. It has never disappointed me. The food is the best Italian food I have had in the US. Amazing!!! I would recommend this place to anyone, from anywhere, at anytime.

It's Italian. It's seafood. Its delicious. Located on the Southside of Pittsburgh which is both Old Pittsburgh and funky Pittsburgh.

If you're looking for a quiet little restaurant to enjoy an intimate conversation, this is NOT the place to go, because the original tin ceilings of the establishment echo everyone's conversation, and it's quite distracting. That being said, the food is awesome, and homemade. The waitstaff is not particularly friendly, but I overlook that to partake in the delicious fare.

Dish has quietly served good food for many years. The menu is diverse, the prices are reasonable, and the dishes are always well executed. Note that it is a little loud.
