"Surprise in Southside"

Dish Osteria on Pittsburgh's Southside is a hidden gem of Italian goodness! Rather inconspicuous and nestled on one of the backstreets, it is surprisingly warm and welcoming upon entrance. The old wooden bar is magnificent and echoes 19th century days gone by. The menu is not large, but filled... read more

Dish Osteria is THE best italian restaurant in Pittsburgh. My wife and I ate there last night and were so pleased with the friendly owner, Gina (our server), the atmosphere, and the food. The menu is diverse, but authentic italian, unlike any we eaten in Pittsburgh. It reminded us so much of Italy...

Treat yourself to amazing food on the Southside. Begin the evening with a happy hour drink and an appetizer. Head to the dining room for a special treat! By the way...DISH is off the main street but easy to locate. Parking can be difficult, but is free after six, at the meters. Park a couple of streets parallel and behind... More

The branzini just screamed summer. An excellent meal. Fresh corn salad with a perfectly executed piece of fish. Don't miss this place so worth it.

Saturday evening dinner for 2 at 9 PM. We saved Dish Osteria as the highlight dinning of our 4 day visit to Pittsburgh, but our experience was less than our expectations which were based on other reviews. It still was an enjoyable evening, but overall it was not great Italian food. Perhaps we just made poor menu picks. Our starters... More

Small restaurant on Pgh south side. Parking is a problem, so go early. Limited menu. Our party had quail, tuna, pasta, clams and scallops. Everyone loved their dinners. Chocolate bread pudding and Lemoncello were excellent. Tends to get very crowded as the evening progresses. No tables larger than 6 people, mainly 2 and 4. Lovely old bar. Happy hour 5-7.

Definitely not to be missed if you visit Pittsburgh. Exceptional food. The Rigatoni alla Scamorza is one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had anywhere. Friendly atmosphere, we enjoyed meeting the people at the next table who are regulars. Attentive, knowledgeable service. A great evening.

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 in a residential part of... More
