Dish is so quaint. Not many tables but they seem to make the space work. Service was excellent. Food was amazing. I would highly recommend the calamari appetizer. It's grilled to perfection. Our main dishes were also fantastic, the gnocchi with lamb and the grigliata mista. Finished with the lemon cheesecake, awesome!!! Can't wait to go back.

Truly one of the best meals of my life. Chef Michele's flavor profiles are just genius. The fettuce con funghi my wife had was superb and highly recommended. The wait staff is knowledgeable and helpful without being intrusive. All around a must in Pittsburgh.

After many years I still like going back to this SouthSide trattoria. Solid cocktails, approachable wine list and delicious Mediterranean cuisine served up by a pleasant and knowledgeable staff. A winning combination

We have never had a bad meal at Dish. The food is always fresh and the service is great. We have gone there several times with reservations or just sat at the bar without reservations. The Rigatoni alla Scamorza is an awesome dish.

I have eaten several times at this restaurant and I must say that it is a favorite of everyone in our family. The food is always very good and mad with fresh ingredients. Always an interesting menu. Great service and a wonderful place for couples or families. A definite must try!

It has been a while since I have eaten here so tried it again. The place was packed on a Monday night and we had to wait for our reservations. The front room was very crowded and we were essentially standing on top of people eating. The back room, where we ate, was cozier and quieter so we had a... More

This was my third visit to Dish, a place I found by accident several years ago while driving around the block looking for a place to park to visit another restaurant. It is located in South Pittsburgh, several blocks south of the Carson Street strip of restaurants and clubs in what at first glance would appear to be a house.... More

This restaurant is tucked into a side street in the Southside of Pittsburgh. Get your maps out folks and try it. The ambiance, the attentive staff, the quaint decor were just the start. The bartender is a genius and mixes every drink with love and a smile. The owner greets you and seats you. The dishes are hard to describe.... More

Had a wonderful meal as usual at this place. Have not been disappointed yet. I had pasta with seafood and my wife had a rolled pork entree with gnocchi. The gnocchi had no sauce but it was one of the best versions I ever had. Service was excellent and the wine selection was very good. The pasta is always cooked... More
