Foodies in Pittsburgh thrive in a value driven Steel Town surrounding by mountains & skyscapes. Wow , sure the working crowd is allowed to leave their ties on.. But you can just change up your shirts & sweaters in most good restaurants with your blue jeans. Nice. Of the Top 50 tripadvisor restaurants, 35 really won't Singe your wallet. Can... More

My wife and I along with another couple enjoyed an excellent meal at Dish before a 9:00 PM City Theater performance. As a Southside restaurant to have a delicious mean before the show and park once it really can't be beat. There are not a lot of tables so make your reservation when you get your theater tickets. Allow 1.5... More

My wife and I were looking for a neighborhood authentic Italian restaurant. We found it at "Dish!" The portions were "not too much... not too little." Especially enjoyed the gnocchi bolognese! A wonderful evening...

I had dinner with friends at The Dish just a few days ago and thought it was really great......we did have to wait for a table even though we had reservations, but that wasn't a hardship. It's a small restaurant and very busy. It was worth the wait! I had the scallop appetizer that was delicious, and my friends shared... More

Great atmosphere--small rooms, tin ceilings. Exceptional service--waiter was well informed as to the food and its prep, and didn't rush us through dinner. Food was very good: my husband's pork chop was awesome; my pasta dish was a little too dry. Our salads were tasty but overdressed. Good wine selection.

The girlfriend took me here for my birthday yesterday. It was a great experience. First off the location is cute and quant. It has an old style to it that makes it interesting. They have a very good dink menu. We started with a grilled eggplant and mozzarella dish that was out of this work. I could have eaten it... More

My husband and I just had dinner at Dish. Very good. I had mixed grill which included salmon, shrimp, scallop & squid. My husband had gnocchi with meat sauce; tender gnocchi! Also had a great appetizer of crostini with smoked mozzarella, mushrooms and ham. All in all nice meal.

Hands down best meal I've ever had, and that's saying something. I had the soft shell crab appetizer. Simply life changing.
