Dish is a small, cozy, and warm restaurant. The service is excellent (finally a place where the servers know what they are serving and can provide informed suggestions). The atmosphere is inviting, romantic, and intimate: sometimes, you even forget you are at a restaurant, as you could easily be in the living room of some good friends'.
And, dulcis in fundo, the food is just perfect. I love how they cook fish: you can really taste the good quality of the catch. Dishes are not overpowered by spices or sauces. I also like their desserts, which are tasty without being overly rich or buttery.
Let me mention three last things: 1) the bar (which is separate from the dining room) is just beautiful and the tenders can make excellent martinis and cocktails; 2) the two Sicilian guys who run the place are very friendly and welcoming hosts; 3) this is one of the very few bars/restaurants in Pittsburgh that has NO TV, so people can enjoy each other and what they are eating/drinking, instead of focusing on a sport game!
