My review is of the bar only - we didn't eat here. We went on a Wednesday evening to have a few drinks. I had never been to Casbah before, so I was happy to try it out. The bar is very cool - with a fish motif. It's trendy, and the drinks are a little pricey ($13 for a... More

An interesting mix of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. Interesting and laid back atmosphere and great for lunch or dinner. Freshly cooked and reasonably priced.

My family of 8 was recently in town to celebrate a family occasion. We chose Casbah based on online reviews, and we finished the evening as complete enthusiasts for this culinary delight. Our waiter, Joseph, was professional and attentive, and he guided us to some spectacular gastronomical choices. Three of us had the duck, and raves abounded. I recommend it... More

Everything was excellent from the menu, preparation, service and outdoor patio. We had everything from appetizers to desserts and it was all great. The food was very fresh and perfectly prepared.

Went with a group of 60+ people. Service was outstanding and the food was very good as well. Didn't get to explore the whole menu because of the large group - but everything we tried was top shelf. Would love to go back with smaller group.

I only wish we had taken more people, so we could have tried more of Casbah's delectable courses. Whatever you do, do not miss the grilled asparagus appetizer, which was one of the best dishes I've ever eaten. Perfectly cooked pasta ..... light delicious seafood.....Casbah features beautiful, healthy food with friendly, knowledgeable service.

Casbah had a very tropical feel. We sat at the bar before ordering and one of the bartenders made us a special tequilla drink that was not on the menu. It was so good we had two!!! We sat inside the dining area as it was airconditioned. We ordered the fresh pasta, which was delicious. We also had one of... More

Casbah is a local favorite in Pittsburgh, and for good reason. The atmosphere is nice, with both indoor and outdoor seating. The service was excellent, and the food was even better. We had the cheese tray to start, with selections from Spain, France and US. I had the pork chops, which were flavorful and delicious -- the accompanying kale was... More

My husband and I recently dined here for his birthday. We have eaten at this restaurant many times. Each time we have been here, it has been terrific. The entrees are consistently good. On this visit, we had the swordfish and red pepper casereccia. Both were excellent. The pork chop is also a delicious entree choice. The restaurant has a... More

We eat there every time we visit Pittsburgh. Love the octopus and any of the pasta dishes. A good place to try for lunch or dinner.
