We stopped by on a Thursday evening without reservations. Probably not a good idea. We had a cold Peroni on draft while we waited for a table at the small bar just inside the door. Luckily someone did not show up for their 7 PM reservation, so we were in. I knew this was a good place when I could... More

If you love to explore wonderful dining establishments, you MUST try this place. The food is beyond description with something new and unusual all the time. People will actually line up outside before it opens at five so that they can get a seat at the bar if they don't have a reservation. Run by two native Italian brothers and... More

Let me put this out there first: I would never visit Pittsburgh without having dinner at Dish Osteria. We were in town to celebrate our anniversary and we enjoyed three wonderful meals over three nights. The first night was the best view in town and great food. The second night we walked to some excellent Thai served in the secret... More

Every once in a while we find a terrific little restaurant tucked in an old, storied neighborhood that, combined, provides a sense of place along with a meal of extreme sensory pleasure. Dish is one of those places. For 16 years (I'm told), Dish has been sending out authentic Italian/Sicilian goodies in what once was an Irish bar popular with... More

We went for a birthday party with nine people. We were seated promptly and served promptly. Usually it's such a problem with a big party. The food was really amazing. We tasted everyone else's food and it was really good I had the pork chops with the gnocchi and it was the best gnocchi I have ever had. This place... More

My husband and I visited for a date night and the razor clams were absolutely fabulous. The shrimp pasta was equally great, and the Tiramisu is heavenly. Make a reservation and enjoy!

Dish Osteria was recommended by a co-worker. It's tucked in an unassuming corner a couple blocks off Carson street. The wait staff was quick to get us settled and very nice. We ordered a grilled eggplant and fresh ricotta appetizer and grilled calamari, bothWere very good, especially the home made ricotta. For entrees we chose 2 house made pasta dishes... More

Walking through South side and happened past this lovely jewel. Didn't have reservations, and at 5:45 pm they did not have a table for our group of 3, but we were lucky enough to find place at the bar. The bartender let us sample a couple of wines to help with our selection. (Recommend the Primitivo) Both the insalada mista... More

Great atmosphere, wonderful bar! Italy has moved to the south side! The calamari is the best ever! The insalata di arance is fresh, superb and crisp! Homemade cavatelli delicious. Everything is good, fresh and original! Good drinks, a small but complete wine list. Excellent service !
