My husband read about this restaurant on trip advisor while on a quick trip to the burg. We got there late on Friday night without reservations which was a mistake. The host tried his best to get us a table in the dining room but they were completely booked. They had 1 table in their cozy bar which was perfect... More

We had Dish recommended to us by a hotel concierge who raved about it but we were very disappointed. I had told him we were looking for a good Italian restaurant and he had nothing but good things to say about it. The experience began with 25 minutes (no exaggeration) of searching up and down narrow one way streets for... More

From the moment you enter (actually even our driver asked beforehand how we'd heard of this local's favorite), you know you're in the "right place". I was catching up with an old college friend who was in Pittsburgh on business and his local colleague recommended Dish Osteria. The bar service, the service staff (Jamie is beyond super), and the food,... More

This is the most delicious meal we've had in Pittsburgh in a long time. We have wanted to try Dish for a while and finally had the time and reason to visit. I can't believe we waited this long- it was positively delicious! The food was divine and the service superb. Our server was very attentive yet gave us our... More

We had the calamari and man was it delicious!! I didn't think I would be a fan of calamari that's not breaded...wrong! Very cute little place with a great atmosphere!

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
