Delightful birthday meal with friends

We were celebrating a good friends special birthday who frequent this restaurant. Definitely a gem of the South Side. Appetizers and salads were delicious and shared multiple homemade pasta dishes; each one had interesting and unique flavors. Service could not have been better and although I've... read more

Gnocchi light as a feather, baccala soup the best I ever tasted, tiny and perfect. A jewel. Definitely fun and lovely atmosphere. We braved the elements and it was worth it

Quiet, classy atmosphere. The owners are Italian, I believe. Helpful staff. GREAT food, unique menu, decent bar. The rigatoni is excellent. Pricey, but worth it. Reservations are probably a good idea.

Came here based on various recommendations and enjoyed ourselves very much. Our server was pleasant and helpful. Small but nice wine list. I had the Gigliata de Pesci nicely done, I'll be picky and say the scallop had a little more grille char taste than I'd prefer. My three tablemates loved their pasta dishes recommended by the server, wife's tagliatelli... More

The restaurant is small; as a result, the tables are very close together and it is quite noisy. Don't let this dissuade you from going, however, as the food is outstanding. Every course offers creative combinations. The gnocchi with short rib "ragu" melts in your mouth. Some menu items remain constant; others change daily. The pastas and desserts are all... More

When we sat down and ordered drinks our male server mentions that the table we are sitting in, is reserved for... More

This restaurant was one of the better restaurants that we experienced in Pittsburgh. Every dish was amazing and the Braised Rib with gnocchi was out of this world. The veal was another amazing entree. Definitely want to come here again on the next trip to Pittsburgh! The chocolate bread pudding was much lighter than expected and perfect for a dessert.

My fiance and I had dinner at DISH on 11/25/2015. Our thoughts: 1. We are both native New Yorkers and our threshold for fine Italian food is high. This restaurant surpassed all our expectations and was in one word spectacular. 2. Restaurant has a great vibe and lovely ambiance. 3. Service was excellent. 4. All facets of our meal were... More

We celebrated her birthday here. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy. The restaurant is small in size, but we made grand memories here. The owner greeted us at our table as we dined. We visited with 3 couples. And every dish we had was better than the next. The price was less than I expected for such excellent food and... More

I dined here with my wife and teen daughter on Saturday while were visiting Pittsburgh and loved every minute of it. Ambiance: located off the main drag on the Southside, this a tiny, intimate restaurant -- low lights, happy people. Wine/drinks: I had a special maple Manhattan that was remarkable -- maple but not sweet. The Wine was refreshingly under-priced.... More
