This is a wonderful restaurant. Went with friends on Friday 6/6/14, had an excellent meal. Started with cocktails, my wife had the rum version, I had the rye, others had the vodka and mescal. The group shared the salt cod fritters and the grains starters, both were very good. I had the pork main, others had hanger steak, chicken, trout, and mussels. All were outstanding! Our group of friends go to different restaurants about once every four to six weeks, and we all agreed, this is one of the best we've been to. Highly recommend you try it, it is well worth it.

How great to have such a gem in Pittsburgh. Something different than the usually steak houses.
The atmosphere on the mezzanine was great and you could actually hear just your conversation , no one else's. Wine selection excellent ; had a hard time choosing. Great white alberino and superb Pinot noir!
We all had different dishes and everyone raved about each one. He veal was superb , walleye fish excellent. Duck was so different and tender. Unfortunately no room for dessert. Looks like I have to go back for dessert . Eating at the counter looks like fun...there you are watching the chefs prepare the dinner. Great stuff

There are many good restaurants in The Steel City. I have been to NACL for business and pleasure. It is always first rate. Sitting at the bar and overseeing the kitchen or speaking with the bar staff (two bars - have done both and enjoyed both) is the best. The food is very well prepared and seasonal. This is a top notch, really good restaurant. A "go to" place in Pittsburgh.

Love this place. The food was great, the beer selection was small, but had just enough choices. We sat at the communal tables which turned out to be pretty fun. I will definitely be going back soon.
