Great outdoor spot to enjoy Pitt campus and Schenley Park...and the food's pretty good too. I highly recommend the fried zucchini and the salads. Since we were having a light lunch we didn't try any of the entrees, but everything looked delicious.

My daughter and I had dinner at The Porch on a recent visit to the University of Pittsburgh. We both ordered different pizzas. They were huge! We could have shared just one pizza. We really enjoyed the view from the restaurant and loved the atmosphere....More

This is a unique restaurant and they grow all their own vegetables and herbs. Limited menu, but very good.

No steps I saw, not sure what that referred to...I can't say for sure, but we went off hours on a week day and it was still reasonably busy....I bet it's busy on a Sunday...just a guess.

I don't believe that they have a gluten-free menu but they can accommodate gluten free requests.
