For those who may not know, Dish, a staple of regular Pittsburgh restaurant-goers, closed last Saturday night. We were there on Wednesday. As always, the place was packed and the dishes deep. Addio!

After years of having friends and family rave about this place, we finally made it. However, only a few days before they are closing to pursue life. This was one of the best meals I have ever had. The freshness, quality, and use of flavors were outstanding. The ambiance was great. The staff is like one giant family haveing your... More

What a wonderful find. We were only in Pittsburgh a few nights, but ate here one of those nights and LOVED it. Staff was polite and helpful, food was plentiful and most import - perfectly prepared! If you're staying in the city, you may want to Uber to the restaurant. We did not see a ton of parking spaces in... More

My husband and I went for an early dinner last night and cannot wait to return! Jamie, our server, was top notch! She was very informative about the menu and was just attentive enough without being over bearing. The food from start to finish was fabulous. I started with the octopus appetizer and it was as tasty and tender as... More

I visited here with our dinner club (5 people) on a week night. Our reservation had been made several weeks earlier for 6:30 PM. The restaurant called that day to confirm our reservation for 8:30! Wrong. When they realized their mistake they squeezed us in for 6:45. We arrived and were seated in the bar area. (They had moved two... More

Many Italian restaurants in the US don't resemble anything close to real Italian food. Dish most definitely is real Italian food. My dear friends from Italy come to Pittsburgh twice a year and want to eat at Dish every time. The menu is small but the dishes are mighty. Gnocchi alla Bolognese and Pappardelle ai Funghi are two dishes that... More

We last reviewed Dish five years ago. In our numerous visits in the intervening years it has only improved. Last visit was New Year's Eve with family and the warm staff we've come to know and appreciate. After another outstanding dinner and dessert, we rang in the New Year in the bar, with champagne courtesy of owner Michele and best... More

My family and I were in Pittsburgh for the holidays. After a long day of travel, we found this place just down the street and I am so glad we did. It would be easy to walk right by this place, but it is very comfortable and well-appointed inside. I opted for the Gnocchi at the suggestion of our server... More
