  • "Overall, very nice restaurant. Good wine list and very good food. While there is a scenic view overlooking the horse track, the dining room is somewhat sterile."

  • "I rank the crabcakes at Bistecca among the best I've eaten in any restaurant; and that includes dozens of restaurants in the Chesapeake Bay area."

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed this steak-house in the Meadowlands casino complex. The food was outstanding. The steak and seafood was cooked perfectly and the accompaniments we chose were very well done. Service was exceptional with a friendly and knowledgeable wait staff. They gave the impression of being genuinely happy to have us there, as opposed to obligated to engage us. I will visit this restaurant again."

  • "The dinner special was great. 24 oz. porterhouse for two was just right.."

  • "The food and service were great. Would recommend and go there again. It is pricey."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Every time we go, we have a great meal and always a great wait staff. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for an evening out. And if you like to gamble, the casino is right outside the restaurant. That being said, if you do not like smoke or the casino atmosphere, then walk quickly through as you have to pass through the casino to get to the great food and service."

  • "We dined with a group of 3 couples and, as usual, had a lovely night. The food was very good, although the gnocchi (one of my favorites) seems to have changed again and, while it is delicious, has been declining in quality since I've started ordering it as a side dish. The steaks were fantastic and cooked perfectly. Salads were also tasty, and the wine is always delicious."

  • "I have been to Bistecca several times now, and each time I go, I enjoy it more and more. There is a server named Sarah we try to get every single time too, so she's definitely a good asset to Bistecca. We love the booths, the food is very delicious, I like the way the place is set up, making reservations is easy, and the employees are very nice. The prices are very fair, and it's just overall a great place and I have recommended it to several people already. I also love the fact that there are private rooms for parties and other groups so we will be utilizing that eventually, as well. Thank you!"

  • "The crab cakes are outstanding. Our meal was excellent as was the service. No rushing us out of the restaurant. A very enjoyable meal experience. Would dine here again."

  • "Service was great and the food was very good. My family and I really enjoyed the experience"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I think its inappropriate to have to pay for sides when the dinner prices are already so high. Maybe raise the prices a little on the dinner and allow for one side and one salad. It just looks like you are penny (or dollar) pinching every bit out of your diner's pockets. The food was very good, but we will only be back for VERY special occasions as this was very expensive for 4 people ($250). However we knew that going in and still came this time."

  • "If you love thick cut steaks this is the place for you. Also nice toppings and sauces."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Bistecca never disappoints! They seated us in a private room on the side. Many restaurants you feel like you are cast aside when seated out of the "Main" area, but we never looked for our server. Stephanie was WONDERFUL and very attentive even though we had our own space. Eating there is very relaxing. They have mastered the timing of everything. You are not still eating your salad when your main dish is arriving. The pace is slow and all the food is wonderful. I always go there for the filet (melts in your mouth). I often wonder why they even give out the steak knives bc you do not need them everything is super tender. We all had steak but, my son had the salmon and ate every bite! We will definitely dine there again!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Pleasant, comfortable and relaxing. Quiet considering it's located above a casino. Highly recommend steaks. Sides are to be shared, More than large enough for two people. Would go again."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Wonderful evening would like it if they had a chocolate desert but they even gave coupon for desert the next time would go again and again after this visit"

  • "Had the cowboy ribeye and cheese potatos Steak was chewy and not the flavor I expected from that cut, no flavor."
    Dined on 2/19/2014
  • "I took my wife for a Valentine's Day dinner. Bistecca advertised lobster tail. However, none was available when we arrived. It was Valentine's Day. They should have anticipated this being a popular choice and should have had a sufficient quantity on hand. Also, we heard a server offer drink specials to the table next to us. Our server did not do this. They were offering a drink my wife would have liked. We had already ordered drinks. All in all, a very disappointing experience for my wife.."

  • "I absolutely love this place. this is the second time we have dined there. and the service is great drinks are fab , food is fab. I can't say enough ... I will be back again for a 3rd round"

  • "Excellent dinner & our server was great, we both had steaks which were excellent! It is expensive but worth it,"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Service was excellent! She was knowledgable and helpful with the menu. Very professional and friendly. We enjoyed the lobster bisque. My husband said his Caesar salad was kind of bland. I ordered my favorite cut. The 13oz ribeye. Although it was cooked properly at medium rare, the meat seemed dry or chewy to me. My husband enjoyed his strip steak with some kind of blue cheese sauce and I thought I potatoes augratin were good. We will likely try Bistecca again. Maybe I will try the filet next time."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time, and the only suggestion would be I explained this was a dinner for our son's birthday and I think a desert should have been offered for this we did order desert but it would have been a nice touch"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We were searching for the perfect spot for my birthday and we found it last Thursday! The meal was incredible and the service was outstanding... the waitress was so knowledgeable in regards to the menu and she was so mannerly and treated us like royalty. It was just such a nice experience that I will treasure and repeat. I will also recommend it to my friends. Thank you for a wonderful evening!"

  • "Ask for Ashley. She was extremely attentive. No bad attitude.She did her job wonderfully. I was worried before I arrived,after reading all of the negative reviews on line. The wine list is great,the filet I had was probably one of the best ever. Everything is ala carte so it does tend to be overpriced.. I think they need to add a starch and vegtable or at least a small house salad included in the price of entrée. It was $200.00 not including tip for 2 people. That's one steak each,one salad each,one half portion appetizer for one. 3 glasses of wine and 2 martinis. Do not want to forget the one cup of coffee."
    Dined on 1/28/2014
  • "The good: Crabcake was amazing and perfect. My steak was very good - I had the Kansas City Strip. Peppercorn Cognac Sauce was out of this world and a nice addition that other restaurants don't offer. Our server was knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. He was also funny - after dessert and coffee he asked if there was anything else he could bring us and then said "we could start all over again..." =) Not so good: My husband's filet was not prepared as asked but he ate it anyway and he said that it was dry and not very flavorful. He ordered medium rare and it came medium. We were a little disappointed that the appetizer and peppercorn sauce were the highlights of our meal - wish it would've been the steak!"

  • "Food is good, but for same money go to Pittsburgh and visit Ruth's Chris, Capitol Grille, or Mortons. Stinks walking through the smokey casino both ways to get your dinner. The restaurant needs its own entrance from outside."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Inexpensive by no means but that's ok because the two times I have dined at Bistecca, the food and service was top notch. I just hope the prices don't go up because of my affirmation, lol :) It's a really enjoyable dining experience for, family, a couple, or that extra special friendship to enjoy."

  • "Bistecca is right up there with the "well known" Pittsburgh restaurants known for good steaks. Service is great too."

  • "We had a group of field guys come in for our Christmas Dinner The waiter asked if we had been there and we said no. His response, "I can tell by looking at you, you probably have never been here." We found that totally inappropriate and will not done in your establishment again. Thanks"
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "The steaks are good, but you will not find a better crabcake in Pittsburgh."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We had a great experience! It was a quiet restaurant, 2 private party rooms (holds 14 or 18), view of racetrack...it would be cool if horses were running!, great food (yet pricey), and good service - our waitress was a bit sassy but in a funny way - I think she read the vibes of her guests and played along. I rarely give a 100% rating, but we were very pleased with our experience. Try it out!"
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "The service is perfect and the staff knowledgeable. The food was very good and the presentation pleasing. However, the room does not handle noise and conversation. I have visited many restaurants with the sense of private conversation at the table. This one does not. If this is not a bother then you cannot go wrong dining in Bistecca."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "This was our first time here and the atmosphere is romantic, which is what we were looking for. Unfortunately the food was not as good as we had hoped. First my husband ordered one item and was brought a different type of steak and of course it was more expensive and we were charged for the item. The steaks were extremely tender but had very little flavor and the side dishes were unfortunately the same. The meal for two was about $150.00 and unfortunately was not up to par for the money. We have dined at Andrew steakhouse at the rivers casino and this pales in comparison for food taste."
