    This was our second time at Pitch. We made sure to make a reservation this go-round for a busy Saturday night birthday celebration for 6. The food,as always was TOP Notch! Calamari,olive bowl,and fried eggplant were our appetizers and all were wonderful. You can't go wrong with any of their pizzas. Top one of the night was the meatball. Ladies, make sure to order a Galorious P martini! Our waitress was awesome as well. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We will return and have already spread the word to friends and family.

    If you are going to allow for reservations space them enough apart. Food was great but would've been happy to have made a later reservation and done things prior rather than show up at time we booked and wait for an hour in the waiting area.

    Traveling from Kansas City to enjoy a day at the Omaha Zoo I looked up restaurants to enjoy a nice meal before we headed back home. I had planned to visit the Old Market area but kept finding rave reviews of Pitch. Seeing that it was on the list of TOP 100 "hot spot" restaurants in America was very intriguing, so we made reservations asking for a table in a quiet section of the restaurant as many reviews hit on the topic of the noise level, mostly near the bar. Well, our table was as far removed from the bar as you could get and it was perfect. Our server was outstanding, the food was amazing and we loved every minute we were there. Do not miss the opportunity to eat here!! I have already told people in KC that it's worth the drive :)

    We have had great food & drinks at Pitch and I love the energetic atmosphere, however when I first arrive it takes me awhile to become accustomed to the "energetic" noise level. I think it is really loud. I think the management could take it down a notch and still have that feeling of energy. Pitch isn't a place I would go with other couples to spend the evening & socialize but my young 20 something kids like it. And the food is excellent!

    Pitch is a really great restaurant, with excellent food and service. The biggest failure is that the noise level and especially the music, which is way too loud. It is so noisy that it is impossible to make conversation across a table. Why managers allow this in any restaurant is beyond me. I would recommend the take-out, or go alone. If you want to have a conversation with friends this is not the place, unfortunately.

    The food was great. Good wine, beer and drink menu. Service was great as well. We had reservations and were seated right away. All good things. However, it was very loud especially in the bar area where we were seated. When we inquired as to the volume of the music, our hostess said she would turn it down a bit. After she did that, there was a noticeable decrease in not only the volume of the music but in the volume of the voices of patrons. We no longer had to try to yell for conversations to be heard. We still had to speak loudly and crane over the table to hear conversations, but at least we could hear each other. Great job for listening to our needs and acting on them.

    We used open table to make our reservation and I would definitely use it again! There was great communication about reservation confirmation and it was so easy to use. Our girls night out was so fun and only made better by our server, the food and the cool vibe Pitch has! Our server made great recommendations for us and everything we ordered was amazing! The restaurant was packed, but you would've never know it by how quickly our food and drinks came! The only issue our group agreed on was how loud it was in there. Loud music combined with a full house made it hard to hear/talk to one another. Overall a fabulous experience! Can't wait to go back!

    We loved Pitch! My son who lives in the Dundee area had been here a few times and recommended it for my other son's 18th birthday. We brought a cake and they presented it and took care of everything. The service was outstanding. Our waiter and the general staff all seemed sincerely happy to be there. So refreshing. The food was great - my kids loved the pizza, we also had calamari, coal fired wings and salad and some truffle fries. There were six of us there, with beverages and food, our ticket was extremely reasonable. We will definitely be back. I always am honest on reviews, I would not say it if it was not deserved.

    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Overall the food was quite good and the beer was cold. Our group of six shared a long table with a family of six and then a younger couple after the family left. The Mia pizza was okay, but we all thought it was too expensive given its size. My wife and I split a chop salad, which was good call because the salads are quite large...there was an ample amount for both of us. The service was great and the ambiance vibrant, but the restaurant is very noisy so if you are looking for a quiet romantic dinner look elsewhere. Parking is always a problem in Dundee, so plan ahead and give yourself an extra 5 or 10 minutes to park.

    We had a lunch at Pitch with seven of us from our school. The food was great; however, many in our party were surprised how slow the food prep was for our table. It was very slow in the restaurant and it took a long time to get our food. One of our party commented too that the special of the day - turkey burger was quite pricey for a lunch special. Overall everyone like their food and I would come back.

    this is the second time that I have left feeling like I've been publicly shamed. I was late for the reservation, trying to find a parking place. I admit that was my fault. I was greeted with the first admonishment that my reservation was almost given away. Fair enough, and had they given it away, I would have been disappointed, but would have understood. Then the 2nd hostess came by and told me yet again that I almost lost the reservation, she then proceeded to tell me that I should have called, that they are busy and can't accommodate people who are going to be late, etc. etc..... okay... I got it, I felt badly the first time I was scolded, 2nd time over the top. not worth the humiliation. Clearly they don't need my business.

    I've dined here several times and the food/service never disappoint. We waited 20 minutes even tough we had a reservation, but the owner immediately had two orders of their amazing meatballs with sauce and bread dropped on our table the second we sat down to apologize for the wait. I've had several pizzas and appetizers here and have yet to find one that wasn't liked. My girlfriend and I especially love the Marsala pizza goat cheese, figs, pears, and fresh arugula. The key to this place is that everything is crafted for you from cocktails to food. The pizza ovens produce the best crust and the chef puts the most unique and fresh ingredients on top. Fresh herbs, great sauce, savory meats, and awesome service keep me coming back to this gem.

    Our group has been to PITCH numerous times and we have the same complaint. The pizza, meatballs, onion rings, brussel sprouts were all delicious. The wait staff is attentive and excellent, but we will not return to Pitch. The noise level is untolerable in there. Absolutely obnoxious. Also, Willy Thiesen needs to include PITCH BLACK wine on the happy hour choices. c'mon! Please install carpeting and put some sort of decoratvie insulation on the ceiling to muffle the noise level in there. Good bye.

    We read great reviews of Pitch and were not disappointed! The dishes, every single one, were innovative combinations of tastes and textures rarely found in restaurants. The chef is creative and accomplished and our service was excellent. Our one minus was that it was hard to converse without talking loudly. Had there been more than four of us one end of the table would not have been able to hear the other. However, so much of that had to do with a very full restaurant full of diners having a good time. Definitely make reservations!
