Definitely one of my favorite restaurants. Never had a bad meal here. Spent Easter dinner with my family here for the 2nd year in a row. Had the pea risotto and carrot puree this time and both were delicious. My family loves the cavatelli. Our waitress was wonderful and so were the other servers who visited our table.

I had the half chicken and it was to die for! Also the hummus and the calamari app were on point!! The waiter was really great for recommendations as well. I have been to many high end pittsburgh restaurants and I’d say this is probably top 3 meals I’ve ever had. We will definitely be returning.

Casbah is expensive but not too, too much and worth every penny. The food is always good and if you are planning a special occasion, it won't break the bank and you won't be disappointed.

The food at Casbah is very nice, not what I would call fabulous, but consistently good enough to feel like a treat. It is an exceptionally pleasant place to have a leisurely meal. The tables are far enough apart and the noise level low enough that you can chat with your companions comfortably. Service is excellent- neither slow, nor rushed. I have often chosen it for a celebration, and will continue to do so. Reliably good.

Casbah was excellent overall. The menu is somewhat limited but with enough variety to satisfy most diners. The dining rooms offer a choice between the extremely tight and loud inside and the more spacious and quiet outside, which unfortunately is furnished with patio tables.

Being from out of town we felt the food was on par with with a Manhattan restaurant. The only criticism was the service was so good, that we were done in under an hour and felt rushed, which didn't match the atmosphere of the Casbah.

Wonderful meal at Casbah. The waiter was very knowledgeable and welcoming. We shared a fantastic calamari and rock shrimp starter - lightly battered and fried; and then shared a fantastic pasta - Casareccia with scallops and crab. The scallops were perfectly cooked and the pasta and sauce were delicious. The main courses - one of us had the Haddock and the other had the lamb - were both quite good. We topped it all off with a Butterscotch pot de creme. The wine list is also very good. Nice place - with a good neighborhood feel. Looking forward to going back on our next trip to Pittsburgh.

Outstanding food and service. Our server, Megan was excellent. We would like to acknowledge the outstanding young man who bussed our table and brought our appetizer and checked on us. He was superb. One example was when he described the cheese course to my wife, then turned to me to repeat the description" in case I missed it", which, in fact, I did because of a hearing problem. I understand that he is a high school student but if he continues in the hospitality industry he will be a shining star. Bravo! Big Burrito.

Casbah is usually a great choice for dinner. As a party of three, we were seated at a table for 6. After we were seated, the hostess moved us to a table for four. She poured water for us, and we sat there about ten minutes. She then came back, and asked if we could move back to the first table again, as she wanted to combine our table with three other empty four tops. We obliged, but come on, get your act together. I had a pork chop that was as tough as any piece of meat Ive ever had. The server never came back to check on our water, or to see if we needed anything. She didnt seem happy, and if that's the case, dont work in the hospitality industry. A serious serious mess that should not have happened.

Our waitress was very amiable and helpful when we were stuck as to what to order. Tuna tartare, pork chop, and pasta were all first-rate. Bread pudding almost a little too big and was good but nothing outstanding. Maybe concentrate more of the chocolate and raspberries in less bread cubes? My wife said apple pie was excellent and she is a tough judge of apple pie. All in all, the bread pudding ever so slight mis-step did not detract whatsoever from the overall first rate food and great dining experience overall!

Nice varied menu, too. We look forward to visiting again when in Pittsburgh.
