Usually love the brunch, and the orichiette with chicken, but was very surprised that for the first time it was not good. Overly salted and the chicken was overdone and tough.

This was our first time at Casbah and we had a great experience. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. The free valet is a great convenience since parking is close to impossible around there. We look forward to going back soon.

My husband I went for Valentines Day (a day early). Still the place was completely packed on a Thursday night. The parking is easy with free valet. Our server was wonderful, very attentive without being in our faces all the time. The food was the star of the show: Delicious cheeses on the cheese board and the short rib was out of this world. I had the salmon which was very good, but I envied my husband eating the short rib. All in all, it was a delicious meal. I don’t know how we lived in Pittsburgh for 17 years and this was our first trip to Casbh. We are going back for Brunch on Sunday. Yay!

We went for our son's birthday. Amazing food, excellent service and they even wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate on my son's dessert plate - nice touch. The menu is seasonal. We were here in February 2020. I highly recommend the sea bass.

Casbah particularly but also all of the Big Burrito group restaurants have long been our absolute favorite dining experiences. We have never been disappointed but surely our Casbah favorite menu selection is the casarichia... amazing always!!! Although we now reside in the Columbus, Ohio area we will faithfully return to the Big Burrito group restaurants whenever possible. Thank you!!! Albert & Barbara Nalli

Good meal with our college kids. Our table enjoyed the scallops, beef ravioli, and pork chop. The upside down Blood Orange cake was our favorite dessert. If you want a fun, high energy atmosphere, request the main floor. The basement level was pretty but felt isolated, although good for quiet conversation. The valet parking was a nice perk and coat check was appreciated.

We all had the arugula salads which were very good. Then two of us had the salmon and one had the pork chop. Everything was delicious and we were all so stuffed that we did not order dessert. Love this restaurant!

Our server was excellent, friendly and professional. The food was very delicious and a nice portion without being too much pasta. Love that the pasta is mostly all house made! It’s a title expensive but we were on our expense account :) So all good!

This was my birthday party. We had 8 family members and friends for the meal. Every one of us very much enjoyed the meal we ordered (and much sharing). And the wait staff was perfect. Just enough. Not too much attention.
Would recommend to any one.

We have not been to the Casbah in a very long time purely because we don't live nearby. It was a wonderful experience, the food was great, our server was great, I would highly recommend it.

First visit, deciding to attend the annual pasta festival week. Very pleased with the selections we chose. Mixed italian olives were our appetizer, and it was a delicious selection to savor. 3 small plates of pasta {Ricotta Cavatelli, Strozzapreti, and chestnut mushroom agnolotti ) were enjoyed by my wife and I. These small portions were quite flavorful and just enough to satisfy us.
Greeting and service were excellent, and the food was wonderful. Keep up the good work!

This was the first day of Pasta week. There were many to choose from. Over a dozen. I chose the ravioli stuffed with fois gras and cranberry juice served with an apple salad.You could have it as a first course or a double order as an entree. It was fabulous. I never tasted anything like it.
For my main course i had a pork chop with rissoto and braised kale. I thoroughly enjoyed it as always. It was so dark at 5:30 at night. You could not see your food. I like more light. But we are very lucky to have a restaurant that is always good.

Had a great time going back here! The waitress was very professional and took care of us well. Loved the calamari and rock shrimp appetizer on the brunch menu! Also could not stop eating the complimentary breads with dolce de leche butter. Who knew that was even a thing!? Would have liked to see more than one sweet item for brunch entrees but overall was very pleased with this experience.

They were terribly late at seating us - we weren't seated until nearly 30 minutes after our reservation. The wait and the experience of being crammed into the bar were disappointing. The bar tab for two people while we waited was still north of $50 alone. The food was good, and the person who served our table was fantastic. I will say our experience wasn't the norm for Casbah - all other visits were phenomenal - perhaps that's why we feel so let down by this one.
