Food and drinks were delicious as always. We dine here pretty often, last time we were here we were disappointed with flow of service but this recent time was fantastic. Took their time between courses and our drinks came out quickly so we had our drink of choice for each course.

Very nice evening out. We ate in the the space right inside the door. It was very warm and comfortable.
Service was great and food was delicious. My wife is a Vegan and Casbah was able to prepare a Vegan pasta dish for her.
Casbah was very COVID compliant which made things comfortable. Free valet parking was very nice.

Visit was during COVID and a weeknight. Tables were spread out and we felt comfortable from a safety standpoint. Service was outstanding. Was extremely impressed with the knowledge of our server, he knew the ins/outs of every dish and the ingredients and how they were prepared. Was a very enjoyable evening.

Despite COVID, it was a really nice experience. Uncharacteristically, there was no vegetarian entree on the menu. As usual, a nice job by Big Burrito.

This has always been a favorite but haven't been there since the pandemic began. The atmosphere is very pleasant and casual. Tables are well spaced and the menu, though a bit smaller, has ample variety to meet all tastes.
I had a delicious freshly made arugula salad followed by short rib ravioli----though I found them a bit salty, they were well filled and tasty. Mark was a thoughtful and helpful waiter.
Not usually a bread eater, I found the bread unusually good and learned that they get it from Eleven(part of this restaurant group).
I'll be back!

Server was kind, but was not very attentive. He forgot our wine chiller and water refill, and took quite a while to get our initial order. That being said, it was a wonderful experience for an anniversary dinner! The duck was delicious!

We made the reservation for a friends 30th birthday. I ordered a bottle of wine ahead of time to be delivered to the table. Amanda, the wine director was absolutely fabulous and the Malbec she chose for us was fabulous. Our server granted our every need and all of our courses were delicious. For appetizers we had the octopus, tuna tartare, and butternut squash ravioli. Entrees included the duck, short rib ravioli, and the orecchiette. The duck was among the best I’ve had in Pittsburgh; perfectly cooked without losing the beautiful crust. For dessert we had the vanilla creme brûlée, flourless chocolate cake and the bread pudding. The bread pudding had crisp bottoms and light tops, this was the best one. We then finished with a night cap of limoncello shots. Altogether it was a great experience. If I had to choose anything to comment negatively about it would be the mis-representation of Mediterranean cuisine. From the menu and overall experience it pushed as more of an Italian restaurant. Can’t wait to return!
