This is one of the best restaurants in Pittsburgh. The food is creative, excellently prepared and presented. The small plates of octopus and shrimp are especially outstanding. The service is attentive without being overbearing. This is a great place to share dishes and a great place to go with another couple or a group. I highly recommend it!

About the restaurant



Umi offers an evening of unparalleled dining, featuring New York style sushi and Japanese cuisine and meticulous preparation. At center stage is our awe-inspiring omakase: a multi-course adventurous meal prepared by Mr. Shu, winner of Pittsburgh Magazine’s Chef of the Year.

House cocktails, as well as a variety of sakes and wines are available to complement your experience.

Umi's dining room transforms the top floor of a Shadyside Victorian row house into a delightful Japanese garden. Authentic tatami seating, a large sushi bar, and a delicate waterfall create a transcendentally peaceful dining experience.

We struggled to decide on dining family style vs 7-course omakase vs 11-course omakase. Ultimately, we decided on the 11-course omakase and don't regret our choice. It was delicious and well paced. A great way to spend an evening.

About the restaurant
It takes more than exquisite cooking to make a memorable meal. We at Cucina Vitale believe an intimate atmosphere in the right location, personal and attentive service, and great company is what separates a delicious meal from an unforgettable experience.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE A BYOB and CASH ONLY ESTABLISHMENT.

Delicious stuffed banana pepper appetizer followed by a perfectly prepared seared tuna with a mild stone-ground mustard sauce. My wife enjoyed her linguine with white clam sauce and shrimp. We went early when it was not yet crowded. A delightful dining experience.

We visited for $15 burger night. Have to say we all agreed it was the best burger we have ever eaten. Great cocktails as well! We will be returning.

The server was bubbly and fantastic. They walked us through the idea of the menu, made some recommendations. The food was fresh, vibrant and delicious. The Beef Tataki is a highlight as are the hand rolls. If nigiri is more your thing the Madai is not to be missed!
