We enjoyed a number of snacks and small plates. Wines suggested by our waiter were very good. Dessert was great.
While so many restaurants are too dark, lighting at our table at Mocilla was just right. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Food was so so sooooo good. I’m in love with the scallop. The only dish I would avoid is the $40 ham lol, not worth it.

Everything was excellent about this restaurant, except seating. A 5pm reservation with an almost empty dining room should not be placed in the corner by the kitchen where wait staff also congregate. Not quite the chef’s table . Ambiance 1.

It was alright. Food was not that exciting but I'm glad we tried the mushroom with egg yolk. Service was a little rushed. For the money, we had better food and experience elsewhere.

The service was exemplary. We had ribs, charcuterie, pate, tartar and lamb stew. Our party of four agreed that the pate was a bit flat but otherwise we were delighted with every bite. This is our new favorite eatery. Try a gin & tonic from their extensive selection. Acoustics are not great so be prepared.

Everything at Morcilla was amazing, from the drinks (Gin) to the snacks, small plates, large plates and dessert. The mussel was delicious and the trout with the fried artichoke hearts was awesome!! Our desserts, blood orange sorbet with olive oil sabayon and the creme brûlée type dessert were to die for!!

From the first plate that came out through all 3 desserts, I could not have been happier with my meal. My parents, who are foodies, were in from San Antonio. I decided Morcilla had a menu that was right up our alley-- we got the beet conserva, which was out of this world, the lamb tagine, and all three desserts. We also enjoyed a pitcher of sangria. I cannot wait to go back to try more items on their menu; but truly have not had such a satisfying, mouth-happy meal in Pittsburgh ever.

We celebrated my wife's birthday here this week and had a perfect evening. The crispy pig, the oxtail, the ribs and everything else we ordered was fantastic. The cockails were at the same excellent level of the food. Last but not least the service we exceptional. Our server Ryan was friendly, knowledgeable, and always at our table the second we needed anything. Even tough we were there on a Monday the restaurant was packed, but Ryan had a way to make up feel like we were his only table. If you have not been to Morcilla make a reservation soon. If you have, then you know why you need to go back!!!!

Service was pretty poor. Not very friendly and snobbish. My date was actually visiting from Galicia Spain and very much interested in the use of the Lauburu symbol throughout the restaurant. Not only did staff try to correct her on her Spanish and origins of the symbol lol, they were not knowledgeable enough to actually discuss the menu with someone from Galicia.

I went to Morcilla with some friends to celebrate a birthday! Our food was fabulous! We got several various dishes to try. Our favorite was the oxtail and fried artichoke. It’s not a super romantic setting, and a bit noisy but I will 100% be back

Second time visiting Morcilla. The service was great. The ambience was nice although it’s a very loud setting. The food was just so-so for us. Food could have been a bit better balanced to offset the heavy/fatty-ness of most dishes.

We have been to Morcilla and it never disappoints. The baccalo(sp) croquettes and the oxtail Montadito are perfect bites. It was my birthday and at the end we were given complimentary chilled vermouth. It was delicious.

We shared snacks and small plates, and on the advice of our waiter, ordered four of each. It turned out to be a perfect amount and allowed us to savor many different dishes: marcona almonds with lavender and sugar, olives, fried artichokes, bread with olive oil, Iberico ham, roasted cauliflower with chermoula, shrimp, and scallop crudo. These last two were the favorites at the table, although everything was excellent. In the end, we decided to split a dessert, the churros with chocolate-hazelnut sauce.

Can’t remember the last time we had a dinner that we could truly say was excellent from start to finish. Food was absolutely incredible and flavorful. The plates came to the table independently so we could experience the uniqueness of each dish. The scallop and the cauliflower small plates were outstanding! The charcuterie board was delicious! The atmosphere was very comfortable, good lighting and not too loud, just right. Excellent wait staff! Can’t wait to get back there again! For me, best restaurant that I’ve been in quite a long time!!!

This tapas restaurant is an indulgence, to be sure, and we were fortunate to receive a gift card that let us sample probably 1/3 of the starters/small plates menu. The staff are attentive and efficient, the bar and cold bar team are on point.
