    By far my favorite restaurant in Pittsburgh. The food was absolutely amazing, ricotta cavatelli was delicious and the halibut and risotto was amazing. Bourbon brûlée was also really good. The wait staff is also great and knowledgeable. Never disappointed when we dine here. Can’t wait to go back!!

    Choice was good, presentation was good, service was very good, but my scallop appetizer was far too peppery - it drowned out the delicate scallop flavor. Also, the lobster pasta dish was too peppery and that marred the flavor of the lobster! Someone in the kitchen was going much too heavy with the pepper! The chocolate raspberry bread pudding was great, however, and up to the Casbah standard of old!

    Only downside was the valet parking attendant.....very rude - mocked patrons and swore at one all in the matter of a few minutes even though there was nothing that actually happened. One person joked about the car being parked far away and he just lost it.

    Wonderful birthday dinner with my husband! Great place for a special occasion, but a little pricey otherwise. $20 for 1 glass of wine was a little high for me, but it was an excellent cab from France. Lamb app was great and something new to try! Loved the bread pudding, and house made caramel at the end was a nice touch.
