    The short rib ravioli is pretty good. Not amazing but still pretty good. Try other things if they catch your eye.

    The cheese platters and octopus apps at the bar are the way to go. Also the lamb is spectacular.

    The short rib ravioli here is decadent and to die for. Follow it up with grilled corn ice cream. For more local tips, follow us on 4sq or check out www.renhotels.com.

    One of the Big Burrito family, Casbah is consistently above average. Recommend the Crispy Arsenal Cheese Curds (when available) and Cioppino. Excellent wine list too. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Most overpriced brunch/breakfast ever. 24$ for what? A waffle and eggs? You've got to be kidding me.

    Outstanding food in Pittsburgh, but stick to the Middle Eastern dishes as they are the best. Definitely try the lamb. (All of the Big Burrito restaurants are excellent).
