I've lived in Pittsburgh for 33 years, and the Pleasure Bar is a go-to place for dependably good food. I've been a loyal customer through many owners and renovations, and it's as good now as it has ever been. I usually go for lunch; favorites include the portobello sandwich and the fish sandwich. I always get the potato balls, which... More

I really don't have anything BAD to say about the Pleasure Bar. It's just that nothing really WOWS me. I've been here a few times over the years and, again, nothing memorable. The food? Decent? The service? Decent. The ambiance? Acceptable. Went here on Labor Day with my boyfriend and a group of friends (he & I were visiting from... More

We loved the dinner we had at the Pleasure Bar and returned twice during our short visit to Pittsburgh. They were able to accommodate my husband's low salt diet needs with a delicious chicken marsala. The salad is fresh and filled with greens and olives and cheese. Portions are substantial. Even the house wine was good. We returned for lunch... More

I've been to the Pleasure Bar many, many times. I find the portion sizes large and the quality of food delicious. Their Italian egg rolls are the bomb! Love their spaghetti sauce and dishes and enjoy their crab cakes. Respectable place to dine...

We have been coming here for the past 10 years, but after this disappointing experience we will not be back. Our waitress was terrible, the food was so-so at best, and the salads were terrible! The service was the worse part of the experience. We had a small table of five people and it was a Tuesday evening so they... More

We went to the Pleasure Bar with my parents to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday - what a terrible mistake. We were there at 5:00 on a Sunday and ushered past 2 charming rooms filled with empty tables (they said they were waiting for reservations) and seated in what can best be described as a closet. They put 5 of... More

There's nothing I love more than a Pittsburgh steak salad, but the ones we ordered at Pleasure Bar simply did not make the cut. Over -cooked, cold, tough steak was tossed on a bed of iceberg. It was lame and disappointing. And my hopes were so high!

I haven't been here for a while. It still has the neighborhood feel and great food. Got the #2 sampler and everything was good. It is not fancy but that is it's charm.

The Pleasure Bar is my favorite Italian restaurant in Pittsburgh! I’ve been going this place for years. The food is consistently excellent and the portions are very large. The service is always friendly. Don’t expect anything fancy, just a great Italian meal!

When you enter the Pleasure bar, it is a nice bar but keep going to the back and behind glass doors is a wonderful Italian dining experience. Food is excellent and the portions give you food to take home. Service was good and staff very pleasant. Get anything, especially if it has the pomadoro sauce on it. Good for anyone... More
