8 "Casual Weeknight Dinner" restaurants in Pittsburgh.
A good casual weeknight dinner spot is hard to find. It’s a step above a make-your-own bowl place, but not somewhere you’ll need a reservation. It shouldn’t be too expensive, you should be able to talk instead of shout, and your dinner shouldn’t take more than an hour. These spots do it all.
This two-story brewery/restaurant in the Strip District has games, a roof deck, amazing craft beer, and a long menu.
This small, busy restaurant in Squirrel Hill is where you should go to eat soup dumplings and buns.
You’ll find creative tacos at Baby Loves Tacos in Bloomfield, just make sure you get there early because they sell out.
Attached to the back of DiAnoia’s, Pizzeria Davide is a pizza window where you should share a pie at a table outside.
Pizza Taglio is our favorite BYO spot, but we’d come here for the wood-fired pizzas even if they had a full bar.
Apteka balances new and old Pittsburgh by serving classic, rich Polish dishes that are completely plant-based.
A Pittsburgh institution for over 25 years, Tessaro’s in Bloomfield is where you go to drink beer, watch the Steelers and Pens, and eat a cheeseburger
