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...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...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...

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...More
