Clearly the best restaurant in a city of great restaurants. Hats off to Morcilla and the other delicious restaurants in Pittsburgh for raising the bar! Morcilla has flavor profiles that excite the palette! Charcuterie selection is divine. Jamon Iberico has the right amount of sweet...More

A friend and I went here for an early dinner on New Year's Eve. Our waitress was fantastic and helped us navigate through the menu. We started our dinner with a beef tartar. It was very good. We then moved to the Sobrasada.... it was...More

I wanted to love the menu at Morcilla, but I struggled a bit. Most items were good, but a few were just ok or just plain weird. I'm a very adventurous eater and willing to try anything, but some of their flavor combinations fell flat....More

Located in Lawrenceville just outside the Strip district in a great new spot that features Northern Spanish (Basque) cuisine. We started at Cure, but were turned away as they had no spot for two. They called Morcilla for us (must be a Sister Restaurant) and...More

We had a lovely dinner on October 16th. Ordered fish, wings, ribs, potatoes and a mushroom dish. Didn't see a piece of leafy lettuce in the whole place. This joint is about meat. We came before 6:00pm and it was quiet, but the place filled...More
