I second the Willow recommendation. The food is quite good.

Gali in Pleasant Hills is a great little mom-and-pop-shop for authentic Greek food. Their gyros are the best I've had.

i'd also like to add my recommendation for Buffalo Bills in New Kensington. I'll drive up from the city sometimes and get a bucket of those for hockey games. They aren't fried, they're broiled and i think the taste is infintely better than anyone else's.

Thats a 49cc scooter, which you don't need a motorcycle license to drive. I'm not sure if thats somethine she wants to go through or not.

And yeah...i live in shady side, and my friend that also has a ruckus lives near south side works, and we go back and forth pretty freely....although going up bates i need to stay to the right so people can pass going up the hill...but it holds about 25 mph up the entire hill.

Another place that I really like is Mad Mex.

Good beer selection (especially at the Robinson location...though the others are certainly nothing to scoff at) and solid Mexican food along with some very interesting faux-Mex selections (Wing-O-Rito is my favorite...rice, black beans, chicken and chicken wing sauce inside, and salsa and blue cheese on the outside).

Rock Bottom on the Waterfront has seemed to have pretty good dishes (you'd have to in order to keep up there), and beer that competes with anything else in the city; I mostly brought them up to urge beer lovers to go there, as it always seems to be a missed place in the Pittsburgh beer scene.

Mad Mex is awesome. I recommend avoiding the Oakland location though. Too small.

my g/f took me to "green forest cafe" for my birthday. that place was freakin awesome. i love meat. and getting it cut off onto my plate was awsome. expensive but worth it. maybe 25 bucks? 28?


Did you go to La Casa? But if you like tapas i wouldtotally recommend Tusca. Their pizzas are terrific too as is the sangria


ya i went to La Casa. it was on the horrible side of rankings. sangria was not good, to sour/sweet, over priced and all of their dishes (we all got like 12 different ones) none of them were good at all, tiny portions, and over priced. some of those same people went to the place in Southside works and said it was 10x better. mentioned the pizza as well.

$2500 new....i spent $1400 for used 2006 w/300 miles.

It's like the civic for scooters....reliable, practical, and reasonably priced....i'd never spend like $4K for a scooter

Shadyside and sq hill are pretty stocked with cool places to eat....the area is just kind of filled with different ethnic varieities...i'd include like oakland and bloomfield with them too.
