    A great experience. Favorite thing for me was the Oxtail but it was all fantastic. Serrano Ham and “Crab Cakes” were also top tier. Although I wish the crab cake was setup in smaller bites because it fell apart easily but wasn’t easy to bite from because of the delicious bread it was rested on. But honestly the presentation of the crab was gorgeous so it might be worth the extra mess/hassle. Wine and cocktail suggestions were perfect. Honestly looking to go back really soon for even just a casual dinner. Absolutely worth the money. Staff is very dedicated and I want to befriend them all.

    First time here for date night and it was great! Felt like we were somewhere other than Pittsburgh when we got inside. Service was attentive, friendly & knowledgable. Food was so good. Would highly recommend the octopus small plate! Fantastic. Will surely return. Seating is limited so reservations are a good move.

    The atmosphere was so quaint. It is a smaller restaurant but we didn’t feel like we were on top of other people and the noise was not too bad. The food was wonderful! The oxtail was something so different than anything we have ever tried before and we highly recommend it!

    It's always the dishes you don't expect that knock your socks off. Last time it was the skate wing a la plancha and tuna crudo, this time it was the roasted sweet potatoes and oxtail. I can't decide which time was better but I know both were among my favorite dining experiences ever!

    Awesome restaurant. Food is excellent, great for sharing and trying everything. Prices are somewhat reasonable for this type of restaurant when compared to other similar restaurants in Pittsburgh. More casual than the 'fancier' places, so that plus the prices plus a more tapas oriented menu make this an accessible restaurant for a varied audience. Highly recommend for any occasion or just Happy Hour.

All the food looked and tasted great. Really happy we chose here for a date night at a new place. Will return for sure.

    A wonderful dining experience. I never felt rushed or cramped, a rare experience these days at trendy fine dining restaurants. The food was excellent. The oxtail and steak an la plancha were incredible - with only one dish failing to impress - the scallop crudo was just okay. Otherwise a perfect dining experience that I feel like ruined me for many other restaurants. I can’t wait to go back and try more things. Our server was wonderful.

    We’ve been longtime fans of Morcilla and this was the best meal we’ve had. The food is outstanding. The smaller space makes it too noisy but it’s worth the sacrifice for the very unique food.

    Quite possibly the best meal I've had in Pittsburgh. Some particular standout flavor combinations were pairing chorizo with vanilla oil, the labneh and honey harissa with ribs, and maple syrup with goat cheese flan. The scallops and octopus dishes were the best cooked versions of those seafood I can recall.

    We always have a delicious meal at Morcilla; the food is so unique and excellent and the ambiance is warm and inviting. I wish the servers were uniformly friendlier (but they’re not unfriendly or rude, just seem aloof). Still, we’d never miss an opportunity to eat there…

    Our first time there and we loved it! Loved the uniqueness of ingredients that were used, and we would not have changed a thing about any of it outside of maybe we would have ordered 2 of a few of the small plates they were that delicious and left us with wanting more!
