Mouth watering? Dish Osteria and Bar is now open. Shown is shad roe chickpea fritter dandelion lemon caper.

With little fanfare beyond a website announcement, Pittsburgh’s popular Dish Osteria and Bar is open once again, two years after its owners began what was referred to as a “sabbatical.”

The popular Italian and seafood eatery — at 128 17th St. on the South Side — announced a pending return in March, following a break after “17 wild and exhilarating years.”

“Our time away from Dish will allow us to catch our breath and dedicate ourselves further to our passion for food, which will lead to our next chapter,” the post adds.

On its website Friday, the restaurant greets visitors with an Italian “hello.”

“Ciao! We are glad to announce that we are now officially open. Please make reservations by phone only.“

Hours are listed as 5 p.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday, with the kitchen closing at 11 p.m.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
