Pastitsio - Greek Deli in Pittsburgh

A new Greek deli has just recently opened down the street from me and it is incredibly good. At the moment they're serving sandwiches, salads, sides, entrees and desserts. I've had the moussaka and the baklava so far and they were delicious. The guy who owns the place is originally from Meadville, PA and is 100% Greek. The food all seems to be authentic even though I have to admit I'm not incredibly familiar with Greek cuisine. I put a more in-depth review on my blog. http://wp.me/pVPwQ-2M
I probably should've mentioned this place in my response to an earlier thread that queried Greek options in Pittsburgh.
My wife and I grabbed lunch at Pastitsio on Saturday. It's in a pleasant little spot adjacent to the Round Corner Cantina in Lawrenceville, offering a textbook spread of Greek specialties (its namesake pastitsio, moussaka, souvlaki, salads, desserts. etc.) generally well-done. The dolmades we took home had a great, toothsome bite, though were a little heavier on the dill than I would've liked.
The guys running the place were incredibly friendly and I hope they succeed. But I must say this, as someone decidedly *not* prone to sticker-shock at restaurant bills: $22+ for 2 souvakli specials + lemonades struck me as remarkably steep.
