A fun pub with a literal thick bible of beer selection. Fun patio in the summer and a lot of pub decorations on the inside for ambiance. Found in the heart of Little Italy, where else would you find an Italian pub.

I would give the atmosphere a 4 star rating and the food a 3 star rating. I ordered the pizza which you can find a much higher quality of pizza in Little Italy but the inside and patio to me is a very unique spot.

This restaurant has the most unique and interesting décor that I have ever seen. It must be seen to be believed! The beer list was extensive - there is definitely something for everyone. The food was good; the service was good.
