Great atmosphere. Enjoyed the Godfather movie pics on the wall. Had the spaghetti and meatballs with a little Chianti. It was excellent. Service was a little off but not bad. Otherwise I'd have given 5 stars. Would definitely do it again.

Good food in a kind of sports bar environment. Reasonable prices and large servings. It was a busy Friday night and yet the service was good.

If you want low-key, basic food prepared pretty well, you would like this place. Service is pretty good, not great.

I have enjoyed the chicken masala with steam veggies and pasta various times. The bar is really cool with a color changing ice-luge to keep your beer chilled. Friendly staff and the owner Pete are very welcoming.

food and service are so-so, but the bar is fun. They have an icy topped bar to keep your drinks cold. I like the sliders okay. Friend and I went for lunch once and waited 40 minutes for food as the cook had just wandered...More
