We fondly call this restaurant "the Beanery" because of their delicious bean soup! We've been going to this traditional west side Italian restaurant for years! A "go to" place for a quick bite before a BPO concert or other downtown festivities. We always leave with leftovers because the portions are huge. FYI: There is no coffee or tea served, only water, wine, or beer!!! 1950s style tables are covered with maroon vinyl tablecloths...no cloth here!!! An authentic mix of locals and those "in the know"! It's fun to sit in the front room and watch the chefs cook spaghetti, sauce and soups in giant steaming pots. Very reasonable prices, great service, and lots of food (bread included too last time we went). Parking: A dirt/partially paved lot is next to the bldg, but you might find spaces across the street after their business hours. This restaurant gets the job done...no frills here! Enjoy the experience!!!

I have eaten here for many years. Very good italian food and the price can't be beat. I have brought many family and friends here and everyone of them liked the food.

Even though it was very busy and short staffed, there is no reason for a server to be rude and unprofessional. 3 tables that came in after us were taken care of before us and when we questioned that, her response was rude. Then, after waiting over an hour, the sauce was burnt. We were embarrassed because we took out of town friends. Will never go back!

So, we were driving down Niagara St. and decided to stop in. Hadn’t been here in a while. We placed our order over an hour ago. People next to us ordered at same time. They have already eaten and left. Waiter says he has no control over what the kitchen does and that they have not started our order!!!!! WHAT!? Not a difficult order - spaghetti!!!!! Still waiting, but about to leave. NEVER AGAIN...

This restaurant brings you back to a slower, gentler time. Best sauce in Buffalo (and there are a lot of good ones). You think that you're in a scene from the Godfather or Goodfellas. It's that authentic an Italian restaurant. Nothing fancy...everything good. I'm always in a quandary about what to order, spaghetti and meatballs or Past Fazoola (not fagioli). My wife always gets the spaghetti parm and I invariably order the pasta fazoola. We always take a doggie bag home. The portions are more than generous. Then, I order a quart of sauce to go. We boil up some pasta heat the sauce (gravy to you down staters) a day or two later. These are just our favorites. The menu is full of items that we occasionally order. None of which I have ever heard a complaint about.
