Love this place - it's our neighborhood bar/restaurant.
First off, the food is amazing. The portions are huge and you're guaranteed to either leave full or have some leftovers for the next day. Hint - try the "Italian breadsticks"; they're inexpensive and amazing!
We usually sit at the bar, and the bartenders are super friendly. It's fun to watch them chat with some of the regulars that come in, and the game's always on.
This place doesn't take reservations in advance so be warned if you go on a Friday or Saturday night for dinner... you may wait a while! We have luck around 7:30 or 8pm at the bar usually.
