We went with a group from the office to celebrate a retirement. Great appetizer and drink specials for happy hour and the entrees are tasty. Try the pasta specials. They are always delish.

Great question...there are no real lots close by, but if you go one block behind the restaurant, there are meters and some open spaces by the apartments.
