A cross between a traditional Italian restaurant and something of a sports bar. The food is very good, the service staff is excellent. Prices are most reasonable given the quality of the food and the location of the restaurant.

Craving pasta and this place hit the spot. Gnocchi in alfredo sauce (an accommodation from the marinara on the menu) was amazing as was the bread and the server. Would definitely go again.
