we'd love to hear from you
"Our family loves this place. The food is delicious! The ambience is superb and not overly pretentious. It feels like you are part of a pub family--like Cheers, lol--and the staff are very attentive. And on some visits, we even get a check-in from the owner, just making sure all is to our liking. It's definitely our new go-to for dining away from home--and highly recommended!" - Ragin S.
"Our first visit, definitely won’t be our last. Friendly atmosphere, great duo playing, and most of all, the food was delicious. Shrimp Primavera tops any I’ve had before. Really should give this place a try!" - Mike D.
"We visited this hidden gem for the first time today for brunch and our experience was nothing short of amazing. The service was great, the fried green tomatoes, Mediterranean omelette and special steak omelette were all some of the best we’ve had. We will definitely be returning soon." - Kendall W.
"Pittsburgh Italian heritage -- need I say more? And yes, they do southern traditional foods proper as well!!! Awesome food/drink menu and great service! If you haven't been here, you're missing out!" - David B.
"American hospitality at its best - how's that? Super friendly clientele and attentive staff, good food (not just ok, GOOD), reasonable pricing, hard to ask for more. Had great burger drinks and conversation, they insisted I try the Payday cocktail. Loved the home made coleslaw." - Handy A.
