I loved the atmosphere. The pictures on the walls with signatures were fun. There were four of us. They serve a delicous basket of bread that they refill. Very yummy. They have a bottomless bowl of soup for 8.00 dollars. We had spicy lentil soup....More

Ate supper here and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a bit of a wait to get seated but it was so worth it. The Minnesota Fats Balls(risotto balls) were truly to die for!! I had the Shell Game Pasta and my husband had the Dempsey's...More

Staff were friendly and decor is fun. Food was solid. Enjoyable spot to have lunch with the family. We all tried out the different pastas which were great.

They seem to have changed the menu and the Hemmigway Short story. It was very disappointing. Have been going there since the 80s Bread was still excellent.More

Hi, We updated the look of the menu, the vast majority of the contents is the same. Was there something missing from the menu? Chances are we can still make it for you. We have not changed the Hemingway Short Story. I am very sorry...More

Had a good lunch here while touring around Victoria. Very interesting place, murals of New York City on the wall and feel of an old time dining establishment. We shared a Prince of Tides salad with scallops, portobello mushrooms, pine nuts and sun dried tomatoes....More

Italian. Wonderful food. Right downtown. Often see a line up during peak periods. Not a very big place. Tables close together which is not my favorite thing but the regulars will tell you that the food is worth it.

This is the sort of place I love, where you can almost feel the history of the place. Surrounded by photos of film stars,and jazz musicians, new and mainly old, (one of whom I saw in Paris in 1957!), mobsters who may or may not...More

Such a disappointment. The hotel recommendation was glowing. The food was not bad, it was ok, but the service sucked. I guess because we chose to drink water we are cheap customers. Like my son always says "do grown ups just think kids have no...More

Hi Alanna, I suggest a Pagliacci's salad without cheese and maple balsamic vinaigrette and some extra chick peas. Or a pasta with just tomato sauce and vegetables (not on the menu but were happy to make it). Our bread in... More
