Very neighborhood family oriented Italian restaurant. Friendly waitstaff and patrons. If you are in Amsterdam NY, pop in for a meal. One of our party is on a gluten free diet. The restaurant serves gluten free spaghetti and pizza upon request

It's true, this is a bar first and a restaurant second....with several dining rooms in back of the bar area. It's no frills. It's also very good. Good food, overly-generous portions, good service, low prices. Ten of us had dinner there the other night and...More
