Little Italy

Huge beer menu!! Looks like a bible. We wanted to experience Little Italy and this pub looked busy. It is kind of a cross between Irish and Italian but it works.

Amazing beer selection, delicious food and excellent service. We sat outside and enjoyed beer and an early dinner. The prices were very reasonable and the atmosphere was great. The building has all these hidden pieces of art that meld religion, folklore and alcohol for an interesting visual experience. The pub is located in Little Italy, which is a wonderful part... More

Located in Little Italy, which is an interesting place to visit on its own. Great patio area for summer dinning. Indoors has booths. The pub décor is characterized in the style of the old Benedictine Monasteries. If you dine on the patio be sure to go on a tour of the pub. There are many, many different beers to choose... More

The place is amazing! Beer bible is so creative and the staff are super friendly. Having tried most of the places on Preston, I'd say this is one of the best.

By far my favourite pub, wide selection of beer and the pub has a great buzz/feel to it. The food is mouth watering although a bit pricy. I bring all my guests from out of town to this pub!

Went here off a recommendation of a friend that though the prices will be expensive, they have a wide selection of beer. That actually what this place was. The decor is very religious, with the drink menu called the 'Beer bible.' I'd recommend a visit just for the decor alone.

This place is generally really busy and the food is OK. They have a great selection of beer and other spirits. I have visited this place about half a dozen times but I keep getting the hit and miss with food. The service is great and the atmosphere is pretty nice. Good place for a large group!

Great choice of beer, but food was so-so. Appetizers were eatable (Irish nachos, calamari), but pizzas - not. Actually we noticed one waitress with the skirt too short. Not everybody accept skirt above a table.

Good place to have some drinks but the food is substandard and the pizza is bad. Taste like a thin under cooked frozen pizza.

This is a very "picturesque" place in Little Italy. The service is so-so but the food is poor at best. Reasonable pasta (yet not special) and poor pizza with unrecognizable crust (not resembling any pizza). The beer "bible" is extensive and if you go there to drink you will have great options. However, if you want to eat, choose another... More
