Drink list is extremely extensive so it's recommended for post-dinner drinks. The food was not very good though, would not recommend that. Nachos were small and the cheese was plopped on the top with bare chips underneath. Salad dressing was good but the small is essentially a cup of salad for $7.

My hubby and I went for supper last night and we loved everything about this place! The decor is so cool, it felt like we were on vacation! The food is absolutely amazing! We ordered Papa Joes Platter to start and WOW!!! Everything was cooked to perfection! I loved that there were so many drink options! Our server suggested a... More

We stopped in for a late dinner. The beer selection was fantastic. The food was tasty and the service was excellent. The decor was so interesting, I couldn't stop looking around. Very cool concept.

Can't beat a place that has a "Beer Bible" on every table! Awesome selection of local and international brews, and great overall atmosphere! :D

My wife and I shared a RB's pizza with chicken, pesto and sun dried tomatos with a Mista Salad. The salad was very good but the pizza crust was a bit hard and it looked like it had been reheated. It was still tasty though. My wife had the Pinot Noir red wine which she said was very good. Now... More

Came here for a quick lunch after meeting close by. Pleasantly surprised by the extensive church theme decor. As you sit there you keep finding new things to look at you haven't seen yet! It was also fun to walk around and visit the entire pub. Even the bathrooms are all dressed up in the theme! Love the various artifacts... More

This place has the potential to be an amazing and quirky spot. The reason I gave this 4 stars as opposed to 3 is because of the originality of the pub. It is a church themed bar with a beer bible for a menu. The beer selection is fantastic but the food is lacking in comparison to the beverages. When... More

My son Matt and I enjoyed the company of my oldest Brother John at Pub Italia, who lives within walking distance of Little Italy. The ambiance is an experience in itself, the pub beers are an expedition, the food is fantastic, and the service is "top drawer"...hint if you are able to leave any food on your plate, I promise...

This is the first time I have been here. It was for a birthday and there were about 25 of us so they put us in a back room called "The Abbey" I think. The servers were very friendly and helpful. The food seemed to be at a fair price and they had many dishes on the menu and vegetarian... More

The food was good as was the service. The tables are set up in such a way - alcoves - that many groups feel that they have a little bit of privacy. The decor is mostly religious icons that are interesting and stimulate conversation. The lunch special was an excellent choice. It was supposed to be a shrimp pasta dish... More
