They have a part time valet parking. Other than the parking issue, the food and the staff were nice. The portions are family style and $$$. I recommend the margarita pizza or macaroni and cheese with meat suce.

Fun! Purposefully tacky - which can be great. The chicken parm was good - meatballs the size of softballs. You could spend half your time looking at the 3,000 photos/paintings on the walls.
