I don't know why but I love this place. I'm sure it's the atmosphere. It's refreshing and uplifting to not have to look at men in sweatshirts and backwards baseball caps and women with too much much flesh exposed. This place exudes class. I haven't sampled enough of the food to give a complete review. And i have only been for lunch. I had a Caesar salad which was a little overdressed and lettuce not as crisp as should be. The fried calamari was very good. Not the best I've ever had but very good. Son had Manhattan clam chowder which was a real treat. Excellent. He also had a burger with blue cheese which he said was very good. But just to be there is a real old world treat.
