This restaurant is great but can get noisy on busy nights. And a plus is that they are open on Monday nights. Main courses are large but there is a great choice of entrees.

We have ordered a couple of times from here and the pizza has always been excellent. The pizzas are more of the authentic 'Italian' style, so they are not overloaded with toppings. The base is nice and crisp, making it enjoyable to eat. All of...More

We had a family function in this restaurant. It was very noisy and difficult to have any conversation, but worse, the food was not great. The most underwhelming were the pizzas; very thin, chewy crusts with very frugal spreads. For half the price (and twice...More

Reminded me of a "Mama's House" restaurant in Umbria; you ate what Mama was making and a couple of standard pastas, or a pizza. Good, wholesome, not too fancy. TIJ is better and more varied, well known locally for its full range of pizzas (we...More

The name was inspired by the movies (1969 & 2003) of the same name. The friends in the movie have a strong bond of loyalty. Food has always been central to developing this bond for Italians. It is called a cafe rather than a restaurant to preserve the charm of the more intimate, informal family owned trattoria or eatery. It has the feel of a cosy and warm dining room of an Italian family. We serve traditional cuisine and pizza with Italian simplicity and the freshest ingredients bought daily and cooked to perfection to give that delicious authentic taste reminiscent of Nonna's (Grandma's) cooking. Our pastas are al dente with delicious sauces and our risottos creamy.
