Extremely good prices. Spaghetti sauce is homemade and you can definitely taste it. Good range of meals. Mussels or white clams with pasta is great. Service is friendly. Favorite restaurant in Bristol.

This is not a tourist restaurant. This is a local bar that serves unique, tasty, freshly prepared food. Do not expect 'typical' flavors or preparations here - not the standard TGIFridays or chain restaurant fare. The cook has her own unique spin on dishes. Prices...More
