This place is STILL here???
Wow, I remember back in 96 when I was in 8th grade when my classmate's family opened this restaurant (at least I THINK it was 96 when they opened it). We used to go here after all of our mandatory 8th grade dances and just hang out eating calamari and pizza (ok, I remember the calamari was true, but not sure about the pizza part). Flash forward to present day and i'm driving down Irving Park Rd and low and behold it's still standing. Although it's strange, not only have I yet to actually set foot into the restaurant, I always pass it by and find the exterior to look like a ghost town. I mean, are they STILL in business or what because I can't tell front looking at the front side of the building. If they are, they need like a fresh coat of paint, some new windows or something to cry out, ""Hey, we're still here, come on in!!!"" One of these days I'll actually take the time to walk in and have myself a big plate of fried calamari like the old days. Who knows, maybe my old classmate Gaetano's now running the place (good for him if he is too =) ).
