Where the Emerald Isle meets the Boot

What do Italian trattorias, Irish pubs, and medieval monasteries have in common?

All represent meeting and gathering places for both celebration and respite.  While monasteries fostererd the art of beer and wine making, trattorias and pubs became the places of choice in which to comsume them.  All these come together in the Pub Italia experience.  This restaurant and bar is the product, culturally speaking of an Irish and Italian marriage.  At Pub Italia, you can wash down a garlicky Caesar salad with a Guiness or toast the broadcast of an Italian soccer game with an imported pilsner.  Fine Italian food doubles as pub fare, and Thursdays to Saturdays you can order dishes after midnight.  Visit our web site for complete details.
