Description: An Italian eatery and beloved neighborhood lounge on First Hill.

Decor: Barred windows, cavernous red booths, and a few very lovely paintings of Vito's nude wife.

Mafia-scented embellishments: In the back, a full-sized, windowless meeting room with carpeted walls (the better to buffer voices with) and a panic button that triggers an internal alarm; in the basement, a series of padlocked rooms.

Happy hour: Mon–Fri 4–9 pm.

Happy-hour specials: From 4–7 pm enjoy $2 well drinks, $2 draft beer (including Fat Tire, Mirror Pond), and $2 appetizers (such as buffalo wings and pepperoni pizza); the 7–9 pm happy-hour shift brings $3 wells, $5 martinis, and $5 appetizers (meatballs, chicken salad, and more).
