The air inside is musty, but then I saw the sign offering a grapefruit Marguerita, It listed "Ruby red grapefruit, Triple Sec, tequila and lime juice". I thought this idea had legs, so I ordered one without tequila. What came was too sweet, tasted like a solvent, and had no hint of lime juice or any tang you might expect from grapefruit or lime juice. I sent it back and stuck with water.
We hope this place does not give up on the grapefruit marguerita idea. Maybe try grapefruit JUICE, Triple Sec, tequila, and actual lime juice (Not marguerita mix). Margs are supposed to be sour, but if it really is too sour, an unflavored sweetener would allow the other citrus flavors to shine.
The menu is old school, with items like manicotti and pasta fagioli soup. After the grapefruit drink, we opted to NOT order entrees or pasta and to stick with appetizers. The bread (in the form of garlic bread and the toast of the bruschetta) was the soft stuff from the 1960's. We ordered the pasta fagioli; it was OK. The panko-coated calimari was leathery and not very panko-like. From frozen or left in the fryolator too long? The bruschetta was sweet, maybe because they put balsamic vinegar on it, but this could have been OK if the bread it was mounded on was not the soft stuff described above. We did not complain or send back the food, just the drink.
On the plus side, the wait staff was friendly and warm and did not charge us for the soup or the grapefruit drink.
Except for the serving ware, all surfaces observed needed cleaning.
