Located right in the center of Pegulaville overlooking Canalside you can't get more convenient if you're catching the Sabres or anything else at KeyBank Center and the Harbor Center. This is a cozy spot with a nice bar and outstanding views. The menu isn't long, but the options are well thought out.

San Marco is a no-brainer to the legions of fans they have built up over the past 30 some years, but to many they may remain a mystery. We are pretty sure the regulars have agreed not to let anyone in on their secret. This is some of the finest northern Italian food you will find this side of the Veneto. They offer a great wine list and cuisine fit for the most special occasions.

Since 1967, Salvatore’s Italian Gardens has been the most spectacular restaurant in WNY. They have done plenty of remodeling over the years and recently added a hotel. The bar is beautiful, the service on target, the food excellent and the prices unabashed.

One of the finest restaurants in Buffalo, Oliver's Restaurant is fine dining in the "Old School" tradition. This gem has been turning out great food and great chefs for decades- thankfully there is no end in site. Chef Ross Warhol continues the tradition with stunning displays of culinary magnificence. Oliver's is elegant enough for the most special occasion, inviting enough for an early weekday dinner, and offers one of the nicest bars in town.

Not only does Lombardo's Ristorante offer up some of the finest Italian food and brick oven pizza in town, they offer up some of the best service as well. They've been serving North Buffalo for over 40 years. The staff is so friendly you're liable to walk out thinking they mistook you for uncle Joey. They do pretty much everything right - salads, house made pasta, chops, scaloppini... they even appreciate your business.

Buffalo Chophouse may not have been Buffalo's first steakhouse, but there are few oldies left that compare. Reports of long waits at the bar before dinner (with a res) are probably exaggerated but give yourself some room. The decor and food scream "bring the beef".
