Profile Last Updated: March 19, 2008
The Nicastro family started business as an Italian grocery, selling foodstuffs from the old country. Over time, a cafe was added to the grocery store, and patrons could dine on traditional Italian fare as well as buy Italian staples. Next came a liquor store in an annex attached to the grocery and café. The latest iteration of the business has found the grocery store and café converted to a neighbourhood pub on the location, and it has become wildly popular, with a large and loyal following.
Everything The Pub-Goer Desires
Nicastro’s has all the accoutrements that pub-goers want to see. When you walk into the premises you are met by a large, well-lit semi-circular bar, behind which is a glass-fronted beer cooler that contains what appears to be a huge quantity of suds. Seating is at lounge style tables with comfortable high-backed chairs, or in plush booths. For patrons’ entertainment there is pool, video games, foosball, lots of big-screen televisions, karaoke and a patio available if the weather permits. Live music and entertainment are scheduled regularly. Check with the pub to find out what is on tap, so to speak.
Good Pub Food and More
Nacastro’s serves lots of pub-style appetizers including stuffed potato skins, spring rolls, chips and salsa, sausages, bruchetta, onion rings and garlic toast. Chicken wings are particular favourites, prepared hot, teriyaki, salt and pepper, barbeque, or “all dressed” – said to be a combination of all of the above seasonings. If you want more than appetizers, there is pizza, pastas, spaghetti and meat balls, hamburgers, fish and chips, Italian subs, steaks, wraps, and lots more. There is a food special each night of the week.
Parking: On the street and in the lot behind the pub.
