This all-day Italian bar and diner has a classic 1950s New York bistro feel with some bonus ‘80s flair. There’s old-school booth seating, glossy leather bar stools and neon lights throughout cast the room in a warm glow.

The menu features Italian and American-Italian classics, including pastas, salads and sandwiches, with a few curveballs thrown in. The 10-inch pizzas are divided into two categories: Old School (including a marinara dubbed Legalize Marinara) and New School (including the spicy Napoli Dynamite). The pasta menu includes cavatelli ragu bolognaise and capellini “Golden Century” with prawns in garlic butter.

Food can be paired with wine from the in-house bottle shop, which stocks Koerner, Yetti and the Kokonut, Delinquente, Hither & Yon, and – naturally – Hustle & Vine.

In early 2020, Aces launched their breakfast menu, which includes sweet and savoury options such as a breakfast pizza topped with bacon, sausage, potato and mushroom; a spin on the McMuffin; and toasted waffles with salted ricotta, berries and raspberry sauce. Coffee by Lavazza and breakfast cocktails are also available.
