Only bad thing is the family is from Pittsburgh so they brought all their Steeler pride with them...I know Cincy has its fair share of Steelers fans and that place is packed on game days. I just really like the place and found it very comfortable and different from a lot of places in Cincy. But try their pizza!

I also go to Martino's on a regular basis. Good food, and great service by the whole Angiulli family.

At the current time, their Tuesday night special is "Make Your Own Pizza". They give you a pre-made crust & they have a toppings bar, then give it to your server & they send it to the kitchen to bake - $4.99!

They have other specials, too. Wednesday is Burger Night. $4.99 {?} for a burger w/choice of cheese, fries & a draft beer or soda, with a toppings bar. And one night, they have all you can eat spaghetti.

This place is definitely worth checking out.

Martino's is rumored to be relocating to OTR soon.

I talked to the owners about this. They were surprised I had heard about it. They said they had only looked at a storefront in OTR, on Main St., but when checking out the liquor license and parking options, didn't think it was feasible. They were really surprised the "rumors" went so far, when they had only made an inquiry.

Speaking of OTR, does anybody know if Grammer's has actually reopened yet? I rolled past 1440 Walnut recently and it didn't exactly have that look.

A friend of mine went a couple of weeks ago and asked me to meet up with him, but I had previous plans ... so as far as I know, yes.

Grammer's was reopened by Martin Wade {a partner in the Jean Robert DeCavel Group}, and it caught on fire!!! Apparently, there were good intentions of opening Grammer's, but...it caught on fire!!

I hope all is well. They are trying to bring it back to it's original grandeur, but, since the fire, it's not been an easy venture.

It was "originallly" owned by Jim Tarbell. Jim Tarbell ran for city council on the platform of revitalizing OTR, because he owned most of it. It was in his best interests.

Revitalization of OTR did not happen during his tenure on city council, so he started selling off his OTR properties. Well, maybe before...

I digress.

Grammer's is reopened, as a bar, not a restaurant. The place caught on fire during "Hurricane Ike" {an ash was caught up in the wind, and landed on the roof.}. Before the fire, it was a bar, not a restaurant. After the fire... still a bar, not a restaurant.

The intention was to open a restaurant, but the fire put a damper on that idea.

He owned most of it? I can think of two buildings he owned.

Sorry, I took some "poetic license" in the middle of the night.

I'm pretty sure it was more than two, though.
