The menus nothing fancy, composed mostly of pasta, a few sandwiches, a simple pizza, and some pastries. And while the surroundings are clean and comfy, the amenities are homey at best. But when you and a bud each can snare an ample portion of spaghetti with homemade meatballs and share a freshly stuffed cannoli, and still get change from a $20, thats what we call a bargain. Beer and wine are available.

Nor does it hurt that the full bar carries a solid selection of draft beers as well as every Irish whiskey available in the U.S.
A snug little hideaway just behind the Q, Cleats is part of a rapidly growing local chain of sports bars. Wings are the kitchen's claim to fame, but we've got our eyes on the fries fresh-cut cuties so good, we sometimes order them without the cheese and bacon.

If youthful and edgy are what it takes to toss your trenne, this snug little restaurant at the far end of a Parma strip plaza may not be your kind of place.
