Il Pirata is mostly a joint for regular friendly sports dive bar flies who love the Giants and 49ers, though one can't really enjoy the few screen TVs because of the bar chitter chatter. A couple of the bartenders are cool. The owner who also bartends hardly ever throws down drinks for regulars. Also, Happy Hours don't exist here. The music is mediocre here, ranging from terrible top 40, 80s (not the memorable ones, the songs you want to forget), terrible DJ techno on Wednesday nights, and once in awhile they have a DJ on Saturdays and Sundays who spins hip hop/reggae that is blasted from the speakers, so loud it sounds horrible. The food (pizza, chicken, salad) is tasty, but the dining area is dark and dingy. Reggae Sundays has an outside BBQ with tender jamaican chicken. The write-up mentions filet mignon, but I have never seen, heard, or been able to order it. The outside patio is full of local regulars who hog the dart board. Don't expect a romantic night time. The outside patio is right next to a dumpster, so foul smells come over sometimes and rumor has it thar small creatures sneak around the back. The restaurant summary and photos give you a false sense of uplifting, bright dining experience. Il PIrata is unpredictable and can be crowded or near empty, but most of it depends on if there are events, such as private party, salsa, or local sports night.
Pros: Parking, Food, Sports Screen TVs
