This is apparently a regional chain of pizzerias out of Chicago. There's one in downtown Toledo, so this review is for that location only and it's the only one I've been to.
The look of the place is cool. Brick walls, wood floors, glass partitions so not much is blocked from view. It's divided into three separate areas for eating, along with a bar area and a small bar upstairs in one of the dining areas. There's a section downstairs for quieter dining, a section as you go up the stairs and make a turn in which any time a band is playing you can hear them without having to strain to hear people around you, and a dining area in which the band stage is set up for people who want to watch close up and don't mind the noise. It's a pretty cool idea that everyone can eat in an area suited to them. There's also a huge section of the wall that open up and out. The food is good. Pizza is Chicago style deep dish, and while I prefer New York style it's a good pizza nonetheless. Calzones and other offerings are also tasty,as are the appetizers. As far as the beer goes, I wasn't surprised by the selection: the usual macros and a couple of Sam Adams offerings, namely the go-to Boston Lager and the seasonal, which for me has been the white and the Noble pils. It was nice to get a good pils on draft, but really I didn't have much choice. This is a place you go to hang out and have good mainstream Italian, maybe check out a band, and enjoy the atmosphere. It's certainly not where I go for beer. Service was good and prices were reasonable.
