Ha, it took me a second. I don't know why I do this, but sometimes when I am reading certain things I will skip over the parts that my mind tells me aren't important to the general information. In this case, I skipped the restaurant name the first time around, which isn't important to the story, but is definitely important with regard to the joke.

Non fare lo stronzo, Andy: I look better than that even mugged.
