This California restaurant certainly doesn’t like the state’s mask mandate.

Basilico’s Pasta e Vino, an Italian restaurant in Huntington Beach, Calif., Recently put up a “Godfather” themed billboard to show its opposition to masks.

The billboard – which uses a font similar to the iconic poster from the 1972 film – says “Leave the mask, take the cannoli,” according to a KTLA photo taken on Monday.

The line is derived from a famous quote in “The Godfather,” which says, “Leave the gun, take the cannoli. ”

Basilico appears to have first posted this post on his Instagram page in July.

In August, the restaurant started selling T-shirts with the same message on the back, according to KTLA.
