Gaga has invested her hard-earned cash in Upper West Side Italian restaurant, Vince & Eddie's, according to the NY Post.

The owner recalls how the partnership with the pop star went down. Peter Dee says, "They were customers, and they approached us. We have done some promotions with her in the past."

In addition to Gaga's involvement, her parents have also joined in the venture.

Vince & Eddie's, described as "homey and private," opened back in 1989.
