Recommended to me by a local. Best recommendation ever. Minestrone soup is a must and have some fun by trying the appetizer platter. I had the Dover Soul and it very well prepared. It's an charming dated restaurant that is well maintained and has varied booth sizes for romance or friends to get cozy. Staff is excellent. Our waiter, John... More

In a word ... Underwhelmed. Service was good, food was decent overall. I'm told the steaks are very good ... Just seriously overpriced. Ordered eggplant parm that was nothing more than several breaded patties w/cheese squares melted on top ... Really! Even with a Groupon this restaurant is no bargain and we left disappointed by the experience. Olive Garden, Bravo... More

Whether it's a family celebration, a romantic rendezvous or simply an evening out Lelli's has been my favourite fine dining venue since the original site in Detroit. I dine at Lelli's about four times a year and have never been disappointed. One thing you MUST bring with you when you go to Lelli's is an appetite. The 5 course meals... More

Tried Lelli's for the first time last night and it was excellent. The service was first rate and the steak was one of the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is nice, a little old school but I liked it, and we were treated very well by everyone from the valet to the manager. All in all I would highly... More

Had dinner here on a Thursday night. The restaurant's decor is a little confused-old school italian leather with christmas lights hanging up. The service was excellent-very attentive and friendly. Had the filet mignon, which was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. (Even though it was missing the zip sauce.) The pasta dish was well made also-homemade pasta with generous fillings. Caesar...

A few days ago my wife and I had a lovely dinner at a venerable Detroit suburban restaurant Called Lelli's. I say venerable because I have been dining at this wonderful institution for over 40 years. The original location was in the heartland of Detroit and and it opened in 1939. First time I had dinner at lelli's it was... More

I really like this classical Italian restaurant. It's a bit old school, but that's the charm of this place. Service is strong, the menu has plenty of good options and the wine list offers good value. Valet parking is even available during the week. We've never been disappointed and will continue to enjoy Lelli's for traditional Italian fare.

Went there with the Groupon which only allowed us to purchase the six course dinner. This is way too much food. Who can or should eat that much food in one sitting? Had to take a lot home. I ordered the lobster which came dry and overcooked. They offered to take it back and bring me something else because they... More
