Everything is excellent....never a bad meal here!

We have eaten here umpteen times and have enjoyed it each time. The waitstaff is attentive and caring. Enjoy the fine bread that is brought to the table after you order. The balsamic and olive oil dipping mixture is delish! You cannot go wrong with any pasta in this obvious Italian restaurant... read more

Traveling from G.R. to Detroit. Best Italian meal I've ever had. Excellent service. Worth driving a mile or two after the exit ramp in rush hour traffic.

French onion soup very good for an Italian restaurant! Pizza delicious. Staff fast and friendly. Highly recommended. Especially Sunday night with the car show and free concert. Rum and coke could have been stronger.

Been there twice because I always give a 2nd chance. Really NO Improvement from the first time Although they have a large variety, the are VERY OVER PRICED compared to other top notch Italian eateries. Staff was slow, even on the week nights. The decor was very nice, but you can't taste decor for dinner. I have been to many... More

As usual the food here was great and being able to sit at a table on the sidewalk and enjoy the view of the pond made the experience even better. At times it was very loud because of street noise and parking was very tight as there were several events going on downtown

Our family of three ate dinner here on May 14, 2015. We started with a bottle of Classico Chianti from Italy which is a favorite wine of ours. For an appetizer, we ordered calamari which was served with a red sauce with tomato and onion - the calamari was very good. For an entree, I had one of the specials... More
