It's funny, but i could have written the first review i read here. my opening line was to be, "Definitely a family-owned restaurant." My wife and I found this establishment looking for a quiet, peaceful dinner after a hectic few days getting our son settled in school, a long way from home. It... read more

Definitely a family-owned restaurant. Three generations were present: some working, some eating, and all chatting with us! That was fun. Our waiters were very courteous. The menu was standard and not imaginative, but the choice of homemade pastas was unusual (and more expensive). I found the sauces a bit runny (the blue cheese dressing and the alfredo sauce), and ordering... More

Food was excellent enjoyed it definitely one of the better meals I've had. Got chicken florentine this little old itlian women who happened to be the owner insisted we try one. Though it was weird not used to the family like atmosphere. Propobly because at the time it wasn't terribly buisy.

We went to this restaurant for a light supper and was never SO disgusted! We (2 couples) ordered the larger pizza with 2 toppings added (extra cost). An hour later we still didn't have our pizza. We had also ordered drinks. We got those right away. The waitress had come out about 20 minutes after we ordered to say they... More

If you are looking for freshly made from scratch Italian cuisine, this is the place. Good selection to choose from on the menu, with all your Italian favorites.

We live near Cadillac and this is one of our go to places to eat. It is expensive, but worth the money. The homemade pasta melts in your mouth! So good! Give it a try the next time you are coming to or through Cadillac!

We have been to this Italian Restaurant three separate times in July. And, we were there last summer probably six times. They are only open from Mid-May to the end of September for the past few years, and we look forward to the annual opening day! This is the real deal: The pasta is made right here--unless you order their... More

I had been to this restaurant once before in the off season and had a great experience so Ididn't hesitate to recommend it to the rest of our group. What a mistake. I ordered gnocchi with meatballs and a puntanesca sauce, it was $31, that's insane. The entree came out without the sauce I ordered and the meatballs tasted like... More
