We have been here several times over the past years- at this time was not as amazing as past times- our waitress was very kind- however the food from salads to pasta let us a little underwhelmed - maybe we caught them on an off night- however the blueberry almond crisp was amazing!

We have eaten here many times though the years and we are always pleased. My husband and I had the trout special and it was excellent - the sauce was very tasty and light! Our friends enjoyed the saltimbocca and seemed to enjoy it. I shared the chocolate / caramel goodness for dessert and it was yummy! Our server was... More

Reservations recommended. Food was very good. Pasta is not home made but very good. That is the one item I would change. Staff was very friendly and knowledgable. You will like it hear.

A summer must when visiting Leelanau County. The food is always outstanding. Make sure you have reservations. Service was adequate but dropped towards dessert.

Make reservations! We went there without them and were lucky to get seated on the outdoor patio. Our waitress was great. I had the Anniversary Chicken (it was our anniversary after all), and it was very good. The other two in our party also enjoyed the meal. After we had finished, our waitress brought us a small bottle of champagne... More

My wife and I joined friends who own a lakeside place at Glen Arbor (by the way...water looks like the Caribbean)! Based on the reviews I see on this page - I'm shocked. We had both excellent food and excellent service. The place was packed. Very friendly servers and happy tables. Best eggplant parmesan of my life (my wife agreed... More

This is a cozy restaurant which offers traditional Italian cooking. Portions were tasty and hearty. The service was only average. I returned a dish that was too spicy and the server was not gracious about providing me with another dish. I'd still recommend going there, however. Maybe the server was just having a bad day.

We have a home in northern Michigan and have struggled to find good Italian food. No more. Even though the place is a one and a half hour's drive, we will return. Reservations are a must as the place was packed. I had a Veal Chop and my wife the Veal Saltimbocca. We ate the leftovers last night at home... More

These high reviews make me suspicious after visiting the restaurant. Simply put, waitress was not so friendly and the food was clearly store bought frozen. Pasta was flavorless and the salad was a joke. No kidding, i have had better Italian dishes from street vendors in an Italian festival. This food was terrible and way overpriced for the garbage it...
