It was very crowded and noisy in this place. Very dark to eat a meal and very pricey in our opinion, for nothing special.

Had dinner here ' Nonna Lisa's Stromboli" - it was enough for 2 of us to share and very tasty. Beer recommendations by waiter also tasty.

The food was amazing!! The kids enjoyed their meals as well and loved walking around and looking at all the different animals! We will be visiting again!

The good was so so. This is the first place that I have ever been to that does not put cheese on top of their pasta dishes. Sauce was runny, definitely pureed. Cabin/outdoorsy feel was weird. Sat next to the animal display; not big into eating next to a stuffed wolf and bear. My chair kept getting bumped from all... More

Fast, big portions, nice crew, very strong tastes. Decoration may not be nice for all (taxidermy all around, animals from around the world) but for Up North Michigan it's perfect. Price is a little hight but worth it. Food is great, not really Italian but.. Who cares if it's good food.

My first time in this ristortante was superior good. the entire place looks exquiste and with an rustic scenery and the tables were nice, also very clean. they do not seem busy during weekdays probably because people dont go there. i would say, our waitress was friendly and she seated my family within five minutes. silverware is already set on...

My husband and I got seated right away on a Monday night around 7. It took 4 mins to get drinks by a young man with an Italian accent. I had the fettucine Alfredo with grilled chicken (perfect) and my husband had the Tuscan tour (great). Cooked perfectly and flavorful. I only gave it four stars due to the price.... More

Food was disgusting, service was slow. Would never recommend. Plenty of other restaurants in the area.

service was pretty good depending who you get. Think decent Italian food in a log cabin atmosphere with lots of dead stuffed animals on the wall and ceiling. Recommend the steak and Gorgonzola Alfredo. It was super good. And the salad before was really perfect too. For the price it was pretty good. nothing special but better than most places... More
