Excellent Italian , great stuffed animal atmosphere

Excellent bruschetta and Stromboli , 3rd time here. Will come again. A little pricey but worth it. Gave us 10% off with room # at Clarion

While stop" ping overnight to stay in Feb. during the "off-season", worst customer service I have ever experienced and do not even attempt to offer what their menu suggests. Be prepared to be hung up on. They should not even have a business license of any kind.

The scenery is unbelievable and the food is very good. Our grandchildren loved seeing the animals. My husband loved all the wood furniture.

We go here every time we vacation here. The place is wonderful inside and the food is always very good. When it's busy the service is slow but the wait is worth it.

What was so memorable about this restaurant is the bizarre atmosphere - taxidermy all over the place including full size bears, wolves, beavers, raccoons, elk, even a zebra head. It's really remarkable and I enjoyed having the little brown bears staring at me while I ate. And…all amongst little pine trees with strung with white Christmas lights which sort of... More

This place was very strange. There were taxidermied animals from every available space - rafters, walls, ceilings. It was disconcerting to be in an Italian restaurant and the decor be so non-Italian. I saw a stuffed Zebra, Baboon, Lion, Wolf, and everything in between. It was like hunting gluttony. My dining companions and I were not expecting to see such... More

My wife and I travel to Mackinaw City every fall. We like to have one night that we have a really nice meal and we have chosen Nonna Lisa's because last year it was AWESOME! We even brag to everyone who goes to Mackinaw to spend the extra money and have a really great meal. NEVER AGAIN! I don't know... More

What a strange restaurant. There's taxidermy everywhere, which is kind of cool but overwhelming, & rustic wood furniture with sharp edges. You'll find a stuffed giraffe, lion, & polar bear, along with a raccoon, skunk, & beaver rowing a little canoe. I ordered lobster ravioli, which, now in hindsight, probably wasn't a good idea. It was inedible. The pasta was... More
