Italian in Michigan

Quaint restaurant in the heart of New Buffalo. I liked the fact that their menu wasn't 6 pages long, but basically the same items offered daily, with small tweaks every week as specials.

Great Italian food. Limited menu selection the drink menu is bigger than the food menu but the food was great. They have amazing outdoor seating. If you are going to eat that is the place to sit.

Fantastic Environment, Food and Value! This is such a great place to go. There is a dinner for two, drinks, pizza, entrée, and salads...so much food for under $25.00 We took about half back to the hotel and was just as good the next day. Each are of the restaurant had it's own unique ambiance. The wood fired pizza is... More

Good food, good service and good location. Good selection of wines by the glass. Pasta with meatballs was excellent. Large portion. I will definitely go back.

A great place to dine. I have come here for lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. The service is always good. The patio is really nice if the weather is cooperating. Nice family place!

Amazing Italian cafe. Transported my mother back to Italy. Fresh and tasty dishes that are made with obvious love. We ate here multiple times as the quality and pricing just can't be beat!

We enjoyed this restaurant, had a cocktail in bar and enjoyed dinner on the patio. I wouldn't take my kids back. Not that they didn't have kids options, they did and enjoyed their choices, just a more adult atmosphere and tables outside close, which isn't fun with my loud kids.

Lots of seating outside, yet the layout is done well that you almost feel like you are sitting in a garden by yourself! We will definitely go back and would love to try an entree..... Our pizza was just a quick... More
