Typical Italian family restaurant. Meals are very well prepared, never had a bad item here. Typical types of Italian dishes, nothing bad, nothing extraordinary. But head & shoulders above most Italian chains. Disclamer: grew up near Cleveland's Little Italy (Murray Hill), so my experience with Italian food could be a bit more expectant than others. Prices are average but you... More

The restaurant is small but very cute! The food was very good and the portions are big. We went on New Years Eve and the place was packed! Only problem is there is really no waiting area so we had to stand by the door but it wasn't a big deal.

My sister and I went to Maisanos after shopping in the area. Neither of us had been but we read the reviews and thought we would Gove it a try. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress who took us to our table and quickly brought us water. She returned fairly quickly and took our drink order and brought... More

Christmas Eve 2013 found us without power for 8 days. We had three adult children and two grandchildren visiting and no way to cook. What to do? We picked Maisano's because it was close to the only hotel we could find with rooms in unfamiliar Novi Michigan. We not only had a wonderful meal, but were treated like royalty by... More

Wonderful, family owned place, with real italian dishes that actually have some flavor. Tomato sauces that taste like real tomatoes were used, not some canned, processed glop like in so many other so-called Italian restaurants. Fresh food, great flavors, friendly service.

Went with friends to check out this small family run Italian restaurant. We were all very pleased with our meals. Pasta dishes were very good. The perch special was excellent as well as a chicken, sausage and shrimp pasta special. Decent wine selection but first Pinot Noir pour tasted old. It was returned without question and replaced with a very... More

The service was great she was very nice and the owners make us feel extremely welcomed they are very nice and the food is good the fillet mignon is very good but the sauce was a little sour but if you scrape off a little bit, it will be tasty.

This is a little strip mall Italian restaurant. It was a forty five minute wait at 7:30 on Saturday. The food was delicious, wonderful waitress and a great evening! We would definitely go back.

We stopped in for a quick dinner this week because we were shopping in the area. I had only been here once and it's been a few years. But I remembered it as small, cozy, and good italian food. The location and atmosphere haven't changed. But the food was not good, especially not for the price and standards the restaurant... More

As new residents of the Novi area, my boyfriend and I wanted to try this local Italian restaurant to get away from the standard Olive Garden style fare. We did not have reservations but we went late enough that they were able to seat us. The food was pretty good, and reasonably priced. Plus the atmosphere was good. It is... More
