Great find - location is deceiving!

My husband and I almost didn't go in when we found it in a strip mall...next to an "adult" store. After reading great reviews while sitting in the parking lot, though, we decided to try it out. It was exactly what we were looking for - dressy but not stuffy, delicious without being expensive. We... read more

I have been visiting this restaurant for over 20 years and have always had consistently great food. Even after the owners changed, the food has been terrific. The service is inconsistent but generally good to great. We visited with a party of 6 last night, had reservations and were expecting a great experience. But this was my first experience dealing...

After many years of telling friends I wouldn't go to a restaurant on New Year's Eve as it is not a night I normally expect excellent service. Our waitress, Jamie, changed that. She was friendly, bright, on top of things and great. Even when there was a bit of a wait, she kept returning to the table. The food was... More

I'd give tonight a C, which is sad because we used to frequent this restaurant often, a few years ago. This New Year's Eve we decided to go back again as we couldn’t remember why we stopped going there. We would have gone to East side Mario’s in Livonia, but wanted to be closer to home, and decided against Caraberra's... More

Amazing food, you walk in the door and you smell the goodness. That itself says a ton! I am not a huge cannoli fan...but I went for it based on where I was...best I have ever had. Service was spectacular. What a great family business! Support the locals.

A hidden gem in Novi! The staff is amazing and attentive. You are always greeted like you're family when you go. Depending on the day/time, reservations are recommended. Attire can run from shorts/jeans to dresses/suits. The food is delicious - each dish prepared and presented by an top chef. You can't go wrong with any entree and there are specials... More

We found this on Trip Advisor and thought we'd try it out. Wow, we are so happy we did. We went with a total of 8 people and all of us loved it. The staff was very friendly and helpful with menu suggestions. The portions were awesome, especially with four hungry men. We would gladly recommend this restaurant to anyone... More

One of the best Italian meals I've had in a long long time. The lasagna was awesome. I highly recommend

We come here a couple times a month. This restaurant has very good food and unbelievable prices. They also have $5 house wine. The one thing I would say is less than spectacular is the salt content of some dishes. You may want to ask that the chef does not add any salt. Otherwise, a gem in the city!

Was there several time lately. Their menu is updated with excellent choices. It is very different from all the other Italian restaurants. They really make great food and the star are top shelf. Any choice you make will be great
