I have been here probably 30 times in the last four years or so. Always thought of it as respectable food, fairly priced, good staff, and a nice little wine list. Over the last couple of years I thought the food was not as good as it once was, but still acceptable.Last night we had a casual dinner for my... More

We stopped for an early dinner. The restaurant was not busy. It is a small restaurant that reminds of a neighborhood restaurant in Chicago. Our server was excellent. I had the chicken picante and it was wonderful. My husband had the herb encrusted tilapia and thought it was very good. Definitely recommend the banana cheesecake. It is made in-house and... More

Had an overnight trip to the area and found this place via TripAdvisor. Made reservations and we were given the last table available when we arrived a short time later. The restaurant is small and wonderful. Felt more like a family reunion than a group of strangers sitting near each other. Jessica was our server and she provided excellent and... More

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
