Best linguine with clam sauce

This quaint Italian restaurant is one of our favorites-skip the Olive Garden. Homemade garlic bread is wonderful. Used them to cater a small at home reception and everyone LOVED the good especially the chicken marshals.

This isn't a bad restaurant, it just isn't a good one. The food is average, but it is priced as if it were really good stuff. The inside is very plain, and the menu is very limited. Besides, Da Francesco is only a 3 minute walk south down Van Dyke, and it is fantastic! Make the walk.

I've been dining here for over a decade because it is such a great dining experience. The wait staff are wonderful. The chef commonly greets during your meal to ensure the meal is to your liking. The angel hair Bianco Romano is my favorite meal and the egg plant Parmesan is a close second. The atmosphere is intimate. I can't... More

You cannot go wrong at Di Fratelli's which is near Da Francesco's. Very good. Also, good prices. Excellent pizza and pasta dishes.

There are plenty of Italian eateries on the eastside but none better than this. This Italian eatery is just the place for fine authentic homemade dishes. This establishment caters to the family looking for great food and generous portions. Small cozy atmosphere defines this restaurant. From the homemade pasta sauces to the chicken dishes, calzones, pizza, salads with homemade dressings... More

Delicious. It's a family ran business - bonus for me. The menu is always appealing to me. I can always find something I want, and have to struggle to decide because there are too many good things to choose from. Bring your appetite!

So they catered lunch for us, I didn't go to the restaurant. YET. After tasting this food, I will go back. I have never had food that was this amazing from a restaurant, let alone a catered event. The best beef i have ever had out of a chafing dish. The chicken dishes were so amazingly tender yet flavorful. AND... More

My husband was upset because the "BOGO" coupon in the Entertainment book was limited to a $12.00 value and nothing on the menu was $12.00 or less. He complained to the waitress who handled it very well. Despite the complaint the service was great and the food was delicious. The portions are HUGE, even my husband couldn't finish it in... More

I have difficulty choosing between the egg plant parmigiana, chicken piccata, and the pizza! However, dessert is an easy choice...a slice of Canoli Pie!
