Went inside restaurant and stood at counter for about 5 minutes. I saw no workers at all. I walked into the dining part and still saw no one. It was like a ghost town. I promptly left. Never got a chance to try food from the new owners and I never will. I refuse to go back. What a terrible... More

Hey, we are sorry to hear that you stopped by when nobody seemed to be tending the restaurant, about what time was it you were here because I know on the day it must have been me and my co-owner are very busy and we have just replaced our doorbell system on our door, but we may have not heard...

Four of us wanted to sample the new owners food and were greatly disappointed. Food was OK, service was OK, but nothing was exceptional, not even outstanding, only OK.I do not think any of will return.

This used to be a great place to get take out pasta. We stopped by the other day and found that it has closed. There was an article in the local paper saying that the owner is retiring but hoping to sell to someone who wants to continue in that location.

First of all we were seated (in an almost empty dining room) right next to the server station. We asked to be seated by the window. The server acted very bothered the entire time we were there. I would ask a questions, she blurted an answer and would turn on her heels as fast as possible to get away. We... More

Had dinner with wife and friends on a mid-week evening. Not crowded, but service was sketchy - nobody asked if I wanted a refill on my iced tea (Yes!), dishes were stacked on our table (by us) then almost reluctantly removed and tje waitress rang up our bill 4 times before getting it right... BUT!! The food is Great! Homemade... More

I often rely on tripadvisor reviews when traveling for work or leisure with a pretty good accuracy rate. My experience at this restaurant was the single biggest discrepancy between the reviews and our experience in all our years of travel. Comments by category: Location and Physical Attributes - the restaurant is located in a run down plaza with zero ambiance... More

Reasonably priced, fresh, tasty Italian fare served with love in a casual setting. Homemade pastas, pesto, etc. One of my favorites in Traverse City!

We had lunch at the office and ordered take out. They forgot the side salads, so we had to go back and get them. On the plus side, they gave us free cookies for our trouble. I ordered the Pasta Americana, which was basically spaghetti with baked cheese on top. It was VERY greasey (from the cheese?). They gave a... More

I went to Spaghetti Jim's with my wife expecting a great italian meal, mainly driven by all of the positive comments here on tripadvisor. Our experience was quite the opposite. Not only did we get seated at a table with a great view of the dishwashing area, but we experienced some of the worst service we've had in a long... More
