We having been eating at Spaghetti Jim's since they opened 3 years ago. How can you go wrong with homemade Pasta and fantastic suaces? Especially like the daily menu page. So glad they have the additional dining area now. They also serve "local" North Woods Soda Pop!

We eat at Spaghetti Jim's every time we visit Traverse City. It's a surprise to find such a great restaurant in a strip mall, and a little out of the way - but so totally delightful! They make all their own pasta and top off pasta dishes with a wonderful parmesan crisp. Everyone in our group has always enjoyed the... More

Been twice and though the food was great and inexpensive. Service could be better. Atmosphere is not a priority here, but that's ok. It's just a little strip mall shop. I'm just gonna keep going back until I change my mind. Little worried about the expansion, too much?

My wife and I stopped for lunch and had some wonderful Italian cuisine. We both enjoyed the home made pasta's and sauce. Salads are fresh and individually prepared. The cafe is expanding to the store front next door. Jim said there would some new dining options, we can hardly wait!

We were on vacation in August 2012 - sorry for the delay in writing this review! (I just found the menu we brought home, and it reminded me of our two visits...) Excellent, friendly, and authentic. The Eggplant Parm was the best I'd ever had. The saltimbocca was divine. The lasagne was the bomb.com! Our family of five were welcomed... More

We went for lunch as part of a Tasty Morsels Tour (which we also recommend). The place is the size of postage stamp stuck in a nondescript strip mall. But, the pasta is homemade and always fresh. Jim made the pasta in front of us, then cooked and served it with a wonderful meat sauce. He also whipped up a... More

We walked into Spaghetti Jim's upon our first visit and was greeted by Jim himself! He made us feel like family coming for dinner the moment we entered his restaurant. He offered to make anything we might be hungry for and suggested the squash stuffed ravioli with his "special homemade" sauce and was I glad I took his advice! Fantastic... More

Love this place. We had a catered meal back in January and made a special point to eat here on a recent trip to Traverse City. The food is delicious. It is home-style Italian, full of flavor. The staff is super and friendly.

If you want the best and freshest pasta in TC, then come to Spaghetti Jim's!!! Made fresh daily by a man who loves to cook. So, it is a little hard to find, so what? So, the service is a little slow sometimes, so what? When that food hits your taste buds it is like you died and went to... More
