I am a hard sell for Italian, but love this restaurant. Great food, service and drinks. Give it a shot. You"ll agree. The owner seems young, but very experienced.

This Italian restaurant is worth the drive out of our way. It's not in a very populated part of town, but after we found Mike La Susa's, we have gone back many times with friends. The pastas are all excellent and the chicken parmesan is superb! Everything is full of flavor and the waiters are friendly and efficient. It is... More

We traveled more than one hour to have dinner at La Susa's after seeing the restaurant on Restaurant Impossible. The food was excellent. We started with the calamari and bruschetta appetizers which were extremely fresh and flavorful. For dinner we ordered Lasagna and chicken parmagiana. The meals were mouthwatering and outstanding. Considering the high quality of the food, the food... More

Visited Mike La Susa's the other night and were very pleased with the restaurant. It's a little out of the way but well worth it for the food. We ordered the fish fry and pesto gnocchi with mushrooms, tomatoes and onions. I thought the gnocchi was fabulous with the creamy pesto sauce and cooked to perfection. The fish was cooked... More

I wrote a negative review in November but promised to return in the future. The menu changes from Restaurant Impossible are slowly going away. We returned for an excellent fish fry. Prices have returned to a market normal and the meal was good. Fresh salad has been replaced with cole slaw (too bad) and a large helping of seasoned french... More

Most of the reviews that are negative about Mike La Susa Restaurant experience are probably from friends of the parents and from a small town people who cannot adapt to change. Complain about menu prices?? Have you been to the grocery store lately?? who love to stir up trouble. Mike (son) is doing a fantastic job thanks to Robert Irvine... More

Friends recommended Mike La Susa's and we went with them this past Saturday night. I am familiar with most restaurants in the area, but had never heard of this place. The 4 of us were very pleased. Unlike some of the comments I've read about this place, the menu size is just perfect. Many places have so many items on... More

The steak and potatoes (gnocchi) were phenomenal. Was a little more pricey than I expected but you definitely get what you pay for. The steak was the size of my plate and the gnocchi was flavored perfectly. My husband loved his chicken parmesan as well. We will definitely come back again. The atmosphere was just right for us. It was... More

Let's be honest: there is only one reason the former M. LaSusa's wasn't killing it--location. It's not just a hidden gem--it's in nowheresville. The menu was varied, the colors and paintings were beautiful, and the staff was talkative and kind. The Restaurant Impossible visit has changed some things but they can't take them out of that location. The food is... More
