Due Venti is a special place - operated by a couple with passion for food and service. It's located in an unassuming suburb of Detroit and not where you would anticipate finding a destination restaurant. Yet it works. The decor is light and airy filled with pictures and pieces from the couple's family collectables. Tables are set nicely. It's small (around a dozen tables inside and a few on an outside patio that can be used seasonally weather permitting). The food is excellent. Choices are from a seasonally changing menu - and in a sign of detailed attention, it is limited in size. And then they do their preparations with a twist. We began with a delightful green bean salad, done with a light herbed oil and topped with a poached egg; a surprisingly good combination. Understanding that Italian cuisine is the preparation - we've have it world-wide, means that you can use different ingredients not necessarily found in Italy. We were recently in Australia and had the wonderful experience of the delectable fish barramundi; here it was prepared perfectly and served over white beans; the Pacific red snapper again cooked perfectly and served over a pesto inspired risotto; flatbreads with prosciutto nicely done. Wines nicely paired available by glass or bottle. Service attentive and professional. A place to dine - take your time - in the Italian style.
