Yummy and an unexpected surprise. I was impressed with quality of the food and garlic knots! No pricey at all as I live in the Grand Traverse region which is filled with touristy places.

My colleagues and I occasionally have business in Cadillac mi. We have learned to plan our trips around a vivo,s meal. The garlic knots are delicious and served hot. Pasta dishes are mouth watering and high quality. It doesn't look like much from the outside but inside is heaven for the senses. We've never had bad service and prices are... More

The service was excellent. The atmosphere was so enjoyable as seating is small in different rooms. The food was so unique and plenty of choices on the menu. Certainly not just a pizza place. The portions are plenty and great cheese on their salads. Will surely go back again. So nice to go to a restaurant that is not a... More

We took part of our family there. It was authentic Italian food and very good. They even had selections for our 2 year old granddaughter. Great servers also.

It is really cool place with separate rooms for eating in. We ordered pizza takeout and the items were fresh and plenty. The crust was the best. It is the... More

This is the place to go for italian! No frozen entrees heated up like at the chain italian restaurants - this is the real deal and at very good prices. I would eat here every day if it wasn't for the carbs!!!

If you like pesto on your pizza, this is where you go to get it. They also have, like, 2 kinds of mac and cheese.

We've eaten there several times and have enjoyed their pizza which has really good cheese (they dn't skimp on the toppings either). We've had several pasta dishes which were okay but nothing special that made me want to order them again. Staff and owners are very friendly providing very good service.
