I wish I could give a good review for this place because I know they are a family owned business with a long history in the area and they appear to be struggling so I will start with the positives first. There is a pretty view of the lake from pretty much anywhere in the restaurant. The home made bread... More

Avoid this place at all costs. While we had a great server who seated us right away. Our service went downhill right away. Our first clue should have been we were the only customers in the building. next were all the cobwebs and spider webs in all the windows that face the lake.Our server took our orders and then brought...

It's funny, but i could have written the first review i read here. my opening line was to be, "Definitely a family-owned restaurant." My wife and I found this establishment looking for a quiet, peaceful dinner after a hectic few days getting our son settled in school, a long way from home. It turned out to be a great choice....

Definitely a family-owned restaurant. Three generations were present: some working, some eating, and all chatting with us! That was fun. Our waiters were very courteous. The menu was standard and not imaginative, but the choice of homemade pastas was unusual (and more expensive). I found the sauces a bit runny (the blue cheese dressing and the alfredo sauce), and ordering... More

Food was excellent enjoyed it definitely one of the better meals I've had. Got chicken florentine this little old itlian women who happened to be the owner insisted we try one. Though it was weird not used to the family like atmosphere. Propobly because at the time it wasn't terribly buisy.

We went to this restaurant for a light supper and was never SO disgusted! We (2 couples) ordered the larger pizza with 2 toppings added (extra cost). An hour later we still didn't have our pizza. We had also ordered drinks. We got those right away. The waitress had come out about 20 minutes after we ordered to say they... More

If you are looking for freshly made from scratch Italian cuisine, this is the place. Good selection to choose from on the menu, with all your Italian favorites.

We live near Cadillac and this is one of our go to places to eat. It is expensive, but worth the money. The homemade pasta melts in your mouth! So good! Give it a try the next time you are coming to or through Cadillac!
