This place has the most disgusting red sauce on the planet. They have different versions but the sweet sauce is like eating candy spaghetti sauce, horrible! I love their huge endless salad and their Italian sausage. The pizza is nothing special, and they barely put any toppings on at all. This place is for people who do not know good... More

Stopped in for a family birthday dinner. Service was great food was great.....except Davison doesn't have Spitini on the menu. Enjoyed the meal, but will probably drive to Flint for Spitini next time.

We had tried this place years ago and didn't care for the sweet tomato sauce, but we had friends that said they liked it, so we thought we'd give it one more chance and try something without tomato sauce. Scampi was weird and awful. This is just not quality Italian food. It was all so disappointing.

My husband and I go to Italia Gardens about every other month, either to this one in Davison or the one in Flint. I decided to try their Shrimp Scampi, one of their Lenten Specials. While waiting, we had their salad and bread. Salad was fine, but bread was as hard as a rock. Seriously, with the serrated knife, my... More

I hear the 80's are hip again so stop into Italia gardens to relish in the decor and food. Seriously this place needs a fresh look and fresh menu. Food was ok but nothing to come back for, decor was laughable. This format may have worked 20 years ago but this place is likely bleeding cash daily.

Great place to eat. Family style garden salad with wonderful nippy Italian dressing. Fresh warm bread. You can have as much of these as you want with an entree. The baked spaghetti is a huge portion smothered in cheese and a lovely sweet Italian tomato sauce. The Service could not be better. Our server was Nephew of the owner. He... More
