Disclaimer - After spending over a week in Italy on our honeymoon, my wife and I agree Italian food in the US is typically disappointing in comparison. My wife and I ate here the other day for dinner. I had spaghetti and meatballs and she had the sausage baci al forno. We both thought the food was okay, but not... More

We were 4 friends. Seated promptly in a back corner. The food was terrific and plentiful. I had eggplant parm., my husband had spaghetti and meatballs. Our waitress Alex (female) was not very attentive. Forgot to bring dressings for our salads. Did not refill our water glasses. I requested an extra napkin, never got it. Our friends remarked how she... More

We ate here with another family, kids and adults enjoyed their food. Chicken Marsala best I've ever had! Service was excellent. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

Service was very good. Waitress was friendly, and very knowledgeable of the menu, and specials. Food was good. It was very noisy, and could not hear the waitress, or ourselves talk. This was our 30th anniversary, and we were from Ohio, visiting family. Thought it would be nice to have dinner in an authentic Italian restaurant. But kind a disappointed... More

Wow. All these good reviews lead me to believe we just hit a bad night. Came in and were pleased that they did their best to get us seated in about 15 minutes. VERY crowded and noisy... Why do people scream at people sitting 3 feet away? I'll never understand. Lol. Party ordered wine - I ordered espresso which was... More

Visited with work colleagues. Great Italian cuisine, attentive, friendly staff. Check out the specials board for some great dishes. On my list of must visits when I'm over from the UK.

Wonderful meal on a cold night! The pasta was amazing and the staff was great - even making a cocktail for a friend that was not on the menu. The appetizers were great and I can't wait to get back again.

Several of my friends, while attending the Michigan Golf Show went to Maisano's and it's a small place in a little strip mall area, but really wonderful food. We had chicken Parm, Lasagna, Chicken Marinaro and caeser Salad. Wine selection is huge and you can't go wrong eating here!

Great family restaurant. Entree are $11-$15 each. A little noisy for a quiet couple dinner but fine for kids. Lots of families their. Very friendly atmosphere. Service a bit slow on a busy Saturday night but food is good. Soups are excellent clearly homemade. Sauce is good. Lasagna is a winner. Homemade fresh blue berry bread is a winner with... More

Went here for my daughter's birthday. We had a new waitress, so a few things went wrong. They have a very good menu of Italian Food. My husband got a steak and it was just so so. Stick with the typical Italian food here. Was very busy so make an reservation. Prices were very good, so I would try again.
