The food is always wonderful. Always. The service this visit was disappointing. We had reservations. We waited. They squeezed us in very, very, very tightly. We felt like we were having dinner with the guests at the next table. Service was okay. We love the...More

Two couples who routinely dine in the greater Detroit area went here for dinner last night. We chose Maisano’s after looking at reviews on-line and one of us calling to get more information. All seemed to be positive. We got in at 6:00 pm ahead...More

Went here while in business in Novi, staying nearby. Wanted an easy, walking-distance restaurant, and was not expecting excellence. Maisano's was great. The food and wine were good, the service was great (Stephanie), and the atmosphere was relaxing. Would definitely recommend it to other people...More

We decided to give Maisano's another try after one good experience and one not so good experience. The food (lasagna, veal parmigiana, chicken piccata, beef tips, onion soup, Caesar salad, plus others) was exceptionally good. The veal parmigiana was the only dish that wasn't thoroughly...More

This place is a hidden gem in Novi. Small and casual but incredible Italian dishes. We started off with the St. Louis fried ravioli as an appetizer. We requested Marinara sauce and it was excellent. Their mussels we cooked to perfection. The chicken piccata was...More

They do have tables and booths. Although it is tight in there I'm sure they could move some things around to accommodate.
