This is one of my husbands and I's favorite restaurants. It's a cute place and the food is homemade and authentic Italian. Everything is good.

enjoyable Italian fare. Service is good and reasonable prices. Somewhat small and usually very busy. I would recommend reservations.

My favorite Italian restaurant in the entire US (and I've been to NYC). Menu options are plentiful. Staff is very accomodating and willing to modify your meal if you request or ask for opinion if you can't decide. Very friendly and adds another level of enjoyment to your dining experience. They do offer a good selection of gluten free options.... More

This restaurant is so quaint and cozy and has a real authentic old Italian rustic feel to it. The food is wonderful. I have dined with just my husband and also with a large family group. Never have I heard of anyone being disappointed in their food. It's just always top notch. Service is always right on. They also have... More

It is really hard to go wrong at this place. The classics are good. The soup is made from scratch and is always great. It is located in a strip center that is perpendicular to Van Dyke so it can be easy to miss. Once you find it you will not be disappointed.

Very authentic. Family friendly. This is our normal family meeting spot. Everything you will order is beyond expectations. Specials run weekly and worth every dime.

This is by far by favorite Italian restaurant. Their sauce is soooo good - so if you get spaghetti, lasagna, ravioli, anything with the sauce is out of this world!!! I love their eggplant parmigiana -- it is the best I have ever had!!! I have tried it at a couple other Italian restaurants, and it just doesn't come close.... More
