This restaurant was recommended by the hotel where we spent the night. The wine list was extensive; the menu varied and several off-menu items were offered as well. Service was excellent with our waitress being the right combination of friendly and professional...no "dearie, honey, little...lady" etc. comments that make me crazy! Portions were adequate and everything we ordered was made fresh. We enjoyed the meal very much.More

If you like Italian food don't miss Necce's Ristorante. The owner makes authentic dishes from Italy and we can enjoy right here! The owner has just added outdoor seating, weather permitting, she has just created an Italian feel to enjoy the food. The food is...excellent, the service excellent, the decor excellent also. Can you save room for dessert? I hope so! While not Italian- the carrot cake is beyond words! It is a new level of carrot cake. We came with the pandemic and the precautions Neece's takes are so respectful and great. It felt good to go out, yet be safe. This is a special, amazing place! I hope you get the chance to enjoy Necce's. Make reservations if you can as they are spacing people out. I hope to return soon. Everything our group ate was perfection!More

We ate here on a Saturday night in July. We did get a reservation on the patio since we had our dog with us, but there were only one or two other tables occupied. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable, and the patio area...has been remodeled very well to create a nice outdoor space. I had the sausage manicotti and my wife had the salmon caesar salad, and we had the classic tomato bruschetta for a starter, which featured locally grown tomatoes. All the food was great and plentiful, so we had leftovers for the next day. There was one small hiccup in that my wife was originally served a shrimp caesar, but we immediately brought it to our server's attention, and it was corrected surprisingly quickly. My food had just cooled enough for me to eat by the time her corrected order was delivered. There was more than sufficient wine choices, but I did think the beer selection was a little weak. All in all though, a great meal at a great restaurant.More

We love Necce’s food is excellent but never less than 90 minutes for a meal. A mandatory service fee of 6% to keep quality staff is not a great way to attract customers. I always tip 20% but now won’t tip,that much if they are...charging a service fee.More

We expected too much. With a reservation made the day before, we were seated at a table next to the door to the patio. We should have declined. Too polite. Manicotti was very rich with meat and cheese. The pasta was hard to find. Lasagna...actually had too much cheese. The substitution of spaghetti noodles in the mushroom dish left it very runny. Service was very attentive. All in all, not up to the hype.More

We ordered 3 entrees tonight - Shrimp Scampi, Spaghetti Carbonara and Steak Diane. They were positively scrumptious, perfectly flavored and cooked to perfection. We had carrot cake for dessert which is a delight for the tastebuds and the perfect bite of sweet to top off...a great meal. This is a family run business with consistent service and top notch food. I’m sorry to report we didn’t get pictures before devouring our meal...yes, it’s THAT good. 😊More

Neither my nor I can recall if they do and their website didn't help, so I'd give a call. Our restaurant, the Dorset Chick'N Coop (broasted chicken, steaks, pizza, walleye, seafood) has a kids menu with all prices $3.95 or... More

I'm sorry, I thought u you came in June 22... That's when the Rotary Club was there. No matter what, I am sorry for your long wait time and I don't know why it would have taken that long. I do apologize.
