The menu tours the Meditterranean at this welcoming spot in an unpromisingly bland suburban mall. Nothing timid about the flavors--the tapenade that topped my perfectly cooked branzino positively sang with garlic. Toothsome chunks of olive told me it had been ground traditional style with a mortar and pestle, not buzzed in a blender. My roasted asparagus salad with slices of duck was one of those vaguely unsatisfying dishes in which ingredients of the first quality don't quite come together, but the chef's heart is in the right place, with freshness and depth of flavor. The menu was so rich in tempting choices, I wanted to try just about everything (guess I should have picked the dates with chorizo instead of the salad). Service was warm and professional (kudos to the bartender for the strawberry and citrus drink he created for my teetotaling husband).

I went for dinner with family and was impressed with all the wonderful food options. Had the calamari, a cheese mushroom appetizer and had the Rib eye steak as my main dish. The ribeye was one of the best I've had. Flavorful and seasoned well and juicy tender. The decor was inviting and the wait staff was very attentive. The place is a hidden gem literally. It's hard to see from the street behind the world market.

A great stop. Saw the reviews on Trip Advisor as Im traveling alone for business. I sat outside & despite it being very warm out, felt relaxed & as if I was dining in Italy or Greece (minus seeing Olive Garden across the parking lot (sigh)).. The food was fantastic! A great stop for anyone who is looking to avoid the chain thing & support an Ann Arbor small business.

I went by myself and ordered the scallops. Very flavorful and over the best mashed potatoes I've ever had and a great sauce.

Nice atmosphere, excellent and professional service to the smallest details, gourmet food, and not expensive at all!
Try the special Gnudi and the wonderful chocolate desert
