“Good food and close to hotel”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Owner is from Italy and she greets all guests. She made us a complimentary Italian dessert dish. Big wine list. Moving soon to downtown location (about 3 miles from hotel).

“Traditional Italian in a family atmosphere.”
Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

My family was in town for graduation at Notre Dame. Sunny Italy was recommended by a friend and we found it a great experience. The food was good, the atmosphere welcoming and the service excellent.

“Overpriced average fare.”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Seems to have a loyal local following but pasta is pretty typical. Better options for authentic Italian in this town...

“Great Steaks and Pasta”
Reviewed October 25, 2011

This place is the real deal. Food is obviously made from scratch, not defrosted from a box like most Italian restaurants. The meatballs are wonderful, sauce is great, and the sides are delicious. Honestly, though, the best thing they have here is the steak. Order it with french fries, then use the fries to sop up the juices from the steak.....doesn't get any better. Unless you add their side of green beans to it. Do not come here expecting romance or atmosphere, though. The place badly needs to be redecorated. Come for the food. You won't be disappointed.
