“Great Food - Terrific Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

This small restaurant in downtown South Haven has wonderful Italian food. Good pizza and I love the lasagna. We enjoy coming here as a couple or bringing our family. Good atmosphere, good food, and even their own wine.

My most recent experience was with a group of 18 children and parents. We were Christmas Caroling downtown and made plans to start here with pizza. They have a nice size upper room and we took it over. They had 8 pizzas and pitchers of soft drinks for us when we arrived. They were so accommodating to our group, you would have thought we were big spenders. The children felt very special eating out like this and had a great experience.

Can speak highly enough of this quality place - simple lunch, romantic dinner, or with a large group of children.

“Good atmosphere, terrible food”

The atmosphere is warm, cozy and our server was excellent. However, the pasta was really ... Not good. I wanted so much to like it.

“Good sized portions.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

The portions are very generous. We thought the food was good but not great. Seems like a nice family place. Our server was a little perplexed when I asked which dish he would recommend based on the two I was considering.

Reallly growing from the little place it started as. Has wines in collaboration with the wonderful vinyard Fenn Valley so you know they are good. Great value great food. Get busy in summer, we tend to go in the off season.
