DW and I took our daughter here the other day for her birthday. Have dined here 5-6 times in the past and always enjoyed it. Started with 3 appetizers that were are very good especially the generous portion of mussels in wine sauce. DW and daughter got 1/2 portions (a good feature). I got a seafood pasta dish that was as good as it gets. Service was spot on.
Appitizers were $9-12. My full entre about $19. Very reasonable considering the quality.
The owner/chef also teaches cooking courses at the local community college and is one of the most respected chefs in Northern Michigan.

The food is exceptional and reasonably priced. The best thing about this restaurant is that they have menu pricing for half portions! Without a doubt, the BEST italian food in Traverse City!

We had an Up North Live coupon for this, and we love those because they take us to different restaurants and attractions. From the minute we stepped in the door, we were treated like royalty. Wait staff was friendly, courteous, efficient. The food was very good. We liked that the half plates were available at dinner time. That way, we could indulge in the bread pudding! It's much closer to TVC than we originally thought, but lots of parking, nice atmosphere, lots of windows.

I know there are lots of options for good food in the TC area, but this is a place that the locals frequent and that should speak volumes!

Fresh everything. Great service and atmosphere . The Ahi tuna is very good also. Micki's (owner/chef) sauce's are want really makes his dishes. The setting is quint, not a huge restaurant which makes it very nice. The interior has a feel of the North End in Boston as well as the food. It is a must when in TC. After dinner walk thru the tunnel under M22 and walk the docks to see all the beautiful boats.
