We ate there on June 16. It is not an elegant restaurant with not a lot of seating. One of the things we really liked was that they had a separate menu for smaller portions. The lasagne and spaghetti were excellent and the tiramisu was some of the best we have had. We plan on returning.

Spaghetti Jim's has wonderful fresh made pasta and homemade sauces! Currently a very small but quaint venue (they are planning to expand) with just a few tables but they also offer take out of any of their dishes or you can purchase your choice of the fresh pasta and your choice of sauce in separate containers and put it together at home (or freeze it for later). Pricing is so very reasonable. Our delicous pasta filled our plates and included a small salad and bread. We had to take some home. I think it was $10 or less. They have daily specials, too. The owners and Staff are so friendly; they make you feel like family. We love this place! We hope others discover Spaghetti Jim's so they are here a long time!

If you want excellent food, good service for a great price look no further than Spaghetti Jim's. Always great food, reasonably priced. The atmosphere is friendly, with good service. I have been there several time and never disappointed, and I always go home with left overs for lunch.

We were looking for Italian food and found this place on-line. Though we nearly drove by it twice before we actually "found" it, we were very glad we did! It was closing time when we arrived yet they welcomed our group of five in and told us they were glad we came! The couple who own this are also the chef/cook and everything is home made.The food was amazing...all homemade pasta and very generous servings of it, very attentive service with the very friendly staff and owners. I think this place is one of the best kept secrets of Traverse City and would love to see these folks expand into a larger more obvious storefront. We will definitely visit this establishment again when we are in the area! The food is the best!

We read about this quaint little place on our last visit in Feb that had excellent reviews. I had the spring mushroom risotto that seemed impossible to finish, and it was so delicious I kept trying! My husband tried the carbonara that was equally delicious and also a very large portion. Both $9, including a salad and garlic bread. WOW-you cannot beat this deal. We were informed they will be expanding their dining area next door, but honestly we enjoyed our table right next to the kitchen and the conversation with the chef as he prepared our fresh dinners. We took a piece of the home made tiramisu back to our room for dessert and it only lasted as a few bites, save room for this!! Remember they have take out too if you want a simply delicious home made dinner, which we plan on taking advantage of!
