Friendly, and helpful waitstaff. Relaxed yet jovial atmosphere. Food quality has been excellent every time we have been there. Every dish is my new favorite. There is plenty of food. I always take part home. Love the starter bread and dipping oils. Excellent wine choices. Very affordable prices.

The first time we had eaten there, didn't know what to expect. The waitress was good and the food was great. I had steak very tender and more than I could eat. My husband had liver and onions he said it was very tender. They gave us a dessert since it was our anniversary. Will go again.

Some of the BEST ITALIAN in Mid Michigan. The appetizer was a house specialty called Tuscan Chicken Spread but was more like a meal. She enjoyed the Chicken Marsala and I savored the Veal Parmesan. Needless to say we took home leftovers. If you are looking for a nice place to eat in Mid Michigan look no further.

This restaurant serves really good Italian dishes, plus non-Italian food also. Service is great and the place is clean and well decorated. One of my favorite dishes is the Chicken Marsala and they have good appetizers...

You would never expect a great marinara sauce in St. Louis, MI. But I pleasantly surprised by the veal parmesan with and excellent marinara sauce. Everyone loved their meals to include the liver and onions.

This is a nice restaurant with a lot of Italian dishes, including daily specials. There is also a good sized wine menu. I had a seafood (shrimp and scallops) tortellini which was a large bowl, enough for at least two meals. We were served quickly and the wait staff was attentive. I would go back to this restaurant again.

Summary: This is a good place to get an Italian meal. The food is quite tasty, the service is very good and the atmosphere is nice enough. The prices are quite reasonable making this place an excellent deal. Details: We were in town on personal business and wanted to find a place for lunch. I took a look on TripAdvisor... More
