We had old friends staying with us in Glen Arbor again this summer and they loved La Becasse other times we have taken them. This was no different. In fact it was even better. We had a great meal, excellent wine, and saved enough room for desert. We are happy to have La Becasse close by and especially happy they are open year round. Keep up the good work! More
