Always a delightful experience for someone who loves authentic Italian cuisine. Serve the same high quality products in the restaurant that are available in the adjoining market. We share many courses because the portion size is very very generous.

Try the penne with vodka pink sauce and you will see what I mean about authentic Italian. Also note that their menu explains all of the ingredients in their recipes which is very unusual but also very helpful if you are into Italian cooking.

I miss the outdoor seating area. That was a nice summer go-to place. I understand it will be a 4-season room when construction is completed. But it won't be truly al fresco any more.

We go here several times a year. We almost always split a salad and the tagliatelle with bolognese, which is the best in SE Michigan.

The linguine with clam sauce was excellent. That’s it. The pasta with meat sauce looked and tasted like dog food. The atmosphere is noisy and congested (like you’re eating in a high school cafeteria. The prices are high and meals don’t some with a salad. The waiter we had was snobby and acted like we were peasants because I asked if they had lasagna. There a lot of Italian restaurants. Go somewhere else.

Big pours and great wine prices. Thanks for the Duckhorn Cab for $13/glass. I would say it was at least 6 fl. oz.
My brother and sister-in-law have lived in Ann Arbor for over 50 years and we get there at least once a year. You are their favorite restaurant in Ann Arbor and don't argue with them, they are correct. We come back to Ann Arbor in 2 weeks. See you then.

Made reservation and still wound up right in front of bathrooms. Terrible seating plan. Basement and upstairs rarely used instead they shove too many tables in Amin section. People walking all around you bumping into you servers can’t get to you. Food still good service was very good Continue to go back just wish it was laid out better.

We met friends for dinner. The service was good; however, I placed a separate to-go order. The order was not correct. 30 Minutes after I left and called, I spoke with a manager and explained what happened. He agreed that I could return to get the sauce. Upon returning nearly 30 minutes later, one hour after we first left, I saw the server, Briana. While she was very nice, the initial response wasn’t an apology, it was a reiteration of my order and the fact that she thought I was ok with the sauce that came with the dish, despite my earlier inquiry about dishes with white sauces and requesting the Alfred sauce when I placed the order.

The manager with whom I spoke had indeed left a bag with the Alfredo sauce in it with the bartender. In the end, they did not provide any service recovery. There was not an offer for a dessert, or a glass of wine, or a discount on my next visit, etc. the food portions are great. It’s a very noisy ambiance. The food tastes good, but service recovery is quite poor!

My wife and I went there for her birthday. Neither of us had ever been there before. It's an interesting restaurant attached to a grocery store. It's quite a nice restaurant inside, and there were many customers there, so many people must know how great their food is. My wife and I loved the food we got. We got a cheese sampler for an appetizer. I got a Veal Marsala (I've forgotten its actual name, but it was veal, in a Marsala "sauce" with mushrooms) that had spinach on the side. I've forgotten what my wife got, but she said it was very delicious. Mine was very delicious too. The only downside is the price. It was $81 before the tip for the two of us. The chardonnay my wife had was $9, and I had a water. Nonetheless, for a special occasion, I do recommend the restaurant. The food was outstanding.

Got the cheese board and the squid ink pasta. Both were absolutely delicious. Only minor complaint would be that where we were sitting the light that would shine in our direction was out, so it was kind of dark.
