I had a reservation and they sat me in the back by the kitchen and bathroom under a dripping AC unit. Asked to be moved. They put me two tables away right by the kitchen door. Our waitress was very nice. Overpriced food.

Our server was great and played along with our sense of humor. We rarely get out :) Her recommendations were spot on and we never felt rushed through dinner. We will be back again.

The hostess staff needs to be trained on customer etiquette. Despite making an advance reservation, we were seated at the worst table in the house next to the stairway to the basement level! We asked to be moved upstairs and were told only walk-ins are seated there. Food was comparable to other Italian restaurants. Servers were polite/attentive. As for a recommendation, I give it a maybe--not sure I will go back.

It was quiet because we were sitting where there was a lower ceiling near the restroom. Very pleasant though. Wonderful food and great service from Brianna. All in all, a lovely evening.

Beyond the market that will dazzle your eyes is a restaurant that will dazzle your pallete. Cantoro's Italian fare at the location in Plymouth Twp. on Haggerty Rd. is the best in the area. The sevice is generally very good if not excellent and the setting, while undergoing construction outdoors, is exciting but you can still have a conversation with your friends at your table. They open an upper level for dinner on weekends and they are re-working their outdoor seating. The original outdoor seating was magical and changing it to accomodate more people for all seaons is understandable from a business perspective but lamentable for those who were lucky enough to experience it. Portions are very generous to the point where ordering dishes to share will leave no one hungry. The only setback are that the main floor dining area can be too small on busy days when the upstairs is not open, and reservations can be poorly managed.

I think the olive oil for dipping could be improved. It is too deep to get much balsamic vinegar, maybe less oil and parmesan. The bread isn't particularly good. It is crusty and chewy which is a must.

Love everything about this place, except it does get very noisy. It’s always busy, so that’s a factor with the noise level as well. Food is always excellent and we’ve never had bad service.

My husband and I along with another couple celebrate our wedding anniversaries every single year and decided to try Cantoro Trattoria in Plymouth.

We all agreed that the restaurant has a lot of character and served amazing food!

The four of us ordered six appetizers to share and also order individual meals (mostly to go) and everything ordered was delicious. The table favorite were the Risotto Balls and the Focaccia.

Definitely a place I will be trying again soon.

Food was good. Waiter was cordial. Very loud. We got stuck at a lousy table in the corner near construction staring at half finished drywall and an exit door. Don't know if I would go back or recommend.

One of the guests in my party had a meal where her pasta was not done. The manager was kind enough to offer another meal. She refused as she was full from the yummy appetizers so he took the meal off her bill. We couldn’t ask for better service!

Service was just ok. We asked for our meal to wrapped to go and turns out only one of meals was sent home. Very disappointed as we had essentially a full meal that wasn't sent with us. It was a fairly loud restaurant to begin with, but the two tables next to us were obnoxious talking back and forth. The "gentleman" next to us was particularly loud, trying to impress the waitress and his wife with several questions and menu suggestions and basically ruined the evening. We will not be going back as the food wasn't at a level to justify the negative experience.
