Foursquare Tips

  • Excellent pizza's. Just the perfect size for two people and ingredients that are fresh and tasty.
  • The best Italian food on Lake Michigan's Shore.
  • Salads and paata
  • Happy hour is 5-7. Half price on house wines. Try the grilled romaine salad. It is very good.
  • Wonderful atmosphere .. Delish bread, appetizer: 3 min truffled eggs and wonderful butternut squash ravioli; we'll be back!!!
  • Butternut squash ravioli was excellent
  • The service was already poor, but the consistency of Chef Zach's kitchen saved this place.... Too bad he left because the owner's biggest concern is getting rich, not putting out great food... :(
  • Terrible food. Slow inattentive service Stay away.
  • Try the $20 bottle of wine and Bruschetta special on Thursdays.
  • Get their calamari! It's so light and tasty you don't need any dipping sauce.
  • Try the bruschetta, expensive but delicious!
  • Sit at the bar to watch the kitchen in action.
  • Service is unpolished but earnest. Have patience and be kind. Food is great. The beet salad and the Ceasar salad is wonderful . Atmosphere and music is lovely.:-)
