Prices were good but the choices were very plain and limited to lasagna and Mac and cheese type dishes. I had jalapeno Mac and cheese. It was OK but a bit on the dry side. They did have good prices on their wine

The atmosphere in this "old house turned into a restaurant" is charming with tables in out-of-way spaces that offer privacy along with larger spaces for whole groups to gather.

This is a restaurant that serves wonderful Italian food. The building is an older house on the edge of an older neighborhood in Big Rapids, which gives it a wonderful informal atmosphere and "at home" feeling. The waiters provide excellent service with a delightful personal twist. The food and wine are excellent. Great little restaurant for an informal get-away or... More

One out of town guest, a teenager said their pizza was the best she ever ate! I think she's eaten a lot of pizza. Quite a complement.

We were in town visiting our son at nearby FSU and looking for a good place to give him a break from cafeteria food. We had a delicious lunch - we had 3 different pasta dishes and all were very good. The salads and garlic knots were also tasty. The server was friendly, offering her suggestions on personal and customer... More

Yummy and an unexpected surprise. I was impressed with quality of the food and garlic knots! No pricey at all as I live in the Grand Traverse region which is filled with touristy places.
