Sempre squisito! – Little Italy always delights in so many ways - you'll never be disappointed! We've been fans of the restaurant since they opened in 1988. If you want to experience a quality menu along with great ambiance, don't spend your money at some Italian chain eatery, spend your money at Little Italy.
Love at First Bite – Although I live in Lansing I make the drive to Little Italy quite frequently. I travel to Italy on business about four times a year and in my opinion, Little Italy in Northville is the next best thing. The food is excellent and I have always received great service. I have a passion for Italian wines and the wine list here is one of the best. I highly recommend this quaint little piece of Italy.
Anniversary Dinner – We called for a reservation for a nice little table for 2 for our anniversary. We arrived and were promptly seated in a romantic little nitch - a perfect table for 2. The food was good, very authentic and filling. The dessert was great. The only drawback was the service, which I thought should have been better for the price of the meal. We waited on drink refills and our dishes were not promptly cleared between each course. This wouldn't be enough to keep us away though.
Gets my vote for best operation – I love everything about this place. Reminds me of a little italian village. A fine dining "ristorante" in front, a typical Italian "bar" for more casual drop in dining in the back with an inexpensive menu, an Italian market next door with great carry-out pizza and other foods. These guys have it all! Great food, great service, an excellent wine list. I had them cater a super bowl party for us and they did an excellent job.
Simply The Best – I was born in Italy but grew up in the "Little Italy" section in Windsor, Ontario. There are an abundance of great Italian restaurants in Windsor but none are better than Little Italy in Northville. Real Italian food, great service, an amazing wine list. The Bacchus Bar addition with it's own casual dining room was a stroke of genius. Now they have an Italian deli/pizzeria with simply amazing take away pizzas and prepared food. The owner/chef always seems to be on the premises. Thank You Little Italy!
Absolutely Fantastic – This is the real deal. An Italian restaurant with a soul. Forget about all that fake "Italian" chain junk. These guys have been around a long time and have it going on. A fine dining ristorante in the front, a casual dining bar in the back with an amazing selection of grappa and a great carry-out next door with prepared foods, real paninis, homemade pastas and maybe the best carry-out pizzas around. An unbelievable wine list. But the food, aah the food. Amazing. A chef/owner operated restaurant makes the real difference for me.
Pleasantly Surprised! – Little Italy was recomended to us by some of our friends who had been there...so we made reservations for dinner. I had their Veal Carchofini (sp?), which was probably the best piece of veal I can recall having, and my girlfriend had one of their amazing featured entrees...it was a mixed plate of King Salmon, Scallops, Scampi Tails, and Maine Lobster Meat in a sauce that was rich, but yet light enough that it brought out the richness in the seafood!....then we went to their bar...it had such a comfortable atmosphere, a HUGE selection of spirits, and the manager took us on a tour of their elegant and very impressive wine cellar....this restaurant is one NOT to miss
Bravissimo! – I travel back to Italy every year at least once and this is absolutely the finest effort towards an authentic regional Italian restaurant I have experienced in the Detroit metro area. It doesn't get as much press or attention as other restaurants, but in my opinion, this place is tops. Excellent service from a well trained staff ready to accomodate, food to die for, a great wine list and selection of spirits rivaling the better restaurants in Italy. The owners here understand how to convey the essence of the Italian spirit. Complimenti!
What a great atmosphere – Hubby took me there last night for my bday. Every year I have gnocchi's for my birthday so I found this restaurant through City Search and decided to try it out. Of course, Little Italy was packed and there were no reservations avail. so we ate in the Bar - Bacchus Bar. Service and Atmosphere were outstanding as was the SPIEDINI ALLA MARIA appetizer. The dinners were average but good.
Viva Italia – Jeff and John know Italian!! This fantastic, romantic restaurant has the best Italian around. Each dish is made to order, and is perfect. I am, unfortuantely, allergic to garlic, but they always seem to make the dish so good that it seems like the recipe never called for garlic in the first place. The bread is great, and the wine list is amazing. I recommed the Terrabianca Compaccio. Homemade raviolis are incredible! The eggplant tapanade on the antipasto plate is unequaled, and the frozen, chololate covered gelatto for desert is awesome. The ambience is an eclectic blend of old-world and modern. A winner all the way around!!!
