Buon Appetito Italian Cuisine, Romeo, MI

Buon Appetito Italian Cuisine in Little Italy of Romeo is serving up the finest of Italian favorites. Enjoy the classic flavors of the boot-shaped country with a friendly, family-style atmosphere. Treat yourself to some great Italian food that will leave your taste buds thanking you.

Villa D' Alessandro, Midland, MI

Head on out to Midland to check out Villa D' Alessandro, an Italian restaurant operating there for over 30 years. That kind of longevity speaks well of any restaurant, especially one in a comparatively cosmopolitan area like Midland. Throw in the fact that a good chunk of Villa D' Alessandro's food—including meats, cheeses and wines—are directly imported from Italy itself, and it grows much of its own produce in its own gardens, that adds up to an experience you can't readily beat.

Bacco Ristorante, Southfield, MI

Southfield's Bacco Ristorante has won its share of awards, and when looking closely at it, you'll see just why it's won those awards. Start with an excellent wine list, and follow it up with hand-rolled pasta. Now that's the kind of thing that will make you look twice. When you take your third look, however, focus on the menu itself; check out authentic dishes like pappardelle and tagliatelle to realize you're dealing with a real winner.

Paesano Restaurant & Wine Bar, Ann Arbor, MI

Ann Arbor's Paesano restaurant takes Italian food seriously. How seriously? Seriously enough to offer three different levels of Italian language classes, that's how seriously. A complete wine list, a gluten-free menu, and dishes ranging from the Bucatini Rustichella to the Pork Arista with Dried Fig Au Jus, all come together to make Paesano a thoroughly formidable Italian dining venture.
