    When we think of Italian food, two things come to mind: pizza and pasta. Do not expect to find either of those at La Rondinella, Eastern Market’s newest Italian restaurant. First of all, if you want great pizza, just head next door to Supino’s, which has some of the best pies in town. More importantly, Rondi explores the best parts of real I [...]

    There’s a good reason why Roma Cafe hasn’t changed in nearly 125 years: you don’t mess with perfection. This old school Italian restaurant, located in the heart of Detroit’s Eastern Market, has been operating since 1890.

    • Cards Accepted
    • Free Parking Available

    Eating lunch in a casino was never something that held a spot on our foodie bucket list. Even though The Market District is just a short walk from downtown offices, you’ve probably never thought to check it out, either. It’s only somewhere you’d go if you were staying at the hotel, or need to fuel up in between rounds of black jack. But th [...]

    Vince’s Bakery & Party Store is not just an Italian deli. It is a place where magical things happen to ordinary sandwiches. This family run spot on 8 Mile, just inside the Detroit border, is an overlooked gem. Don’t be confused by its outward appearance; it can feel more like you’re walking into a gas station convenience store than a r [...]

    • Neighborhood: Corktown & Southwest
    • Price Level:   
    • Vegetarian Options
    • Cards Accepted

    Giovanni’s Ristorante is a sparkling gem, hidden in a forgotten corner of Southwest Detroit. The iconic Italian eatery has survived two fires, and stood unflinchingly for more than four decades while the neighborhood crumbled around it. One trip to the restaurant makes it easy to see why: the food is seriously good. The daughter of two Italian i [...]

    • Open for: Lunch, Dinner, Weekends
    • Cards Accepted
    • Free Parking Available

    Stepping inside Vince’s Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria feels a little bit like walking through a time machine. This is because nothing - not the decor nor the menu nor the treat-you-like-family service - has changed in many years. It’s an old school, red sauce Italian joint, where the walls are covered with paintings of quaint Mediterranean vi [...]
