“with a menu that's gloriously Italian”

The menu is gloriously Italian, as will be the bocce court in back when it’s finished. Familiar items like pasta, pizza and panini are carried to their heights and joined by inspired charcuterie, side dishes and the featured entrée, porchetta (por-KET-ta). Let’s start there. I don’t usually mix morality and food-calorie-health issues. You won’t catch me calling chocolate “decadent.” But when the porchetta was placed in front of me, the sentence “this is the most sinful thing I’ve ever eaten” involuntarily escaped my soon-to-be-smacking lips. That’s because it’s pork belly wrapped around a pork loin, with its wide bands of way-better-than-bacon fat artfully coiled, and topped with a tangle of dressed arugula for tartness and pink grapefruit to add an acid note. It’s heavenly. Entrées: $10-$16Pizzas: $10-$14Handicap accessibleOpen 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-midnight Friday-Saturday, 11 am.-9 p.m. Sunday

Didn't make it here when I was last in Detroit, but will definitely be making a trip next time I go up. Got a super high rating from 2 friends who like very different types of food. Figure it's got to be delicious!
