Excellent Italian fare right next to Universtiy of Notre Dame! The Rustica was fabulous as well as the Bruschetta appetizer. Service was friendly, they took a reservation in advance and parking was readily available. The only downside is that it's loud (echo-like) so if anyone in your group is older (i.e. hard of hearing) this would be a challenge for... More

I wanted to try this restaurant after seeing commercials on TV boasting a new menu. I tried the spaghetti carbonara and my friend had the lasagna and another got the lemon chicken. Everything is a la carte so you don't get anything other than the meal, so I find it expensive. There was no bread or salad, and no vegetable... More

In search of some Italian food in South Bend, friends suggested Parisi's. Spoiled by our NYC background, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meal. We sampled chicken dishes, pasta, pizza and eggplant and wee were all happy with our plates. The place seemed quite popular with locals too The only reason I did not rate it a... More

We got the Ribeye Steak and the Chicken Marsala, and they were both excellent! Even though they had to feed almost 50 of us nearly-simultaneously, the staff did a wonderful job of cooking and delivering the food! The steak was tender and flavorful, and the chicken was tasty and moist. Because it was an event, I was surprised at the... More

Let's start with the service. Upon arrival we noticed that ALL of the water glasses at our table had soap spots all over them. I asked for a clean glass which I received - no big deal. On to ordering our wine. My husband and I took time to look over the wine menu and ordered - to find out... More

Parisi's offers the best Italian fare in the South Bend area--their menu is diverse, full of Italian classics (lasagna, linguine and clams) and specials. Their Pesce Livornese is brilliant--my fish was perfectly cooked, melting in your mouth, dressed with a tangy pinot grigio sauce--perfect with olives and capers! I couldn't have been more pleased--others at our table had the Rustica,... More

For 20 years we have passed this Resterant and have wanted to stop there. I can now say I have squandered 20 years of great Italian food away by not going there sooner! My favorite Italian Resterant to boot! Going back soon and plan on making this a once to twice a month stop with the family for sure! Cheers
