This gem is tough to find, but make that effort, the reward is worth it. So glad we walked down the long hall and entered a fragrant-with-wonderful-food-smells bistro. Ushered to our choice of a window table, Brian (Bryan?) began to pamper us with his friendly professionalism. My husband enjoyed his Manhattan as I sipped my glass of wine, a soft... More

Best steak I've had in Dearborn in a very long time! Romantic, cozy atmosphere and great wine too! Everything is made fresh, in-house.

Looking for a quiet, out of the ordinary spot? You'll find it at Osteria 222! Its in an usual location ( back entrance of a tucked away street shopping front ), but don't let the back entrance fool you. This delightful Italian bistro is a great spot for a quick bite or an intimate dinner or two. Not a place... More

We had a group of 8 on Saturday night. Our waiter Brian, was great from start to finish. He explained how everything is made in house. Nothing frozen ever all fresh all the time. We all ordered something different and all apps and entrees were very, very good. Brian paid attention to our table and knew when to approach us.... More

Classic French style bistro wit great food and wine pairing. You enter from rear, which can be little confusing, but there is a lot of free public parking located there. The setting is calm and romantic feeling.

Stumbled upon this place after a visit to The Henry Ford Museum. Found it to be excellent. Calamari prepared professionally with a wonderful spicy tomato sauce. A crispy-chewy crust Neopolitan style pizza and delicious house made papardelle with sausage and a tomato cream sauce. Very nice atmosphere, proper and friendly service and outstanding food made for a suprising and satisfying... More

I have reviewed this restaurant before (then known as Bistro 222). Most of my opinions are the same - great food, great service, still hard to find. Shortly after our first visit the chef died suddenly and the restaurant closed temporarily. It has now reopened under it's current name. The food is exceptionally good - creative takes on "non-red" Italian.... More
