Nonna’s Ristorante

Simple. Unpretentious. Good.

That's the motto at Nonna's, our flagship restaurant.  It's a rustic but romantic environment, and the food matches the decor - Executive Chef John Piombo focuses on simple updates to Italian classics.   Each of his twists on these familiar dishes is designed to highlight our spectacular local produce and the best artisanal products made by local vendors.  It'll be nearby while you're here in Leelanau.  You'll wish it was once you're home.

Rustic elegance, reminiscent of a classical Italian trattoria. Please note that children are not permitted to dine in the tavern, though we are happy to seat families on our picturesque porch and seasonal outdoor deck.
