Went here while in business in Novi, staying nearby. Wanted an easy, walking-distance restaurant, and was not expecting excellence. Maisano's was great. The food and wine were good, the service was great (Stephanie), and the atmosphere was relaxing. Would definitely recommend it to other people...More

We decided to give Maisano's another try after one good experience and one not so good experience. The food (lasagna, veal parmigiana, chicken piccata, beef tips, onion soup, Caesar salad, plus others) was exceptionally good. The veal parmigiana was the only dish that wasn't thoroughly...More

I had never heard of Maisano's before but I went because it had a 4.5 review. It's placed inside of a small shopping plaza, which was different for me but it rests on the corner. There was no official hostess but we were politely greeted...More

We had the best Italian food here, authentic and very generous portions, had lots to carry home. The entrees include soup, or salad, and a wonderful bread basket with different baked goods. The desserts looked wonderful but we are always too full to try them....More

They do have tables and booths. Although it is tight in there I'm sure they could move some things around to accommodate.
