Great hospitality! We were greeted by one of the owners, who spent time chatting with us, and was very pleasant. The food was quite delicious. Unfortunately, we had to wait a very long time for our meals, because they had two private events and a very small kitchen.

I went with my family and we all split and shared the bruschetta and we really enjoyed it we got 2 rounds. The garlic cheese bread and marinara sauce was tasty too, the sauce could have had less lumpy tomatoes in it for me, but was still good. I had a house salad, balsamic was a bit runny, but still...

We visited Comensoli's with a bit of trepidation because of some reviews. But our B & B hosts strongly recommended it and it was within walking distance on a lovely evening, so we took a chance. Service was professional and friendly. Food was very good, with some innovative options on the menu. If we lived in Kalamazoo this might be... More

The restaurant sits within a small triangle of railroad tracks and streets with limited parking. The outside patio is clean and fairly equal to the size of the indoor portion of the restaurant. The food was "Just Okay" and the service was invisible during our visit. The bar is very small with just a few bar stools. Look at your... More

We keep going back. Consistently good food, genuinely nice staff and quiet atmosphere. Relaxing place to enjoy a tasty meal. Healthy choices if you're watching what you eat along with carb loaded pasta dishes to satisfy the cravings. We'll be back

Romantic (but not stuffy) atmosphere. Original Italian recipes, perfectly prepared. Great service (although the kitchen was swamped). My sautéed squid over greens was delicious. Ditto re. my wife's pasta carbonara. We'll return!

Was looking for something off the beaten path and found this place. Quiet Monday night dinner with about 4-5 tables of patrons. Service was very friendly. Side salad was tasty, as was my pasta dish with sausage, peppers, onions, and ziti. Wine is reasonably priced.

We visit Kalamazoo occasionally, and are so glad that this place was recommended to us. This is not your typical pizza/spaghetti joint. This is a great little restaurant with a chef who puts together some fantastic meals. My best advice is to avoid busy times and plan to spend some quality time with good friends. Order from the special menu,... More
