I ate there twice while working in Petoskey. The food is more spicy then in Tuscany itself but still really good!

This is a very small little bistro with an "open" kitchen providing an intimate atmosphere. The service was great and the menu was excellent.

Wonderful menu. Scallops, Flank Steak, and veggie options. The wine selection was good and reasonably priced. The po du cream was awesome.

My husband and I love this place. It's healthy. Fresh and up to date with trends. We particularly enjoy setting at the bar to watch the chefs do their thing. It is like watching a ballet. They just flow along not stressed. Must do!!!!

We just happened to stumble upon this place and was very very impressed! First of all, we arrived late and left 15 minutes after closing and they were very pleasant in spite of this. Then for the good part. From beginning to end the food and service was impeccable. The greek salad was unbelievable. Then the parmesan crusted creme brulee... More

We stopped in for a drink mid-afternoon on a slow day. While the drinks were fine, the service and overall attitude of the staff was less than friendly. We watched two couples come and go because they were not welcomed or offered a table for dinner because it wasn't the dinner hour. The food may be fine, but I wouldn't... More

We had a fine dinner at Twisted Olive a few days ago. Our white fish was well-prepared and plentiful. The location is in town and near the water with a nice view. The restaurant is small and service was very good.
