wI was traveling in the area, and just stopped in for dinner. Service was good and food was excellent. Location was easy to find as it is right on the main street going through Petoskey. Would return again if I was in the area.

This is an Italian restaurant that you can always count on to be good. Great service and very good food. Nice wine list and home made limoncello. Veal dishes are especially good and the baked shrimp is delicious.

I was there with just my wife and didn't consider a large group setting. It'd be best to simply call them and ask. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful
