Visiting april 13th. Looking for Italian.
I've been to Bistro Bella Vita numerous times and it's always been wonderful. It's not new, but it's right downtown:
Bistro Bella Vita
44 Grandville Ave. SW
Grand Rapids, MI
Here's another place downtown, but I haven't been there, just found its info on the internet:
120 Monroe Center NW
Grand Rapids, MI 49503
Another Italian place I haven't been to is out near the airport:
6600 28th St. SE
Grand Rapids, MI 49546
Again, though, if you've never been to Bistro Bella Vita (or even if you've already been there), that's where I would head first.
Tuscan Express is gone. Notos and Tre Cugini are pretty pricey. We've been going to Florentine on Kalamazoo just north of 44th street and have had some good meals. Nothing fancy but the price is right. Try the "tour of italy" w/ lasagna, cheese manicotti and spinach ravioli. *mmmmmmmmmmm*
