Traveling from Arkansas to Michigan, Sandra D's is a must stop for us. The Wild Mushroom & Spinach Lasagna was great, as are all the dishes. The bread sticks and the Tiramisu, both home made, are fabulous! We have been stopping here for some 10-12...More

It is always a pleasure serving you. Sorry I missed you! Hope all is well with you and we are keeping busy with granddaughters living with us and running the business! Take care and hope I see you next visit!

Had lasagna which looked rather small in portion but was too full to try dessert. House dressing delicious (raspberry) on house salad. Was crowded so service not as attentive as it could have been. Reason for four stars instead of five.

This is a small locally owned Italian resturant in Auburn. All the food is created and prepared by the Chef/owner. It is not uncommon for him to come to your table and serve the food. Sandra, Bently's wife is a very nice person and will...More

There was nothing objectionable about the food nor the service. It was a nice relaxed lunch and a good value. The portion sizes were just right.

I love their salad's for lunch. I almost boycotted this restaurant. My husband and I went there for dinner. We were seated and totally ignored for 15 minutes. Everyone walked by us as if we didn't exist. We got up and left, ate somewhere else.

One chef cooks for all in this quaint, classic restaurant. Excellent food and service. Small seating area, make reservations.

Small, so reservations a must. I left a V/M and they call back to work with us on the time. A gem in small town Indiana. Husband and wife team that are very creative. Don't miss this place.
