Old world style, kind of 1950s with formal waiters, but they cook in house and have great food, great steaks veal and fish. Pasta is home made

Ordered their veal steak with Lelli's zip-sauce. Great choice with such tender meat and so good taste. Great staff supported questions and wonderings. With over 75 years in the Detroit area this restaurant delivers - great.

We came here after my son's college graduation ceremony which was right around the corner. I have gone to Lellies since I was a kid - mostly the original one on Woodward. But as far as I'm concerned it's such a treat and it's always consistent quality. I don't eat red meat so I got the chicken - everybody else... More

This place is everything you would expect from a 5 star restaurant. Great food, great atmosphere, excellent service. Wait-staff is outstanding and attentive, chef prepared my steak perfectly as ordered. Good wine list. Will definitely be back.

This is a great place to treat someone for a special occasion or even a surprise for someone you love. This place is pretty expensive but not a every day place. The Steaks are great ask for medium it's what the chef recommend.

Filet was the best! We could have done without the rest. Salad was good, but the soup and pasta were non-descript. The service, however, was superb!

Wonderful menu, but be forewarned, if you don't order ala carte, you will be taking food home with you! The full course includes an antipasto tray, soup, salad and two sides! Most people in our group could not finish it all. I ordered the assortment of 4 appetizers and it was just about right for a meal. Drinks are "man-sized."... More

Lelli's is such a treat! The minestrone soup is one of a kind, as is all of their wonderful authentic Italian recipes. Make sure you try a steak with the zip sauce and for dessert try the homemade chocolate ice cream.
