La Bistecca has a wonderful selection of grilled meats, steak and chops all done Italian style! If you're a veal eater they also do veal many ways. Nice place, good service and fair prices!

This was our first time to La Bistecca, arriving about 9pm on a Saturday night. We had not really planned on stopping so we were dressed quite casually for the restaurant.

Service was a bit slow considering that the dining room was about half full. However this was probably more a matter of promoting a relaxed atmosphere rather than poor service.

The food was very good. We had the Sei Formaggi as an appitizer and it was plenty for two people. The salads were fine, nothing special. The entrees were outstanding, the gnocchi with lump crab meat and the tenderloin tips with pasta.

Very extensive wine list. The cabernet section must have had 50 choices, ranging from $30 to $100+.

Overall an excellent experience.

Me, my wife and youngest daughter went to this place for dinner. It was excellent. Service is great, you can feel that everybody cares... During the evening one of the owners, Jerrry, stopped by and we had a very pleasant chat with him. I have mentioned to him that we were there to celebrate my birthday - when desert time came a 'Happy Birthday' logo was inscribed with chocolate on my plate !!
Food is very good. Another important detail - this place is not in a very hot location, but you can immediately understand that all the patrons visit it on a regular basis. I highly recommend this place to everybody.

Excellent food, great service. The staff is friendly and conversational. Will go out of their way to do something special if requested. The piano bar is a great place to relax and enjoy the entertainment.

My boyfriend took me here for my birthday. I had been once before. The bread and oil were delicious. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was really tasty. His 10oz. steak was excellent. My sea bass lacked flavor and I didn't finish it. Our server, Dale, waited too long between visits to our table. We waited a long time for our food to come out. My first visit there was much better. Heather was my waitress and was very quick, the chicken dish I had was remarkable. However, the second visit did not meet up to my former expectations. I would still go again even though our service was slow, to try some other organic choices on the menu.

My husband (who is from Italy) and I decided to dine in after hearing it so highly recommended by a few business partners of his. We were much less than impressed. While the steak was good, we've had better elsewhere at a fraction of the price!! Also how they claim to be an "Italian" Restaurant is beyond us. Nothing about it is Italian!! From the outside appearance, the decor inside, the lighting, and the ambiance. We have dined in Italy at the "real deal" Italian Inns during visits to his hometown, and have spent much less money!! The service was decent. Definitely a far cry from the "impeccable' they boast about. Overall we were less than impressed and the prices are ridiculous. FYI-- they ARE NOT the ONLY restaurant in Michigan (or the country for that matter) to prepare and serve Piedmontese beef !!!!! Nice try LaBistecca, better luck next time.. We say save your money, Olive Garden offers a better "Italian" experience.

Pros: Friendly valet attendants

Cons: Extremely overpriced, dirty parking lot, not the only Piedmontese" restaurant.

It doesn't get any better than this! I After visiting almost all of the fine Italian restaurants throughout the Detroit Metro Area., I said to myself "Why I haven't been here sooner? "
The calamari, veal and steaks were outstanding. The chef and Jerry were mingling throughout the estabilishment, atttending to all of the guests. They invited suggessions of our favorite dish for preparation on a future visit! As recommended by several friends to dine here, Jerry Constanza and his staff exceeded our expectations.

After years of enjoying the fine food and service at La Bistecca, I have to wonder what happened. All of the familiar faces are gone. They seem to have had a huge turnover in staff. The food is still pretty good, the prices are extremely high and the service is mediocre. Something is wrong.

Uses free range meats. It was such a good restaurant. Reservations are recommended, although they managed to get us in without one.

Darn good steak. I don't buy into the "only restaurant serving piemontese hype" but the steaks are good. There are just as good steaks to be found elsewhere at a more realistic price. An attractive looking place but it is not really an Italian restaurant. When was the last time this chef dined in Italy? In Italy, restaurants in this price range are absolutely incredible. Overall this is just O.K. Look elsewhere for a truly Italian dining experience.

The best Filets anywhere. The Piedmontese beef is awesome. The service is great too!! Was there with a group of 12. Service was unobtrusive and professional. Very comfortable setting. Beautiful decor.

What a truly enjoyable dining experience. From start to finish, everything was first class. The Valet was friendly. The host was very cordial and accomodating. The server was efficient, knowledgeable and polite. The bus boy was attentive. The restaurant is beautiful and the food was fantastic. The best meal I have ever had outside of Mammas cooking. To top it off the entertainment was great too!
I have been back 3 times now and it is very consistent.

I really liked La Bistecca and would recommend it. It is pricey but worth every penny. The service was worth the cost alone- but the steak is extremely tasty.

Wonderful place! My wife and I really enjoyed the atmosphere and thought the service was spectacular. Most important- you must try the steak. It really is tasty. Well worth the visit. I strongly recommend reservations- we tried to walk in and waited for awhile.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere here and the food was exellent. I think the critics of this place must criticize all restaurants or have hit the place on an off night. We also thought the service was top notch. I would recommend this place to anyone (except children).

Fabulous restaurant! Even though I wasn't in the mood for steak, the server said that if it was my first time there, that the filet was a "must". She was right! Most delicious tender steak I've ever eaten! Try the portabello mushroom appetizer. Great place to go for a quiet romantic evening.

My wife and I had a wonderful time at this place. The food was spectacular and the service was excellent. It is a family run place that really cares about the customer. If you do ever have a problem just ask for the owner (if he hasn't come by the table already!) We were very pleased.

My girlfriends and I had a great time at this place. We hung out in the piano bar for a few hours before dinner and listened to live music- which is a great atmosphere. The dinner was wonderful and we couldn't say enough about our service. I would recommend trying this place (you'll need reservations if its a Fri or Sat). We were very pleased and intend to go back often.

The food is outstanding at this cozy, italian restaurant. It is a real find and well worth the money! The atmosphere was very friendly- we loved the service. Highly recommend trying this place out - it is very romantic. La Bistecca also has a piano bar with live entertainment making it a great place to gather with friends. You have to try the desserts!

I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The atmosphere is warm, inviting and romantic. The food is amazing. If you like steak I highly recommend the filet. It is a unique find -- different from the corporate restaurant atmosphere. The owner is always present and ready to ensure that every customer is completely satisfied. The service was the best we have ever had.

I'm sorry but this is not the only restaurant in Michigan to serve piedmontese beef. My steak was way over cooked and my waitress did not even care, offering only a feeble apology. Thanks but No thanks. I was very embarrassed in front of my out of town clients after I had told them this was a highly reccomended place

The service and steak here is the best I've had in Michigan. I am very picky about my steak and they always get it right the first time. The service staff is also excellent. I never had to ask for something that was obvious. They kept close tabs on the progress of the dinner without being intrusive.

I found the steaks here good but very expensive. They told me that they were the only restaurant in the country serving exclusively piedmont beef. I find this hard to believe. The service was very good but the rest of my experience was average. I have had better steaks elsewhere.

Way over rated is the best description. Based on the reviews posted here, They must be from employee's working at La Bisteca. Food is over priced and seems to be just ingredients thrown together.

I moved here from San Francisco and imagine my disappointment when I looked upon this unimpressive little suburban restaurant that we were supposed to go to for my birthday. But inside! The best steak I think I have ever eaten (Piedmontese New York Steak).
I've had it half a dozen times since!
Good place for a romantic dinner and I take business clients here too.
Add the fact that it has a (separate) cigar-friendly bar and you have the best steak place in the area!

Piedmontese beef is the specialty at this urban steakhouse in an out-of-the-way setting where the suburbs of Livonia and Plymouth intersect. The plush interior and well-dressed staff is a surprise as are the linen-lavished tables, fresh…
