I am the fussiest person ever except when I go here, Dominic loves perfection so you will only get perfection. Yes from the previous unfavorable people, everyone makes mistakes even when you cook, however, Dominic or staff will make it

It's Mothers Day 2011 - just returned from dining at Picano's for dinner. Service was awful - Our waitress forgot to take the order of one person in our party. We waited over an hour for our food, which was mediocre at best. During that

Pros: Setting and Staff

Cons: Quality of Food Average

The best Italian in Detroit! Their baked spaghetti is delicious and highly recommended.

To start your meal, the minestrone soup is outstanding.

You must be patient because it is always busy!

My family made reservations for 9 for Easter Sunday, to avoid having to cook and clean-up. Picano's has not only the reputation for good food, but has been around for years so we figured they would do holiday's right. We ended up with only 8 people in our party and after a relatively short wait (20 minutes), we got seated at a table for 6. I was really surprised that a place like Picano's would stuff people into a room and completely ignore the comfort of their patrons. The hostess told us that they had alot of walk-in customers, though on Holiday's they highly recommend reservations. The woman on the phone when reservations where made said Easter Sunday was reservations only. Different story once we go there. Now, I am not one to say turn away a customer but if a party took the time to reserve a seat then they should be sat first and not have to compromise comfort. The holiday buffet was not cheap and when we went up for food, alot of the trays where empty. We had to wait, sometimes up to a half hour, for food to be brought out. Sorry...if people just walk in, then honor reservations first or turn people away. The food was okay, loved the sausage and peppers, but we won't be back. Service was average at best. During a holiday, I can understand a busy server but considering Picano's is suppose to be a class joint, we were far from impressed.

Cons: Packing people in like sardines.

I learned about Picano's from a college friend of mine. I love Italian food and was delighted to find this fine restaurant. The food is excellently prepared and has wonderful flavor; they even serve a nice complimentary appetizer of beans, olive oil and spices. The waitstaff is professional and courteous. The room is comfortable and has a convivial atmosphere without being noisy.

Picano's is a great place to go for a special evening of fine Italian food and the company of friends.

I love italian food and I have been going to Picanos for many years now. I take my kids, who are older now and they bring their kids now. 12 of us went their for my son's birthday and everything was perfect. Staff was very knowledgable. Our server's name was Farrah and he did a fantastic job. He knew a lot about the wine and he recomended the Veal morel, which was excellent. Always a GREAT place to go for any event.

It's been around for years and it keeps getting better. Since everyone in town is obsessed with every restaurant close to Somerset this gem is usually without a wait on the weekends.

If you are an Italian culinary purist (you annually helped your grandmother make 300 dozen raviolis for the Diocese), this place "smokes" its more well known neighbors in Troy & Auburn Hills at a fraction of the cost. You won't be rubbing shoulders with the rich & famous, but the locals know this is a top shelf restaurant. If you enjoy a great (mostly, unavailable in other famous Italian restaurants) value wine, try the Cesari Amorone with your meal.

This is a great place to eat. If your looking for authentic Italian food, this is your place. I recommend you stop in for lunch and ask for Lisa, she's my favorite waitress. Very prompt, polite and friendly.

This is the best authentic Italian dining in the Metro area. You can not beat the homemade cooking done by the Picano kitchen. The owner will ensure that your dining experience is the best.

Great food, great atmosphere, and downhome
homemade food. Fresh, homemade pasta and sauces, great prices too. You'll never go to a chain Italian restaurant again after trying Picano's.
The owner is allways there and chances are you'll meet him.

I have done service work at this restaurant and since I know the people I decided to try the food and I was extremely impressed. If you are looking for good food, at a reasonable price and a great atmosphere than Picano's is the place for you. Dominic is the perfect host and he is always around making sure things are being done right.

Picano's is the kind of place you love to have in your back pocket when entertaining out-of-town visitors. Consistency is a benchmark at this shrine to Italian cuisine where pollo Siciliano, a dish of paper-thin, sauteed-golden chicken…
