Highest-Rated Italian Restaurants In Detroit By Diners

See if your favorite Italian restaurant is among the top-rated, or find a new spot in your neighborhood.

Italian food is the most popular cuisine in the world, according to a 2023 study by The Picky Eater that tallied up Instagram tags. It’s no wonder why so many people love it. Just thinking about dishes like chicken parmesan and spaghetti and meatballs is enough to get your mouth watering—even though many of these world-famous dishes are actually Italian American creations more so than true Italian fare. Traditional Italian food embraces an assortment of sumptuous recipes that aren’t dependent on fried breadcrumbs and red sauce—think frittatas and focaccia, or carpaccio and panna cotta.

You can find excellent Italian offerings in almost every city from coast to coast. To celebrate all things mozzarella and marinara, Stacker compiled a list of the highest-rated Italian restaurants in Detroit based on diners’ reviews on Yelp as of January 2024.Read on to see if your favorite is among the top-rated, or to find a new spot in your neighborhood in one of our local roundups below.
