About Us

“What are you growing here?”  This is the first line in Frances Mayes’ celebrated book, Under the Tuscan Sun.  What have local Midland residents Joe (Giuseppe) and Melinda D’Alessandro been growing?  They have nurtured and grown a business, a popular pizzeria for the last 20 years.  This has matured into a gourmet Italian restaurant, located on Wackerly Road, complete with the largest Italian wine list north of Detroit!
