Lelli’s, Auburn Hills MI | Merchant Profile

Nerio and Irene Lelli first established Lelliís Restaurant in 1939 in Detroit, Michigan serving delicious, Italian cuisine. The restaurant quickly became a favorite amongst the community for their great food, drinks, and ambiance. In 1996, Irene and Nerioís son Mike expanded the business and opened a Lelliís in Auburn Hills. Unfortunately in 1999 the original Detroit location burned down, so today the Lelli family continues on their legacy running and operating the Auburn Hills location. Lelliís menu is full of traditional Italian dishes and favorites that are all created using the freshest and finest ingredients. Lelliís is best known for their succulent Filet Mignon that is made from prime dry-aged steak and topped with their original zip sauce that they actually invented in 1939. You can find zip sauce in many other Michigan restaurants, but theyíre all imitations of Lelliís original creation. Another fan favorite is Lelliís Veal Scallopini that can be prepared in a variety of different styles. The rest of the menu consists of appetizers, pastas, and seafood, all of which are delicious and flavorful. Lelliís atmosphere is warm, inviting, and the perfect place to enjoy a family meal or intimate dinner date. The staff is very personable, attentive, and works hard to ensure every customer leaves happy and satisfied.
