Do you want to catch up with some old friends or colleagues over a nice meal? Continue reading to learn about 10 of the best restaurants in Livonia, Michigan.
1. Alloush Grill
Alloush Grill is a large part of Livonia’s thriving Lebanese and Mediterranean community. They’re well-known for fresh meals made with love, excellent service, and lightning-quick delivery (within five miles). Just a warning, though, to turn off sound before opening their site – there’s a pretty loud jingle that will greet you. Alloush Grill is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Sunday.
Alloush carries all of the best-known Lebanese and Mediterranean meals out there, with a few extras thrown in. Whether you want hummus and pita, dolmas (lamb and rice wrapped in grape leaves), or something more classic like shawarma or gyros, they’ve got you covered at Alloush Grill.
Go to Alloush’s online ordering page to get yourself a taste.
2. Fattoush Village Cafe
Another Lebanese spot in Livonia, Fattoush Village Cafe, takes a gentler, slower approach to its food than Alloush. While they carry a number of the same dishes, they’re cooked over time and served in a more laid-back, relaxing environment. Fattoush Village Cafe is open from 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays, and closed on Sundays.
Fattoush has all of your favorite juicy Lebanese entrees. From the obvious shawarma and gyros to kebabs, gallaba (red meat or seafood with veggies and rice), and shish kafta (lamb, onion, and seasoned veggies with rice), you’re sure to find something mouthwateringly tasty at Fattoush.

Pita Way is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays.
Pita Way’s menus are pretty focused, but it’s for the better. You’ll find the usual pita wraps (shawarma, gyros, tawook, kafta) alongside pita rice bowls, “quesopitas” (a quesadilla made with pita), and little else. For fast-casual, tasty Mediterranean food in a proven setting, stop by Pita Way.

Clearly, you’ll find pizzas galore at Luigi’s, but that’s not all!
