At Nonna Lisa's, we specialize in pastas & wood-fired pizza. We pride ourselves on letting you create a speciality that fits your taste from our fresh ingredients. You will find the perfect compliment to your meal on our wine list.

Our Location

Nonna Lisa's is located in the Mackinac Bay Trading Co. Shopping Center in downtown Mackinaw City, the former location of Traverse Bay Woolen. We have adapted the decor of the restaurant to flow seemlessly into the rustic style of the building's already existing beauty. All the tables and chairs are crafted by hand from natural hardwoods and accented with beautiful juniper branches. Our bar, custom fashioned in the same style, has quickly become a spot that those traveling in the Mackinaw City area frequent for its northern appeal and variety. We also have a full service espresso bar and classic italian flavored sodas.
