- Food & Dining
Lelli’s was established by Nerio and Irene Lelli in 1939 and has been serving authentic Northern Italian cuisine, made with only the finest ingredients ever since. Lelli’s first location on Woodward Avenue near W. Grand Blvd. quickly became a Detroit favorite. The family business was expanded in 1996 when son Mike Lelli opened a second location in Auburn Hills on Opdyke Rd. The Auburn Hills location is still owned and operated by Nerio and Irene Lelli’s children and grand-children.
