Susan Selasky Detroit Free Press Published 11:01 p.m. UTC Jul 24, 2018 Cantoro Italian Trattoria in Troy will celebrate its grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 2 p.m. Wednesday. Located at 1695 E. Big Beaver Road, the restaurant is behind the San Marino Club in the space formerly occupied by Tre Monti. It opened in June for dinner only and began serving lunch (11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday) earlier this month. Happy hour is 3-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and includes half-off select gourmet pizzas, appetizers and select beer and wine. The new Cantoro is also accepting bookings for private parties. After the ribbon-cutting, guests can tour the newly designed restaurant and grounds, including an 80-seat outdoor courtyard that features a gazebo, boccie courts and a patio. A small Italian market is also now open. It sells imported Italian specialty items, including pasta and wines.
