I felt compelled to write a review for this restaurant after a dreadful trip there last night. As a Whitley Bay resident, Michelino's has been a firm favourite for as long as it has been open (this was our third visit this year) and was always the place we'd go to if we wanted something a little more personal than...

We have used this restaurant a number if times in the past and the food and service have always been good. But on this visit the service was incredibly slow, almost 45 mins between the tiny starters and when the mains finally arrived, almost an hour and a half after being seated, turned out to be really bland. We had... More

Went here last night, table of 14. Most of us chose from the midweek deal menu £7.50 for two courses. Very good value. The food was beautifully presented and we left 14 empty plates!

My family and I went to Michelino's to sample there lunchtime special ..... What a waste of time, really wish we had gone somewhere else. When we arrived the restaurant was empty, we were shown to our table by a pleasant young guy, we ordered from the specials menu. After waiting nearly half an hour our starters arrived. The soup...

Decided to try here for Sunday lunch, mostly on a friends recommendation, and we were not disappointed. The waiter, Thomas, was extremely welcoming, quickly shown to the table, and the drink order promptly taken, quickly followed by food order. We'd decided not to have starters but to save space for dessert, so we promptly received a basket of bread and... More

I ate here as part of a large (40+!) party and found the food to be excellent and the service first class. We were made to feel very welcome and the staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. I'd certainly recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.

I find the poor reviews very strange and out of place....we have dined here for many years so have seen it change hands. Right now the quality of food is superb. I have never had an average meal here, the food is great, kids are welcomed and the service is always friendly and warm. If this place is good enough... More
