A wonderful Italian restaurant that has been in the family for decades. A good assortment of items and a great wine selection. If you like veal, you won't find a better place. The flavor and tenderness of their various veal dishes is fantastic. Prices are reasonable for such a high class menu.

This restaurant gave me one of the best meals I have ever eaten. I ordered the sliced tenderloin with bordelaise sauce. Yummy! The space is small but charming and the service is great!

Food was fabulous. Small place but lacked only slightly in atmosphere. I had surf and turf. Cooked exactly to my want, the tender beef melted in my mouth. Fried clams and calamari were also done to perfection, and didn't taste like it came from a box! Prices matched quality and quantity.

I tend to order the same things in restaurants we frequent. At Michael's, I get the PJs Salad. It's an entree-sized salad with greens lightly dressed in Michael's FABULOUS house dressing and topped with perfectly cooked and seasoned sliced beef tenderloin. My son orders their housemade ravioli with meatballs. My husband usually orders the seared tuna. On our last visit,... More

We looked through the menu on this website before deciding to go here. After opening the menu we were convinced we'd gone to the wrong restaurant. Menu was significantly smaller and prices were much higher. We left before even touching our water glasses.

My husband often went to Michael's with his parents in the 60's, so when we went back to a class reunion recently, we had to go back "home" to good Italian dining. The pasta is always good, and the Italian bread is chewy-delicious. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was cozy. Not much has changed over the years. Gluten-free people:... More

Recently ate at this restaurant. The food was good although somewhat pricey..the restaurant it self is in need of updates. Dining room dark and cramped. The ladies room is in desperate need of being renovated..very dated, carpet very worn..Our waitress was pleasant and efficient. Although the food was good, would hesitate to return..

Very quiet and nice decor. Great service. Meal came with bread and salad but the prices seemed a little higher than they needed to be.
