On a recent visit for my granddaughter's birhday, I had the best, most tender& flavorful Braciole I ever put in my mouth. The servings were generous with awesome authentic Italian bread. This will be a go to restaurant for me next time we have a special occasion. The only down side was that the server acted as though she was... More

This very Italian Restaurant really kicks into high gear when the weekend comes around. Duffy Mastropietro has no peer in putting on the Prime Rib chef's hat on the weekend. When you can prepare the rib so that the end cut is still medium rare, you've got the golden touch...and lest I wax a little too long on the rib,... More

We have been to Michael's many times and always enjoyed the good food and friendly atmosphere. The fact that the owner takes the time to greet his customers and inquire as to their comments on the food, is a personal touch that is appreciated.

While you can dress very informally and not feel out of place here, the dining room has a touch of elegance that is becoming less common these days. There are cloth tablecloths, cloth napkins, candle lamps at each table, and a piano in the smallish room (about 10-12 booths and tables). Combined with very tasty Italian food, the result is... More

Tasty food, plentiful portions, & friendly, efficient service. When we're in town for the Merry-go-round Theatre,we always head to Michael's before the show. Never disappointed!

After looking for a good local restaurant on this site, we settled on Michael's in Auburn, New York. We looked at the overall reviews and a the first couple of reviews. Had we looked more carefully, we would have noticed that the attached menu is not the menu for this restaurant. The menu for the restaurant attached here is for... More

This place is such a quaint and delicious restaurant. I have never been disappointed with a meal from here. The veal parm is the best that I have ever tasted!! I would highly recommend this restaurant, especially for a romantic night out as the atmosphere is very nice.

I grew up in Auburn but moved away decades ago and have travelled widely throughout the world. I have eaten at Michael's a number of times, and am always impressed by the quality and creativity of the cuisine. Duffy, the owner and chef, is a CIA trained professional who keeps the atmosphere simple, friendly, and welcoming. Prices are good, quantities... More

My boyfriend and I visited this establishment about 7 times and had great experiences every time. Duffy the chef and owner is very friendly and is more than willing to make sure you have a great experience and also will cook anything that's not on the menu. In response to 4-15 comment; do you really expect a business to honor... More

Some of the best I've had anywhere. To top it off, the portions are very liberal. My wife loves the sweet Italian sausage, but I prefer the meatballs because they are tasty, tender, and flavorful. The marinara sauce they use is amazingly wonderful. However, they are only open for dinner and closed on Mondays.
