We had a wonderful delicious meal and a great experience here just the other night.

The food wa amazing, the staff so polite and willing to meet all of our requests. We love the white linen table cloths and napkins, the little candles on the table and the wait staff in their starched white shirts. The house dressing is delicious as well as the homemade pasta sauce. The size of... read more

There's nothing better than an excellent chef owned restaurant when the chef is truly there designing, creating, and preparing your meal. Michael's Restaurant demonstrates what a difference a hands-on approach makes to fine dining, especially when the chef loves what he or she does. The menu has all your Italian cuisine favorites plus nightly specials. Salads are cold and crisp,... More

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
