Wonderful italian restaurant

Went in June, just my wife and I, and it was a high class restaurant with wonderful food. The veal chop was top notch (although probably the highest priced item on the menu but worth it). The wine list was good and fairly priced. Would highly recommend for a quality meal. Service was good... read more

Disappointed doesn't describe it. We have been going to Michael's for many years and enjoyed the ambiance and the friendly service. On our recent experience has left us up confused. From where we sat I could see into the kitchen where I saw Duffy eating his dinner and then going into the back yard. Clearly he was not doing the... More

Michael's..well established family restaurant with a menu to please all. Steaks are fabulous. Italian food like grandma (nanno) made. AND>> the best greens and beans. You will not be disappointed..The owner makes it a point to venture out from the kitchen, yes he cooks, to say hello and make sure you are pleased.

Michael's is a local family-owned restaurant that has been around for more than 50 years. The food is great overall and there some "to-die-for" dishes - Scallops Amaretto, Veal anything to name a couple. Everything is made fresh and the owner/cook makes the rounds personally to make sure everybody's happy! There's a bar area as well. It's a small restaurant,... More

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 the meals were so plentiful... 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.
