Good food, cozy atmosphere

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.

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.

We shared a wonderful meal with friends here recently. Sea scallops and all the other dishes were perfectly preppared and served piping hot. The pasta dishe provided a healthy sized lunch the next day! The serving staff was attentive and efficient. This place never disappoints!

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.

Food could have had more flavor. Meatballs had too much breeding. Carrot cake was good. More, more...

From start to finish, the service was wonderful, the atmosphere was quaint and cozy, and the food was to die for made with love!! The only oops was that our lobster tail was just a bit overlooked. All in all I look forward to our next visit!

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
