From the first table visit to the celebratory sambuca at the end of our meal they know how to treat a guest. We put the evening in the chefs hands and what a fantastic experience. Fresh everything and made from scratch this Italian food is the real deal. Cuisine, service and casual one of a kind.

Been coming to Michelinas for close to 25 years. It is consistently good, Michelina comes out each night goes from table to table welcoming you and thanking you for coming. The Osso Bucco is the best I have had any where. She has large vases filled with flowers all over the restaurant. White table cloths and a wait staff that... More

This is a chef-owned and run small but lovely place: fresh flowers, white tablecloths, long-time staff and excellent food. Come hungry.

Our first visit to Michelina's with two other couples. We were promptly seated for our 5:30 reservation. There are approximately 20 tables on two levels. White table cloths, mirrors providing a open ambience with wine bottles in small alcoves along the wall. Our dinners consisted of NY Steak, Scallops and Shrimp, Eggplant Parmigianna, Chef's Shrimp special. Both couples enjoyed their... More

We were turned on to Michelina's 15 years ago by a concierge at a hotel we were staying at in Phoenix / Scottsdale. Visited then with our kids. The restaurant is at the corner of Shea and the 51 in a very non-descript shopping mall. But, inside the food / service has always been great. So much so, that we... More

Even if we didn't live just a few blocks from Michelina's terrific restaurant we would make the drive because it's definitely worth it. Charming, friendly and really yummie food.

We have dined at Michelina's every March for many years to celebrate my birthday. We live in San Diego and come to Arizona for Spring Training. Don't be put off by the location in a small strip mall. Once you open the door and see the beautiful fresh flowers and white linen table clothes you will be pleasantly surprised. The... More

If you have the chance, don't miss this hidden gem of a restaurant. Outstanding service, great food and good prices. Michelina herself came out to say hello to us. We were visiting Phoenix on vacation and wanted a good Italian meal and came upon this place. So happy that we did ! Debbie K from Bayside, NY

My husband and I are new to Phoenix and were introduced to Michelina's by some family who has lived here for years and goes there regularly. It is truly a special spot and one to which we'll return for any special dinners! Don't be put off by the "hole-in-the-wall" exterior. Upon entry, you'll be greeted by huge bouquets of fresh... More

The grilled chicken was enjoyed by all ... when topping any pasta dish. The noodles seemed boxed, though the meals were all good. The veal lasagna was very enjoyable. It's by far not the greatest Italian food we have ever had. We sat upstairs and could hear everyone's conversations. The waiter also seemed to pay more attention to the regulars.... More
