Surprisingly tasty meals at this small restaurant on Center Street. It has a nice selection of wine and fantastic bread to accompany your meal. The only negative of our lunch was the glaring sun coming in the windows directly into the eyes of half our table. But in December, that much sun is appreciated.

Very good food and Bruce was wonderful. A little on the expensive side, but otherwise a great experience. We would definitely return.

My husband and I loved to go to Michael's. We have been there numerous times and had great experiences. Last night, two other couples along with my husband and I went to Michael's for NYE for the 9:00 seating. Everything started out fine. The waiter came over and asked what we wanted to drink and brought us bread for the... More

Had a very nice anniversary dinner with my wife and it was an extremely pleasant experience. Excellent food and our waiter Ed was exceptional. Very attentive to our needs and terrific conversation. He was genuinely interested in our meals and comfort. As good as I've ever had. Will be back.

I have been here a number of times and the food is always delicious. The servers are very pleasant and helpful. It is a smaller place and it gets packed some nights so it can feel cramped and loud. The decor is dated but the tasty food makes it worthwhile.

Very good Italian food in a lively setting. A party of five, we were given a nice table in a separate alcove area, away from the busy bar area, so we could have a conversation. All diners in our group were happy with their choices (seafood/mussels, soups, chicken, pasta, Caesar salad). The service was very attentive and the food delicious.... More
