weekend getaway

we decided to get away for the weekend. We had lunch at Michelenas. The atmosphere was very nice and we enjoyed drinks and pizza. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. I recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting in Ruidoso

I've been coming here, while on my weekend getaways, for years. I have to honestly say that this is the best food in this town-and a real bargain! The lasagna here is really great! I wish I could have eaten every meal there. Also, service and decor great!

Good place to eat, good pizza, but I would recommend you to order the thin crust pizza. A good place to eat.

We always enjoy hot, fresh minestrone soup after skiing in the winter. This time it was custom ordered pizza and delicious lasagne in June! Always a favorite stop when we are in Ruidoso.

Small, convenient, friendly staff. If you want a quiet spot, pick a booth at the end. Large families with small children are frequent.

All of the food me and my family ordered had a great taste. We received great service from the host and waitress during our meal. The Chicken Alfredo is a little pricey for pasta, breaded chicken, and sauce.

Get the half orders as they are lot of food & the food is mediocre. Service was good. Charges extra for credit & debit cards 50 cents & food lacked warmth.

The food here was good. Definetly not like eating at Olive garden or other italian chain restaurants. Taste like homemade italian dishes. Not sure how authentic tho. Worth a try! Limited Italian in Ruidoso.
