The food was really good but way over priced. My wife ordered a pasta meal and when we got the bill there was add on fees. $3.99 for sausage $3 for ceaser salad. These were items we thought were included in the meal. They also charge you an extra .50 to use your debit card. Overall I won't go back... More

This place was great! We had tried to try out the new place in town (Michael J's) but they were over booked. We were really in the mood for Italian, so we stopped into Michelena's. It was the best decision, for sure! The fried ravioli was an amazing appetizer! My husband and I split the green chile chicken fettucini alfredo!... More

The food here is decent, nothing exceptional - though the price is on the high side; but the service we experienced was unbelievable horrible. Our waitress would vanish for long periods of time, had to ask for every single refill, and most upsetting - the $5 Caesar salad didn't arrive until AFTER we were done with our meals. She completely... More

We've eaten here before in the past, and loved the lasagne-the last time was 14 years ago. While the place still looks the same, it wasn't... they still have a great bargain for lunch- a $5.95 special with a good variety including drink. If you want an inexpensive lunch it's a good deal. They get very busy and they were... More

My family and i stopped in when we pass through the area. I thought the decor was good but the personal photos under the glass on the table was weird. The food came out hot and were a good size. It was okay to me my kids love their pasta. I would come back again for the friendly staff and... More

We stopped by for dinner and the service was great. You could tell that they were very busy, but our waitress still had a smile on her face and gave us the attention that we were looking for in a restaurant. The food took a long time to come out but in the end it was very delicious. The only... More

The atmosphere is okay, better than expected. The food was far below the quality expected for a sit down Italian restaurant (would have been happier at a fast food pizza/sub joint). When asked about a menu item we were told by the person we asked that she was not a waitress therefore she could not answer the question (I assume... More

The price and portion were good under the 2 for $22 special which included 2 salads, 2 half size entrees which were large enough, an order of garlic bread and 2 desserts. But the entrees were not exactly hot when they came out. Sausage for the spaghetti was an extra charge. Service was lacking. One member of our group ordered... More
