Great food, fun atmosphere.

The only reason I didn't give it a five is you have to wait in a line outside to get a table, but the food is worth it. The dining room is set up like a diner and is a little crowded. The service is fast and efficient. The food is great, I loved the lasagna and the salad with... read more

Michaels is a quaint little italian restaurant. We enjoyed the food immensely and the service was great. I will say it is a pretty small establishment, the lighting a little dull and the decor is a bit lacking. If you like the flair of big chain restaurants, this isn't the place for you. Even though it is a little out... More

Stopped in and had some pizza rolls- which were fine, no decor and the coffee was way too strong, service so-so, had to wait a bit for the check. had a hard time finding a place to park, went in the back and parked in the church parking lot

I was in the mood for Italian food and read some good reviews about this place. It is more of a diner than a restaurant. The food did not seem very fresh. The bread was dried out and the lasagna seemed old and was not presented very well on the plate.

Two friends of mine and I just went to Michael's during a visit to the area. The reviews seemed wonderful, so we gave it a try. We ordered a pizza as it looked delicious; we all agreed it was "ok". The atmosphere is what probably bothered us the most, it seemed as though the staff gawked at us our entire... More

We went here after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Large portions of food, delicious sauce, and wonderful bread. We enjoyed it so much but couldn't finish it, so we took the rest back to the hotel with us for later. Our waitress was friendly and everything appeared clean.

Coming from an Italian family, I was raised to be picky about eating pasta outside the house. However, Michael's was always my favorite Italian restaurant. I miss how friendly their staff is, I miss how great the sauce was and I miss their giant portion sizes. It was both the first place I ever went to eat on Pine Ave,... More

I'm not Italian, but I have always enjoyed their sauce, the bread and the excellent service. I would recommend them highly.

Nice place but sauce is not Italian. Tastes like jar sauce and not the kind of sauce you find in Italy. And alittle sour and thick. Probably won't be back.

I am sorry you did not care for our tomato sauce. its my grandmother recipe who was born near Naples. We style our sauce after what Italians call Sunday sauce when they have more time to cook it a long time with meat in it as opposed to their quick everyday sauce. Its a lot more work but we and...
