Amazing food. Go here very often for Italian food. Their sauce and meatballs are amazing as well. Staff is very good and friendly. Small location so tends to get busy fast but usually you don't have to wait long to get a table.

Lovely Italian home cooking in the Italian district of Niagara. Food was fresh and wholesome. Portions were huge. We had a wide selection - meatloaf, burgers, honey fried chicken and pasta with meatballs - all excellent quality. Service was fast and efficient. Pine Avenue looks close to all the attractions on the free map of Niagara - but we walked... More

I had read the other reviews for Michael's Restaurant, and I had pretty high expectations. The restaurant is like a diner, which I already knew, and is located in the Little Italy section of Niagara Falls. The neighborhood seemed a little run down, but appeared to be safe. Our server was pleasant, and greeted us soon after we sat down.... More

We did not want to spend high prices at Seneca Casino, so we looked at the reviews and chose Michaels. The portions are HUGE, the staff are all young and really nice, just a down to earth place. If you have ever visited Rookies on Cape Cod in Wellfleet, you will know what I am talking about. Good old neighborhood... More

We enjoyed this casual restaurant. Our server was friendly and efficient. Don't skip ordering the salad with the hand-rolled mozzarella cheese. The cheese was very tasty, the salad greens crisp and fresh, and the house Italian dressing delicious. The pizza had a generous amount of cheese and the crust, though thin and somewhat crisp, was not the super-thin extra crisp... More

Great Italian restaurant! Always packed when we go and there's no wonder why. The food is always amazing and served quick, service is always friendly and attentive, and prices can't be beat.

We Had the most delicious dinner! Best pizza hands down. My husband said his gigantic calzone was best. We devoured our food and forgot to take pictures:( Anyone looking for a great meal with exceptional service must visit Michael's!

Guard at Niagara Falls State Park mentioned several places to have lunch. He then said he would go to Micheal's in Little Italy. We went to Micheal's. Diner with very friendly & efficient staff Husband got a ham & cheese sandwich. It was piled high with shaved ham. I got the fresh fried haddock. So very good!

Michael's has great food. The Chicken Parmesan is excellent, along with the homemade macaroni, gnocchi, and rigatoni. Even the salads are great! It isn't a fancy place but its reasonably priced and huge portions!

Looking for something off the beaten path while visiting the falls and this was EXCELLENT! Food was AMAZING. Portions were huge. Prices very reasonable. Pay the small up charged for the homemade pasta! This was an easy drive from our hotel. Would highly recommend. Would go again! Come HUNGRY!
