Great Dinner after the Falls!

Michael's was a last minute choice after consulting reviews. We were not disappointed!! Excellent food and sauce just like my husband's grandmother. She was an excellent Italian cook and my husband has very high standards as a result. We ordered many different items (6 people in our party) and... read more

This is one of the best kept secrets in Niagara Falls ~ the best Italian in the city!! We usually order dinner to-go, as the restaurant is super small & I don't want to chance a baby meltdown during a busy dinner. We have to have their house salad with rolled mozzarella & house dressing - it's a must!! So... More

Quality, quanity, & value for your money is exceptional! Great family restaurant. Went here last night. I had the gnocchi with meatballs- best ever! Kids got a 1/3 lb burger entree and the other cheese ravioli...2 thumbs up from everyone.

Cannot beat this place for the price and the food. Beans and Greens and a 1/3 pound hamburger for less than $4. Beer and family and it is always served quickly and professionally. Not your run of the mill restaurant.

Based on this single dining experience, it's impossible to rate this any higher. It's too bad that "Excellent" is your highest rating. Michael's was recommended to us by our Niagara Falls tour guide as a good place to eat. WOW - was he ever right ! We arrived about 5:00 PM on Saturday, July 11th and were promptly seated by... More

Michaels has made Greens and Beans very popular in Niagara. The reason being that they start with dried beans, soak them, and cook them a long time. Many more expensive restaurants pick the fast and cheap way out. They heat canned beans in chicken broth....that is fast food greens and beans, and soup of that kind is not very good.... More

We went there around 4:00 p.m. on a Thursday and it was really busy. We were greeted immediately. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave excellent suggestions. The alfredo sauce was some of the best we have ever had!

Wanted authentic Italian food on our trip to Niagara Falls and that's what we got at Michael's. Our waitress was very nice and we got fast service with a smile. Would recommend to anyone.

A short drive from the Falls is a section of the city called "Little Italy"; and the main road through this section is Pine Avenue. There are a number of pizza parlors and other Italian restaurants, but Michael's is the best. The staff is attentive and the food is amazing. The calzone is huge and loaded with whatever you want...
