Good food and service

We stopped for an early dinner on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The food, prices and service were great. Small family restaurant style in a neighborhood called Little Italy. Definitely not elegant, but well worth a visit.

We were visiting Niagara Falls and asked for a suggestion on where to eat from one of the Hotel Staff. They directed us to Michael's. We were absolutely blown away by the service and the meal. Our waitress was so helpful when explaining the offerings and took her time with us. We order the lasagna and it was absolutely wonderful.... 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.

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 everyone was happy. Service was outstanding !!!

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

Place was hopping when got there. Good old world Italian, our group liked the sauce. Big portions and tasty food in Little Italy section of town. Would definitely come back if in the area.
