Prices: New York high (I live there) and if you served this food in New York you would go bust. Food: If you served this food in Italy (where I was born) you be shot for crimes against culture. Where to start: guys, the starch with the protein is not an afterthought. The potatoes under my fish were stone cold,... More

Came here for dinner on the recommendation of a Cleveland native and what a wonderful find! We had the Mussels to start and the sauce was so good we sopped it up with the wonderful bread (which was freely refilled for us). Main course dishes were both just wonderful: lobster ravioli with lobster claw meat in a perfect creamy red... More

We went to Michaelangelo for a late night dinner after symphony. Ordered the antipasto - not much cheese or meat just overcooked veggies and a nasty tapanade. The wine poor was expensive and quite small. The pasta was overcooked and rubbery. The service was very slow. Quite disappointed - poor value and quality at a high price.

This no family Italian restaurant but special occasion or a great night out. Very very good menu and the food is prepared perfectly. Not just me but a lot of talk around town. Its located on the east side of Cleveland in Little Italy. A great bar vibe with fire place. The Owner/Chief really knows his craft.

Attended a baby shower here a few years ago. The salad, pasta and chicken dish were excellent, as was the service. Returned for a birthday celebration and loved it. We all ordered something different and sampled each others, as we are wont to do. Especially loved the pasta with truffles. The ambience of the bar fireplace where we enjoyed an... More

There are so many Italian restaurants in the Cleveland area but few are QUALITY Italian cuisine. It is wonderful to visit Michaelangelo's again and again and be able to count on the quality of the dishes. Most recently we returned for a pre Severence concert dinner. We did not have reservations so we sat at the bar but the dinner... More

I have been looking for Veal Oso buco for some time. I read that Michaelangelo ' s has it and that is supposed to be delicious. I sent my husband to pick up an order via carry out. When I opened the container, I noticed that the entire meal was stuffed into it with the spinach being on top of... More

I visited this restaurant twice in late 2014, once for dinner and a second time for lunch. The food is excellent. The Ossobucco was amazingly tender, rich, and flavorful. The risotto, al dente and creamy. Interestingly both visits the service was a bit slow. The wait staff were gracious and nice but it often seemed that one waiter serviced the... More
