We ended up going to Michael's on a Friday night, I called ahead to make reservations (which they don't take, but do put you on a 'list') We ended up having to wait about 25 minutes, no problem there was plenty of room at the bar. We got the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer (yum!) and the clam chowder (extra... More

Love the thin crust pizza. The sauce is spicy without going overly so. They even use fresh mushrooms.

I have eaten in many of the best restaurants in the world; no brag ... just fact. It is easy to recommend Michael's as it is as good an Italian restaurant as can be found. The pizza is without equal and the other dishes make you want more. The true bonus is that it is a bargain, unlike the "best... More

Yummy - we love Michael's! We live nearby and have been there several times, and the food is always wonderful. The service is good, too. Be sure to try the Cappalachi della Nonna - seafood pasta that's the best I've had anywhere. The chocolate martinis are wonderful, too.

This is not the Michael's I went to when I first came to Waukesha. After knowing Michael's for years mostly as a place to go for pizza or inexpensive run-of-the-mill pasta dishes, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the menu has been extensively updated. The food was fresh and delicious. We'll be back - soon.

Michael's is currently our very favorite take-out pizza. Great Italian sausage and the mushrooms are fresh and plentiful!

I've never had a bad experience with Michael's either with their pizza (which I often carry out) or the classic Italian menu. Service is always good and the food never disappoints. The pizza is for my taste the best pizza in Waukesha, and that says a lot because there is lots of good pizza in this town.

Very cozy and relaxing. We have never been anything but pleased with the food and service. The wait time is what you would expect for any "popular" dining experience.

We ate here on the Saturday after Valentines Day. It was about 6pm and it was fairly crowded. The service was great, everything arrived quickly. My husband ordered the manicotti and I ordered the Chicken Marsala - Gluten Free. My husband loved the manicotti. I took a little bite of the sauce and it was excellent. My chicken was delicious...
