Excellent food!

Michael's menu selection is great, not just limited to Italian, although their Italian dishes are excellent!

Michael's pizza is spectacular! Thin crispy crust with ample toppings and sauce with just the right amount of zest. The rest of the menu is just as good! Try the spedini!

I haven't been here in years. The last time I heard about this place someone got killed and they wasn't no longer 24 hours. This was a great place to go after bar hours and breakfast

I ordered a glass of wine in the bar and it was apparent the wine had sat to long - the bartender took it back without question and graciously... More
