When you are craving great Italian food, Michael's is the place. Their menu is varied from pizza to traditional Italian specialities. Our service was excellent!

We have tried lots of different take out pizza in the area and this is the best. Good crust, sauce, and toppings.

We frequent here.... A LOT! The food is awesome and consistent each time. The service is always wonderful. The owner is always welcoming and involved. I cannot say enough great things. If you haven't tried it...you ARE missing out. These are my favorite dishes: -Veal Siciliano -Mussels (white wine broth) -Stuffed Pepper soup -Pizza -Escargot

We ordered the fresh mozzarella appetizer, which was excellent. I had the Cheese Tortellini with Beef Ragu and the Madeira wine sauce was absolutely perfect. My boyfriend ordered the Chicken Spiedini, which was very well-cooked and HUGE portions. I also had the tortilla soup and I surprisingly enjoyed this soup. It's not something I'd normally order, but it was excellent.... More

This is definitely a couples place. The bar is appropriately dark, the restaurant is appropriately lit. The food is good, service is good.

We finally went here for dinner and were back the next week.. Such good food! They have a big menu and everything is well priced. Better food then Olive Garden or Mama Mia's.. They have call ahead seating, which I suggest you do. Parking can be a pain specially with winter here. Very comfortable! So far the dishes we ordered... More

My sister selected Michael's for her birthday dinner as she wanted to try something new. It was a busy Saturday evening so we had to wait a bit, but honestly the wait was well worth it. The service was very good, the atmosphere was lively but not too loud, and the food was outstanding. The pasta portions are quite large... More

A Groupon got us to try Michael's on a cold Saturday night. The estimated wait time was right on. The extensive menu had all kinds of Italian dishes including pizza. Entrees include soup/salad and garlic/hot bread. I chose the goat cheese ravioli with vegetables from the specials, and it was great. My dining partner had the veal marsala from the... More
