We arrived to a near empty... More

All the meals are good but we especially love their pizza and house salad. Reminds us of good New York style pizza with delicious crust and great toppings. Staff makes you feel like part of the family. Booths are comfortable and private. The bar area is separate so the dining area is quiet. Gets very busy of Friday and Saturday... More

My husbands burger was cooked to perfection. My shrimp dish was delightful. Our server was attentive but didn't hover.

I've been going to Michael's for awhile now, but just writing a review now. My wife and I were at Michael's for dinner prior to an evening event at a theatre that night. The restaurant was packed due to homecoming groups. The food whatever you order is great. We had the combo appetizer platter and pizza and they were the... More

This is a nice Italian restaurant with fair prices, great specials, very good thin crust pizza and the best egg plant parmesan I ever had as it is made is a caserole dish and baked.

This is a hidden gem for Waukesha! Decor is sort of old school nostalgic Italian. Loved it! Wait staff are very attentive & pleasant. Seem genuinely interested in your dining experience. All of the food was wonderfully tasteful: fresh & homeade. We will definitely be back :)
