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 :)

I had reviewed this restaurant over a year ago and had a great experience. This last time I visited, the food quality was not as high as my previous visit. We ordered 2 dishes, both of which had tomato bases, and both were very bland. The last time the sauce was flavorful and hearty, this time not so much. Service... More

Stuffed mushroom appetizer was really good. I had a spicy tomato cream based pasta dish which was excellent. However found their garlic bread to be quite disappointing.

Love that they use fresh mushrooms on the pizza. Will need to try something else on the menu sometime soon. All the other dishes that go by look awesome.

Visiting relatives in Wisconsin who took me there for dinner. Place was very busy. They usually need to make reservations. Nice variety of choices on menu. Everything looked good. I had a special for the day, Lobster Cannelloni. Was very good. Would highly recommend.

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.
