Family Italian Restaurant Offers Good Food for a Great Value

The food at Michael's is always good, with excellent pasta dishes that include chicken, veal, steak, pork or seafood as their strong suit. They include tomato based dishes as well as alfredo sauces. They also offer scallops, shrimp, King Crab, and blackened salmon. Meals are ample in size, and... read more

My husband and I went to this restaurant this past weekend. We were hungry and just needed a place to eat. Saving money is always a nice thing. We signed up for our birthdays, so my husband received a free birthday meal. We thought, let's go here. We had such a nice waitress (I think her name was Kim) and... More

Just moved into the area and went looking for a new favorite Italian restaurant. Not sure this is it. Went twice - the first time had the veal. It was just average but the salad with the house dressing was awful. Tasteless. Second time we tried the pizza. It was good, but not memorable. Maybe we'll keep looking, though its... More

The food is consistent. Basic Italian but good. Soup or salad and garlic bread come with the main course. Service can be a bit spotty. But for the most part it's better than most.

We have been going to Michael's for several years now. Very good Italian food. Since I have acid reflux, I can't enjoy the tomato sauces on meals, but I usually get the Italian Sausage Sandwich without the sauce and it is excellent, expecially the bread it is served on. My husband love the spaghetti and meatballs and my daughter dies... More

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

Took Illinois friends there Saturday evening - each of us had a different pasta dish (i.e., spaghetti and meatballs, mostaccioli, egg plant parmagiano, and beef ravioli). Our friends really liked the red sauce. The Italian bread was generous and delicious. Ordered a bottle of Decoy Red Blend - excellent wine and very good value considering what restaurants typically mark-up their... More
