Pasta is terrific

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... read more

Tried Michael's for the first time last Saturday night with friends. Great evening with friends - we had the Super Pizza with a Antipasto Salad and Calamari. All was very good. 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

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.
