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

We always make it a rule to visit Michaels when we are in the area. The food is always excellent and the pizza is awesome. Highly recommend Michaels.

My wife and I had an excellent dinner at Michael's in Waukesha on 7/17/15. Not too many Italian restaurants have a Gluten Free menu. We enjoyed a delicious Gluten Free Pizza for dinner, and also shared French Fried Eggplant with marinara sauce. Great food, service and atmosphere. Nice family restaurant with reasonable prices.

Pricey and wasn't too impressed. Hadn't been in years, lots of friends say food is really good. Food was good, but not worth the price in my opinion

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!
