Excellent, from the moment that you walk in the door. The atmosphere was perfect with the lighting and the music. Potential to be very romantic. The food was amazing and probably some of the best Italian that we've ever had! Would return in a heartbeat.

This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Tucson. Now that the road construction is finished it's much easier to get in and out of. The food is always great as is the service. They have a decent wine list and you never feel rushed. If you haven't been there put it on the calendar!

Michaelangelo has been an Italian food staple for years. Service is constantly friendly and courteous. While the food is good, the portions are GIGANTIC. The starter salad is the size of a dinner salad, then you have the rolls, then your meal comes. If you get the chicken grigliata, I can guarantee, you won't be able to finish it. They... More

This is a traditional Italian restaurant run by the family for a couple generations. The atmosphere is pleasant and attractive, the welcome warm and genuine, and the service just right. The food was good and by the way we have just come back from two weeks in Italy, so our standards were up a bit. We started with flatbread bruschetta,... More

The restaurant has been there a long time, 26 years (in 2015) but it is just average Italian in my opinion. The décor is from the 1980s or 1990s. Could use remodeling. The waitstaff are very nice and friendly and the service is good. But, the food is just average. The marinara sauce is flavorless in my opinion. I am... More

I've been to Michelangelo's several times in the last five years. The food and service is always consistent. The décor is beautiful. We were seated in the back room area and the place was packed. Our food was served fresh and hot and the servers checked on us many times making sure that our wine glass was full. This is... More

Two of us had dinner, including a well prepared ceaser salad. Fast friendly service. Good house chianti. Large portions. Fabulous cannoli for desert. There are three dining areas, separated by large windows, creating a nice, open feel. Also very nice outdoor seating in front & back.

Great local restaurant for a night out. Tomato basil soup is worth the $2 upcharge. Meals are well portioned but not going to be huge but they are all homemade so more than makes up for it. The rolls are among the best in town.

I went twice to Michelangelo's restaurant over the past few months, and while I really hoping to find a nice, good Italian restaurant in Oro Valley, it can just not deliver. The price of the menu items hint for a restaurant that provide good or superior Italian dishes, yet the taste is ordinary, lacking the finesse and freshness you find... More
