Average Italian

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... read more

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

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

We went for dinner on a Friday evening and at 5:30 had lots of choices as to where we sat. We had an excellent waitress and the food did not disappoint. They now offer choices of roasted beet salad (excellent) or caprese salad with your entree. The choices tend to be more northern Italian

This looked like a fine little local restaurant in our neighborhood, and we wanted to like it, but after eating a very average and unexciting meal here, we both suffered severe gastric distress. Can't really even look at it anymore. Beware.

My husband and I tried to make Michelangelo one of our "go to" restaurants after a long day at work. After going for months and trying to make it work--- we just gave up! We had the same waiter many times and he acted like he never saw us before which was strange but not a deal breaker. However, our... More
