“Disappointing experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Hurried, lack-lustre and rather slap-dash service, not much atmosphere - although it was early evening and not "humming" - and the cooking lacks punch (watery bolognese sauce, anyone?). Best thing was that it was open on Monday evening when some other places in Buxton stay closed. It's not expensive but that's hardly a recommendation; you can do far better elsewhere locally - Brasserie de la Cour, for instance.

“Good Italian food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

Well it is an OK Italian restaurant. The menu was the normal Italian fare but had few specials the evening we visited. Our experience was that Michaelangelo's needs to work on it's service and atmosphere to compete in this popular market town.

“Great Food , Great Service , Great Atmosphere & All for a Great Price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I've dined here a lot over the past 12 months with friends & family and have not had one bad dining experience. The food has been absolute top quality on every visit , the staff have been very warm , welcoming , accommodating and highly professional in their service. ' Steak Night ' on a Thursday is a firm favourite and the steak has been cooked to perfection every time. I would happily eat here any night of the week. :) :) :)

“Great food and very good value for money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

This is one of the best italian restaurants in Buxton. We booked a table for 2 on a Saturday night for 8pm. The restaurant was quite busy but the service was very good and the food was great. A good feature of the restaurant is that it has a separate room upstairs which can accomadate larger tables for hen, stag and birthday parties etc. which means that the main restaurant does'nt become over crowded or too noisey. The menu is very reasonable and an average meal for 2 will set you back £50 with house wine. I do know that they have happy hours during the week where its any pizza or pasta for £5.
One great thing about Michelangelo's is although its fully licenced you can take your own wine, and they only charge £2.50 corkage!
The staff are very attentative and friendly and they dont make you feel rushed, great if you've eaten too much and need a rest before ordering desert.
Certainly book again.
