“Great food, great service, great price!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Visited with a family of seven - 4 adults and 3 kids - for a farewell meal before our grandparents fly back home. We had a ragu pasta, which was full of taste and was eaten by kids and grown ups alike, a crusty delicious big pizza, and two tasty salads. The nice restaurant stuff also gave us fried calamari and dessert on the house - which was very kind, especially since we were with a baby who ran around and made quite a mess...
Everything was perfect, and the bill, with 2 coffees, added to 75$, great deal!

“nice clean place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

no complaints, i would go back. nice clean place and the staff was very quick and responsive. i had a white pizza and added sun dried tomato, it was very good. parking is difficult, since it is on residential area sided streets - had to drive around 5 minute to find a parking spot. not a fancy place, but a place the locals walk into non-stop to order food to go with no problems.

“Great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

We were in town just for the night and found this gem on trip advisor. The reviews did not let us down-this place had awesome food and even better service (John was our server and he was the best we've ever had...anywhere!) We are picky about our Italian food but they passed all the tests, especially the appetizers and the cannolis at the end!

“We crashed a farewell party!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Friends picked us up at Newark airport for a lunch during a 7 hour layover. They picked the best restaurant locally by Trip Advisor. It was an excellent selection and we had a blast. We were the only people there that were not part of a private party. It added to the fun. The food was wonderful. The staff - exceptional. When a huge plate of salad passed by us, the other woman there muttered how good that salad looked. Well, soon after, a plate of the salad was brought to our table. The waiter noted he had excellent hearing! They also comped us coffee and dessert because of the noise of the party! We thought that they were going to complain since we were so loud! The food was excellent. The prices were great. And the staff was beyond reproach. We felt at home. How often can you say that about a restaurant? I just am disappointed that I don't live anywhere near Elizabeth, NJ!

“A dining experience not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

I live in Hudson County where there are dozens of great restaurants but I prefer to travel to Michelinos's in Elizabeth for an absolutely great eating experience. This local Gem, nestled in a quiet Elizabeth neighborhood, has an updated, upscale but casual atmosphere, wonderfully prepared and presented dishes served by knowledgeable and friendly staff. Desserts are worthy of the meal they follow, and with a full service bar, private dining room with fireplace, Michelino's is truly a gourmet experience not to be missed!
