“Exceptional Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

My wife and I had dinner at Michaelangelo's in Cleveland's Little Italy area on a Friday night. The restaurant was not filled, a fact that spoke to the large number of other Italian restaurants nearby. The people who dined elsewhere missed out on a wonderful meal. The menu was creative and the food expertly prepared. We had half portions of the pasta course. Veal filled tortellini and ravioli in truffle sauce were delicious. My main course of pork medallions in Amarone and gooseberry sauce was exceptional. The wine list was well selected and we enjoyed a Sangrantino from Montefalco, one of our favorite wines, not often found. The decor of the interior is calming and elegant. Valet parking is available.

“All Around Perfect Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I really don't give many 5 star ratings because I like to save them for the best and this is definitely one of the best. This restaurant is tucked away from the main drag of Little Italy, but it represents the greatness of Little Italy. This restaurant has amazing decor which completely sets the mood for a romantic evening. There was 1 waitress for the entire restaurant and she was incredible from knowing every detail of every special (there were a lot) to taking care of every request and remembering personal details of the dining experience. The food was incredible and I've had a lot of Italian food and have eaten around Little Italy a lot, and this restaurant is the best by far. Whenever you need a very nice romantic evening, come to Michaelangelo's. I will definitely come here again and am actually going there in the next few days to share the experience with my family. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Sure, it's a little pricey, but it's definitely worth it.

“Good Italian food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

One of our favorite places to dine. Nice portion sizes and fresh food. Service is pretty good and they have a nice wine list. Love the art and decor but the booths are not intimate or romantic. One long booth runs the length of the restaurant so you are very close to all the other diners. Despite this we go back for good food and wine.

“Cozy Italian Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

This place doesn't look like many other restaurants in Cleveland, tucked in off the street. A nice fireplace with seating around it in the bar. A brighter dining room...a little too bright for my taste. Food is excellent and the service is good too. Wouldn't hesitate to return.

“Delicious but tight corridors!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Hi,

We went to dinner here for my fiance's birthday. I loved the fireplace in the bar area--it was very cozy. I was hoping the entire restaurant would be cozy and romantic; however there is only inches between the tables. We sat by a couple that were obnoxiously texting and answering their phones. It would have been much more enjoyable and intimate to have more room. However, the service was excellent and our server was knowledgeable about the wine list and the food was delicious!!
