Michael's is a quaint "Italian" restaurant set on the west end of Auburn. It has been around for at least 50 years. But its real history is the last 10 or so under the management of present family member Duffy. The food is above average...More

Small restaurant with the best greens and beans on the planet! Excellent pasta dishes, but you can also order a steak. Highly recommend.

I couldn’t have dreamed of a better evening. Food was fantastic as always and as usual owner Duffy was there with his outstanding personality to make the evening one to remember always.

This restaurant offers mediocre food that was probably popular in the 1960's. Basic pasta, beef, and way overpriced salads of mostly limp iceberg and romaine. Our waiter was humorless and didn't really know his menu. It was very crowded early on a Friday night (5:30PM),...More
