Michelina's located off Hwy 51 and Shea Blvd. Small, cozy, white table cloth. Staff has been there for decades. Brad is the 'go-to' expert. We had delicious veal piccatta, poached salmon, and a chicken and shrimp delight. All were prepared perfectly with tasteful sauces and ingredients. This is a popular neighborhood restaurant with many regulars so you will want to... More

The place is in a small strip store plaza and has a family trattoria feel. The service is excellent ,very friendly and attentive. The food was wonderful. Menu is... More

Located in a strip mall, you drive in and think, hmm. Go inside with confidence and you will change hmmm to WOW! The restaurant is lovely with outstanding service, fabulous food, and a beautiful environment. The service is spot-on, wait staff knowledgeable, food is exquisite. Go.

Being both Italian and from the greater NY area, I'm pretty picky when it comes to Italian restaurants. I LOVED Michelina's.. In addition to a delicious filling, my cannelloni was served with the lightest alfredo sauce I've ever eaten. My husband thoroughly enjoyed one of the evening's specials - a veal steak with mushroom sauce served with 2 stuffed shells.... More

Have had a number of people recommend Michelina's to us over the past few years but just haven't taken the time to go there ... why did we wait so long? The ambience was very warm and cozy. Started of sharing bruschetta - everything so fresh that we could have filled up on that alone! I had the brasciola and... More

Though we reside in Kentucky, we originally visited Michelina's because of it's good ratings and proximity to my sister's home in Phoenix. My mother, who uses a walker was in our party, as well. The staff understood the mobility issues and treated her like a queen, placing us at a convenient table. Our waiter, during both visits was excellent....Sorry I... More

This is a must visit if you enjoy Italian food. The location is in a strip center which does not do justice to what is revealed inside. Upon entering you will be greeted by a gracious host and an abundance of fresh flowers. Once seated the fine, yet casual, dining experience begins. Each of our party of 4 ordered different... More

The outside is surely deceptive... a small strip mall and a non-descript entrance. Once inside though... wow... fresh flowers everywhere, low lights; warm decor; very, very nice... without being formal or stuffy. Our service was outstanding... including being taken care of all night by the owner's son and a wide variety of staff. We had the stuffed mushrooms... very good,... More

Just go you won't be disappointed! Better than our Italian mom use to make! Cannelloni and Piccata with homemade Italian dressing are not to be missed. Fresh fliers in tables & accents make it feel like a very special occasion. The best Italian on the north side of the 51.
