Everything was wrong. Soup pasta veal horrible nothing worth even talking about We orderedveal Cordova The veal was Pattie’s not real veal. Linguini was supposed to be linguini Bianca no wear near that it was with red sauce we tried michelinas because my husbands remembered...it was good many years ago. No way. I will never order again. I have to say Grub Hubrefundedall our money. They understood the orobkem. I do hope people who like Italian food do not go there. I tecommed geuseppis little bit of Brooklyn for real Italian food that it’s so good you want to go as often as possible. From pizza to anything Italian FREAHLY cooked. Michelinas HORRIBLEMore

A reservation was secured in advance, but it turned out to be unnecessary. My wife and I arrived on time at the location. Ample parking is available as the restaurant is located in a strip shopping center with a large parking lot. We were seated...immediately in a small area near the front and a large container of water and glasses with ice were promptly delivered. Our waitress, Dee, appeared to be new but was on top of things. Drinks were received and enjoyed and our order appeared. My wife ordered eggplant rollitini and I ordered veal marsala. The veal was “the best in the city”. The eggplant left a little to be desired. The eggplant was prepared differently than my wife expected and not as good as she was prepared for. The service from our server was good until we requested the bill and it took a-while to get it as she had several tables to take care of. The cost of the meal was about $70 plus gratuity. We will return, as this place is an excellent restaurant with quality service and excellent food. My wife will order something differently on our next visit. Frankly the best Italian food we have enjoyed in or time in Stuart. We are looking forward to the next visit.More

We had dinner at Michelina's. Full House, but service was prompt and pleasant. I had Veal Michelina's, a delicious cutlet in white wine sauce with artichoke, capers, etc. Just what I wanted. One caveat: pasta comes with your meal, but if you do not like...tomato sauce on your pasta with a white wine entree, be sure to say so.More

We have not been to Stuart, FL in a year and a half but once here we had to visit our favorite restaurant Michelina's. The food here is always excellent and the service is wonderful. Tonight was no different. I ordered the Pasta Fagioli to...start off with and Chicken Parmesan. Both were delicious. My wife had a Caesar Salad and the Penne Michelina. She said that they were absolutely wonderful. Our server Bri was excellent. She was polite, friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and professional. For dessert we both had the Strawberry Cake . The Strawberry Cake is so good! The restaurant is CLEAN and very well maintained. Michelina's Restaurant has such a great atmosphere. Of all the great restaurants on the Treasure Coast Michelina's is by far the best!More

Amazingly good. From the moment we sat down we knew this was going to be an experience to remember. Right away our waiter (Nick Michelina) brought over the delicious garlic knots drenched in butter, and a large carafe of ice water. We arrived early to...take advantage of the sunset menu, which was a great deal. But honestly, we discovered that the regular menu prices were reasonable as well. The wife started with a nice salad and I with the cream of garlic soup. The soup was every bit as good as the other reviewers have raved about. I was impressed with the freshly made croutons on the soup (none of those rock-hard ones out of a box). For entrees we had the fresh catch Francese (Mahi Mahi) and veal marsala. Both were excellent. Tender flakey fish covered with egg batter and cooked perfectly. Veal was tender and delicious. Sauce/gravy on both was plentiful and yummy. We upgraded to a side order of fettucine Alfredo because we wanted to try the fettucine noodles that are freshly made in house. Delicious. We may have been too full for dessert, but since it came with the sunset deal, we got it anyway. Both the tiramisu and chocolate mousse cake were wonderful. Coffee was strong and rich and hot. A perfect meal. And great service. We will be back.More

Exceeded all expectations!! Pasta Fagioli and Cream of Garlic soup were delicious, lasagna was light and worth every calorie. Should we admit that we ate 2 servings of the garlic knots? Everything was homemade and served hot by very friendly staff. We will definitely be...back!!More

First off, make a reservation!!! Wanted some great Italian food and we found it! The service, atmosphere and food was all amazing. It was as though we were eating under the stars, nice romantic night out. We ordered the trio appetizer that came with calamari,...cheese sticks and coconut shrimp. The calamari was so soft with a perfect little crisp outside, cheese sticks had the softest cheese ever and the coconut shrimp were tender, sweet and crispy; it came with a sweet Thai chili sauce, marinara and spicy marinara (not too spicy). Complimentary Garlic knots were amazing; soft and warm with lots of garlicy butter to dip in. Cesar salad was delicious and we had to try the garlic soup that was hot, creamy and of course garlicky (but not over powering) with croutons on top. Entree, I had the special which was shrimp and lobster scampi, YUM-O. Only thing I’d say is maybe a tad too much butter and the noddles could have been cooked about 45 seconds longer, but that’s just being nit picky. My husband ordered the NY strip steak that came with green beans and mashed potatoes with Marsala sauce on top. Steak was cooked a perfect medium rare and he loved the sides. He also ordered the carbonara pasta entree and loved how creamy and flavorful it was. We sadly skipped dessert, but saw lots of it come out and it all looked great, wish we would have saved room. All in all, this is a great locally owned restaurant with a great atmosphere and small town, local vibe (everyone seemed to know everyone in there) it was great and we’d definitely return next time we’re in town.More

Loved the eggplant parm! My husband had the veal and he loved it as well. It’s a small, darkly lit, romantic type of place. Perfect night away from the kids.

Sorry to say but this is not what I would call GOOD Italian food ..we ordered appetizers to start ..coconut shrimp and calamari both were very good...looked for our waiter for more sauce...never came. If you want your dinner loaded with sauce and tons of...cheese on top this is your place. I could barely find any of the veal ? Three ordered the the Veal Parmesan ..I ordered the veal Marsala and asked our waiter Kyle TWICE to have the cook go lite on the Marsala.. Food arrived..mine I could smell it as soon as he set it down it was drowned in sauce and mushrooms and I couldn’t even cut what was supposed to be veal...I tried one bite and just couldn’t do it..so in its place I also got the veal parm... Kyle rushed us to order from the time we sat down..drinks , appetizers and dinner...we wanted a nice relaxing birthday celebration. We had made reservations and spoke to Melissa...I offered to bring in desert but she said...I am sure they can do something... did nothing ???? We had to ask for more water from another worker, a pepper mill with some pepper in it from yet another worker...only to be handed another empty one... I don’t care if they give you a ton of food..I would rather have a small good meal..Quality ..NOT Quantity . Also Kyle had no personality he wasn’t personable ..but he became all chatty when he delivered the check..but up until then he could have cared less.. I can’t say it must have been an off night ..the food is the food ...ENJOY ????More
