Staff was very friendly. The food was amazing, they had huge portions. We all three could have split the veal patty meal and it would have been enough food.

We stopped by for lunch and both the service and food were good. The prices were moderate and we noticed a lot of the locals from the area dropped by for lunch.

I had the gnocchi and it was done perfectly and a great rich Italian tomato sauce. They serve fresh bread and salad with real homemade Italian dressing..... Recommend this place when in... More

Big portions good simple Italian style food and great pizza. Michael's is a Niagara Falls institution. Big portions, good freshly cooked food and a regular clientele that filters through all day. I started going to Michael's when I was in kindergarten. The pizza was always so hot I would burn the roof of my mouth. I was there last Tuesday,... More

This restaurant is a bit further from the falls, but worth the travel. The food was delicious and the portions were so large that my husband swears he kept eating and his plate refused to empty.

I stopped in a Michael's Restaurant today for lunch and it's as home made as I remember it from years ago. The food here is the real thing and the portions are massive.

This family Italian restaurant has been in business for many many years, and the family that owns/runs it has kept up a local reputation for good food in generous proportions. This place is a favorite for locals, and is well worth a visit for visitors looking for a very family-friendly, family restaurant in Niagara Falls.

This restaurant was not very spacious. The seating was tight; therefore, it was difficult to maneuver a stroller or wheelchair. However, the food was great. I would say that Michael's is considered casual dining.

A Niagara local recommended Michael's to us, and I'm glad we went. The Pizza I ordered was really good, the Calzone my friend ordered was HUGE big enough to feed a family of 4 easily, and also delicious. Staff was friendly and the food arrived at our table pretty fast.

We went because the desk clerk said that a lot of town-folk ate there. The food was homemade, and the portions are great. The sauce was fantastic, the home made macaroni was tender. We liked it so much we went back the next night.
