Our table all ordered fish. I had salmon. My salmon was perfectly cooked. With the sauce, the food melted in my mouth. The other fish dishes were also excellent. The only issue we had was a reasonably long wait for food. There was a large group downstairs and a power failure earlier in the evening that accounted for the wait.... More

We were a party of five and did not have reservations and were happily accommodated as they were serving a large party in their back room. The waitstaff was very friendly. Food took a while to arrive but each order was cooked to perfection. Large portions and food was excellent. The cannoli for desert was great. The chef/owner even came... More

Best food since we arrived at Cooperstown! Located near by where we were staying. The Resturant is in a residential area. Definitely authentic Italian Food! Highly recommend the place and reasonably priced.

We were here at All Star Village and reserved the back room for about 50. The wait staff was very accommodating and the food was good. They handled our party with ease. Food was decent. Overall a good pic.

Simple restaurant with fun and relaxed bar upfront. Food is high quality and well prepared for a small local place. Fresh salads and everyone liked the pastas; calamari were an excellent portion and fresh.

I like to go to Bella Michael's for lunch and for the occasional night out with my friends. The food is really good. They have a large room in back which is great for larger groups. Service has been very slow, though, at dinner time even when we've called ahead to say that we'd be there with a large group.

The woman at the Hampton sent me to this venue and suggested the Salmon. It was very good and the service was great.

It's just a mile down the road from the hotel. We were greeted warmly. Our waitress was a bit slow but apologized profusely. We kept it simple with... More

Bella Michael's is a hidden gem in Oneonta. It is located on a back street off Main Street. Locals know you can always get a good meal. One suggestion! Since it is a local favorite make reservations! Forget about Friday and Saturday unless you do! You might get to sit in the bar area where you get to meet all... More
