We loved the warm atmosphere of the bar area with the fireplace and great wine selection. The restaurant area has white tablecloths and excellent service. The food is a little pricey, but we loved the veal selection and special sea bass of the day. A slice of multi grain and Italian bread is provided. Valet parking makes it easy to... More

We went there for a family dinner after seeing a play and where very excited having heard about all the "great reviews" - well the staff is very proud of the restaurant's past achievements but neither the food nor the quality of the service was anything special. I had the tuna carpaccio as a starter - it was flooded in... More

Out of the way in Little Italy, valet parking so no hassle finding a place to park. Our server Sarah was great, she knows the menu and wines! Food was excellent, very creative and nice presentation. Cold Antipasti was excellent! Lobster ravioli was outstanding. A great evening, we will certainly return!

My husband and I visited Michaelangelo's on our weekend trip to Cleveland. We were looking for a romantic little spot in Little Italy. This was just the place. The food was imaginative, the service was impeccable and the location and atmosphere was spot on. I was particularly taken by the wine menu and the creative way in which food was... More

Big hunks of meat here. Everything vegetarian was heavy. The eggplant was so heavily breaded, we couldn't tell if there was actually eggplant in the dish. The gnocchi was a bit tough and they added so little pistachio pesto it was barely visible. The last straw was what seemed Kraft parmesan cheese topping the main dish. A pricey Italian restaurant...

This is a highly rated restaurant which we may have caught on an off-night. Menu is enticing, wine list is great. But, the food - all three entrees - were highly salted and didn't strike me as authentic Italian having grown up in an Italian neighborhood area. The waiter was attentive but his assistance was careless - both in performance... More

MICHAELANGELOS is a special place. It is upscale in its food, atmosphere, and service. This particular night we went there at the last minute having been shopping in the area. We hadn't been here for a couple of years. Again, they didn't disappoint us.

We were quickly seated when we arrived. However, we were left to sit and wait too long on several occasions..long wait to order, long wait for food to arrive, even longer wait for our bill...it just got a little annoying. The seared scallops were nicely seasoned and prepared but the pasta with sun dried tomatoes and olives was far too... More

This restaurant has some of the best Italian-style dishes in Cleveland. The menu does not really contain the usual Italian comfort food dishes that I was brought up on (2 Italian born grandmothers), which can be found throughout Little Italy for much better prices, but it does offer wonderfully prepared, more complex dishes that evoke and extend the flavors I...

There is better Italian food in little Italy and Cleveland for what they charge. As other 3-star reviews say, it's okay. At those prices it should be better. Risotto came out cold, made with tomato sauce instead of cream. Nah. Lobster mushrooms are okay but not all the rave. The server (best part of the meal) raves about the tiramisu.... More
