We have dined here many times and are always impressed by the food and excellent service. Add very reasonable prices and you can't go wrong. Two glasses of special wines, Baked French Onion Soup (the best I have ever had, I always order if on the menu), Goat Cheese Ravioli, Lobster Cannelloni, salad. All for $64 ! Plus they always...

I bought a Groupon to try for here. Nice place inside. The service was great our waitress was very attentive the whole time. We tried the pasta platter & the cheesy garlic 🍞bread was scrumptious! We also tried a new dessert creme brulee that was also yummy. Everything was prepared well.

Looking for a new place to try, we headed to Michael's following good reviews. Worth the trip. The potato soup was very tasty and salad was fresh greens with assorted veggies. Hubby had baked mostaccioli with meat sauce- dinner tonight & lunch tomorrow. A favorite of mine, chicken Marsala, was moist/tender smothered in sauce & mushrooms. The side of sautéed... More

The only consistency is that it is always freezing cold! The dinners I think are a bit overpriced and the pizza is just average... The cocktails are most definitely overpriced!

Although service was lacking. Was seated and waited 7 minutes for my waiter to show up and get me a drink. After that service was Goff, but it was sloooowww to start. The meal was fresh Italian and was very good.

Was seated on a weeknight at a table. Literally sat without anyone approaching us ... Not even for something to drink. Watched at least 5 tables get seated after us and all receiving drinks, orders taken, and bread. Tried multiple times to get the attention of a server to no avail. Finally I went to hostess to ask for a... More

Michael's is a great place for pizza. We have eaten in and do take out. Pizza is always good. Service is pleasant. Sometime the wait is long depending on the crowd. Michael's is definetly one of our go to places for our favorite pizza.

The staff has consistently been nice, and the drinks are good. Would say it's a value (depending how many drinks you get) for a nice dinner out.
