Visited on a Saturday night. Someone called off so the staff had to hustle. Food service was a bit slow, but nothing that upset me. Food was terrific. We had the mussels with pasta, veal Marsala, & stuffed chicken. All of it was delicious. Our server, Sarah, hustled and provided friendly wonderful service.

Food was ok,.Bread was reheated white bread. Salad was soaked in dressing. My dish was a strange version of chicken parm, but called something else, but it WAS chicken parm with out bread crumbs on the chicken. It wasnt the best italian food I've had.

Every time we go to Bella Michael's we have enjoyed delicious food. We even took two fussy eaters there and they both ate more than usual and praised the restaurant. One reviewer said the service was slow which may be true. I know they are actually cooking the food, not popping it in the convention oven. This is a place to enjoy a drink, talk and eat.

The food is good, but the service was incredibly slow both times we ate here. We tried it once years ago, and were seated two hours before we needed to be elsewhere, but we were still late to our show since it took so long to be served our meals. Their excuse that night was that they were "busy." So we didn't go back until recently. This time we went for lunch and were seated just a few minutes after noon. Although they had very few customers, we still didn't have our food by 12:45, so we had to have them package it to go, since we had to get back to work! The other annoyance was the incredibly loud crashing and banging from what I assume was the dishwashing area. It went on and on, as if someone were repeatedly dumping several loads of dishes from a high height. When it was mentioned to two servers, neither one made any effort to go to the dishwasher and ask them to try to be quieter. One of the only other customers there for lunch complained that she had gone there to have some peace and quiet at lunch, and she certainly wasn't getting that. I doubt we'll go back again for a very, very long time.

Must try the seafood chowder. Loaded with mussels, clams, shrimp and calamari.,. Delicious and the cup is like most places' bowls... Bowl must be enough for a meal itself. Owner walking around and interacting with customers... Old school feel and service. Would hit again if in the area
