A word from Cafe Michelangelo
Cafe Michelangelo is a full service bar and restaurant that was started by two Italian brothers, Angelo and Michael Di Sandro, who had the desire to bring a love of their food and culture to America. In 1992, they opened Cafe Michelangelo in order to do just that. Tucked away in a corner of northeast Philadelphia, Cafe Michelangelo expands into a European style hideaway. From the fully imported Italian brick oven and cafe bar, to the extensive outdoor seating shaded by grape vines, and including two outdoor bocce courts, Cafe Michelangelo brings you right to the hills of Italy. The expansive size of the restaurant also provides the opportunity to accommodate a variety of events including live bands, dancing, reunions, and private parties.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Out of all the NE Philly Itatlian restaurants, this has to be one of the best. Everything was really good, nothing was too garlicky, too salty, or too buttery which is rare for some Italian places. If anything, a pinch of salt would have made everything perfect but otherwise everything tasted fresh and delicious."

  • "I live across the street from a pizzeria, but drive half an hour for Cafe Michelangelo's pizza. Another fantastic meal!"

  • "The pasta was pretty bland. Nothing to write home about. I took one of my newly appointed and hired managers there. I much preferred him to have a taste of Philadelphia that danced on his pallet but it more so dragged over my taste buds."

  • "Eight of us went to Michelangelo's to celebrate my husband's birthday. When we walked into the atrium area where our table was set up, we were greeted by the beautiful sounds of a female singer/keyboard player. Later, since it was St. Patrick's Day weekend, we were further entertained by some Irish Dancers and accompanying music. All eight of us really enjoyed our food - and we ordered a great variety of food. I'd say it was a very lovely experience all around, and we're all looking forward to going back there in the warmer weather when we can experience the outdoor dining."

  • "kind of thought it would be more of a fine dining spot. Good food, but better suited for kids and lunch. Wine was reasonable and a pretty good selection."

  • "Who would have known the whole experience of this restaurant from the street view of a strip mall? But it is more then that as Michelangelo's makes the most of their surrounding land with an outside bar and dinning area with live music which set a great mood for valentine's day. The weather had been snowing the prior weeks so the full outside experience was not available. From what we could tell, the outside vineyard like hang out only added to the mystique of the NE Philly gem. My fiance and I shared a dinner for 2 of lobster, steak and pasta. The lobster was stuffed with flavor and the steak melted in my mouth. We plan on going back in the summer when the outside is open and plan to take part in some of the brick oven pizza."

  • "My wife and I chose Cafe Michelangelos based on the wide variety of pasta dishes for my picky wife and the easily accessible location in the Northeast. She had the penne vodka and shocked me by wanting to take home the leftovers. I had some fish that hit the spot. We will definitely go back and look forward to sitting outside in the laid back outdoor area near the bar."

  • "As soon as we steeped across the threshold my husband and I were treated as though we were the only diners that evening. The wait staff as extremely attentive; Coupled with the food presentation and wonderful taste AND GREAT SERVICE, we truly enjoyed out experience. Highly recommend this establishment. We usually travel out of the area to eat authentic Italian food. It seems we can now save gas money!"

  • "This restaurant was good for a moderately priced restaurant. The portions were generous and the food was tasty. The server (who I believe was the owner or manager) could have had a little more personality. He had no expression at all as he served."

  • "Sauce was not great and portions were small. Service was terrible, slow, wrong drinks brought out and I saw lots of wrong food come out to other tables and had to be sent back."
