    I have been going to Michelangelo for years now. One of my favorite things about the restaurant is the ambiance, it's quiet, dimly lit and romantic. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable. It's nice that it's actually on the Northwest side of Tucson instead of central where most of the better restaurants are, which makes it conveniently located for those of us who live North of Ina road. I will definitely be back.

    After twenty years of enjoying fine dishes at this restaurant, their signature dish pescatore was a big disappointment for the first time. Some ingredients were not available for this dish, the broth was weak and the seafood was cool. Hopefully they will get back to their usual high standards by our next visit.

    This was our first time at Michelangelo. What a true delight. My wife had the traditional lasagna and I had the pork tenderloin special of the night. Having tasted her huge portion of lasagna I agreed it was one of the best ever. My tenderloin meal was simply delicious, I hated to see it end. It was so tender and had a thin, but very tasty filling that was fabulous, served with potatoes and brussel sprouts. We had a great bottle of wine (moderate price at $28) and the coffee to end the meal was fresh, first rate and hot. When the dessert tray was presented we were too full to indulge, but it looked as wonderful as the meal. We were sorry we had no room. Michelangelo will definitely be on the rotation next visit to the area.

    So I recently went to michelagelos after about 2 years. Everytime I am here I always enjoy myself. I always forget about that this place exists. Lol. However my friends and I went there and had some wonderful food. I had one of their lasagnas and beet salad ending with their chocolate cake. Everything was superb and our server Steve and the young girl bussed were both a delight. I will definately be back more often for sure!!

    The Caesar salad was bagged lettuce complete with brown edges on the Romaine stems and a very dull dressing. Canned mushrooms in the Marsala sauce - really? The host/manager stayed in the bar watching TV all night - couldn't be bothered to even say good bye or thank you to the few diners that were there.

    This restaurant is focused on pleasing it's customers! I made reservations for eight only an hour before desiring to be seated. The website reservation link was very easy to use. The staff put every effort into making our visit enjoyable. The food was outstanding. I'm from New Jersey where there are an abundance of good competing Italian restaurants. Michaelangelo is certainly one of the best I've patronized. I hope the folks in Tucson appreciate a place such as this having good Italian food.

    I have had difficulty in the past with dairy allergy and ordering food at this establishment. This was not the case Saturday evening or Tuesday evening. Saturday evening dinner was a group birthday party and I was accommodated quickly and efficiently. Tuesday was dinner with friends and to say we were all pleased would be an understatement. We were satisfied in every sense of the word.

    My friends and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The portions are quite large, we all took a "to go" box home. Since we hadn't seen each other for quite some time we were playing "catch up", I appreciated the fact that the staff didn't rush us!

    We were visiting Tucson to see friends from our U of A days. We wanted to find something that could handle a small group with a small child. Michelangelo's was perfect. We were there on a Monday night, so quieter than a weekend I'm sure. The bonus, however, was it was 1/2 price wine bottle night! We had excellent and accommodating service and closed the place down. Everyone had something different and no complaints from anyone- yummy! Next time we're in town, we'll be back.

    We showed up with a group of ten in Mid-afternoon on Saturday for a birthday celebration, next to no notice to the restaurant. They quickly got us set up for marvelous meal. Everyone thought their food was excellent, and the servers were friendly and helpful. This was excellent choice for us and we would highly recommend Michelangelo to anyone looking for good food in a nice setting.

    After having driven by this restaurant since the day they opened I finally decided to eat here. The food was great and the staff was very nice. My only complaint is that I felt like we were being rushed to order dinner even though they were far from full. I asked the waitress to give us more time to enjoy our wine and visit with our dinner companions before ordering. She returned exactly 2 minutes later and started taking orders.

    Dined on 4/27/2013
    Food was quite good, mostly southern Italian (lots of red sauce). Good variety of pasta and cooked just right. Interesting bread (think small cinnamon rolls only garlic bread), salads, little too heavy on dressing (get it on the side). You can build your own pasta dish and salad at lunch...don't know about dinner. Nice shaded back patio. Not the elegant, delicate cuisine you get at Vivace, but if you've been watching re-runs of the Sopranos and crave some good southern Italian red pasta dishes, this place fills the bill.
