We've dined there many-many times over the years. I know the owner, and hes always been able to squeeze us in, even if we made reservations at the last minute. He staffs his place with excellent waiters, ( who know how to treat customers), and excellent chefs.

He comes around and visits all the tables, that's the, "Old World" way of doing things, kind of like how a, hand shake was all you needed at one time.....

He always personally calls to make sure your still coming. Again, its the way of doing, good business, the " Old Fashioned Way"!!!

Everything was excellent from the properly made drinks at the bar (Hendricks martini w/splash) to the dining. Our waiter Gary was great. The food was delicious with a nice presentation. I had the French cut chicken Marsala as a special. It should be added to the regular menu! The bread pudding for dessert was also top notch. A nice touch was hot milk for our coffee. We plan on putting this restaurant on our rotation! Good job!

The only issue I have is with the service. Our waiter was very personable when waiting on us but for the most part he was completely absent. He never checked in to see how our meal was going or if we wanted additional drinks. Luckily someone else was filling our water glasses. We waited 30min so I could ask for the check.

Food was very good. Service left a lot to be desired. It took us 20 minutes to get the check after flagging a server down 3 times despite having only 3 other tables with customers. They definitely need to work on service. Not sure if we'll return.

I celebrated my 56th birthday there and it was the perfect spot. The Owner was very charming and told my family some of his great meet&greets - many were shown in the pictures that adorn his hallway. The food was great - Calamari, Rice Balls, Pasta, Fish, all were amazing.

When you walk into Il Michelangelo you are greeted by the executive Chef and pictures of numerous stars who have visited. Then you are seated and treated a a very nice evening and a very nice restaurant with a reasonably sized menu of expertly prepared food. The homemade pasta is excellent. The deserts and soup as special. The marinated seafood salad is probably the best I've ever had. If you are in the area or don't mind a small amount of travel for great Italian food, you should check it out.

Old fashioned ambiance and good service, which is much appreciated and often lost in today's dining options. Plenty of entree salad options and both were good. One entry very good the other was overly spicy and not noted as "hot" on the menu; it should be. Dessert Chocolate Lava Cake very good. The house Napa Cabernet Sauvignon ($10 by the glass) was excellent.

Went for Valentine’s Day. Wanted try the restaurant. They had a $75 per person pre fix. The choices they gave we both felt where not worth $150 plus drinks and tip. So we left. We were very disappointed. Not sure we try again.

We have dined here 4 or 5 times-never on a price fix menu night. So it was Valentine's day and the food was not very good and choices not great. Appetizers great, then only a beet salad, dinners tasted mediocre. If this was our first date I would have been in big trouble. If you do not want roasted potatoes and green beans-go somewhere else. It was mobbed and got noisy as I waited a long time to get our check.

We had such a nice experience dining here. We were greeted with a friendly and welcoming hello and were seated right away. The ambiance was very warm and inviting. Each server was so nice and helpful.
Started the evening with the stuffed artichoke and the beet salad which both were delicious. The beet salad was very uniquely prepared which was great. Then the Veal Saltimbocca was tender and sauce smooth and delicious the same with the Chicken Michelangelo. Followed by dessert which there were many to choose from. I recommend the Sicilian Zeppoli with the homemade fresh cannoli filling or any of the homemade gelatos. Perfect.
Looking forward to returning soon.

The Michelangelo experience has been consistently high for years and continues to impress over and over again. The family and the staff pay meticulous attention to the guests and each experience is of the highest value! We just enjoyed a night with some old friends getting back together and the ambiance, the food and the service was impeccable! Cheers - can't wait for my next experience to occur there!!
