I've always loved Miceli's and go at least once a year. The food is consistently terrific, no matter what I order. I'm impressed with the remarkable musical talent of the wait staff who could easily be on the theater stage and enjoy their wide repertoire of songs. When you make a reservation, they get you seated on time. This last visit, however, it was terribly noisy. The microphones and speakers for the performers seemed to be turned on low volume because I could barely hear the music and vocalists. I've been there several times during busy Saturday and Friday nights and could always hear the music just fine. Perhaps there were unusually rowdy patrons that night. I've been there for lunch when there were no performers and the food is terrific even if you don't get the live musical show.

My family and I really enjoyed the ambiance and happy atmosphere at Miceli's-Universal. We celebrated my daughter's 20th bd party there. The waiters sang "Happy BD" to my daughter in both Italian and English. The food was also pretty good and the environment and service was great.

Miceli's, hasn't changed much over the years. The portions are large, the food is traditional old school Italian. It's good, not amazing if you like fresher, lighter fare. But if you want a big bowl of pasta and some Chianti, and singing and atmosphere - you'll be happy.

We were three friends getting together after not seeing each other for a few years. One of us had two children - an infant and a toddler. We went for an early lunch in the restaurant which was very quiet (at that time) and our server was very accommodating as well as entertaining the children. We had a great time and though we left a mess (the rambunctious toddler would not sit still), staff was more than happy to take care of us. It was good comfort food and we all enjoyed our entrees. Our waitperson really made our day by being very sweet to the children.

We were seated right next to a birthday party of 15 girls and 2 boys! And when the did the cake it was right in front of our table, and when they left we had to deal with a 20 minute exodus! Oy Vay! Plus our server was mediocre. It was as though we were given to her last minute. She wasn't as attentive as I like my servers to be. And I tip VERY WELL when the service is stellar. And she didn't even serenade us and we were seated close to the band stand. Oh well. Next time we're going for the lovers balcony. In my opinion that's the only way I will be satisfied.

The singing waiters are fabulous! If for some reason you dont like the food, the waiters are worth the visit. You cant beat the price with entertainment.

This place has such a great feel to it. The decor made me feel like I was in a movie set. The staff sings to you! They're all singers, every single one! It was so beautiful to hear them sing. It may be awkward for some people - being sang to is not for everyone. However, I enjoyed it and it normally makes me feel uncomfortable. Keep that in mind.
The food is delicious, fresh, and very filling! If you're a group of two, stay with one pizza! We ordered two and barely made a dent.

stopped in for dinner on a weekend. they have singing waiters which can get kind of loud with a drummer and piano player. I tried the spaghetti & meatballs - meatballs were mushy and bland even though our waiter gave them an enthusiastic recommendation. my wife had a chicken milanese which was okay. Waiter was friendly which helped. wanted to like the place more. oh well...

This is a feel good place. One of our favs to bring visitors to.
The food's good, but it's the whole experience. Our waitress took our order, then went up to the piano, and belted out a Broadway showstopper!
The whole staff was real friendly, except for the piano player. He played well, but seemed to be in a grouchy mood. Whatever, we'll be back. There's no place like it.
