You can tell the quality of an Italian restaurant by their complimentary bread. Theirs is the best, as is everything else.

Michael's is the place for a traditional Italian meal. Both the food and service are excellent. My friends described the atmosphere as "classic". This is the way Italian food should taste. For dessert, we shared the assorted sorbets. There were five flavors, each in an individual cup immersed in a large bowl of ice. It was impressive as well as tasty. This is the place to go for a special meal.

The food here is always great. If you never been here give it a try. You won’t be disappointed. I also would like to thank the owner for giving me a bottle of their sauce. That also tastes great.

What a great restaurant! Well prepared dishes, served hot. Add to this the breads, olives, cheese and peppers on the table beforehand. The uniquely prepared entrees and the ambience, and having dinner with good friends ... well, we closed the place down. You won't be disappointed. And, the prices were right. My dinner, with my date, with drinks and appetizers and dessert - $240 (and that's with the tip included). Well worth it. We'll be a return diner!

We love Michaels; only wish we lived closer! A few times a year, we take a ride into Brooklyn, enjoy the day and have a great meal with super service.
So glad the pandemic is behind us and they have returned. Don’t forget to go to their bakery next door!

Dinner at Michael’s is a very unique and beautiful experience. From the moment you walk in, you get a sense that you’ve gone back in time to a place where old world hospitality and grace once again exist. The staff is on top of every detail, and the food is beautifully presented, perfectly cooked and delicious. Michaels will always be my top choice for special occasions and family celebrations.

Michael’s of Brooklyn was a delight. It was like stepping into a more gracious time of beautiful dining and professional waiters. Absolutely fantastic food. The scallops wrapped in bacon just amazing and the chocolate chip cookie dessert almost TOO delicious.
We had a terrific experience.
