As always amazing. Even during a pandemic, everything was just as wonderful as ever.. yet safe. I felt very comfortable indoors. This place has my heart as being my family's favorite restaurant for 50 years. The most amazing Italian food ever. Such wonderful and attentive service.

My dinner that I had was the spaghetti with Shrimp and Crabmeat was delicious and very good. Not only this but the dessert were good too. Especially the sorbet. It was best I ever had. Also we had the brownie with the carmel cone ice cream which was very good.

Michaels of Brooklyn is a must if you want top notch Italian food in a socially distant safe environment. The tent is carpeted and it felt like we were eating indoors

I had a big birthday this year and was not looking forward to it due to COVID. My family took me to dinner at Michael's and the experience could not have been better!! I was disappointed at the thought of having a birthday dinner in a parking lot, but once we arrived, I forgot where we were. The transformed the lot with flowers and tables with umbrellas over them and the ambience was absolutely lovely!! The food was outstanding, as usual; our waiter could not have been nicer or more helpful, even asking if we wanted pictures taken of our entire party. I've been out to 3 restaurants in the area during COVID and the experience at Michael's was the nicest by far!!

It was great! However, we ended up getting artichokes instead of our zucchini flowers. I make them at home and I love trying new ones when we go out. But the artichokes were yummy!! Definitely will be back.

Neighborhood staple still delivering a high quality product. So impressed with how incredibly fresh everything was from the crabmeat avocado salad, to the salmon with a mustard/ dill sauce, to the freshest and flavorful vegetables. Service was excellent. The outdoor space is lovely and glad to see them practicing appropriate heath precautions. Hope to get there again before the weather gets too cold.

Despite the Covid restrictions and the heat, our server, Jeff, made us as comfortable as possible outside with the huge fans they had set up, and the food and service were excellent! Can’t wait to eat there again the next time we’re in the area.

Amazing food comes out in portions to last two days. Very old school service by a black-tie staff that’s also extremely friendly and relaxed. Nice welcoming space with a big parking lot out back. Prices totally reasonable. List of daily specials longer than the menu itself. Will definitely be back.

This is authentic Italian in Brooklyn. Not only is the food spectacular, you feel like you are in a movie. It’s the ultimate dining experience and my family and I had a blast. This is where they make the special “sauce”. So we went home with a few jars of sauce, some pasta, and even some desserts from their bakery next door. This is a must eat! And a highlight of our trip.

Now that we've experienced the situation, we will know how to order. It's a bit pricey. If it were a bit more moderate we would frequent the restaurant more often.
