Loved the food, service, and atmosphere. Wish it was closer but, even with 30 minutes of taxi travel each way, we will definitely be making dinners at Michael’s as frequent as possible. Can’t say enough about the staff - top notch!

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.

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!
