Valentine's for me, partner, sister in law and mother in law. Reservations were good. Got our table on time- actually waiting for us. The only thing is that our waiter told us that we were confined to the Valentine's menu for dinner but after an hour I heard a lady in the next table ordering a dish from the menu.

We came here after some research for authentic Italian cuisine with a high rating. We have been to Italy and this restaurant reminded us of being in Italy and enjoying fine Italian cuisine. I would recommend this restaurant located in Silver Lake, CA.

Waited 1.5 hours for entree. Did not come till 10:15. At no time did anyone apologize for the delay. We had two children at the table! Nor did they comp even a single glass of wine to keep the customers happy. Understanding that it was Xmas night, and they might be in the weeds, we were not rude but concerned. The food was totally sub par and for Parmesan, plops a jar of clearly not fresh cheese down. Everything was total crap. We were totally dumbfounded by the experience.

The service was terrible and the food sucked. The hostess sat a party that arrived after us even though my party arrived first, our groups had the same amount of people, and we had reservations. It took 15 minutes for a server to greet us and even longer to get water. It took over an hour to get our food for a party of two. The servers were unapologetic and nowhere to be found. I live right down the street and I’m never going there again.

What a surprise! They were open during Christmas. I enjoyed the veal dish. The service was excellent. It was relaxing to sit outside on the covered patio. The best Italian cuisine in Silver Lake.

The food was excellent, and the enviroment was cozy. Staff was also friendly. My only issue was the price of the salads. The soups are a better value, yet when a salad prior to the meal costs almost as much as a dinner I take notice. Lowering the salads by a few dollars seems like a more prudent move.

Michelangelo's has been one of my favorite restaurants for 20 years. The food is excellent - basically if it sounds good on the menu the execution will be mouth watering. The service is attentive and personal but never intrusive. You can have a quick bite if you need to but if you want a leisurely dinner with a friend where you talk the night away, they will not rush you. I always love the soups and the salads are delicious (the grilled mushrooms on the Insalata Funghi are addictive and I almost always order it!). The pasta is always perfectly dressed and seasoned. I don't eat meat, but I am told these dishes are delicious as well. The decor is lovely too. Highly recommended!

A very charming, hip yet cozy, Italian restaurant in Silverlake. The decor is homey without being stodgy or dated, and the vibe is intimate. Great selection of pasta dishes and other mains. The tomato soup was perfectly seasoned and flavorful and the Penne Arrabbiata was spicy heaven. Very attentive service also make for a great experience.

Very much a middle of the road dining experience. Not bad by any means but nothing special either especially at this price point. In addition to that, when we rec the bill an extra $3 was snuck in for extra pizza sauce without informing us ahead of time. Now $3 isn't much and after paying the bill I mentioned to the waiter that going forward he should inform customers of additional charges so there are no surprises. His response was you should know it's extra. Anyway, it's a coin flip if you're desperate for Italian and cannot venture too far.

The "Michelangelo family"has been in the Silverlake district for many years. It started at the South End of the reservoir and I was thrilled when they moved to Rowena. It's a much larger space for them too so good all around. The family-run business is very professional. The children are good restaurateurs and the mother is a wonderful chef. I always enjoy coming here!
