    Mostly a great experience. Server was pleasant and attentive, all of us enjoyed our food. Where they fell short was their wine selection. Us girls wanted Prosecco- out of it. Guys first 2 red bottle choices were also unavailable.

    I wanted to give them more stars but a couple things were off. First, the pros. We were seated (with reservation) fairly promptly, despite it being packed, at a nice corner booth. We had a knowledgeable, attentive waiter (though I wished he had noticed we had only one fork for the dessert we were sharing). Nice wine list by the glass and my husband had a great Negroni. Super cannoli for dessert, and good amarena cherry gelato. I ordered the orrchiette pasta with sausage and broccoli rabe pesto which was tasty. Cons: My husband ordered the linguine vongole, one of his favorite dishes, but it was very, very fishy smelling. Maybe it was the fish stock, but it was offputting. I ordered the most expensive glass of red wine (the Dhou at $20) and it was served chilled within an inch of its life, as was the glass. That is just not ok. Finally, the portions were enormous and easily could have served three people each. I realize some people like that, but it seems like a lot of food gets wasted if people don’t want to take it home. Finally, the courses came out awfully fast and that made us feel rushed. We would nonetheless likely go back and give them another try if we lived here.

    Catching up with old friends, dinner was delightful. We all felt that the service could have been a bit better. We felt the server was very busy with numerous tables. The place was hopping and energetic. That created a very loud and noisy environment But you get that noise with all the energy. Food was exceptional. Reservations are a must. We noticed the tables changed over quickly. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves. Just expect a noisy atmosphere and a busy environment.

    The only complaint we have is the noise level (not energetic) is always loud. My guess is it’s due to the building construction. Otherwise, the food and service is always very good.

    We ordered appetizers to be followed by dinner. After a lengthy delay, our dinners were brought out first. The dinners were taken back, and our appetizers were brought cold. We canceled the appetizers. The orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe pesto was creative and well prepared,, but the chicken Parmesan was very average. The manager did give us a complementary dessert because of the poor service, and the Italian rum cake was excellent. Noise level was high, and could make conversation difficult. Overall, a disappointing evening.

    This was my first visit to Bottega Michelangelo. I took my wife there for our anniversary dinner. We were promptly seated and served some very tasty bread. The food was brought out quickly. My wife's chicken rigatoni was excellent. My eggplant parm was very good, but the side on spaghetti was flavorless. The server offered another pasta, but the sauce would have been the same, so it didn't make sense to wait for a new side. a nice touch was she brought out a complimentary tiramisu with "Happy Anniversary" on the plate.

    Bottega Michelangelo is always a wonderful dining experience, be it lunch or dinner. Considering our reservation was for New Year's Eve, we were not disappointed. We were seated promptly and our server (they were well staffed for the evening) was attentive but not hovering. Our meals were promptly served and delicious as always. We knew we needed to save room for dessert and we were rewarded with the flavors. Love this restaurant.

    The food was excellent and wait service was very good. The noise was not "energetic", just loud. Because there are ALOT of tables and people. We had a reservation for 7 PM but weren't seated til 30 min later. Then we were seated 8 inches from another occupied table. I noticed several empty tables that we could've had instead.
