    This is a family & girl friend favorite. Great service. Tasty food. Excellent pricing. Their staff is super accommodating & friendly. I suggest reservations. It’s always busy & definitely a Tucson & Oro Valley favorite. I might add their desserts are tempting & don’t forget to get some Italian cookies to take home. Yum! Enjoy. Buon Appetito!

    We loved the food. Our server Lauren was attendant but not intrusive. The only complaint was the noise level. Hard to control that with the high ceilings and sound reflective material thereon. However, the server station was directly behind us and unfortunately, a location where servers carried on fairly long, loud conversations that were often punctuated with even louder laughter and not necessarily work focused.

    Good service, nice menu and reasonable prices. My husband did not enjoy the Porchetta, dry and heavy. I liked the lighter version of the eggplant parmigiana. The complimentary Italian bread was very good.

    First time at this place. We had a 5:30 rez for 2 on a Thursday night -- silly me, I thought that would be a good idea -- but were unlucky enough to be seated in a booth smack up against the back of the hostess/cashier station. (There is seating in a quieter area with more subdued lighting but guess you either have to be lucky to get that or know to request it ahead of time.) Yes, it was an extremely busy and noisy place to be -- numerous servers rushing past all the time (I will say the service was excellent). The lighting was too bright, but given the location next to the hostess station ... The caprese salad was very good. The bolognese I thought was ho-hum and pasta a tad overcooked. Meatballs: yech. The red wine I ordered arrived seemingly right out of the refrigerator: cool wine is fine; cold -- no. Wouldn't recommend without a lot of caveats.

    Bust, bustling and full of energy, this place is popular for a reason. Our service was excellent and the food was delicious. You would never expect what is inside the doors of this location and the modest exterior. Enjoy the surprise!

    Interesting dinner with my 94 year old mom here tonight. The restaurant was very busy and noisy with staff running around everywhere. It’s good to see business is booming in most places we have gone to. For dinner my mom and I split their yellow beet salad, traditional lasagna and tiramisu. We found all the food good not great but we enjoyed our meal. Our waiter (server 1076 Keith F) on the other hand was a piece of work. Barely a friendly tone but got our food out in reasonable time. However when it was time for us to leave I put my credit card on the table for him to grab. He walked past us multiple times until I finally pointed to the card for him to take. Instead he actually said ‘you aren’t the only table I have’ and walked away. He finally took care of the check and we got up to leave. Then as we were walking out the front door he came up to us and said ‘you don’t get to keep the magnet’. My mom and I both said ‘what magnet?’. Apparently they put a magnet on their metal check tray to hold the bill and receipts on. There was no magnet on ours and we were insulted by his accusation. There are plenty of Italian restaurants around the area so we will be going to those in the future.

    We had a delicious meal. The me. Enjoyed two different pizzas and I the Pasta alla Norma. The service was great. Best tiramisu I have ever eaten. The carrot cake slice could feed a family of four!! The generous wine portions were impressive. Great way to spend a birthday dinner. Thank you.

    We met friends there for lunch. We all live out of town and none of us had previously eaten there. It turned out to be a great choice. We all enjoyed pizza and iced teas. Our waitress was very attentive. Our friends ordered chocolate cake to go - it looked amazing! We all agreed we’d eat there again next time we’re in the area.

    Requested a preference to be seated away from a service area and the kitchen access for 2 6:15P reservation for a party of 4. Seated 6' from a staff service area, but away from the kitchen. The restaurant was not full at this time... So much for a "please request". I would recommend this restaurant, just be careful what you request. Doubtful adherence.

    As usual, food was awesome. We ate on the back patio that had new heaters which made it pleasant. Outdoors also meant less noise which became evident when leaving through the main dining area. Our only downside was a slight inattentiveness by our waitress who brought out the salads after we reminded her but just minutes before the entrees were served. Better awareness would have been appreciated. Otherwise a great meal as usual....

    We really enjoy our meals at Bottega Michelangelo’s. The food is excellent as is the service. It does tend to be quite noisy which is why when the weather permits we prefer to sit on the patio.

    Perhaps it was the bottom of the batch, but their soup was so salty. The main dish of eggplant parm had too much cheese, and wasn't remarkable. The bolognese is not a bolognese, it's just a meat sauce. But the staff and ambience was very nice. Service slow. Not sure I will give it another chance.
