Bottega Michelangelo Ratings and Reviews
In this city of Tucson there are many really good restaurants. This is certainly one of them. My wife and I had a wonderful dinner last night and we were both thoroughly impressed with the food and service. Got seated immediately and despite the moderate noise, we were able to talk to each other comfortably. I was extremely pleased with my chicken parm entree and my wife loved the salmon. The chocolate mousse cake was a perfect end to the meal. And the price was vey reasonable at just over $30 per person. Highly recommended!
The place ran like a well-oiled machine. Food came out quickly, drinks were never empty, and the waiter was friendly and efficient. The meal was great; everything from the cheese board to the veal and ahi tuna to the dessert! We will definitely keep it on our date night list.
For a pre Valentine's day dinner I made reservations at this restaurant, while the food was very good, once we were seated it took 20 minutes and a complaint to the hostess for our waiter to arrive and ask us what we wanted to drink. The restaurant wasn't busy and we saw waiters standing around and talking.
Had a reservation for 3 at 7:15. We were seated after 7:30. Very crowded. Kitchen seemed overwhelmed. Food was excellent, but took over an hour from the time of ordering. Our party of three was provided a complimentary dessert sample in recognition of the delay. The food was great, just took a long time.
We went for brunch. The food was great! The lemon ricotta pancakes were amazing, and tasted great, even without syrup! There was an Eggs Benedict item that was low carb, because a cauliflower patty was used instead of an English muffin! Everyone at the table loved their food. Our 10 year old loved his mac and cheese! We will definitely go back again! Delicious!
We have been going to Michael Angelos for decades. We could always count on excellent food, comfortable ambiance and good service. We had not been there in a few months, as we now live about one hour away, but were looking forward to a reunion with friends for dinner. What a terrible surprise. The restaurant had been totally re decorated. Seating options were changed, the entire place re designed. It was loud and a little chintzy, compared to the previous elegant, comfortable design. Ok....we were still looking forward to the food. Sadly, a serious disappointment. The appetizers of bruchetta, white anchovies and calamari were not nearly up to their previous standard. The bruchetta had virtually no seasoning (garlic was notably missing). The anchovies were served thrown on a plate with no presentation. They seemed old. The calimari was tough. Also disappointing was the portion size....barely adequate for one person. Our entrees continued the trend of bland and small portion size....hardly what one expects from an Italian restaurant. My clams and linguini had exactly five manila clams. The portion size was adequate for a small child who was not hungry. The rest of my party had various pasta dishes, the sauce of which seemed little more than tomato paste. The deserts were displayed as one entered the restaurant and looked delicious. We ordered the chocolate cake and a lemon cake offering. Both were so dry as to be inedible.
This is really a tragedy.....a once great restaurant ruined. I do not know if there was a change of ownership, but unfortunately, we will not return.
The decor and outside patio are very nice. It was very clean and the service was quite good. We went at 4:00 so it was very quiet and not noisy at all. The lasagna and the eggplant Parmesan were too salty and the sauce was nothing to brag about. The bread was good and so was the Chianti wine. We liked the chocolate mousse desert. That was the best part of the meal.
Ordered a vegetable side which was never served, even after several requests. Ordered a side of rolls (supposedly a house favorite); those were served after we were finished with the entrees and the table had been cleared. The entrees (chicken parmigiana) were of poor quality chicken, tough, and overcooked. Our waitress disappeared for some time and we had to ask another employee to find her to bring our check. Avoid this place.
I have enjoyed dining here probably a dozen times in the last 25 years.
The old decor was much friendlier, quieter and cozy.
The waiter came on as friendly but had trouble remembering when we asked for more bread and to refill our drinks.
Three of us had eggplant which was delicious.
