The service was horrible. We walked in the waiter never smiled or talked about specials. We ordered quickly. Presentation was awful. Waiter proceeded to bring the bill and the dessert menu. No explanation. We paid and walked out in 25 minutes. We went straight to Charro Vida had some appetizers to make up for the food we just left. This waiter must hate his job. Also the girls at the front didn’t blink an eye when I complained. It will be a rainy day before I go spend money at this restaurant.

Thankfully, we were seated in a separate room as opposed to our previous visits where we felt we had to compete with other tables for our conversation. Next time we will request that spot. But we keep going back for the excellent food, superb service, and local setting that encourages comfort and joy. It is our "go to" place for a lovely night away from my kitchen duties. Nice to go out and taste something better than I would create st home. Really a treat, especially the desserts! Highly recommended and a promise not to disappoint.

Busy on a Friday evening -- had to wait 15 minutes despite holding a reservation. Ambience is open and airy, much better than before the remodeling. Food was good but not as tasty as other Italian restaurants. We were disappointed that the Happy Hour pricing was only available in the bar, not the restaurant.

Everything was fantastic except for our server. Although she was very nice, it was very clear that she was new and not quite ready to be on her own. The manager on duty should have remedied this, especially after a table nearby us complained about it.

Very, very crowded and noisy. Our wait person was forgetful, seemed in a fog and just couldn’t get our order straight.
Food really good- eggplant rollitini and Brussels sprouts...both cooked to perfection.
Will return and avoid the waitress we had.

We were a party of nine enjoying a celebratory lunch. We were very well taken care of and everybody enjoyed their meal. The quality of the food was good and prices were reasonable. They were even nice enough to take a picture of us! The space is open and airy and we didn’t notice any noise from other diners. My only concern is that instead of pouring water they put carafes on the table- initially 2 for 9 people. We kept having to ask for them to be refilled. When we sat down there were 2 bread baskets with olive oil and tapenade- but only 6 sleep slices of bread for 9 people. Other than that, all was good.

We had brunch at Bottega Michelangelo and LOVED it! Two of us had "My Cousin Benny" - eggs benedict with pancetta, avocado and, of course, decadent hollandaise sauce served over cauliflower cakes! You read that correctly - no boring English muffins, but riced cauliflower that was formed into patties and fried - FABULOUS! One of the best breakfast dishes I ever ate! Another in our group had the frittata which she claimed as excellent, and even the burger got rave reviews.

Our server was attentive and charming. She brought complimentary mini pistachio muffins to start us out, and they were delicious. The only "miss" was the decor of the "new" Michelangelo's. It wasn't warm and friendly; just kind of industrial looking with lots of gray, white and a little bit of bright blue. Even the artwork was gray and white. I think a splash of color would liven the place up a lot.

The restaurant was nearly empty - we really hope brunch will be successful for them because we can't wait to go back for more. The last time we were here it was for Happy Hour which we didn't enjoy at all because it was super crowded and extremely noisy.

Had lunch here at this charming restaurant. The service was fine. Very nice, varied menu. Quite a large offering of food items. I ordered the Eggplant Rotini and 2 meatballs, which were quite large, but very moist and delicious. Other items ordered at the table were, a Cobb salad, rigatoni with gorgonzola cream sauce and spaghetti and meatballs.
All orders, very large in size.
Everyone took take home boxes.
The outside patio is quite large and so inviting! Will sit their the next time!
They have a full bar and a Happy Hour.
Will definitely return to this restaurant!!

Always great here. Food is fabulous from cheesy bread to appetizers to pasta and their salmon. My favorite is the tortelloni with cask tan chili cream sauce. Always very accommodating to special requests. Servers very attentive, had Donald this time. Only complaint is they were out of the Malbec and the Zin.

We visit Bottega Michaelangelo frequently and have never been disappointed. Wife chose this restaurant for Mother's day and I was somewhat apprehensive about what we know would be a big crowd.

To our pleasant surprise, are concerns were unfounded. The place was packed, but the augmented staff was prepared and even though we were there in the early evening, our waitress was smiling, friendly and totally efficient.

I tend to observe such things, and it was impressive to see how well the staff worked together. We had a few requests and several different staff members efficiently responded. I could see our waitress talking with different members of the staff. Despite the crowd, we never felt rushed. We were in and out in a comfortable hour, including our favorite Tiramisu dessert. Yes, the noise level was high, but given the size of the crowd, it wasn't bad enough to keep us from enjoying our meal!

The food was good, I had the peach waffles and they were delicious, but the service was very slow, it took over an hour to get our meal. Also, there was a mix-up with our reservation, they couldn't find it and then they said they had given our table to another party who said they had the same last name as mine. They ended up accommodating us, but it was embarrassing and this caused a delay in the entrance. I would recommend, but I think they need to work on some of these details.
