My wife and I have been eating at Michaels for more years then I can count. The food is excellent and the prices can't be beat. I believe that they have the best pasta sauce of any Italian restaurant and the pasta is always perfectly cooked (al dente). It is much more then just a pizza/sandwich shop. They just refinished...

Michael's tomato sauce is delicious! They don't add sugar to reduce acidity. They add carrots. Meat also reduces the tomato acidity. I'll be back. Well done Michael!

This is my goto place when i'm looking for something to eat and well typically end up getting the Grilled Chicken Salad. Super fresh and high quality ingredients, and the homemade bread they include is absolutely awesome.

I'm not sure how this place is still open. I've watched one employee (middle aged obnoxious Italian guy) wipe snot on his hands and then immediately touch the food on more than one occasion. I'm also fairly sure I saw a mouse. The place is disgusting and hasn't been cleaned or updated since the 90's. Don't let the front or... More

Great sandwiches and Italian dishes. Plentiful portions and friendly service. We enjoy the chicken parm and the steak sandwich varieties. The décor is a bit outdated, but it seems clean.

This is your classic neighborhood Italian restaurant. Great spot to take the kids on a Friday night. Easy food, easy going staff, cheap table wine and beer. Two people with a carafe of wine,entres and some mozerella garlic bread will run you about 50 bucks. All the folks are great, and they deliver if you are close by!

Have been a customer for the last 13+ years. Pizza is always good - one of best in the area and there are lots of pizza places nearby. If you like your pizza crispier, ask them to cook it a little longer. Eat-in is good though waitresses service can vary. Sandwiches, pasta and other items are good but pizza is... More

I could have used a little more in the 'portion size' and 'tastiness' categories, but otherwise, they were pretty damn good.

My lunch experience was really a nightmare. The attitudes of the two waitresses was appalling. They treated me terribly and I would never return again.
