Been coming here for years and had my engagement party and wife's baby shower here. The food is amazing. Sadly, I haven't tried too many things on the menu because I always get my same favorites, they are too good not to get (penne alla vodka and chicken franchese). The owner Michael is a true restaurateur in the way he... More

Excellent appetizers - crispy calamari, eggplant rollatini, mozzarella & peppers, salad, ziti & sauce, dinner choices - chicken Marsala, broccoli and potato, steak and vegetables or fish. Every dish was delicious. A special anniversary cake and coffee were served by the staff. This restaurant also serves regular dinners. Exceptional service

I've been to Michael's on a few occasions and the food and service are average for the most part. Nothing really special at all. Very close by there are much better options for Italian food or fish. Gelone's, Lassoni, Angelo's are all much better options and the food and service are much better there.

I love this place for a quick casual meal ... we go early with our children (4 and 6 years old) and they "make their own pizza" but order that when you first come in so they can get it in the oven! Food is good... comes out quick and I have never had bad service ...wait staff always friendly.... More

Michael and his staff took great care of us at my Dad's repast. He went over and above to help us give my Dad a great send off. We were very happy.
