My wife and stopped in for dinner Friday night. As always, we were greeted by the staff and quickly seated in the dinning room. We love this place and visit once a month or so. What we truly enjoy is the "family" atmosphere and the "old school" dining Michelinos still provides to its clientele. No too many places offer white... More

I went to the place to celebrate my mother's birthday. They offered kind of special deal for the night which we accepted. The food was nothing of the extraordinary, the price was ridiculous high and the service quite slow.Total disappointment. Never will go back again.

They make the best pizza and the best Penne in Vodka sauce. Their food is always fresh and delicious. Service is also good.

The restaurant is not the pizza shop on the corner. Keep walking down the street to find the restaurant. It was a lovely decorated place and the fire place sold me on the location. We had the very good red sangria, stuffed portobello starter, lasagna and linguine with seafood. It was very good for local fare. The waiters were friendly... More

My wife and I go out to eat every Friday. We usually gravitate to a favorite diner, but sometimes try another fare. Tonight I remembered driving past Michelino's a week or so ago. I said I thought they had good pizza. When I looked online a realized there was also a restaurant. So reading the great reviews we decided to... More

Came here for dinner for a work meeting. Completely amazing! We were looking for a central place to meet between south Jersey and NYC. Chose this place to avoid the trek into the city. Well.....

Being in town on business from Texas, wanted to find some great Italian food for lunch, so we looked to the trusted Trip Advisor for a place to eat! No disappointment here (after seeing all the great reviews by others on TA)! So after being seated by Karen (our server), we gave our drink order, looked at the daily specials... More
