Looking for Italian without the frills and a BYOB, then this is the place. The menu is extensive and there are lots of daily specials. We met our son and his friend on a Saturday night at 5:30 and it wasn't very crowded but more crowded when we left at 7:30. We started with the seafood salad for two which... More

We really enjoyed ALL the food at this Hobo restaurant. However, this is not a dining experience restaurant. Tables are ful, service is quick and good but rushed. This is a. Food factory that pumps out lot of GOOD food. I would suggest off hours and off days to be able to enjoy a dining experience as opposed to having... More

The food and service is great, but the atmosphere is a little cramped but it's still my favorite. It's a BYOB restaurant so it makes it more affordable if you want to have some drinks with your dinner. My favorite dishes are the Penne Arrabiata and Chicken Murphy. My husband loves the lasagna which is not always on the menu.... More

I have been here many times and the food is always delicious and very consistent. The service is the absolute best. Vincenzo is absolutely wonderful, he knows what you want before you do. If you want to feel very special, go to Cafe Michelina's.

I have been going here on a regular basis for 7-8 years now. They have consistently good food with a pleasant and attentive wait staff. It's a great place for groups and couples. The decor and the dining room are no frills, but you will not be disappointed by the food here. It is BYO so make sure you bring... More

Just one block off the main drag tucked on the corner street you will find this hidden gem. Limited inside seating and a few tables on the outside. Reservations is a must or risk the wait. Check the daily specials on the dry erase board by the kitchen or order from the menu. Appetizers were good but nothing special. The... More

We got carry out Spaghetti and Meatballs and Penne Vodka. They delivered very fast. Portion size was enough for two meals. The entrees were good with the Vodka Sauce being the best. We could have used some Parmesan cheese to make dish a little better.

Consistently good, off the beaten track (ie. Washington Street), old school Hoboken authentic Italian with huge portions and attentive friendly servers. You can't go wrong here! My fav Italian in Hoboken!

I've lived in Hoboken for 16 years and just kept not quite making it to Cafe Michelina. Part of the reason is that there's no shortage of Italian restaurants and pizza places in town and there are only so many days in the year to go out and try to hit everything. We finally made it this past Saturday, on... More
