We love this restaurant because they serve gluten free pasta dishes and pizza! It has nice atmosphere and a separate bar if you just want to stop in for cocktails.

Very friendly staff, reasonably priced Italian dishes, consistently flavorable dishes. Great any night of the week. Be sure and try one of the many specials.

It was date night and we decided to use a Groupon and dine at Michael's. We were delighted. There are plenty of menu selections. The portions are generous. Both of our meals were very good. We will be coming back.

We stopped in on a Friday night for a fish fry and were pleasantly surprised we didn't have to wait for a table. Our waitress was prompt and quickly got our drinks and order. The baked fish was very good, but a few of the fried fish weren't tasting very good. We explained that to our waitress and she promptly... More

Although we we a large party (16), and with a very full restaurant, the food and service was first rate. Try their seafood, it's worth the price.

My book club met there and one of our members had retired that day so we started in the lounge which as anyone might suspect was dimly lit and poured a stiff drink. When we sat for dinner it was at a large round table with a pristine white tablecloth. The room is richly furnished but the menu called to... More

Monday night is a great time to dine. Not many customers and immediately got a table. Started with margarita on the rocks. I've always said it's the best in town. And still the best. We ordered chicken Parmesan. It's served with garlic or hot bread and pasta. Also soup or salad. The meal was excellent. The wait staff very friendly... More

Had a very good experience with my family at this restaurant. The quality of the food was very good and service was prompt. Some in my group had the lasagna and they had high praise for it. Be warned, the portion sizes are large and you may want to consider sharing. Personally there was a little too much red sauce... More
