Description: We know that pizza tastes best when it is wood-fired, that mozzarella should always be freshly made, and that meals are enhanced when paired with the perfect Italian wines. From our service to our atmosphere, our flour to our sauce, this is our tradition-passed down from generation to generation-of Napoli-style pizza. At Michael's Pizzeria, food is heritage.

This is generally a thick crust pizza with lots of goat cheese (my favorite). One can choose different cheeses and think crust. The wait people give children pizza dough to make their own pizzas or anything else they wish. It's a nice twist. I like the pizza, but it is't cheap.

So glad we found this is a mall of chain food restaurants. We had never heard of Michael's before and were very pleased. Michael's has a nice clean contemporary atmosphere. You can sit up at the little eating bar and watch them prepare the meals. We were looking for a good Margherita Pizza and found it here. We heard others next to us commenting on how good the fennel salad and the lasagna was too. I would recommend checking them out.

Michaels was recommended to us by locals and while it was very good, it was also unexpected - which isn't necessarily good or bad. While they have pastas etc on their menu, we were there for pizza. They have one size (10" pizzas) that are more similar to what you find in Europe rather than what we see in the US. Crust was thin and crispy. Toppings unique like arugula. While their offerings do not lean towards kids, they did offer some pizza dough for the kids to "make their own" pizza which they then baked. Soda's were $3 for an 8 oz bottle and no refills. The location is very small so seating can become a problem. Great location in the River shopping complex near the theaters. Parking lot is large and busy so you will have to park and walk. Valet parking was available for $8. Staff was helpful, service was quick.

The mozzarella saves this place from mediocrity, the Brother Thelonius on tap also.
The Calamari is more fried Zuchini than squid.
The Burratta is ok, cold, I prefer hot and oozing.
The wood oven is good, the dough Doppio Zero, they should serve the plain dough with the appetizers. Over all only a 3-4, Piero's on El Paseo probably a better choice...
