Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My wife and I have visited this restaurant a number of times when holidaying in Buxton over the years and we've always enjoyed it. Pleased to say it's still good quality, excellent value and friendly. Tomato garlic pizza bread to share for starter followed by...lasagne and chilli chicken slices lovely. A big plus here is that you can also byow. There is a corkage of £6, but that still offers a big saving if you're a serious wine drinker, especially if you take a posh wine. No hesitation to recommend and we will be back yet again on our next visit. Edward and Christina McAlpineMore

Staying in Buxton for a few days and wanted a nice restaurant to eat in. We hadn’t booked but this wasn’t an issue. Friendly, pleasant staff, nice atmosphere, good menu and the restaurant was spotlessly clean. The meals were freshly cooked, lovely and hot and...really tasty. Excellent value for money too, we would definitely recommend!More

We liked the atmosphere here, it's a pleasant cosy restaurant with good service. Nothing was missed. We had fritto misto and pollo pancake to start, both good, pancake in a nice sauce. Then chicken risotto and pork chop saltimbocca in marsalla sauce with roast veg...and potatoes, again very good, roast veg was onion, courgette, tomatoes and spuds all done in a little dish. Finished off with sweets and a double espresso. We took our own wine and paid corkage. Really nice meal. We were in at 6.30 and were the only ones there, another couple arrived at 7.00 followed by parties of three and six. It was a wet December 30th. Definitely come again.More

This was my first time visiting Michelangelos and I was blown away with the service. Friendly staff who were attentive throughout the whole restaurant, you really couldn't ask for better. It was steak night and we ordered the steak and wine deal from the specials...menu. The food came quick and it was fantastic. I've paid much more elsewhere and didn't compare to Michelangelos. Thank you so much and I will definitely be visiting again soon. :)More

Managed to book a table here last night after our Fringe performance at the Green Man gallery round the corner. The restaurant looks inviting from the outside and people were praising the food upon leaving. It did not disappoint. Friendly staff, good choice of dishes...with specials on the board including homemade cocktails too. The interior is warm, inviting and tastefully decorated with comfortable dining chairs - why do more restaurants not pay attention to this? The food was excellent, piping hot and flavoursome. We all enjoyed our courses very much and enthused to the waiting staff and owners. I got the impression this is a family business with the family all working together to make a success of their restaurant. After last night I can honestly say that they are succeeding. We will definitely return. If you are in Buxton seek out this lovely restaurant.More

Dave and Leanne along with their great staff always make us welcome. The food is always amazing and we often go to Michael Angelos when we go out for a meal. The fillet steaks are always amazing and Dave special sauce compliments it to perfection....We will return.More

We ordered pizza - what arrived was a flattened house brick with no colour on the base. It was tasteless, uninspiring and should not in any sense have been described as pizza. We fully appreciate that the wheels, on occasion, fall off but its how...you then deal, professionally, to provide a remedy. The managers response was equally disappointing. I'm very proud of my Italian ancestry, having lived and travelled extensively in Italy so when you're a chef talking to another chef and you categorically state its the worst pizza you have ever been served you anticipate a better attitude and a better comment than "we've been serving this for 28 years" This in no way justified what left their kitchen. All the Italians I know would rather have 'snapped pasta to cook it' than allow that dish to leave the pass. If you're Iooking to order pizza, from here, you'd be better to pick up something frozen from Aldi. On the upside, the service from the waitress' was excellent. The wine, red and white were both good. The chef/ manager's approach, however, matched the 'pizza' and the atmosphere - unnecessary and sadly lacking. I still can't quite believe that my dish was so bad I had no other alternative than to send it back!! I live in Buxton and will not be returning.More

Me and my husband stayed in Buxton for a night, that too a very snowy one! Naturally we were craving something warm. We walked into this lovely place reluctantly a little before 9pm, hoping they weren’t near the closing time but were pleasantly greeted by...Lauren and quickly seated. It was a very cozy place with the best ambiance! Lauren took us order and helped us pick the dishes to our liking. We ordered Salmone Rotolato as our appetiser and it were the most amazing thing we had tasted in quite a long while. For our main course I ordered Spaghetti Con Gamberetti e Rucola (they kindly agreed to make it extra creamy) and My husband ordered a pizza with toppings of his liking (prawn and tuna). Both were outstanding! After quite a long time we enjoyed a dinner this scrumptious. By the time we were finishing up with our main course we noticed that we were the only ones sitting. Both Lauren and Rhys were super efficient and really good at their work, and didn’t get the teensy bit fidgety about us finishing quickly. Infact, after we were done with our mains, Rhys very kindly offered to bring us dessert: Caramel Cheese cake! Which was heavenly! (To say the least) At the end the chef came out to greet us goodnight. Overall it was an outstanding experience and would recommend this eatery 10/10 to everyone visiting Buxton!More

Delicious food, but my husband's starter was brought out 10 minutes before mine. I asked the waitress a question about one or two of the mains but she didn't know the answer and walked away, instead of going to find someone who could help. The...waiter attempted to take my husband's plate away when he clearly hadn't finished. Just basic etiquette really. Apart from that, the lack of choice of pasta types, I personally would have preferred tagliatelle or linguine as an option to the mostly spaghetti or penne pasta. However the sauces were delicious and the desserts were outstanding!More
