I don't take any pleasure on writing low reviews. I typically like to give the business (especially small businesses) an opportunity to make corrections necessary before going online. I really wanted to like this place. My problem was with the food. Very Americanized Italian food. Overcooked. We ordered a pizza and unfortunately it was wrong. I still tried a bite... More

Had a 1/2 portion of spaghetti and 2 meatballs, had it parmigianed. Enough for 2 meals. Came with lettuce and tomato salad and bread. Didn't need to spend money on parmegiana, wasn't worth it. All in all very good. Meatballs extra also. About $18. Got 2 meals though.

This restaurant has been here for many years and the food has always been goo, but it now seems better. The ambiance is not the best, but the food and staff make for a wonderful dining experience.

The best thing about Michaels is how they generated an interest in greens and beans. They are still the best because they soak and cook the beans the way bean soup is supposed to be made. Their imitaters start with canned chicken broth then add canned beans throw in some greens and heat. The outcome is fake greens and beans.... More

Located on busy thoroughfare with street and rear parking lot. Weekly specials with focus on Italian meals with reasonable price. Busy atmosphere so is not a location for serious discussion. Neighbor has a variety of shops with a Tim Hortons across the street

The food there is just OK. I do go there from time to time but it is average at best. This is a place I go to in a pinch when I am out or near home but there are many other MUCH BETTER restaurants in Niagara Falls.

The ONLY reason this restaurant doesn't get a 5 from me is that it's setting is unremarkable. Old school (not fancy, just old) upholstered booths and fake wood top tables. Not that there's anything WRONG with it....it's just that the setting doesn't match the food. The food is awesome. It doesn't matter what you get. The sauce amazing and always... More

Although the food is very good, I will no longer be calling every other week to place an order. For the third time in a row, our order had a problem. Today's issue was with the food. We ordered two calzones, one with pepperoni, mushrooms, and no ricotta, one with pepperoni, onions and ricotta. The first had no mushrooms. When... More

Service was great, portion sizes perfect. Service was awesome (wish I would have caught our servers name) a little shorter, brown hair, middle age. She was on point with everything. All food was cooked perfect. Fresh mozzarella cheese on salad is to die for. Very very impressed. Wish we had more time here so we could go back and try... More
