LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Food is just wonderful! I have never had anything from here I did not love! Highly recommend the pasta arrabbiata.
We had a group of about 19 with kids and adults and on July 22, 2023, we had a celebration of life at Michaels. David was our server and did a wonderful job. The food was great! We enjoyed the atmosphere and were not rushed at all. We will definitely be back!!
Our first time here. Hands down the best chicken piccotta I have had. The chicken was perfectly cooked and the sauce was perfect. The pasta platter was also exceptional. Our server, David, was exceptional. If we lived closer than 800 miles away, we would be regulars. Thank you for a wonderful dinner.
I went a few weeks ago with my boyfriend and had their house salad and pizza. I had a family member with an upcoming birthday, and she was wondering where we were going for dinner. I suggested Micheal's, and she said never been there. The pasta platter was really good.
Very nice experience. Their special pizza is traditional and delicious. We will be back again to try others on the menu....I'm curious about the taco pizza.
My boyfriend has been on an eternal search for a sit down pizza joint in our area. Laura, my hair stylist, recommended Michael's. We went and were so pleased. The dinning environment is so classic, along with the music. Our pizza was served hot and fantastic. Toppings were plentiful, crust was deliciously crispy. We have our new place
INCREDIBLE DINING EXPERIENC!!! Find any excuse you can to try this restaurant. Everything is made from SCRATCH and SO fresh. Garlic bread was delicious. Their Pesto Ravioli was to die for, as well as the French Onion Soup (one of their many fabulous specials). Chicken high quality and fresh. Dessert was awesome. Very generous portion sizes and it's worth every penny for quality/quanity. I will most certaintly be coming back for my next date night. This place is great for families too and big get togethers! I can't wait to try the pizza next time! Thank you for a incredible dining experience, Michael's!
The blue cheese dressing was creamy and flavorful. I've gone to places that have lousy blue cheese dressing, but this was excellent. The house salad was big, leafy greens with cucumber, tomatoes and onion. The bread was warm, freshly baked and flaky with sesame seeds and grass fed butter, but slow coming to the table. My dinner was so amazing! It was a seafood pasta stuffed with lobster, shrimp and I believe scallops. It was covered in a tomato cream sauce with just a perfect touch of spice/heat. They're a touch slow, but not an issue if you're with a group of friends having drinks and a nice evening out visiting. I was with a hangry 7yo. So it felt like an eternity. I would definitely eat there again, with adults. It's a nice place, very friendly staff, old jazz playing, cloth napkins. The only negative I thing I would say is the restroom needed an update.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE! Our waiter, David was just fantastic! He was so pleasant. He really gave us the 5 Star experience. And the food! So so so good! My compliments to the chefs and I will be back! The perfect place for a date night ❤️
Authentic Italian cuisine & the flavors are so very delicious! A little pricey for some but a great date night restaurant for everything from steak, to seafood, to pizza with on point supper club type cocktails. Will always recommend Michael's & look forward to pur next visit!
I decided to switch up our routine of ordering chain store pizza
and decided to give Michael's a try. We ordered a large 2 topping pizza and their cheesy garlic bread. The pizza was awesome, with lots of toppings. Unfortunately, there was zero garlic flavor in the bread. We'll be back again for pizza!
Great old time comfortable atmosphere. Always love to eat here! Food is delicious and service is always really good. Antipasto is fun to share and Spaghetti and meatballs awesome.
We are new in town and decided to try Michael's. The vibe is old school classic Italian. It was a hot day and the cold air-conditioning was wonderful. We had the privilege to have Suzanne as our fantastic server. She gave great suggestions and was genuinely kind and friendly. Her suggestion was the best! We really enjoyed our food and my husband said it was the best Italian we had in a long time. We will will be trying the pizza tonight.
Yes, stop here to eat. Great tasting food, Great service, has a bar if you want a few drinks. Priced right for the amount of food and the service you get. This is a valu for what you are looking for.
Michael's is a local classic, great old school vibe to the place, great service, great people, and the food is authentic and delicious up and down the menu from pizza to pasta to high end meals. One of our favorites.
The only weak link is the online ordering system for take-out. It just doesn't work properly, and the staff knows it and comments on it every time there is a mix-up. The ordering is quite easy from the customer perspective, but from there, the restaurant doesn't seem to receive the orders reliably, and communications regarding when the food will be ready / is ready are very unreliable. For example, sometimes the restaurant has no record of the order even though I have a confirmation email and text noting the order was received. Other times, I get the text that my food is ready for pick up the day after we have eaten it. Michael's is worthy of a better system.
Definitely a great Italian food place. Good times and good food. Great service.
Pizzas were appetizing and delicious. Dough was perfectly cooked. Roasted wild mushroom ravioli was great. Just a small thing, the pasta was on hard side but stuffing was delicious. The pesto sauce over it was creamy and everything came together in one bite.
Handicapped parking, wheelchair accessible. Elegant lighting interior. Rest rooms are clean and neat, but I doubt it can be accessed with wheel chair, as the door is very narrow. Entrance faces south.
I will return to this restaurant and recommend other to try out.
The food here is always amazing. The environment, cleanliness and customer service makes this one of our favorite places to dine-in. Despite the restaurant being extremely busy for Mother's Day, the service and environment was excellent; they didn't make us feel like they were in a rush to get orders done. Lynne is an awesome server. Always has a smile on her face, and even though our orders are usually complicated, she always gets it right. The chefs must be the best around; the food is always the best regardless of how busy it is.
Have eaten here several times. It has not disappointed ever. Great full dining night. Before dinner drink in bar area. Then always great service and food in dining area. Have dined with a group of 2 , 5 and 8. Food was always delicious and timely. Have had many of the entees and all very good
Food was excellent. Alfredo with chicken and mushrooms was the best I’ve ever had. Love the old charm decor. I can’t drink alcohol due to health issue, but they had some amazing cocktails that I would love to try.
If you want amazing food and a great time, you must get to Michaels as fast as you can. Larynn behind the bar and Jude, the front of the house create the most fun and amazing time that you will have. The food just tops it off. This is always our go to. Thanks Michaels for being our hometown hero!
Very sad they do not accept reservations. The place was very full at 5pm on Saturday. The food is very good. Prices are acceptable for the quality and quantity of food. They are the kind of Italian restaurant that most people seek out. I recommend Michael's.
Always a Waukesha staple. A hidden gem that has been around for years. Same great hometown vibe. Food is always good and the pizza is under rated.
Wonderful atmosphere, Pleasant and attentive staff, Food is always wonderful for 30 years we have been coming. As with everywhere , they are still a little short staffed but well worth the wait
We have always ate meals when eating there. Always enjoyed food and ready to visit again. Decided to try the pizza, it wasn't bad, just not much flavor. Will return for another meal, but will skip pizza.
Outstanding food, wait staff and service. Went there for my wife's birthday and everything was perfect. Was crowded but it was Christmas time so that was to be expected. Going back soon after the first of the year.
Ordered a gluten free pizza to take home. It was made correctly, took about the amount of time they said it would, tasted good. 10" crust for the gluten free crust at a slightly different cost than the regular pizzas.
Friendly staff who were able to answer questions on the phone. While walking in and out, the seating area was nice.
Im sorry, but we paid $70.00 per person for crab legs without a soup and salad. When I asked about soup or salad they said that was extra, really? So I have eaten at this restaurant on numerous occasions, but now it will cost you extra for a soup or salad, no thank you. Good luck with your restaurant
Classic Italian style restaurant. Dark wood, low light, corner booths. Great pizza! Traditional thin crust (but you could make it thick crust if you want) will definitely be back!
I ordered food for pickup and it was ready on time, the team packaged it up when I got there to confirm everything was there and the order was correct and the food was very good and hot.
Great food. Loved the Lasgna...nice bar and Restaurant. Thumbs up!
Overall had a good experience. Went on father's day so a wait was expected. The wait was 45 minutes. Once seated the waiter was very friendly and very nice. The food was good overall and the only complaint was that the calamari was a bit greasy.
If you LOVE Italian food, you have to check out this gem! My wife and I have been talking about stopping in for years and finally made it on our 18th anniversary. We had a lively conversation with our waitress, food came out in a reasonable amount of time. Over the top good! And they know how to pour a cocktail for sure. Try the Sicilian Sazerac! All in with a well earned 20% tip we were out the door for $85!
Food was very good! Our waitress was very personable and responsive! Great service!
This place was amazing. Obviously popular with the locals. Great food, friendly and caring staff. Best meal I have had in a long time.
I have driven by Michael’s for years. We finally dined here this year and it was terrific. Great mood for a romantic night out. Excellent food. Good drinks. Reasonable prices. Will be coming back.
I ate here for the first time after Olive Garden had us waiting at the table with no service for over ten minutes. My family got up and left and decided to try Michael’s instead. It ended up being one of the best decisions I ever made.
The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. I loved the atmosphere and every staff member was very friendly. I enjoyed everything so much! I will be going again soon and recommend it to everyone. 5 star food and service!!!!
very good, easy, safe pickup. Good value, good food. warming oven at hostess station, in and out very quickly. great food , will return
Love this place. We went for first time during our marriage anniversary..was doubtful about food quality but to our surprise everything was delicious. We ordered Escargot, Chicken Marsala, Roasted Wild Mushroom Ravioli.. All were above our expectations wrt taste. Price was little high on comparison to our dining habits, but it's worth going here. Their service was equally good. Gave us enough time to settle in..we were served in time without any delay. Would definitely recommend this place for others to try..
For a first time visit we ordered carry out. It was delicious. The food was very good and hot and I would definitely order from them again.
Wow you have a customer for life. Best pizza in the Waukesha area hands down. Pasta is delicious. Fries, chicken, and mozzarella sticks are very good. You can tell they care and love what they do.
My girlfriend and I went there last week and was awesome! Between the two of us we ordered 3 entrees. One of them were the Alaskan king crabs we took our other entrees home with us. The service was a 10 and so was dinner. Definitely recommend this place to others.
WE WERE BOWLING AT SUNSET BOWL & OF COURSE AFTERWARDS WE HAD TO EAT... SOME OF US HAD A FEW TO DRINK B4 HAND SO WE MIGHT'VE BEEN A BIT LOUD BUT OUR WAITRESS JUDE T. WAS THE BOMB... SHE HANDLED 8 PEOPLE WITH GRACE... VERY ATTENTIVE.... FOOD WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING WE WILL BE BACK... THANK YOU MICHAEL'S ❤❤❤❤❤❤
This place never disappoints. Whenever we decide to go out to eat, inevitably this place is at least mentioned. It's my wife's favorite place to eat out and rapidly becoming mine. I don't recall ever having a bad experience with the service here. Host staff is always pleasant and your wait staff is the bomb. Always willing to have some side conversation with you. And I haven't even mentioned the food yet. I have tried many things on your menu and don't recall ever saying that I'd never order that again. I just wish I knew a little Italian so I didn't roach the names of your dinners every time I order. But we always leave full and satisfied. Only one thing, and not nearly enough to remove a star; can you update the carpet? Looks like it's a tad older than my 50 years.
I did a search for best pizza in Wakesha and Micheal's came up. It did not disappoint. Delicious super supreme pizza and calamari as an app that had a perfect snap, telling sign it is fresh. Rebecca, our server, was exceptional and entertained all our comments about Wisconsin's hospitality. We will be back without a doubt to try everything on the menu.

(¸.·´ (¸.·Excellent Italian Food! I'm sorry I didn't find Michael's sooner. We have 2 favorite Italian restaurants (Bay View and Milwaukee East Side). This great find is 10 minutes from home. We will be regular's in no time. A must try for anyone who loves Italian Food! The BEST Eggplant Parmesan I ever had!
