Michael's Italian Restaurant
This causal Italian eatery, located in the heart of Niagara Fall's Little Italy , is a favorite of locals. Opened in 1960 by Michael Capizzi, whose family came from Italy, the restaurant is very popular; at lunchtime you may have to wait for a table. Pasta, ravioli and rigatoni are mainstays, but they also have American dishes, like steak and chicken. Other menu selections include pizza, hot and cold sandwiches, wings and fingers. They are known for their calzones, a deep fried turnover stuffed with ricotta, mozzarella and your choice of additions, like pepperoni. Be warned, every dish is served in enormous portions; expect to take at least half home for tomorrow's dinner! - Christine A. Smyczynski
Michael's is a must go to restaurant. Menu is excellent and is the best meatballs I ever ate. Prices are very very low and the portions are generous.
I live in New Haven Ct and is very italian. But Michaels is at least as good
I was misled by the Yahoo reviews for this restaurant. There were five in our party; everyone ordered something different, and all entrees were below average at best. The sauce tasted like it was out of a can, and the service was mediocre at best. We will never go back.
When we travel we always try to find some locally owned, smaller place. We went here based on the reviews and we were delighted with our meals. The sauce is one of the best I have had in my life and I am really not kidding. The meals are large. The restaurant is not really large so we went a bit early in the day to avoid waiting. We got the last table before a line started to form. Too bad we live four hours away or we would be there every week! Oh and the prices are very nice too!
My brother and his girlfriend came in from Florida and wanted to go eat something Italian. We took them to Michael's cause we heard rav reviews from our daughter.
They were delighted with the incredibly delicious food and service. A very cozy place with great food and ahhh the speggetti sauce is superb!
