The food was adequate and certainly not in line with the prices. The service was extremely rushed when they appeared with very long delays in between every stage. The noice level was so bad in one area - we asked to be moved but we were put in an area with little to no lighting. We were an after thought. We will not be back.

Food was good, they checked for vaccine passport and Id. However during as pandemic we were surprised that they put everyone close together in one room all tables used and not 6 feet apart. They had another room with many tables and no one in there. We felt that they could have spaced people out to the empty room and kept social distancing in check. Otherwise the food was good as always.

Food and service was amazing. I tried kangaroo for the first time. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. First class.
There were a couple children running the halls and yelling at full volume. At first we thought were beside a playground or hockey arena. I realize this is on the parents and not the restaurant but it did damper the experience

We really enjoyed a lovely dinner inside a restaurant after such a long time because of covid restrictions. Linguine frutti de mare and Toblerone chocolate mousse cake were both excellent!

The food was fantastic as usual with a wide selection of entrees and appetizers. Unfortunate that there was noisy patrons at the table next to us (kids were acting up); which took away from the ambiance.

A small, locally owned and operated, Italian restaurant with a varied menu plus daily specials. Great ambiance, attentive service and there are private rooms for small parties.

The atmosphere was amazing. Very clean and bright. I had the artichokes arancini as an appetizer - very good indeed. My entre was Veal and the veggies were so fresh and amazing. Lots of parking space. Our server Carlos was very friendly, so was the other server but I did not get his name.

We have wanted to go to Michael's for a while.

While the staff were very helpful, for some reason we waited for our food for about an hour. So too long a wait after appetizers. The food was really good thought when it did come

We had a very loud table next to us, so it made it difficult for us to have a conversation as well.

It was wonderful to be back to one of our favourite restaurants after a long lockdown. While service was casually slow, it meant that we didn’t feel rushed the food was excellent as always. Great to see that this gem weathered the storm,

Food was not that great and expensive.
I had veal and it was bland and a small portion. My son had pasta which also had no flavour or salt. Service was extremely slow and it wasn’t busy. I ate here before years ago and it was fantastic. Not sure if we will be back.
