This place is so good. The food is prepared very well and is reasonably priced. The house wine is excellent. This family-owned business is top notch. Parking is easy. New lunch menu is great. This restaurant is good for take out, delivery, or dining in. Atmosphere is very warm and comfortable.
GREAT FOOD, AND GUILHERME SCHROETER, AMAZING PIANIST !! – I love the Michelangelo, when I came to Los Angeles, not only because the food, but because the PIANIST, GUILHERME SCHROETER - that plays film pop and CLASSICAL LIKE A CONCERT PIANIST !!!
He performs mondays tuesdays and wednesdays (sundays too) there (6 to 10pm), as well the remain days (except sundays) at HAMLET HAMBURGER`s (9201 Sunset Boulevard 90069) west hollywood`s BABY GRAND PIANO !!
He is the only one pianist that not only play jazz (like any pianist in los angeles) but also capable to play like Liberace, film themes arranged mastery, the golden era music, pop famous themes, and ever arrangements from OPERAS, and SIMPHONIES!!
Not worth a visit – Been there with 3 friends a few days ago. I've ordered the special of the day 'rack of lamb' which was barely OK, but just barely. Really hard to chew meat dunked in a thick sauce .....;-( All that for $28 !
The waitress did not allow me to pour wine for our friends at the table. Just to make sure, the bottle was bought there, at the restaurant. She said she'd get fired if she let me pour the wine! This is an Italian restaurant, right? Probably never of the owners or associates there ever was in Italy, but hey.
The place really is a step down from the older location. The tiny parking place the restaurant owns costs now $3.50 for 'valet parking'. Wow!
Now here comes the best of the worst: I got the bill, I glanced at the bill and found it a bit high. I re-calculated and found that the asked amount is about $50 higher than what we actually consumed. I asked the waitress to have a look at it. She took it and left and then we haven't seen her for good 10 minutes! Then she came back with a new invoice with no word of apology or explanation! She just said: it wasn't me!
I signed the invoice and another 'waiter' then came to pick it up. I asked about the invoice and he said 'No, it wasn't him either'. The whole thing was not funny. The manager or whoever is in charge didn't find it necessary to apologize and they wouldn't even find it cool to maybe offer coffee or something to calm the waters.
What a disappointment. Never again!
silverlake gem – we have had many wonderful meals here and we keep going back. the food is uncomplicated but delicious, and consistently so; the atmosphere is cozy, warm, unpretentious; and the prices thoroughly reasonable.
It's everything one looks for in a neighborhood eatery.
we feel like family every time we visit.
Best Italianon East side of LA – This is the best most authentic Italian food I have found in LA. Family run for over 10 years and specializing in attentive service. If its not on the menu they will do it for you. Home baked breads and desserts, The best Cappelini Checca I've found in the U.S. Amazing daily specials. Great pizza. The address on Citysearch is wrong. They are now on Rowena Ave and Glendale Blvd. in Silver Lake. They are also VERY family friendly (despite of what Citysearch says.). We have hosted large groups there and they always accommodate us beautifully. This has been our special place for over 10 years. The brothers who own it go out of there way to make it an exceptional experience. This is a must try in Silver Lake.
Seafood is amazing! – Finally a place that offers more than the usual fried calamari, they have that too, but you also have so many choices. I recommend their BRAZINO (Sea Bass), it's huge and soooo good.
A family affair – I had been planning our family reunion for months. The dates, the activities...quite the project! The first night I was told we would be 22 for dinner. We set dinner at 7, by 8:30 there were ten more! The staff that evening was so helpful. The pasta dishes were a huge success! I think we ordered all but one.
The atmosphere is gorgeous. So many details...you can tell the owners take pride in there restaurant. Our food was always ready and so well presented too! I know our family wants to make this another tradition! I recommend the hot fudge cake and ice cream for the kids, they loved it!
THIS PLACE IS AWESOME! – Right away you're greeted with a smile from everyone. We were worried we didn't have a reservation, on a Friday night, what were we thinking...They let us know that we could wait for a table inside or sit outside right away. We were anxious to be seated and we were. This place is so cute. We ordered the divina salad and grilled calamari...PERFECT. I had the veal and my friend had the gnocchis. She's Italian, so no place in LA gets it according to her...they did it right. At the last minute I sneaked away and told the hostess it was my friend's bday. All the servers and (owners) came out to sing. We had a the best time. My Italian friend finally approved. She said it felt like just like home! Thank you everyone at Michelangelo!
Good in the past but horrible now!!! – I used to LOVE this resturant before it move location.Good service great food small and romantic. Now u are lucky if you can get a table. It's always busy and the hostess doesnt make thing better, she is rude and just doesnt care unless you know her.Finally after waiting 2hours for a table when my food arrived it was cold and the server didnt come at all to offer water or ask if everything was fine. So i never could complain because it seem like no one cared. THEY WERE SO RUDE. NEVER will we go there again plus the parking stinks . who ever took charge of the resturant is doing a bad job keeping their loyal custermers from the neighborhood. I live around the corner, so sadly i say no to this once great resturant
