Always outstanding food & service! One of our favorites. We travel from outside Philly to get to this restaurant. It is worth the 2 hour drive.

Very VERY nice appetizers, food was awesome! This was the second and definitely not the last time there. We were a party of 9 and all loved the food. We tried everyone's dish and wanted to go back and try more. Very nice experience, highly recommend it. The chef, Dominic, is really an excellent chef btw.

The wild sea bass and gnocchi gorgonzola were delicious. Dominic is always a warm, entertaining host. He has invested to improve the place quite a bit since the last time we were there - the food was always very good but some of the decor was a bit tired. It now looks great, and is consistently outstanding value. A great place for dinner for two or large parties. Will definitely be there again soon.

This restaurant is fabulous. We were greeted by the owner upon arrival, and he was very polite. It is a cozy restaurant that has the appearance of a house. Our waiter, Eddie, was extremely polite and helpful, and he makes one mean tiramisu martini :) The food was spectacular. Everything was super fresh and super tasty. The owner visited us during our meal and we had a nice little chat with him. The neighborhood this restaurant is in is also very, very nice. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody. I can't say anything bad about it.

One of my pet peeves, and those at our table agreed, is using giant wine glasses and only filling them less then a quarter full
If you are going to charge $10+ for a 6 oz pour, it would look better, and make it seem like less of a rip off, in a smaller glass IMHO

Overall Wonderful dining experience. Wait staff were excellent. The Decour is fresh, very nice but not too formal. Clams casino was just OK. But our two pasta dishes were excellent. They were very gracious to accommodate a special order.

Michaelangelo's provided a lovely Mediterranean atmosphere which was tastefully decorated. The service was prompt, polite and non-intrusive. The food was excellent and well presented. I highly recommend Michaelangel's Restaurant.

This restaurant a large selection of menu items and the food is always very good. The service is excellent and the seating arrangements are comfortable. The wine list includes a fair selection of choices that fit anyone's budget. The chef is flexible and you can generally ask for changes in the preparation of menu items.

Il Michelangelo merits serious consideration and deserves recognition as being among THE best restaurants in the Metropolitan area!!! It is an absolute pleasure to dine there. Every aspect of the dining experience is outstanding. Our server, Isidro, was attentive, knowledgeable, pleasant, and professional. The owner, Dominic, is a genuinely happy and experienced human being. His wonderful restaurant is testimony to his ability to distinguish himself amongst his peers. The rest of the staff members were excellent and absolutely on top of things. The food is heavenly!!! Everyone in our party of 8 during our most recent visit agreed that the food surpassed any they had ever had elsewhere. This place is a gem!!!!! We all can’t wait to go back.

We are never disappointed with Michelangelo. There were five different entrees served at our table -- talapia, salmon, pork, veal, and beef and all of us found our dinners delicious. Desserts are fantastic too.
The staff is super-friendly and service is prompt.

This is the kind of place that just makes you feel comfortable. From the bartender that make your drink while you wait for the rest of your party, to the extremely friendly waiter. And the always great touch of when the owners talking to you to make sure your experience was perfect. ** great place.

This was our second time visiting Il Michelangelo’s. We recently moved to the area and found this gem along our route to work. From the moment you step in, you’re greeted as if you’re family. The staff is all so friendly. We even met the owners who even remembered our names on our second visit. We enjoyed how cozy it was and felt like we were right at home. Everything we’ve eaten has been impeccable! We so looked forward to our leftovers the next morning! We definitely know Il Michelangelo’s has become our new favorite spot!
