This restaurant is a scam. Do not eat here. I recently ate there with a few people. When the bill came, they did not provide an itemized bill of what we had ordered and did not indicate that gratuity was already added to the bill. I

After Cafe Michelina came highly recommended by a friend and co-worker, my friend and I decided to give it a try. We could not have been more disappointed in a restaurant. After being seated, we were then ignored for the most part of the evening. We had to ask for water and setups 3 times before our request was finally delivered. My friend ordered chicken murphey and I ordered lobster ravioli, when our meal was served my friends dish was served swimming in oil that had congealed and in my entire plate of ravioli only twice was there a hint of lobster. Overall the food was disappointing but the worst part of the evening was the service, our waiter had a insulting I don't care attitude, while serving his other two tables attentively. I asked for bruschetta twice and was completely ignored, but the other two tables around us was served the same bruschetta immediately upon sitting down. I was told to wait as they didn't have anymore prepared. We will never go back to Cafe Michelina as the food and service was very bad.

Pros: -------

Cons: bad food and even worse service

What a delight this restaurant is! The food here is outstanding! The Chicken Michelina is delicious and the Stuffed Rigatoni is out of this world. Chef/Owner, Pete even makes his way out of the kitchen to say hello to the regulars. My wife and I dined here when we lived in Hoboken and now we travel all the way from Long Island for a great meal whenever we can. Try the homemade soups in the winter and always take a gander at the Specials. Don't forget dessert. The tiramisu is fantastic! Bring your own wine and enjoy this great Italian restaurant.

I went out with a group of my friends to this restaurant last night. I ordered the pasta primavera w/o shrimp due to an allergy. They charged me full price for the dish. When I politely asked the waitor why I was charged full price for the dish when I did not have the most expensive part his reply was, the Shrimp are for flavor only, it had a lot of vegetables in it, its the same price. For the quality it was I was shocked. Its bad customer practice. I was a waitress for four years at a small Italian place, this is not how you handle the situation. A dollar or two off is how you handle it. I shouldve asked for the shrimp in a bag. Also, being from second generation from the old country its not great Italian. Ive had better. Your better bet is to cross the river and go to Il Corallo Tratorria....

Nice Family owned traditional restaurant. Fresh ingredients and everything is made to order. I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem in Hoboken. Friendly staff that actually lets you enjoy your meal and the company you're with.

Pros: Special orders are not a problem

Cons: BYOB

A few of us went out for a nice and relaxing girls night... all we wanted was good food and good company. We got both in Cafe Michelina in Hoboken NJ. Great Italian food and it is BYOB which is great since we are all trying to watch those bills and it is a ton cheaper to bring your own wine than to order it. We had reservations and would have been seated on time if some of us had not gotten there late (ok, okay- i took a really, really bad route). It is a really small place and there is really no where to wait though... and it was too cold to hang outside. The one downside is that during the really busy part of the night, the place is So crowded and noisy it was sometimes hard to hear and you were always moving our chairs in so people could get around us. We will definitely go back again because the food was fantastic.. just during the week and not on a busy Saturday night.

I didn't expect much from this tiny establishment, but after passing it up so many times, I took a chance 1 night & tried it w/ some friends.
We were pleasantly surprised.
The ambiance is minimal & the food is not phenomenal, but some dishes are quite good, such as the eggplant parmesan, veal in carozza & chicken saltimbocca.
Don't expect over-the-top service - this is a small place w/ a small staff, but they were friendly & very accommodating, when they could be found.
The bruscetta is a bit soggy, but the salads were fresh, included a nice mix of greens (not iceberg) & all dishes are served piping hot from the kitchen.
A word to the wise - the Hoboken health inspector clued me to his findings that this is THE cleanest restaurant in town.
Restaurant "snobs" need not bother, this is a small, neighborhood kind of place.

My husband and I ate here after reading reviews here as well as hobokeni.com, and we were thouroughly disapointed. The chicken parm was edible but had canned tomato sauce and boxed pasta and the chicken with portobello mushrooms consisted of dry, inedible chicken with terrible sauce. After complaining about the chicken dish, the manager came over to tell us that, "no one had ever complained before, and that we just didn't know what the dish was supposed to taste like." I've never been treated so rudely. Save your money and don't waste your calories, go to Margharita's on Washington Street instead, they have amazing food and the BEST service.
