Delicious place for Italian food. They are appropriate for families or couples. The only suggestion I would make would be to update the interior a bit.

I ordered a large pepperoni pizza to take home.
The were courteous on the phone.
When we got to the restaurant, parking was scarce and a little dangerous in that little parking lot. My husband made the comment that he would not come back there just because of parking.
When we went inside, it smelled heavily of cigarette smoke and I don't think I could ever sit inside and eat.
But the pizza was really good. One of the better ones I've eaten in Waukesha County. Despite the parking, I would go back for another pizza.

I placed an order for take-out and the person who answered the phone did not know what half of the items were on the menu or how to pronounce them. Upon arrival, a coupon that was from the city clipper coupon magazine was not honored even though it did not say "Dine-in only". After being frustrated with that experience, I arrived at home to find out that the dinner salads were not included. We called and were told we could come back and get them or they would give us a credit for two side salads. Picking up the salads was not an option as we are 15 minutes away and that would mean that the rest of our food would be ruined by the time I returned. The credit was also worthlessas these salads are already included with each entree! When we called, we were treated like an inconvenience, not a good customer who has frequented Michael's for the past 5 years. Needless to say, we are not going back for average food with extremely poor service.

I have eaten at this place for years! I love their food. From the amazing pizza to their pasta dishes! The hostess that seats you is always smiling. If you wish you can just get a few drinks at the bar and watch a football game. During the games they have halftime deals most of the time (sometimes even free food)! There are a few waitors/waitresses that have been there for years and if you are/become a regular they will know your name and what you eat in no time. I love the service there and also recommend this restaurant to everyone that asks about a place to eat.

I've had pizza across this country of ours and to this day I still dream of Michael's pizza. The crust is the best out there. They also have the best marinara sauce for their pasta. The antipasto cannot be matched. I often think of going back to Waukesha, WI on vacation to see friends and eat at Michael's. side note: I use to work there, Michael himself taught me how to toss and spin pizza dough in the air. I watched him make his own Italian sausage from scratch. Duke Duke Duke Duke of Earl ....

You will get great tasting pizza here. Never been disappointed. The decor/atmosphere is fancier than say Pizza Hut, so that is nice at times. Soda's could be refillable though.

We love going here for pizza. If you want great pizza this is the place to go. We've been here several times and have not had a bad pizza yet. Enjoy it.

Like Italian, you simply can't go wrong here - pizza, lasagna, and more. The menu and pricing is great and the atmosphere is excellent. They have a nice size bar off the main dinning area so kids are welcome!

Three generations enjoy Michaels. This is a traditional full service Italian restaurant. It even has a full service bar. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, service is good, and prices are reasonable. Take the family out and enjoy the atmosphere.

Michael's pizza is one of the best thin crusts around. The service is sometimes bad. Suggest take out. Once we dined in when there was a large school team eating after a big game and we were ignored for over an hour. No drink refills or attention to our check when it came time to leave. Food was great though.

First time we went we sat down, ordered, and waited 45 minutes for our food!!! Food really wasn't that good and when we voiced our displeasure, the manager said that he did not need our business. When I went back a 2nd time (w/out my husband as he won't step foot in the place again), I thought I'd try the Friday fish. Try being the key-word. They were out. Nice

Personally, i have to say nice things about the restaurant itself,however; food, the ambience and the service are poorly provided to the clientele. Food tastes ok, but not even close to real italian food. The chef should be aware of the uses of spices more accordingly.
