First dates, Sunday dinners, holiday parties...our best memories seem to be surrounded by food. At Michael's, our menu is the foundation for your experience. We specialize in rustic, yet elegant, cuisine. That means handmade pasta, traditional comfort dishes, and a meal you will remember for a long time.
"The Sweet Life" is about taking your time and savoring each moment. We believe in taking that extra sip, then having one for the road. We have a variety of Italian wine selections that span all regions and expert levels. Our traditional cocktails, like our famous Negroni, take you to another place and time and encourage you to sit and sip just a little longer. After all, what's the rush?
My grandparents came to New York City from Sicily at a time when Fiorello La Guardia held a mayoral office, Lucky Luciano was beginning a prison term, and the world was just starting to hear the music of Frank Sinatra. While many Italians were reaching great heights, the average Southern Italian immigrants lived modestly, kept to their own neighborhoods, and raised families built upon whichever traditions from the old country could be maintained in the US.
I highly recommend Michael's on King! The food is great and they offer unique dishes as well as Italian classics. The vibe is great for a date night, family gathering, or dinner with friends...
What a lovely place. This restaurant is in a historic home in Old Town Alexandria. Every dish we ordered was perfect, as was the atmosphere.
My boyfriend and I went to Michael's for the first time for our anniversary dinner. We had a reservation at 7:30 but we were in the area early and they kindly fit us in. The service from the staff was incredible and the food was even better!...
I picked up to take home. I got gnocchi and marina I thought it was really good. The bread that came with it was also good.
Delicious food, fantastic atmosphere, and absolutely wonderful people at this establishment. If you haven't been yet, you're missing out.
