Bolognese

Amazing food. The bolognese dish is simple and yet made with so much care that it feels that you are enjoying it in small restaurant in Florence.

Prosciutto & Burrata with Pear

The best starter to the meal. Great texture and contrast between the hot pear and cold cheese, sweetness of the pear to the salty prosciutto. Plus, it's just the right amount, so it works well if you are a table for one or sharing with a friend.

Margherita

My little brother got this when we came and after the first bite, we looked at each other and said: it's real Italian pizza. No pizza in the US has come close to tasting anything like the ones they make in Italy except Michael's! It's a 12" pizza but it's enough to fill a person. Everything from the sauce to the bread to the cheese was amazing. It's definitely a must try!!

Margherita

Well well well, where do I start? The wife and I hard our anniversary coming up and well, COVID has just hit. We had nowhere to celebrate our anniversary, we were is sad town. So check it, I call Micheals and talk to one of them nice fellows. I asked if they can make ya heart pizzas. Guess what? You'll never guess... they made some super cute heart shaped pizzas. It really brightened up our quarantine. Oh yeah, the pizza was so delicious. Suuuuuuuper delicious.

Chicken Parmigiana

Not only is this amazing, it is cheesy. I enjoy extra cheese. The chicken and breading is perfect. Not so much breading and a cook amount of chicken meat. Full of flavor and still taste good the next day.

Garden Vegetable

Wow! I will start by saying I appreciate the great service by the staff during these unprecedented times. I started with fried calamari and I didn't think my actual entree Could beat that, it was so delicious. My date and I split the garden vegetable pizza, and I truly think I found my new favorite pizza in Long Beach. I do not think either of us stopped eating to say a single word. Haha Thank you!

Family Pizza & Pasta Dinner

This has been one of our go to take out meals during COVID. More than enough food for a family of four with enough bread for a French toast the next morning. Every option is delicious.

Shrimp and Clam Diavolo

By far my favorite thing on the menu. I work down the street and got my restaurant hooked on this! They visit this restaurant just because of this appetizer. The service is impeccable as well!

Fried Calamari

one of my favs! I could do without the zucchini, but the batter is super light and crunchy and not overly oily. I could drink the marinara dipping sauce by the gallon. Definitely a must order.

SPINACH RICOTTA RAVIOLI

Probably the best ravioli I have ever had. The flavors were incredible. The pasta was very light and not overly stuffed. This was my first time here and I would come back again and again

Frosé

Just sipped my first Frosé. It's little but it packs a big punch. Refreshing! Have as a cocktail or try it as dessert to wrap up the meal.

Truffle

The best pizza ever, from the first bite to the last. It's light, full of flavor and just the right size. If you don't eat it all in one sitting, it's great as leftovers, cold or warmed up. A must have, even if you are not in the mood for pizza.

Red Blend

Aromatic, smooth, great color and always a pleasure to sip. Goes great with everything on the menu.

Bolognese

I came to Michael's for the first time with my boyfriend and little brother and we ordered takeout. I ordered the bolognese and after the first bite, it threw me down memory lane to when I first went to Italy. Everything about the pasta was delicious and had the right amount of meat and sauce. I've had homemade pasta in mom and pop shops in Italy and you can definitely taste that the pasta here at Michael's tastes just like the ones I've had back in Italy. Delicioso!!

Prosciutto Arugula

I have been visiting this restaurant for more than two years, I consider myself a frequent customer, and one of my best options is always this pizza, I love how healthy they are, zero fat and always on a charcoal stove, the best in the city of Long Beach .

Family Pizza & Pasta Dinner

So much great food for s reasonable price! Pasta alla Norma was delicious. The eggplant was perfectly cooked, tender & well seasoned. Pasta was cooked just right and the sauce wad rich snd flavorful. My only regret is not ordering wine to go with the dinner. Oh yes almost forgot the delicious crispy bread!

I have gotten this for my grandkids multiple times during COVID. The grandkids love the pizza, And my husband and I share the salad and pasta. This has been the best deal we have all of these crazy times. We hope they continue this deal whenever COVID is over.

Family Pizza & Pasta Dinner

This was such a great meal during covid. Amazing food to go and it was plenty to serve our family of 4. Pizzas were delish and the pasta and salad 👌. The tiramisu finished it off to make it a perfect meal. Hoping it continues to be an option even when covid is over!

Red Blend

It is hard to find something I don't like at Michael's. The Farmhouse Red Blend is my absolute favorite, a go-to drink for every visit. All of the appetizers are amazing; the burrata is a crowd pleaser. I love their daily special pizza. It is creative and different every time I go. Even the most basic item on the menu, a caesar salad, was amazing. To be honest, I don't even care about caeser salad and would never normally order it, but a friend did once, and I ate the whole thing! It speaks to the quality of a restaurant if they can execute even the most typical dishes in a stand out manner. I am a fan of the ambiance as well. They clearly take pride in their business at Michael's and the effort doesn't go unnoticed. As a result, it is a staple in my dining out rotation because I always know it will not disappoint.
