Oakmont >Michael A's Restaurant & Lng
good people. good place, good people, good food. authentic itlalian food with an emphasis on service and family. all around great place. where you wanna be to taste sauce just like grandmas!!!!
Great Italian food, service, and chef.... One of our favorite close-to-home restaurants. The mushroom ravioli is one of my husband's favorites. I love the rolled stuffed eggplant and Michael A's scallops. Hopefully I will have saved room for the Tiramasu! The chef is the owner who always comes out and asks about your meal. The wait staff is always pleasant and attentive. So sorry to read the previous bad reviews - we have never had a bad experience there.
Great food and GREAT Service. I'm not sure what planet the other party is from, however, my husband and I have been faithful customers of Michael A's for over 10 years. The food has always be consistently great, in fact we use the restaurant to cater our holiday meals.
Bad service. After placing an order and making use wait 1h , the waitress told my husband they were sold out of ravioli ... what respectable Italian place runs out of ravioli . I did get the pasta i ordered , but the taste was worst than chef boyardee so please stay away
DON"T WASTE YOU MONEY. Complete disappointment! Michael A’s would not accept the Entertainment card with the lobster dinner, so my wife ordered the broiled seafood platter. She wanted to add a lobster tail to the platter (as allowed on the menu) but was told we could not use the card with the optional tail (nothing in the Entertainment book addressed any issue about ordering lobster). Well she got the broiled platter with lobster tail and I ordered the Zuppa Del Mar. We both ordered the French onion soup. Well here is what we got: French onion soup that tasted like old water with a dipped onion (cheese was good), wife’s scallops were tasteless, my Zuppa Del Mar had fish that was so overcooked that it was mushy, the shrimp were like rubber, the 6 mussels were dry, only 2 clams, and 2 oysters. I complained and sent the dish back. All they said they could do was allow us to use the Entertainment card ($10.00 off). So my wife’s birthday meal cost us $78.00 and the seafood from Long Johns would have been better. MY GRADE is F for this place!!
Pittsburgh is blessed with numerous neighborhood Italian restaurants of high quality, like this one..
Owner/chef Michael Sciulli moves between the kitchen and dining rooms, checking on the house and making sure everyone is happy. When the food is on the table, everyone is very happy.
A great starter is the smooth and flavorful polenta. There is also an excellent wedding soup, and for a main course, try the chicken rabiato with homemade linguini, mushrooms, onions and hot peppers, or a large veal chop, served with peppers, onions and mushrooms.
If You Order One Thing
By all means, try the beans and greens, sauteed escarole and white beans in lots of garlic and a little olive oil. Delicious, but a little goes a long way, so share it.
