Not many customers in the Monday night when we visited, but food good at fair price. Lamb ragu and tagliatelli very good with lashings of Parmasan cheese. Did run out of Peroni though. Jolly waiter on duty when we visited.

Lasagne was bland and tasted disgusting and went straight in the bin, the pizzas followed not far behind. I've tasted and seen better food come out of a packet from a frozen food store. Won't ever return and certainly won't recommend.

Delighted to emerge from a weather bomb rainstorm on M6 drive south, to find Michaelangelo’s Restaurant at The New Holly open and welcoming. Earlybird (weekdays 17.00-19.00) menu basic but fresh cooked, and what we were looking for then. The a la carte menu looked good....More
