We tried Michelino's on a weeknight in December. It was a very quiet and comfortable atmosphere which we enjoyed. Service was excellent and the food was fantastic! I had the Fettuccine Primavera. Portions are large and I took half of it home and ate for lunch the next day. It was served with garlic bread and I had soup instead... More

So the place is a little dated, but we had a great time. The salad was a little underwhelming but it was still good and filling. I had the beef ravioli full size and I was glad I did. My friends got the spaghetti and if you have a big appetite get the full. The small would be plenty for... More

Just arrived in town and we were meeting family that lived locally. It was suggested to meet here. We had a group of 12 and they were able to accommodate us and were very friendly. We ordered a variety of pizzas and they were all very good.

It is off the beaten path. Service was weak getting started. (Grad nite) on Friday around 7. Chris came and took care of us. Good lady. Pizza (vege) was great. We had the ?antipasto plate? It was great. Once order was placed things were rather quick. Chris stopped by often to check on us. We're talking mom & pop. Family!!!... More

Went for dinner with a group of friends on 12/11/2014. We didn't pick the restaurant, but I had been there about 15 years ago and never went back even though is like 3 minutes from our home. I had high hopes for this last visit. Unfortunately, 15 years have not made a difference in the service and food. Also, sort... More

The Isaac Family opened Michelino's in 1972 I was one for their first customers and we eat here every visit we make to El paso. This visit did not disappoint. Everything we had was terrific, service was the best. Look forward to my next trip home

Although this is a favorite of a few of my friends, I find the food very heavy (ok, I know it's Italian), but if you like mushrooms, this is the place to go!!! Not my 1st choice--but thatis just my opinion.

I have eaten at this restaurant for years. A very quaint place but has really good Italian food. It is one of my favorite places to eat. We have a lot of family parties there and everyone always enjoys the food.

Who would have guess you could get great Italian food in El Paso. The Eggplant Parmesan is one of the best I ever had, the Chicken Angelo wasn't to shabby either.

Next door is a Italian restaurant called Trattoria Bella-Sera(TBS)...leaps and bounds better! 1- TBS has a nice green salad with quality ingredients/ Michelino's serves iceberg lettuce with cheap pepperoni and some other mystery meat on it....gross. 2- TBS has better bread and it is served to you ASAP. Michelino's bread is of poorer quality and they begin the meal with... More
