This year has been different, we spend more time part, socially distanced. We try to do some of the same things still, eating out at restaurants but it is a little different. A few friends and I decided it was time to have a socially distanced lunch outside at Michaelangelo’s Winery in Richfield, Ohio.
OMG the food is outstanding, you feel like all of a sudden that you have been whisked away to Italy instead of being stuck in Ohio. The food is served family style so please bring a lot of people!
Here is what our table ordered and I would recommend it to everyone! Though we did not try the pizza’s I have heard amazing things about them.
- The Arancini– OMG I mean fried rice balls with cheese, it’s not hard to mess up. I would highly recommend these! It is a crowd pleaser that everyone would love.
- Calamari – This fried calamari comes with a lovely sauce that is drizzled across. Top it off with a fresh lemon squeeze, it’s *Chef kiss* perfecto
- The Charcuterie Plate – Cheese, crackers, and a bit of dried meat. That’s really all I need to be happy so that’s all you should need too!
- Short Rib Pappardelle – This pasta is amazing, the thick noodles are to die for, and they are house made! The pasta is topped with fresh peas that add this perfect snap in every bite. Along with bacon, parmesan, and of course melt in your mouth short ribs.
We tried a variety of wine as well that were all delicious. The wines seem to change based on the Season which I love, that way you are getting the best ingredients and flavors.
If you get the chance and want to spend a Saturday or Sunday enjoying great flavors and atmosphere, I would recommend stopping by Michaelangelo’s. They also have an amazing bakery section that I did not get to check out and am still regretting it.
