THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Michael's Ristorante Restaurant Review: Rosy walls, dark beamed ceiling, and an intimate atmosphere are important factors. Good food is the most important, and at Michaels, one of the South Philly restaurants that suburbanites will travel to, its in large supply. Appetizers might include grilled portobello mushrooms, a risotto made with those same mushrooms, or a sweet pepper stuffed with ground veal, rice and cheese. We like the string bean and potato salad in balsamic vinegar for something different, and a farfalle pasta with langostino and asparagus. As an entrée, you have to make a difficult choice between veal or chicken preparations, or something as simple as grilled sweet sausage with potatoes and greens.
