Michael’s on Naples

Michael Dene opened his namesake restaurant, Michael’s On Naples, near his Long Beach, California, home in 2007. Under the toque is Chef Eric Samaniego, formerly of Little Sparrow, with Massimo Aronne serving as general manager and sommelier. This contemporary Italian dining destination has a new reimagined Rooftop Lounge with a more casual and shareable menu that is separate from the fine dining taking place downstairs.

Downstairs has also been updated with a new color palette, high top tables adjacent to the bar, and gallery of artwork in the cozy Chef's Gallery. The menu upstairs and downstairs boasts sustainable and locally produced ingredients with sauces and cheeses made in-house. The award-winning restaurant is open nightly for dinner with Happy Hour is offered daily from 5-7pm daily, including weekends.
