We recently had our company Christmas dinner here. It was wonderfully decorated for the season, the service was second to none. We had a variety of appetizers that were all very tasty and well prepared. We had a variety of entrees from pasta to chicken oscar to veal cutlets. There were no complaints, the table got very quiet as people... More

On December 1st, we enjoyed a leisurely lunch with friends and found the experience very enjoyable. Our server, Jenn was pleasant and efficient. The decor is quite warm and inviting and the Christmas decorations were part of the atmosphere. The food was nicely served with adequate portions. The prices cannot be described as budget, for sure, but they are not... More

Quick dinner at Milanos did not disappoint us. Our service was friendly and quick. The food was nothing spectacular but the atmosphere was warm on a cool evening. Pretty standard Italian fare that satisfies. We will return to this place!

The owners of this restaurant ensure a relaxing atmosphere. The décor is changed to match the season. Presently decorated in Fall colours and for Thanksgiving. We find Milano's a excellent establishment to entertain guests. An extensive menu covering all categories of food excellently prepared.

We liked the food, atmosphere and service and price point and will definitely return. The only problem was getting there. It is very simple unless you follow a navigator. Turn west from the highway onto Aulds Road, go one block, it is on the SE corner. You can't really miss it without a navigator but there are lots of reported... More

First time at Milano's. I had moussaka which did not have a lot of flavour and seemed re-heated and tough on bottom. My Piñacolada tasted odd. Our kids had Calamari which was flavourless and chicken Alfredo was bland. The seafood fettuccine was good with lots of seafood. Overall seemed the meals were inconsistent and seemed pricey for serving size. Service... More
