Tasty Passta and Pizza

We had the Milanese pasta (prawns an scallops) and the Milano pizza. Both were very good, especially the pasta sauce.

Great mid range pizza joint with good service. Burger are giant and very tasty, French fries are great ! Drink menu offers a variety and even has 0% alcohol beer. Good for designated driver.

We both just fancied pasta, that night. One has the Poormans Pasta which was absolutely delicious the other had the prawn and seafood which was just OK. Service was very very good

Located close to the Woodgrove Mall, Costco and numerous other retail and business locations, we chose to arrive early (5:15). There were no waits to be seated or to have our orders taken and served. My New York Steak Oscar and fettuchini alfredo was large, tasty and cooked to order but not quite as tender as hoped. Service was fast... More

Went to this place a few weeks ago with some girlfriends to celebrate a birthday - our service was very slow - a tall chubby dark haired girl who sounded like Fran Drescher from the Nanny was our waitress/manager. We waited what seemed like hours for our food, and even though our table was one of the first ones seated... More

We found the meat a bit sparse in the wrap we ordered... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Nanaimo. I go here every time we visit. The pizza is great along with all the other food. Staff are friendly and attentive. A great place to eat with good prices.

This restaurant is a bit like a chain restaurant, similar to white Spot or ABC in that they have a large capacity, pretty well a fixed menu, and a bit busy & noisy......BUT....the food is always quite good....also the service! Eleven of us reserved tables on a Friday night, so busy & noisy. The servers and I'm sure the kitchen,... More
