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

Great family atmosphere - place to go for family environment. Consistently excellent food. Outside patio may be a little noisy from traffic around 5pm, once the traffic is finished, enjoy the sunshine.

Went there 3 times already and it's very good. Sadly I cannot rate 5 stars but only 4 because yesterday I went there with a friend, we had a great time, awesome service and tasty dishes, but we ordered a tzatziki dip coming with pita bread and we asked other pita bread to continue to scoop the dip. I wasn't... More

We dine at Milano's at least once a month. Their food is consistently good, however, their pizza is to die for. We've never had a bad pizza there. The 50/50 is a good choice when you just don't know what you want. But, if you're in the mood for something tasty, try the Mediterranean. And, of course, the ole faithful,... More

Most places that serve pizzas are - like the mafia - very dull. But not this place. They serve super tasty pizzas at a reasonable price in a customer friendly restaurant. Will return soon.

A friend and I weren't too sure what to expect from here. Soon we realized what we've been missing out on. We had zucchini sticks with tzaziki to start, simple but sooo good. Then we both had the garden vegetarian burger, which was just amazing, fully loaded, with fries and salad, which were just as good. And, even though we... More

I ordered a surprise meal from this restaurant yesterday for a family member who is currently home bound and unable to get out. Tyson was so helpful and took great care in making sure the order was correct and that it could be delivered to my family. It arrived piping hot to their home. The delivery was prompt and curtious.... More

Milano's Nanaimo is one of our over all fav places to eat. Bright Italian decor, a 'happenin' place' with always pleasant and efficient service. A fresh extensive menu including a sizeable GF menu. The standard of service and food never varies: it is always excellent, and they are always glad to see you! Note to Celiacs: THE best GF pizza... More
