Awesome

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

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
