Italian food

The front desk at the hotel we were staying at suggested this restaurant. Decent Italian food. The parking lot was a bit busy. Kind of noisy and our initial drink order took awhile to be delivered to our table. Food made up for any service problems though.

We visited folks that use this delivery pizza pie place over and over again without a hitch! Service reception was knowledgeable---and delivery was prompt. We tried the All-Meat pizza and the BBQ chicken with veggies! Both were excellent, and crust cooked perfectly. Only downside was the sliced sausage was a little tough. Would we request this pizza location again--Yes! Recommended.

We eat here often because the food is excellent and the service prompt and friendly. They have a large menu selection and about four or five daily specials.they have a daily soup special but it can be substituted with their minestrone soup which is hearty and tasty. There is an excellent choice of salads which is why I usually have.I... More

A group of 5 of us enjoyed a late dinner and everyone went away satisfied, with a smile! This was my first visit. There are delicious combination of Greek and Italian options; vegetarian and gluten free as well...something for everyone! We enjoyed appetizers of spinach pie and calamari. Both were made to perfection. (One person in our party is a... More

It's just another average Mediterranean restaurant trying to cater everyone, meaning there's America burgers, fish and chips etc. I ordered the vegetarian lasagna , it was just lasagna noodles in a boring tomato sauce with vegetable and baked cheese on top. I've made better lasagna and for the price, I'd stick to making my own lasagna. At the end of... More

Very busy place. Went on a Tuesday evening at 5:30 and there was a lineup out the door. Quick seating though. Friendly staff. Clean but noisy ( a lot of people) Big selection of different foods. Something for everyone in all the price ranges. I had the cannelloni. Nicely presented, very tasty, promptly served. Don't let the crowds put you... More

We visit this restaurant approx. once a month as we really enjoy the pasta/pizza special on either Monday or Tuesday evening. The ambiance is relaxing, service is always good and the food is better than most other restaurants.

This restaurant recommended by hotel staff. An easy walk from hotel. Sat outside on patio, The waitress was pleasant and efficient. We were able to split a big entre without extra charge. The food was excellent and hot when served. We returned to this restaurant the next night, because we enjoyed it, and although much busier on the Friday night,... More

Milano's is always great. Eat in, or take out the food is always fresh, huge portions (especially the burgers) and great value for the money. Consistently great food and service.
