The food and service are second to none. Friendly wait staff and excellent food. Their pasta meals are fantastic, always hot and bubbling, smothered in cheese and so tasty. The pizzas are equally good as are all items on their menu. They serve other types of food besides Italian, and although I mostly go for the pasta or pizza, their... More

We celebrated our Niece's 16th birthday at Milano's in Nanaimo. What a great place! It's family friendly offering a wide selection of Italian dishes. There were 22 of us so we managed to choose several items to share off the menu. My all time favorite is the baked tortellini. If you're looking for a nice place to enjoy good food... More

Thought I was going to eat at an Italian restaurant. Not so!!! More Greek items than Italian on the menu. Was disappointed as I had hoped to have a veal dish. In the end settled for Minestrone soup which was just ok. My second dish was the crab cakes which were barely edible. Would not return.

This is a place for friends and families. A great menu with pizzas, pastas and other fare. My mother loved their beef liver with onions. It was the first time she ate absolutely everything on her plate. The bakes meat lasagna is excellent as is their Special Milano's pizza. They do not skimp on the toppings and they accommodate people's... More

Been several times now and it is always a satisfying meal. The pizza is great, the fish tacos are as good as you will get in Nanaimo and the lamb is good and more than a normal person can eat in one sitting.

We stop there for lunch during shopping trips to Nanaimo and have found the food to be well prepared, reasonably priced, and served quickly - even during busy lunch hours when ALL staff pitch in to serve and clear tables. A good place to take a break from hectic shopping.

We recently stayed in Nanaimo and ended up eating here for dinner, then lunch the next day. On the Saturday night we took advantage of their seafood pasta that comes with a Caesar salad and garlic bread for under $18.00. Lots of fresh seafood. Very delicious. Sunday, we returned for lunch with family. The special salad and Greek salad are... More

Have visited this restaurant a number of times and have never had any issues. The staff are amazing and the food is always served hot and very tasty. The Monday/Tuesday night specials are a great deal especially the pizza which is cooked to perfection. I like that they actually put toppings on the pizza enough to make you appreciate it... More
