We had gone here after a long day at whiteface. We had never been to Lake Placid and didn't know what was good. The food was definently great. The service was great and the waiter answered the questions we had.

Once again my husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Milano North. The restaurant as always is very nicely decorated, especial the log ceiling ornaments! The service was impeccable, prompt and everyone was very polite. My husband order the pork tenderloin and I had the salmon and we were both satiated and not stuffed. We will return again!

Seafood Entrees, homemade pasta and wood fire Pizza-you can't go wrong with any choice. All the ingredients are fresh and the speciality cocktails are delicious. This place has a large wine selection to choose from to pair with your meal. The ambiance is rustic chic with friendly staff from servers to chefs. If you're looking for fresh, homemade Italian cuisine... More

Made reservations for 6 at this location about a week in advance. When we arrived we waited for approximately 15 minutes while two large groups were seated ahead of us. It was my impression that they did not have reservations. The hostess cobbled together three tables, almost in the aisle near the entrance to the dining area. Two other tables... More

The poor reviews around July time seem to have been a blip as we had a very enjoyable family dinner here (party of 4). Good central location on main street, very friendly and efficient service, nice atmosphere. Good selection of food - pasta, pizza and other main dishes - all well executed. Very good value choice and hard to fault... More
