We've dined here several times over the years, and I have noticed a steady decline. Those in my party who had fish meals were quite happy. But the pasta dishes all tasted the same (we share, so I tasted them all). The salads were uninteresting, and the coffee tasted like it had been heating for hours. I don't know if... More

I felt like the invisible man here waiting for service..The owner noticed and assisted me..He was very nice..I just wanted something to take home..One waitress looked miserable! Maybe because the place wasn't busy..Well I still tipped over 20 percent like I always do with take out..The food was good..Next time I will stay and really check out the service..This restaurant...

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen: 42 yrs the Milanese has served wonderful, homemade, delicious food. August 2, 2013 I took Rita&Michael McHugh where Rita worked as a teen to the Milanese and enjoyed great cocktails served up by Karen at the bar. We were seated by Robert's daughter Adriana who served us the entire evening and we laughed and talked while... More

I've been coming here for years and know the family well as they've all been involved for many years and take pride in everything they cook for you. Prices are decent and the home cooking will be well appreciated by anyone that has had a fine Italian Dinner at grandma's house.

I've had so many meals in your basic family Italian restaurant over the years that I wasn't ready for the great meal I had here. Looking around the dining room I could see many regulars- and they looked like the kind who knew what home-cooked Italian tasted like and knew that they were going to get that here. There was...

The Milanese has been around for ages. It is a family business with Santino and Rita overseeing the place. I remember when their children were going to Mt. Carmel School and they are now adults. The food is basic Italian and very good. Service can be a bit slow at times, but it is worth waiting for. Just relax and... More

Been here over and over through the years. It has had its share of ups and downs. Has been all Up for for years now. Family friendly, parties of all sizes accommodated. My favorite southern Italian, red sauce, family run restaurant in the area. Parking on site.

Oh where to start, this place is an old Italian Rest , that was probably very very popular back in the day ,it's old and kinda dumpy sorely needing a fresh up , a coat of paint would go a long long way ,, the candles in the empty Chianti bottled brought a feel of a real mom and pop... More
