Was in Staten Island Xmas Eve tried to get take-out called two places on Forest Ave told no (panni grill & nucci's). At that point was told to try Cafe Milano well that turned out to be a sucess. The fried calamari ,seafood salad and cavatelli with shrimps and clams in white wine sauce were outstanding the family loved the... More

I ordered pizza at this place for many years but two years ago I ordered and the pizza was almost charred. I gave them the benefit and ordered again a few weeks later. It was even worse. I gave them one more chance by going in to eat at the restaurant and their pasta was cold and had little flavor.... More

Whatever you feel like eating? they have it. Scrumptuous pizza with any topping, fresh Italian parsley in their pasta dishes, fresh mozzarella cheese. everything freshly made to order, fresh ingredients and super fast service. You will not be disappointed if you choose this place. Delicious quality food.

Went with my Staten Island aunt to lunch--street was being worked on and difficult to navigate to the entrance (tho the street workers swept and cleared the area to help us get into restaurant without going through too much debris!!--thanks!!) Once we got in, we were greeted nicely and orders taken-even though there was a large table in the midst... More

This is the second party that I have been to at Cafe Milano, and they never seem to fail to deliver an amazing evening!!! The food is amazing, the price is right, the waitstaff and owner (I think the older gentleman is the owner..?) is such a nice and generous person and you can tell that he really loves and... More

Cafe Milano has become our go to place in our neighborhood for pizza and pasta. We still prefer the thin crust from Pier 76 and Joe & Pats, but the grandma pie from the Cafe never disappoints. Delivery to home is quick and hot. Francais dishes like shrimp or chicken are also delicious. Great place to stop in for. Quick... More

The restaurant is excellent with great food and service. Try any of the pasta dishes and the specials offer great choices. Definitely worth the trip.

A pizza on one side and a nice restaurant on the other. The dining room is nice but not overdone. It's casual dining with fresh ingredients and tasty recipes. I like everything here and tried most items. They also do a buffet lunch and weekend music at night. All told a good place.

They must be doing something right. I have to admit, I haven't ordered a pizza from them in a very long time. Something must have happened and that is why I didn't go back, but I can no longer remember why, so ordered from them the other night. My favorite pizzeria does not deliver to my area. We ordered a... More
