The food at this restaurant was fabulous! Everything from the appetizer to the main course to the absolutely fabulous tiramisu was incredible. My husband had gnocchi which was superb, and I had the puttanesca which I can't say enough about. The owner makes certain that he visits each table and does what he can to make it a wonderful experience.

You could say this was organised chaos however it was not just frantic. Booked for 8pm however due to earlier bookings turning up late there was a line and others left. The owner ran around to try and keep everyone happy and succeeded in a way by proving everyone waiting with a free glass of wine. Eventually after and hour+... More

About a 15-20 minute cab ride from the Union Square area, this small, family run restaurant delivers good food at a very reasonable price. The atmosphere is authentic - with no pretentiousness. The staff are extremely knowledgable and gracious. For wine lovers please note that the restaurant only carries Italian and California wines (no South American).

Went for a business dinner. Space is a little small, so had to wait a few minutes for the table to open up, even though we had reservations. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was outstanding! I had the soup and then lamb chops. Good wine selection. For dessert must try the poached pears! Excellent cappuccino, and the end... More

Based on the Trip Advisor reviews and a recommendation from a local, we had dinner here. We split the Gnocchi and Veal Scallopini Special of the day. Maybe the great Italian food in Houston made my expectations too high, but I thought the food at Ristorante Milano was just average. The prices were not overly high except for $11 for... More

We had never been to this place before and decided to try it because of all the Trip Advisor recommendations. It is absolutely fabulous! We made our reservation ahead of time because it is a very small place in the Russian Hill neighborhood; very warm & welcoming.The owner kept a sharp eye on every customer and managed to speak with...
