My wife and I dined here twice in five nights as the food and service is exceptional. Located on 55th Street between 5th & 6th Avenues the restaurant was an easy walk from the Hilton Garden Inn Times Square, where we stayed. Eric the owner is hands on and very personable with a genuine care for his clientele. Ben our... More

We came across Bistro Milano whilst strolling near Central Park on a summer's evening and it looked so inviting that we asked for a table. We were very glad that we did as both the food and the service were good. We didn't want a big meal and chose the Tagliatelle verdi paglia e fieno and the rigatoni alla Bolognese,... More

If you like to share the dish, the portions meet are enough... More

The services was horrible. The Food was just OK. We heard many thing things about this establishment. Unfortunately, we did not have such an experience. The meals were lackluster. The service was absent.

We were at the hotel across the street and were wandering back from a shopping excursion looking for dinner. Sat on the patio split a salad and a pizza - worked out perfectly and the food was really very tasty. Service was pleasant but not super attentive.

We had the minestrone which was lovely. Artichoke soup was okay. My husband had the ribeye which he said was perfect and I had halibut which was ever so slightly overdone but still flavourful. We waited a bit for drinks but service was prompt.

First night in NYC and we stumbled here. Friendly staff, nice wine by the glass. Found the calamari on the greasy side, the beets come with way to much goat cheese for any normal person. We ordered half portions of the pasta which was perfect if you are ordering apps and salad as well. The teenagers had the ravioli special... More

Very enjoyable visit, on our first night in New York. We arrived late - about 9pm, but we were welcomed and they quickly organised a table for 6. Menu was great, as was the food, and the service was friendly and efficient.
