“Average and Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

I paid my first visit to Milano's recently as part of a group of 12. To be honest I cannot see how people can rave about this place based on my experience. The Starter I had was nice (meatballs with dough sticks) but the unfriendly waiter dropped the dough sticks and went off and arrived back with Garlic Bread. The pizzas are over priced and nothing to rave about. Mine was cold when it arrived to the table. With 6 kids and 6 adults in the group our bill came to €320. A lot of money for a casual restaurant serving pizzas. Grossly overpriced for the quality of food served

“Middle of the road”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

My girlfriend and I ate here, got good service, food was decent enough but couldn't help thinking Milano is a fast food joint masquerading as a restaurant. Can't really complain but it just seemed so generic and underwhelming.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

My kids (ages 12 & 15) and I would highly recommend Milano. We arrived at the restaurant around 8:30 p.m. on Friday, November 20, 2012. The restaurant was extremely busy, but we received a warm welcome and were quickly shown to one of the few tables left. My son had an Americano pizza (`the best pizza!`), my daughter enjoyed a lovely lasagna, and I was able to have the best of both worlds...one pizza (1/2 Fiorentina & 1/2 Bianca Formaggi!!!) Our server, Maria, was fabulous! This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere.
