I had the pasta and the wife had the roast lamb. Service was good and our meals were tasty. Nice Greek decor and comfortable booths we will be back.

Milano's is always busy and that is a sign they do a good job for a fair price. Portions are good. Meals are generally served fast. Service is good. I have never had a bad meal. Great place for family gatherings. When there is a special holiday Milano's goes all out the decorations are mind blowing.

This is a fairly typical pizza, steak and pasta restaurant. The food quality is very good. A huge menu to choose from with a large gluten free selection. We visited on a Friday at 6PM and found it not crowded. We were seated immediately. Food was excellent. I had the house special pizza and my wife had the baked spaghetti.... More

I think this was our third visit to Milanos and arriving on a Tuesday night we were pleasantly surprized that their excellents pastas were 35% off. Even though it was the middle of a hot, summer evening the place was nearly full and it's a big place. Always been super satisfied as the dishes arrive piping hot out of the... More

Came back to Milanos with two friends, I will start by saying I haven't eaten here in awhile as the last two times it was awful. Well. I thought I'd give it another go as I'm tired of Cactus Club and Browns. Sorry to say nothing has changed. The decor is dated, like being stuck perpetually in the 90's -... More

My husband & I ordered delivery the other night. The whole meal including the beverages were inedible. That's $60 that I will never get back! We ordered the hummus and pita and the hummus was a to-go container of mashed garlic we could not eat it. The two medium pizza's were both so greasy that we were only able to... More

Our family love going to Milano's for dinner and my husband and I love their seafood fettuccine, but it's not a regular menu item; it is only available Friday and Saturday. Pizzas are really good as well (try the Maui Luau) and the meat lasagna is to die for. Staff are all very friendly and pretty quick service, even when... More

Very accommodating to split this dish, which was great since one entree cost 18.99. that way I had wine and hubby had delicious apple pie. We felt the service was good and we liked the updated decor from the past Romeo's which is the last time I'd been there. A little high priced but I'd go back for a special... More

Our hotel told us this was a good restaurant. They were not mistaken. The food was great and the service equally so. Would recommend reservations on a weekend as this restaurant is extremely popular. My husband had the roast lamb leg and I had the moussaka. Both dishes were well prepared and delicious. Bring your appetite as the portions are... More
