After visiting pubs, we looked for a quieter place for dinner. We were seated and served quickly even though the restaurant was busy. We enjoyed both the wine, pizza and the eggplant parmesan. We even ran into friends we had made earlier that evening at one of the Temple Bar pubs. All of Dublin seems friendly.

Milano is obviously the same as Pizza Express in the Uk. The menu is exactly the same and the quality is just as good. A great place to visit with fussy children if they like the chain in the uk. The service was excellent and the dough balls were the best I've had at any of their restaurants.

We visited Milano on Saturday 16th July and had a fantastic meal. We arrived as a group of 12 after 9pm and waited 30 minutes for a table, brilliant in temple bar on a Saturday night. The food was fantastic with a wide range on offer. The service was outstanding, I didn't catch the servers name, however he went out... More

Even though we arrived at an incredibly busy time (tables were full & there was a queue waiting) we were seated as quickly as possible with a warm welcome. Our order was taken and all service and food was excellent. I have to say the staff handle themselves very professionally, a waitress made a mistake with another customers order &... More

Pizza was wonderful, as was the salad we ordered. They had a kids menu and were very accommodating of our kids. Many restaurants in this area are closed on slower or non-theater nights, but this seemed to be open when others weren't. Would definitely recommend.

Stumbled upon Milano as we recognised the logo as Pizza Express, happy to see that the menu was the same. I was able to order a Pianta, my vegan staple for this restaurant. Good attentive service without being overbearing. The quality of the food was top notch too. A good all rounder, prices weren't that much more than city centre... More

I am used to the Pizza Expresses in London so when I saw Milano's logo I got really excited because it was so familiar and their food is affordable and delicious. The Dough Balls are a must - especially with their garlic butter. I'm drooling just thinking about it. The pizza is good too. You get to choose between and... More

17 of us visited here on my hen do. We were not disappointed, the food was lovely from salads and pasta to the amazing pizzas. Portion sizes were really good, service was a bit slow but would recommend visiting here for good food for good value for money.
