Went to Milano with wife and two friends for pre-Theatre dinner. As friends were travelling from country we were really looking forward to the meal. Staff courteously showed us to our reserved table in Restaurant which was full of life. For starters we ordered 3 Calamari and one Bruschetta - disappointed that there was no Calamari available but at least... More

This is a nice restaurant, I believe it may have been a chain, I had Marguerite pizza, and it was good. There are more authentic places, but it was tasty, and if you're not looking for authenticity, just tasty. It would be a Good choice.

Yesterday evening, having failed to secure a table in our favourite restaurant, we 'ended up' in Milano, Temple Bar. Allocated a superb table in a corner by the window for myself, my daughter (19) and my friend. We had appetisers, mains, one bottle wine and one bottle sparkling water. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! And I am sooooo fussy (as is my... More

I used to love Milano's or therefore Pizza Express in the UK. However, as time goes by I feel more and more disillusioned. In this particular restaurant I've had to "fight" twice over my plate. The one and same member of staff came to take it from me, while I was still enjoying the food in my mouth. Having to... More

The staff here are lovely, and the food delicious, but our night was spoiled by a boisterous group (presumably a stag party) who were incredibly drunk, throwing beer around and breaking glasses. The restaurant should have asked them to leave. Our waitress, however, was wonderful and super efficient.

Having a pizza in Dublin when you're from New York city seems a bit out of place but the pizza at Milano's is pretty good abet it's a bit on the expensive side. We had the Meaty Fine Basilicata Romana. Meatballs made with a combination of lamb, chilli meats on capua peppers on a tomato base. Then drizzled with some... More

We stopped in for a late lunch and ordered 2 small side salads, 2 ginger beers, and 1 pepperoni pizza (8 slices). The salads were utterly bland and the pizza was just average. The bill came to $42.46. Not a good value.

Milanos is a great place to visit with friends and family. The food is a solid 9/10 and the price matches that very well. To add to that, the staff are friendly!
