I love this restaurant. My family has been going there since they opened maybe 40 years ago. Lately it had "fallen off", but I'm glad to report it's BACK. If you are lucky you will find Sandy overseeing the dining room. We had their hot appetizer plate, stuffed shrimp and the best francoise sole this side of the Atlantic. I... More

So many restaurants now offer one or the other. They had a Fish Special of Mussels, Lobster etc over pasta with claim sauce. Great Garlic Bread. It was... More

This is the second time my boyfriend & I have eating at the Milanese. Both times we were here to see concerts and the restaurant is not far from the venue. I had the chicken Contadina (see picture). It was absolutely delectable although a little on the salty side. But let's be honest, that's what makes it taste so good.... More

A recent visit for dinner was a very satisfying meal at this long-time Poughkeepsie restaurant. The menu is extensive, with a full selection of pasta favorites, chicken, seafood, beef, and evening specials. Meals are accompanied by a basket of warm garlic bread, and a very good house salad, which most of us had topped with the crumbled bleu cheese vinaigrette.... More

All of the usual favorites. You won't find much avant garde in the way of presentation or choices, but dependable good food, and good sized portions. Been there forever. Sauce is very tasty.

This restaurant is owned by an old Italian family with at least 2 generations working it. Delicious homemade Italian dishes and is right on lower Main St. in Poughkeepsie!
