I lived in Boston for 7 years (including the north end for 2 years) and currently live in NYC. However, I grew up in the area and went to this restaurant at least once a month. To this day Milanese remains my all time favorite restaurant in terms of food and anyone I have brought there has been equally impressed.... More

We have been going here several times over the last 35 years. I read mixed reviews but must say that everything was excellent. The staff was plentiful and attentive. The food was excellent as always.

Please Do Not Book Your Event Here! We had a buffet for 24 adults, there were only 20 place settings when we arrived & they had to setup the extra settings ( which was just added to the existing table), we paid 18% Gratuity and had almost absolutely NO SERVICE AT ALL! Waitress asked when we arrived, what we wanted... More

The food is very good, the portions are plenty, and the atmosphere is "Family Oriented". Far from fancy, but a very good value.

The Milanese is a wonderful place for not only the food, but the ambience & Italian flavor & candles makes for a cozy visit. The food is tasty & priced very reasonable but the service is many times lacking. Accessible restrooms would be a huge plus here as it's one of the few restaurants I've visited where it's difficult to... More

The Milanese used to be the big game in town. The food these days is average at best and the restaurant is in need of serious updating. It's ok but there is certainly better Italian food to be had in Poughkeepsie!

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

Went on Father's Day. The food was great and the service was too. The Veal Parm and Chicken Parm were outstanding. It is so nice when you get Salad and the Pasta. 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
