Fantastic food! Our waiter, Ben-Hur! Humorous, friendly, knowledgable and very attentive. Delicious Beef Carpaccio, Salate Bistro Milano, Penne alla Vodka. If you don't see what you like on the menu, just ask, they will make it. Outside seating in the summer. We will be back as we are each year when we visit this awesome city.

I recently had lunch here with a group of family and friends. The service and food were quite good, and I was actually able to hear myself talk even though there were lots of people there. The food was tasty and the portions large. If it hadn't been such a hot day I may have taken my remains home. The... More

Spent the early afternoon here for Father's Day. It's a quiet place situated on the top end of forest avenue. Parking was good since it was the holiday. Now for the food. The seafood salad was fresh but lacked flavor. The spinach salad with the house balsamic was very good as was the rigatoni with broccoli rabe although you had... More

I ordered pizza at this place for many years but two years ago I ordered and the pizza was almost charred. I gave them the benefit and ordered again a few weeks later. It was even worse. I gave them one more chance by going in to eat at the restaurant and their pasta was cold and had little flavor.... More

Whatever you feel like eating? they have it. Scrumptuous pizza with any topping, fresh Italian parsley in their pasta dishes, fresh mozzarella cheese. everything freshly made to order, fresh ingredients and super fast service. You will not be disappointed if you choose this place. Delicious quality food.

Went with my Staten Island aunt to lunch--street was being worked on and difficult to navigate to the entrance (tho the street workers swept and cleared the area to help us get into restaurant without going through too much debris!!--thanks!!) Once we got in, we were greeted nicely and orders taken-even though there was a large table in the midst... More

This is the second party that I have been to at Cafe Milano, and they never seem to fail to deliver an amazing evening!!! The food is amazing, the price is right, the waitstaff and owner (I think the older gentleman is the owner..?) is such a nice and generous person and you can tell that he really loves and... More

Cafe Milano has become our go to place in our neighborhood for pizza and pasta. We still prefer the thin crust from Pier 76 and Joe & Pats, but the grandma pie from the Cafe never disappoints. Delivery to home is quick and hot. Francais dishes like shrimp or chicken are also delicious. Great place to stop in for. Quick... More
