Took our 3 y/o with us to have lunch and ordered the meatball panini and pasta. Oh my word, the meatballs are fantastic! The portions are huge, the food wonderful and the service was great! It's a pretty nice place but we felt comfortable taking our son and everyone was super nice. Highly recommend!!!!

Decent local Italian place. Opened after the original (and great) Milano Club burned up in downtown Lima. The Milano Cafe fits in with the mall location. Can be a little pricey for the selection but mostly mid range $. Has a nice full bar side, and is great for new years with a band. Otherwise, it's not the outstanding local... More

Family owned business for 4 generations. Good food & service. Italian food. More upscale than fast food. Worth the visit.

After working at a wellness event at St Rita's, a nice lunch was needed. I had been to Milano Cafe earlier in the year on business and recommended it. We arrived as they opened for lunch at eleven. We were seated in the bar, and the server brought water and menus. She seemed a little distracted, but was friendly. We... More

Angie and Alexis were our servers for a group of 54. They did a fantastic job! We had menu selections of stuffed chicken Parmesan, fettuccine Alfredo, New York strip sirloin, baked three cheese ravioli, and salmon. All entrée choices were excellent! Highly recommend this restaurant! Friendly, accommodating for a large group of Southerners traveling through to Mackinac Island

Service was good and so was the food. A little pricey for what it is. Wine was terrible. Had the same wine at another restaurant the week before do I suspect the bottle had been open for awhile. To their credit they did comp the wine

👍 They make a great burger 😜 Several selections of different gourmet burgers. Including one with egg on it If you like a good burger it's a good one! I'm not a fan of seafood but I've heard that there seafood is good from a reliable source.

Our first time. So glad we came. The Portobello stick appetizer was good. I had the Amoretto Pork Chops. What a great taste. The chops were thick and juicy. My wife had the Pesto Cheese ravioli. She loved it. The house salad was good too. And the device was great. Courses were brought out just in time. I hate when... More

We ate here twice on a business trip to Lima. The food was very good (the calamari was excellent) and the winelist was decent and reasonably priced. We were pleasantly surprised that we got right in on a Saturday night. The restaurant decor is a bit tired but the food was very good. About the only complaint is that one... More
