Milano's Greek salads with chicken have been a family favorite for over 30 years, but something recently ran off the rails. What immediately struck us was the uncharacteristically bland taste. Milano's signature salad dressing was watery and lacking some key ingredient which typically gives it...a satisfying taste and tang. You might ask how can you miss with kalamata olives, but they did. They were big, mushy, and tasteless. The chicken was overcooked and also lacked any distinctive flavor. Maybe there's been a staff change, or cost cutting taken in these inflationary times but, at nearly $ 15, Milano's Greeks salads sadly weren't up to their long established standards.More

Milano’s Family Restaurant If you’re seeking the BEST GREEK FOOD EXPERIENCE, look no further because this Family Greek restaurant “MILANO’S” in Springfield, VA will have your tastebuds satisfied! I’ve heard of this place 4 years ago from a family friend and decided to finally give...it a try. My one regret was not trying this place sooner! The first thing you see when entering the restaurant is the beautiful Milano family, their history, journey, and accomplishments as a family. Then you will notice this sort of family comfort when interacting with the staff, almost as if you’re part of the Milano’s family! The staff were extremely welcoming and professional. They were no wait line when we arrived. A few minutes later, every booth, and sitting were taken. Which speaks volumes to their reputations. Our waitress (Kasey’s) was full of energy and so SWEET! Her menu item recommendations were a knockout-the-park! My wife and I started with the Spanakopita (of course), it was truly so authentic and delicious! Then their house wings - such crispy and tasty! For our entry, we tried their Gyros and cheesesteak sub (the cheesesteak was FIRE!). Just sleepless, the gyros were huge too and we had them with extra feta and their house sauce. Their house sauce should be called the “Universal Sauce” That thing paired well with everything with tired! Wings, fries, subs, salad, gyros, chips, Spanakopita, etc…! I wish I had taken some of their house sauce home with me lol See the photos I’ve taken. For dessert of course had their homemade baklava. I have traveled to many places in the world and I can attest that their baklava is TOP 3! I think that the food at Milano’s without a doubt was excellent, and I’m extremely satisfied. But I feel like the comfort and homey feeling from the staff, and )owner (John) completed the whole experience for my wife and me. Without being said, I definitely recommend anyone seeking authentic Greek food and more to try Milano’s Family Restaurant!More

we have been coming to Milanos since the early 90's when i was first stationed in DC -- we absolutely loved it -- nice staff, great food in huge portions (almost two much, speedy service ... all the good stuff that makes you come back...... when we returned in the in 2004 and again in 2011 it was the same story. Unfortunately, the place has declined in the past few years -- servers and staff are still wonderful but the food is not very good -- stale salads, cold food,, gyros and soulvaki sandwiches with almost no meat, uncooked pizza, burned cheese steaks, stale bread, et al ... they can't even seem to make a decent grilled cheese sandwich ... we've kept trying because we have a long history with Milanos and hoped the cooks were just having a bad day ... unfortunately, we continue to be disappointed ... this is what happens when management stops paying attention to details.More

We both had the gyro (one with rice and the other fries). The gyro meat was hot, a good portion and delicious. The rice was adequate as were the fries. The salad was satisfactory. Will go back to try again.

This may be a family run operation ? My children and i attended a end of volleyball season dinner. The waitress delivered our pizza to the wrong table other members of our group helped themselves to our pizza. When i questioned the waitress she went...and grabbed the half eaten pizza and gave it to us. I told her I didn't want a half eaten pizza she said she would have the kitchen make us another half pizza. Can you say illegal ! This occurred in 2005. We haven't been back since . Good luck.More

Excellent preparation of my meal and certainly plenty of food. I stayed with Greek selections. Wonderful staff. 5 star experience in a 4 star venue, but that’s ok with me. I was there for the food and the pleasant service. Bonus—all that food at a...very appropriate price for me to come back often. Thank you.More

One of the best family breakfasts in the area. Maybe the best. Pancakes are excellent as are the any style eggs. I tried the combo special, loved it, took half home for the next day. Included two eggs any style, pancakes, home fries, sausage and...toast. Great place to go after church on Sunday. There lunch menu is excellent Italian.More

Went back for the first time in several years and it’s as good as ever. My husband had his favorite Veal Parmesan and I had the Eggplant Parm, both of which were delicious. Prompt, efficient service and reasonable prices. Would definitely recommend.

I meet a friend at Milanos for lunch once a month and always enjoy the homey atmosphere, the consistently attentive service and the tasty food. We've tried a variety of entrees, the gyro sandwiches and a several different pizzas. Milianos is a "go to" neighborhood...gathering place that we value and enjoy.More

Milano's used to be good, but after it's main competitor Victors closed down the quality has plummeted. In the past 8 weeks we have gotten 2 pizza's take-out and eaten there. The pizza wasnt baked enough, causing the dough and cheese to be soft and...mushy. The chicken parm was dry and overcooked. The service was just average, both times 2 separate servers messed up our order or forgot something. We are done, too many other food choices in the area.More

Hadn’t stopped by in years, got two chicken cheesesteak sandwiches with a side of fries and onion rings. Came to over $24- so not cheap. Plenty of parking. Friendly service. Chicken was in chunks and not too much. Bun could have been a little fresher....Just ok.More
