We enjoyed a delectable lunch before going to the theatre on a Sunday afternoon. The menu contains many options for people with food allergies and vegetarians. The waitstaff was very attentive and engaging which enhanced our experience

Ravioli di Zucca, that is to say pumpkin ravioli. And I eat them every time I visit. Since my first time was near Halloween I took the waiter's advice with a grain of salt. But they are really original and an excellent dish. Milano has a good list of Italian cuisine but to find something completely different is something to... More

This is a beautiful little bistro with excellent food and friendly service! The warm, chewy bread brought to the table was delicious with olive oil, so I was happy to see the same type of bread on my panino. My son and I both loved the prosciutto panino which came with a lightly tossed mixed salad. My husband devoured his... More

So disappointed. Looking forward to authentic Italian food. I have food allergies and they delivered my plate with tomatoes all around the food. I was very specific. Waiter repeated the list. Still delivered a plate of death. Even the tiramisu was just ok. Didn't finish any of my food cause why waste the calories on just ok. I won't go... More

We went to this restaurant because it was close to the New York Hilton where we were staying. My husband ordered the Tagliolini Seafood which is a black ink pasta with clams,mussels, scallops, shrimp and calamari in a light tomato sauce. It was fabulous, and the sauce was wonderful. I ordered the eggplant parmesan which was cooked with eggplant, zucchini,... More

Stumbled on this bistro as I was walking near my hotel. I was attracted by its modern decor & its authentic Italian menu. I am so glad I decided to eat there as we loved everything about it. Our waiter was extremely welcoming, friendly & knowledgeable. Service was attentive but not overbearing. All our questions were answered politely. Each course... More

We visited Sunday noon for branch/ breakfast. Service was unbelievably slow. On tip of that they got half of what we ordered each time. The side potatoes on our omelette resembled more carrots than potatoes. On top of all that they brought us the bill with the top (20%) tip already included (handwritten on the bill). Finally there was a... More

I had lunch here with a friend. She recommended Bistro Milano after several visits. We both ordered from the summer prefix menu. I had the salmon. My friend has the scallops dish. We both enjoyed our meals. See photos. We were disappointed in the spinach salad. I had to add oil and vinegar. It was all spinach, maybe one strawberry... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
