My husband and I ordered in from Millie's yesterday. Their Arcadia salad was very good ...BUT their 'fresh spinach pizza' was disgusting. I'd love to use another word, but disgusting fits the bill. We opened the pizza box for the big reveal: a small soggy...dough...with spinach leaves all over it drizzled with balsamic vinegar. It was like somebody bought a crappy pie do-it -yourself pie crust, opened up a bag of spinach leaves from the supermarket and dumped it haphazardly on top. I kid you not. Where was the parmagiana reggiana; where was the fig spread, etc??? The written description did not at all match what we received. Just a soggy soggy crust with leaves. Not acceptable. And we paid a lot of money for this poor excuse for a pizza, too. We had hoped to love your restaurant- but we were very disappointed instead. 👎👎👎More

The pizza at Millie's is very good, as was the salad we ordered . My husband had the meatballs and said they were just ok. However, the service was very disappointing. I really hate to write a poor review about a small business, especially as...a former server myself, but it was so lackluster it was noticeable and I must share. When I arrived with my son in a stroller, there were five staff members huddled around the host stand and they just watched me struggle with the front door instead of helping me open it. Then no one greeted us, they just kind of stared. I asked for a table and they acted as if they didn't want to sit us because "we didn't have a reservation," but it was 5 pm and only 2 other tables were taken. Just very disappointing. The manager was very kind to us but the staff acted like we were an inconvenience. Really too bad.More

We had dinner before a show at the Mayo, location is great for pre-show. After being ignored by the front desk for a bit we told to "take a table" with no menu or QR code to scan for menu. Wait staff was fine but...watching the clean-up on other tables, I didn't see any sanitizing, just new plates/utensil set-up. Food came quickly and so did the gnats.More

I travel a lot for work and found myself south of Morristown, NJ. Before I left my job site I looked up pizza spots nearby and was skeptical because of the rating on Yelp. The look of the pies online appeared to be legit so...I figured I’d take a leap of faith and give it a shot. Pizza ranges from little caesars to authentic pies and everyone has their specific opinion of what is “good”. For me, wood fire Neapolitan pizza is THE BEST. When I find a place that I want to give a chance I order the basic and if the basic passes then I will proceed with the intricate. Millies in Morristown passed on my judgement for the basic margherita. I went on a quiet afternoon with no one really there, sat inside because it was deathly hot, and was tended to quickly, politely, and enthusiastically - my godly looks, smooth talking, and wicked expensive cologne may or may not have played a role in this but you can just SIT DOWN IN THE BACK KAREN! First judgement comes from the appearance of the crust: bulging, crispy, and more enticing than my prom date in junior high school. I ripped it open to see the innards and was pleasantly surprised. First bite, crust only, and surprisingly I tasted salt …. not in a bad way …. it was perfectly balanced and delightful, mixing dough and salt taste that was gloriously delicious. One issue with pies like this is that the crust can be stellar but then the middle can lean towards soggy but impressively these slices had body. Not overpowering but just enough to hold it’s form when lifted, folded, and deep throated, I mean bit. WOW. How did I fall upon this gem randomly NO THANKS TO THE NEGATIVE YELP REVIEWS??!!?!?!!?! Then I judge the sauce and cheese. Sauce, slightly sweet but perfectly balanced, tasting tomato, olive oil, and salt. The cheese was subtle but flavorful incorporating the dough, sauce, and slight shake of red pepper flakes I added. I was beyond pleased… ONE CRITIQUE is that the crust was not 1,000% fluffy, a little dense but still a delight. I often intertwine the service, decor, and general experience whilst dining and since this was a slow time I will admit that I cannot attest to the majority of that but being on a little main street and lucking out with parking, my overall rating is 4 stars and I will most certainly be back with my wife to see if you can pass under her standards as well. Really great job from this place.More

The restaurant uses very nice ingredients and makes a delicious pizza. We had the meatballs with vodka sauce and they were very good – but nothing out of the ordinary from just a good meatball. The Italian sausage on the pizza was the sweetest sausage...I’ve ever tasted. The salads are nice although $3.75 for a small 8 ounce bottle of Coca-Cola is a rip off. We also noticed that the music was a little bit loud at lunchtime – giving it kind of the feeling you were walking into a Hollister store at the mall. Overall we enjoyed our meal quite a bit and although you will pay a premium price, we would recommend it.More

One of best restaurants for pizza both coal and wood fire pizza. Their salads are five star, recommend the Arcadian and the wedge salad. Don’t forget to order the meatballs.

Millie's Old World has both coal fired pizza and wood fired pizza. Both options are incredible. The wood fired variety is a bit softer while the coal fired really chars the crust nicely. There are so many good options here you can't go wrong. Service...is great, we didn't have a problem.More

We went early (5:30) on a rainy night and only one other couple was in the place. Even so, we were there for 5 minutes before the waitress finally tossed down the menus on the table (couldn't even bother to give each of us one)....I had a bottle of wine (it's BYO) and it's a good thing I had my own corkscrew because the waitress certainly didn't when she brought two small dollar-store wine glasses for our hearty red wine. We ordered antipasta and meatball marinara parm platters. It came about 10 minutes later and I had to ask if we got bread (which we would have liked 10 minutes earlier with our wine). "Oh, yeah," she replies and goes to get some. We finished without another visit from the waitress. Just in time too as a party of 9 yelling & screaming kids and 6 adults descended on the place, thereby ending any consideration of coffee or dessert. Food was fine. Judgement: better for takeout than eating there.More

Autumn came briskly the day before my wife and I stopped at Millie's. Temperatures were in the low 50's, she wore a sleeveless blouse, I in a sport coat and long sleeve black tee as we greeted the hostess. Inside was full and would be...a 30 minute wait. We didn't have that time as we were to see a show in less than an hour. So we opted to take the outside seating and join the other dozen or so people outside on the lounge type seating around tables. Millies had one outdoor heater going that produced enough heat to warm you.... if you stood right next to it. My wife, who is usually running warm all the time, was now cold. being the gentleman I am, I gave her my sport coat. I remained chilly for the remainder of the meal as we were about 8 feet from that outdoor heater. The waitress came, we placed our order and within, 15 minutes our beautiful puffy crust pizza came out. Absolutely delicious. We opted for the "small" pie which gave us 3 small slices each which we were able to polish off no problem. I was honestly impressed with the pizza, very tasty and very satisfying. Being the hot ticket in town, Millie's has carved out a niche that few on that street can compete with. Although there were other sidewalk cafe type places on that street with heaters outside, none of them had patrons outside eating. Being in close proximity to the Morristown Performing Arts Center has them in prime location for would-be show goers and I have to imagine the seating issue is constant during must-see shows. I didn't take notice of what was on either side of Millie's but perhaps it might be in Millie's best interest to pursue expanding into one of the adjoining spaces to accommodate the crowds and increase their seating, if only a little bit more than they had. I didn't mind sitting outside, I liked it actually, just a little bit warmer and I would have been more comfortable. The staff seemed like nice accommodating people and our waitress, though a little more portly than the space allowed, was nice and attentive. Definitely worth a stop if you're in Morristown.More

We had the Millies Special Mediterranean Salad to start. Large and very fresh. Lots of kalamata olives and feta. We ordered Meatballs with fresh ricotta cheese. YUMMY! Then we had a clam pie and a coal-fired meat lovers pie. My mom said it was the...best clam pie she's ever had! The meat lovers pie had so much meat on it you could feed an army! All of the food was fresh and delicious. The Maitre D saw the fresh ricotta had melted with the heat of the balls, so he gave us an extra one on the house! The beer was spot on cold and they served our favorite, Guinness! I've been here several times and have never been disappointed. I highly recommend this Italian restaurant. It's casual with a full bar and specialty cocktails. You can sit inside or out. I will be going back again and again...More
