First and probably last visit as we were with friends who live locally. To be fair our friends are totally sold on the restaurant. We went on Valentine's night and were greeted by friendly face of manager and staff. Glass of bubbly and a rose for the ladies very welcome. Immediate impressions very good. Location is an old bank I believe and has been tastefully converted. Waitress had to visit the bar a few times to see if they sold certain drinks but in the main she was very attentive and helpful. They had a special menu with options at each course. My smoked salmon on top of salmon pâté and bruschetta was great. The pasta starter also looked good. Main courses were fine but nothing exceptional. That said the set price of £49.95 for a couple was very good especially as they came round twice with strawberries dipped in chocolate. The one outstanding feature of the night was the singer whose rendition of the Skyfall song was superb. Worth a visit especially to try the Italian food I think.

Myself and my best friend went to Bar Milano for some dinner, safe to say I left satisfied and eager to return. The service was spot on with Lello being very attentive and making sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our night out. The food is also delicious, there is a wide variety and something to suit everyone, however the profiteroles are to die for! Despite being quite a big restaurant, there is a cosey atmosphere and the different levels add a dimension to Bar Milano that not many restaurants have, especially in the southside area of Glasgow. Bar Milano will cater to your needs and make sure you leave a happy diner. I look forward to returning soon!

We booked a pretheatre meal here for 5 people and they were very accommodating. Arrived just a few minutes late and staff were welcoming.
Ordered food and drinks and asked for a jug of water with it. All good so far. Drinks came and starters came ( no water) so we asked again. Starters were very tasty and looked good however part way through a Bruschetta one of our group found a hair ( eyebrow or forearm based on the size) and we called the waiter over ( I think he may have been the owner too) who didn't apologise about the hair ( nor did he attempt to justify it) but matter of factly asked if we wanted something else to which we said yes.
Incidentally we still didn't get the water.
Replacement for bruschetta came and all was good.
Main courses came and all was really nice although we had to ask for a 3rd time for the jug of water.
It came after the 3rd request but not quickly.
Overall food was great but service was really slow and quite disjointed. Will I go back? Not sure. I liked the food but not the service. In fairness to the manager we were not charged at all for the starter or main for the person who had the hair in their starter but I'm not sure that this would be enough to change my opinion

This was our first visit to Bar Milano and will not be our last. The staff were great, friendly proffesional and genuine. The food was top notch and on a different level from surrounding venues. We had 4 people in our party with everyone remarking on the quality of the food & sevice. There was a relaxed atmosphere with the owner Lello, making sure everything was running smoothly. Entertainment was also an unexpected surprise with a singer delivering classics from 9pm onwards. The girl singing was really talented, putting on a great show. The volume of the entertainment was spot on - loud enough to enjoy & quiet enough for converation to flow. The restaurant had an atmosphere which i haven't found in any other venue in the city. This is a fantastic night out, if you are looking for great food served by great people and to be thoroughly entertained, Bar Milano is where you need to spend your weekend.

1st class service. 1st class food! The ambience in bar Milano is second to none. Lello and Darren cannot do enough to make your visit a great night out whether you want a quiet meal or to eat with friends. Do yourself a favour and visit!
