“Interesting menu and great decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Attentive staff made our visit memorable. Restaurant is located on second floor, near public parking. Extensive wine/bar menu - we ordered a local brew and a glass of Chianti. My salad of the day was not as great as I had hoped for, but our meals were very nice.

“Good food makes for a happy family after skiing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

After a COLD day of skiing on Whiteface Mountain, my wife and I decided to brave the village if Lake Placid with our three kids ages 5-13. Italian food is always a family favorite, so we chose Milano North on Main Street.

It is a very nice looking restaurant and the service was very friendly. Although there are no children's menus (nb, this also means no paper and crayons to keep children entertained, so bring your own), the restaurant happily made a plain cheese pizza and pasta with marinara sauce for our children. Both my wife and I loved our meals. They had a decent wine list by the glass and almost a dozen good beer selections plus a full bar with an extensive "martini" list.

All in all, it was a great meal for my tired family and we would definitely go back on our next trip to Lake Placid.

“Sorry, not so wonderful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We ate at Milano's this evening after making our reservation over a month ago as we also went to see "Stars on Ice" (great show). We waited over an hour for our salads, although tasty, we were glad we didn't order dinner or we might have missed our show. Not the best experience we may not return.

“Warm, cozy place with good food & great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We dined here Thursday evening at 7pm without a reservation & were seated after a 5 minute wait. The hostess was professional & friendly. The 3 of us were seated at a nice table that gave us a nice view of the holiday windows & the cozy interior of the restaurant. I loved the decor & was glad that we weren't sitting under the beautiful, yet dangerous looking tree limbs over diners heads. The place felt warm & inviting & every table was full.
My husband ordered hanger steak ( with tasty garlic mashed potatoes), I had veal piccata (which was cooked & seasoned perfectly, even pounded nice & thin), 6 yr old had spaghetti with olive oil. We shared a pear & goat cheese salad which didn't have any dressing on it. After trying to flag down the server numerous times, we requested oil & basalmic vinegar which she promptly brought to us & even removed the salad off of our bill which was never a concern to us. That is what I call proactive. After asking about how long the restaurant had been here & inquiring about business I discovered a little more about Lake Placid. The young brunette server was attentive, professional, informative, & friendly- nothing like the comparison to the server at Fireside restaurant. We will definitely be returning, with reservations, & a request to sit in our friendly server's section the next time we dine.

“Great overall Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012

We were a party of (3) adults and we had a wonderful meal and experience. We sat at the bar, and we were warmly greeted by Katie. We asked her for some recommendations and she mentioned the fig pizza and the tortellini. We tried these items plus a second pizza (mushroom, sausage, roasted red pepper), and a salad with pears and goat cheese. Everything came out quickly and it was all delicious. The manager or owner who was greeting people was very friendly and chatted with us. We also met some nice people at the bar that I enjoyed watching college football with. I highly recommend Milano North, and we would happily return here.
