Our family love going to Milano's for dinner and my husband and I love their seafood fettuccine, but it's not a regular menu item; it is only available Friday and Saturday. Pizzas are really good as well (try the Maui Luau) and the meat lasagna is to die for. Staff are all very friendly and pretty quick service, even when... More

Very accommodating to split this dish, which was great since one entree cost 18.99. that way I had wine and hubby had delicious apple pie. We felt the service was good and we liked the updated decor from the past Romeo's which is the last time I'd been there. A little high priced but I'd go back for a special... More

Our hotel told us this was a good restaurant. They were not mistaken. The food was great and the service equally so. Would recommend reservations on a weekend as this restaurant is extremely popular. My husband had the roast lamb leg and I had the moussaka. Both dishes were well prepared and delicious. Bring your appetite as the portions are... More

The food was well seasoned and therefore tasty; particularly the pasta dish I ate which contained lots of herbs. Portions were very generous - too generous for us Brits! Staff were very personable.

I took my daughter and year old grandson to Mllano's for lunch on Saturday. The waitress was so prompt and attentive. She brought us a sample of the soup of the day to see if my grandson would like it as there was curry in it. He loved it so she brought a cup for him to eat. My daughter... More

My girlfriend and I finally went to a place we drive past twice a day. I dunno what took us so long. We both had pizza and it was delicious! Hand tossed crust, wonderful sauce and a generous helping of toppings left me wanting more. Lots of great specials, plenty of desserts and a pretty mean margarita! We will return.

I've never quite understood the rave reviews Milano's gets, we go here on occasion (usually when someone else suggests it) and the food is always very average. Decided tonight to try taking out an order of souvlaki and a spaghetti dish. Could be the worst souvlaki I've ever had. Potatoes were dried out, rice was plain and boring and the... More

In for business and staying at the Best Western nearby. The selling feature was proximity to the hotel. Nice location, tables are "box restaurant" like, as is the layout. Nothing cozy. Service was very attentive and to me the best part. The menu was "the usual," nothing inventive or different. The wine list was disappointing. For an Italian place, the... More
