The pizza here is good, but not exactly great in my view. It's definitely overpriced for what you get. However the lasagna is well worth it.

Tuesday is pasta day at Milano. My husband had the 8 inch individual pizza with 3 meat toppings for $10.99. I had a fantastic meat lasagna with garlic toast for $10.99 also. Coffee is expensive at $2.99 a cup. Service was great. We only had an hour to eat & our waitress had it there within 15 minutes. We have... More

The place was pretty empty but had tons of staff walking around and being loud. We ordered two specials and were not offered a choice of type of salad. When I asked the waitress she told me it only came with Caesar. Food took forever, staff were rude and very poor service.

I order pizza from this restaurant regularly. It is always great. I ordered the other day and received a pizza that I had an issue with. I very politely called and voiced my concerns. I was transferred to the manager who didn't apologize, or address my concern just said they'd do something different. No thanks for letting them know, no... More

The service here is almost always great and it's a good sized place. The lasagna is the best thing on the menu I believe. It's been voted the best lasagna in town for well over a decade straight. The burgers are very good too and the fries are certainly worthy. The pizza is good here, but sorry not nearly the... More

We have eaten here a couple of times. Good food, but nothing special. Service was fair, although somewhat slow the last time. Overall would call the restaurant average.

I have been frequenting this eatery for several years and each & every time, my visits have been perfect. I am greeted at the door in a friendly manner, if there is a wait, they are quite accurate on how long the wait will be and once seated at a table, the server is present and at your service within...
