Our group was partially served their salad and the two with soup and salad orders sat empty handed while the rest of their group ate their salad and then were the first to be served their main courses. Had we known how bad the salty, gravy style clam chowder was and the limp caeser salad too heavy with dressing-- we... More

Went here with other siblings and their spouses. Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Our waitress was really good except that she made a mistake on one of our orders and then forgot to refill the drink order for a little while and had to be reminded. Overall it was a nice evening.

We went for a family Sunday dinner. Started with the onion rings, Buffalo wings and potato skins. The rings were ok, greasy and some undercooked. The potato skins were great, just cut thin and a small portion for the price. The wings were not good, flavorless inside. We ordered the Havarti jalapeno burger with fries, a chicken quesadilla, and a... More

Our first time visit.. went with some friends who had been there before. Wasn't bad, but nothing remarkable about the place or the food. Prices seemed a bit high. A smallish pizza shouldn't cost 20 dollars.

had a fabulous lasagna dinner here, hubby had the chicken strips & salad, our friends had the Santa Fe burger & a pizza - we were all happy with our meals. These were all included in the "dinner & a movie" offer so each meal (with the movie ticket) was $19.95, including taxes! Although the place was busy, the service... More

They go back and fourth between delivering orders to my neighbourhood and not. lol. I called and tried to order delivery the other day and the girl who answered had to ask if they could deliver to my house. I heard the manager or whoever in the background. Sounded very rude and had a nasty tone. Said he refused three... More

It was a FUN nite wi the gals on the patio, after the movie :) Despite this restaurant being located at a busy intersection the noise (which was tolerable) did not distract the ambiance of the patio. Our server was bubbly and complimented our experience. We were well attended and WELL fed. The House Special was a hit! Had a... More

I had the pasta and the wife had the roast lamb. Service was good and our meals were tasty. Nice Greek decor and comfortable booths we will be back.

Milano's is always busy and that is a sign they do a good job for a fair price. Portions are good. Meals are generally served fast. Service is good. I have never had a bad meal. Great place for family gatherings. When there is a special holiday Milano's goes all out the decorations are mind blowing.

This is a fairly typical pizza, steak and pasta restaurant. The food quality is very good. A huge menu to choose from with a large gluten free selection. We visited on a Friday at 6PM and found it not crowded. We were seated immediately. Food was excellent. I had the house special pizza and my wife had the baked spaghetti.... More
