I love this Milanos! Make the best Pizza Pianta, pizza without cheese, with jalapeños and spinach. I add chilli oil for an extra kick. Just love it, nice staff, clean, friendly, good wine. I have one gripe: the wine per glass price is extortionate. More than some top restaurants charge. Perhaps Milano's could create an offer for this. Grazie

I had last been in this restaurant approximately fifteen years ago, and it's good to see a restaurant lasting the test of business time. The owners are clearly doing something right and that should be applauded. Five of us sat down for dinner prior to attending a party locally, and we sampled pizza, beer and wine. The service was excellent... More

Ate with a group of business colleagues who wanted easy dining and Milano's worked out for us. Pizza was very good and we were well looked after by the staff. Main criticism is Dublin prices are back to their worst and represent questionable value - this tends to be city wide. Basic cheesecake desert at €7 is not Pizzaria pricing... More

Great customer service experienced. We were in Dublin with a dog and looking for somewhere to eat with the dog. The outside area seemed like a great idea but started to rain. Didn't dampen our spirits though. The food was good and plenty of choice to satisfy the kids and adults. The team did their best to look after us... More

Was a little awkward here. The waiter was just brilliant. Couldnt have asked for a better one as he up sold everything on the menu, and joked and was attentive. But the food was so sub par. Dough balls was the best part of the meal.

The aroma will not let you leave without tasting their food. When I was told there were no small portions, I gave in and ordered a large, thin-crusted. And I finished it.

Milano used to be the value-for-money option, but it has noticably ratcheted up its prices in recent years. Service was fine but the pizzas - distinctly average in both quality and size - can range up to 17-18 euros which is insane: that's the price of a decent meat main course in a good restaurant! Food overall was reasonably tasty... More

Excellent pizza. Very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly. Good drinks selection. Good location for a few drinks after in neighbouring bars.

This restaurant was the first Milano to open in Ireland. Situated in one of Dublin's most prestigious streets, between two of the city's most renowned bars, this restaurant is known for it's vibrant upbeat atmosphere. Extremely spacious and well designed dining room, complemented by two elegant waiting areas. During the day the use of light adds to the perfectly chosen interior and at night the carefully designed lighting creates an intimate feel to this spacious restaurant.
