Milano's is the best!!! – Great service and very friendly. Food is excellent and prices are great. My girls love their hot wings!!!
Exorbitant prices for paltry cafeteria cack – My husband and I have been twice to Milano's. Each time the food has been ghastly and anything BUT worth the amount of money they charge. I can go to Knife & Fork in Mt. Holly and get better "Italian" food for half the price.
But, hey, if you actually enjoy spaghetti that tastes as though it came out of a tin, or crave garlic bread with no garlic -By all means, consider Milano's for your next gastric disaster.
Don't expect Northeast style Italian-American food – The "meat sauce" has the consistency of Hormel Chili, and the flavor of Chef Boyardee sauce. If you expect Italian-American food you would find in New York or the Northeast, this is NOT the place to visit. If you think Chef Boyardee is Italian-American food, then this IS the place for you!
Affordable & Good Dining Experience – While my Italian heritage has influenced my taste for fine italian food...from New York to the North End of Boston...this restaurant is worth visiting..both for atmosphere, price & quality of food.
My entree was the eggplant parmigiana with angel hair pasta seasoned with garlic & grated cheese. Although the tomato sauce was rather plain...I found the eggplant crisp & tasty, angel hair served with garlic & cheese added to the aha experience for the price of $10.65. Entree came with fresh crisp salad, warm bread & homemade dressing. I requested extra olives with my salad and was given an extra plate of olives for which I was unexpectedly charged. Dessert was Tiramisu...while not homemade was good to the palate.
Linen napkins & clean environment all added to the ambience. While I've eaten at higher priced Italian restaurants around the country...most were wonderful...there were those which offered nothing better to offer in food quality & took a rather big pinch from my purse..
All in all service & food at Milanos was a good experience...Will dine here again with the hope of another good choice of entree.
Good and reasonable – Overall service, quality, atmosphere and price were excellent. Steven our waiter was spot on for everything (and I'm a former waitress and picky!). Started with fresh salad and what tasted like homemade dressing (very good). Good pricing as they had dinner in a range of prices up to around $22. $10.95 for nice size portions of the eggplant and tasty garlic butter angel hair pasta (brought 1/2 home of both). Sauce was 'okay to good’ 3 stars', as the sauce did taste a bit like Chef Boyardee, which I didn't like, but as we all know Chef Boyardee has been around for years for a reason (a lot of people love it!). I'm just used to a different type of sauce and by no means was bad just different. I finished dinner with good coffee and a warm chocolate pecan caramel cake (yummy!). Italian Mom, had Tiramisu (I prefer homemade) but my Mom liked it. To me, Tiramisu wasn't great but was good (3 stars), just tasted store brought. We will definitely go back because of the service, quality of food and prices. This restaurant was well worth it. Look forward to our next visit. Overall 4 and not 5 stars because of sauce, no homemade Tiramisu and older blond cashier, who came across as a bit cold and uncaring. Her ‘measured’ words, her body language and appeared lack of caring wasn’t a good representation for this fine restaurant.
BEST ITALIAN EVER!!! – Milano's is absolutely the best restaurant around! We love everything on the menu, but our favorite items are their Chicken Zita (Alfredo Sauce), Lasagna, Marinated Beef Strips, Chicken Piccata....and we can't leave out their FABULOUS Pizzas & Subs! We've been dining at Milano's about 15 years, and still have not found a restaurant that compares! Their service is great, the portions are huge, and the prices are reasonable. We've had several parties there, as well, and we love their private banquet room---it's beautiful and very spacious. Always good to make a reservation if you have a large party so they can be prepared to wait on you, especially on the weekend, but it's not mandatory.....they've seated a large group of us many times without a reservation......I just prefer to let them know ahead of time. They also have a great kids menu, and we feel very comfortable taking our children with us.....they love the food too! Thumbs up Milano's!!!
Although the atmosphere is nice, the food is seriously lacking. My boyfriend had the cannelloni and I had the chicken parmigiana. The chicken in my dish was not breaded and tasted like it had simply been boiled. The sauce on both our dishes tasted exactly like the sauce in a can of Chef Boyardee ravioli. The mozzarella sticks and marinara sauce to dip in were the best out of everything...most likely because it was from a frozen package and jar.
NOT THE BEST – I come from a family that enjoys traditional Italian food, and this place missed the mark. The ambience was good, and the wine was good, but the food brought to mind frozen chicken breasts like you would buy at the neighborhood grocer. I was not happy with it, especially for the price. I will not return.
Mama Mia! Milano's! – Gastonia is growing and adding new restaurants everyday. Milano's has been around for awhile. Their food is excellent! They have veal dishes to die for! Order a sub! Their salads are always fresh, chilled and crisp. The salad dressing is fresh, too, since they make most of it! Like baked dishes? They have plenty! Try the Canneloni (my favorite), the Ravioli and the Lasagna! Want angel hair? You are at the right place! Here is is combined with garlic, butter and herbs...mmmmmm! They have a reasonable assortment of wines, beers, etc. In fact, order an evening meal and get a free glass of Sangria or wine! I love this place! You will, too!
