Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We’ve been dining at this restaurant for a couple of years and, under the management of an owner by the name of JK, it was great. Friendly greeting, excellent service and great food. Not any more! The fact that there were hardly any customers on...a Saturday night was a dead giveaway. The waitress didn’t seem to have a good command of the English language and spent most of the time chatting to her young male colleague behind the counter ( rather than serve diners). We ordered garlic mushrooms and the accompanying bread clearly came from the freezer as it hadn’t been toasted sufficiently. The main course took an age to arrive no doubt due to the fact that takeaways obviously took preference over eat in diners. Some customers who came in after us got up and left due to lack of service. We could hear someone in the kitchen admonishing one of his colleagues over a particular dish. The mains finally arrived and my chicken carbonara was literally swimming in a watery cream liquid. That was enough. We explained our grievances to the ‘manager’ who had no hesitation in letting us go without payment. Such a shame. This used to be our ‘go to’ Italian but unless and until we start seeing some excellent reviews we’ll give it a wide berth.More

We had been to this restaurant a couple of years ago and heard it had changed ownership. The food has definitely deteriorated. The carbonara was inedible - the bacon was raw, one small slice of mushroom and the sauce drowned the penne. We won’t be...back.More

I haven’t been to Milan’s for a couple of years. Food was disappointing, staff got our order wrong and food not fully cooked or over cooked. Service was terrible. A far cry from what it was a couple of years ago

This business was the most awful restaurant I have ever been too, They were extremely understaffed for the amount of customers present. They had one waitstaff on for the entire restaurant who was clearly new but did very well. The owner was also very unprofessional...and was wearing no gloves or hair net or apron. He came out to talk to the young waitress when she had accidentally not charged me for corkage and yelled at her for making a slight mistake.More

Absolutely beautiful entrees and very generous sized meal (you will probably need a doggy bag) The service was excellent and our waitress was extremely accommodating and polite. I will certainly be returning for more enjoyable meals. Compliments to the chef and kitchen staff .

I have been frequenting Milan’s for over ten years and after being away for a while was very disappointed with the pizza prepared by the new owners. No longer a hand made base but a supermarket cardboard concoction. The toppings were passable but lacking the...Italian flair and flavours of before. Will not be returning.More

We ordered takeaway and when we got the food home we realised something had gone very wrong with Milan’s. The pizzas were so dry and overcooked they were barely edible. The crust was like cardboard. The prawn and scallop pizza had one prawn per slice....We found three scallops. The Volcano pizza was equally dry and tasteless. Worst pizzas we’ve ever had. The Caesar salad was limp cos lettuce, powdered Parmesan, crispy bacon, a boiled egg and no dressing. We tried to eat it but it also went into the bin. We were baffled as we used to love Milan’s. I’ve since read it has changed hands. As Buderim locals it is very sad to see what has become of what was a great Italian restaurant. We won’t be back :(More

We dined in last night and ordered the carbonara fettuccine and a gluten free pizza. Both meals were amazing. The ambience wasn't quite as nice as previously but the food was just as good.

We have been dining at Milan’s for years and attended tonight with the new owners for first time Unfortunately now not owned by italians so authenticity of Italian dining lost Two ordered veal scallipine and very dry as no sauce which mentioned after ordering. Couldn’t...understand a sauce was missing. Also rocket served with it which is not authentic. Those that ordered it very disappointed Tiramisu is ordered in and now not made on site. Another disappointment Waitresses had no idea of Italian cuisine It has now lost the Italian charm We won’t be dining back there anytime soon Not the Milan’s you may be used too. A warning to you all you regularsMore

As far as local Italian-style restaurants go, if you live in or around Buderim, you could not ask for better. The locals are indeed lucky. The pizza (not sure of the name, but it came with the lot) was great. It was very filling. It...was shared as an entree. For my main course, I ordered veal. The veal was very tender and very tasty. Nice outdoor street-dining atmosphere and good staff. But what impressed me was the steady stream of people coming to collect pizzas. Every few minutes a person would come. I even saw one person struggling under the weight of approx. 6 pizzas.More

We have been to Milans many times and are generally always happy with the food and service. We celebrated a family birthday here last night and meals were all great (lovely big prawns, great meatball pizza and good pasta) apart from the Volcano pizza, which...was extremely hot due to an excess of chilli flakes (our family loves spicy food, but this was burn your mouth hot!). We were also disappointed not to be able to have our usual end of meal affogatos as the coffee machine had been turned off at just after 8 pm. We love coming to this family run restaurant, but wish that there could be consideration for patrons that enjoy a coffee and chance to linger and chat after their meal. We’ll definitely keep coming back, but hope that this review provides some constructive feedback.More

The shared antipasto platter for two was good and at $18 most enjoyable. However, my seafood pasta was disappointing. The pasta was really undercooked and the 'sauce' was just watery. I have enjoyed Milans in the past - so maybe this was just a one...off disappointment. I hope so as we will return.More

They had a variety of gluten free and vegetarian options. Not sure if dairy free was on the menu but I’d be surprised if it wasn’t.
