Milan is located next to the Holiday Inn in Charlottesville, which makes it an easy alternative dining experience for hotel guests. The food is excellent, and the decor ranks well above other Indian restaurants I have visited. The servers are very friendly and welcoming. Recommended.

We were here twice - excellent service and food. Knowledgeable staff recommend what to order. Menu has street food as well as main courses. Mango lassi could be better.

I can't remember how much but I think the Sunday brunch is a little expensive than weekdays (they serve more varieties on weekends it seems).
Hi! In September, the Husband and I will be starting the Granada Tour in Fuengirola, but we're staying near at Blue Bay Banus, Marbella. Any directions we will need to give the cab, so we can be at the right place to catch our Julia Tour bus?
