We went to this restaurant for lunch. We had a nice table next to the window overlooking the marina. It was very few people there at lunch. Two of us had the meatball sandwich and one had a salad. The service was very good but...More

Went for early dinner. Sat at bar, hoping to sit near the water after drinks. Lots of waiting for service and drinks. Had a few apps. After having to wait since there was no bartender at 4pm, during the Happy Hour, decided not to stay...More

Dined there with large group end of June. Location is great, next to pier and boardwalk. Service was poor at handling a big group, confused orders, didn't have enough seating, forgot to serve dessert until everyone about to leave. Food is fair, reasonably priced. Guests...More

We went here for dinner a little bit ago. My lasting impression is that it's not that lasting... The menu didn't have all the favorites and the staff was either busy or just slow, because it took forever to get our order, our drinks, etc....More

The food was below average. I had pizza. I took some home and usually it's better the second day. I threw it out. I think it was the crust that made it terrible even on the first day. Service was unbelievably slow. This place used...More

Milano's feels like a tired restaurant skating by on it's harborside view. The interior is dark, dated, and unappealing. Greetings and hospitality are missing--our host seemed bothered by a request to sit in the outer (quieter) area. The menu is very predictable and the food...More
