“Not cheap but cheerful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

As the equivalent of Pizza Express in the UK, I wasn't that keen to go but it was getting late and we were hungry so it seemed like a good option. And I'm glad we did go. Alcoholic drinks are not cheap but as several people have said, the pizza is pretty good, especially if you like the thin, crispy variety. We also shared a salad and an antipasto platter and everything was tasty. The service was friendly enough but the acoustics meant that it doesn't need to be half full for it to feel very loud. I'd go again if we were a big group or with kids but it's not the place to go for a romantic, quiet dinner for two.

“Great pizza!”

I was craving pizza. I wasn't expecting such a fantastic meal and great service. I'm so happy my Irish friend recommended Milano's.

“A great meal as always and great menu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Milano's is the Irish version of Pizza Express so the menus are the same. Its not the place to go if you want a peaceful meal as on both occasions it has been noisy, but well worth a visit. Staff very helpful, food lovely as always and cooked quickly. I also liked the fact that we could use a discount voucher which the waitress suggested using by logging onto their website.

“2 hours in 2 courses!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

Went here with the family for Father's Day, only because the kids wanted to. Waited for table but that was okay as we hadn't booked, but then got the worst table in the restaurant, under a broken speaker that gave out a terribly bad sound. Then waited another 30 mins until I got up to ask for someone to take our order. By the time we had finished our mains, which were very tasty or maybe that was just the hunger, it had taken 2 hours. Far too long when trying to entertain 4 children. We do enjoy going there on occasion but would be very reluctant to return, especially when nobody working there apologised, just happy to take the money and get someone else in.

“Lovely Dinner :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Lovely food. Alcohol was a bit expensive and not much of a selection. Dessert was simply fab! Would definitely go back.
