“Worst restaurant experience ever! !!!”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 via mobile

I went there with my boyfriend after work, we waited there for 5 minutes without anyone even asking what we want so we just seat ourselves. We sat there another 10 minutes before we have to ask the owner that we need a menu, she just pointed to the waiter. It took another 15 minutes for them to come by to take our order. We waited another 20 minutes to get our food. When we finished our food we sat there some more and finally got tired of worrying and went to pay. We order one pizza, a water and a coke and our total was $42. We asked if that is right and the owner said yes and toss the paper to us. They were so rude and to mention over price. We waited so long and they weren't even busy. DO NOT GO HERE! !!!!

“Great Pizza”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

We went to Cafe Milano with Restaurant.com coupon. There were 3 in our party and we ordered each a pizza. It was excellent. Pricey but worth it. Beer select is only bottles and could be a larger selection. Enjoyed

“Cafe Milano”
Reviewed 10 March 2014

We had a great evening at cafe Milano. We started with an olive appetizer which was delicious. The pizza was also delicious. The atmosphere was low key and the owner was very nice. Highly recommend.

“Food Decent, but worker/manager smoking in back office was a 'drag'”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

We went here from out of state because we had a groupon. Once at the restaurant, we were told we couldn't order off the 'board' (the daily specials), only the menu, and only entrees and pizza, no paninis as they take too long. That was a bummer.

The food took a while, but was decent. The biggest disappointment was that one of the employees was smoking in the office which is right off the dining room. This was a major distraction to an enjoyable meal as the smell of the smoke permeated the dining room.

“Good pizza”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

My husband and i found this place because we had a Groupon. We would not have gone there otherwise because it was not near where We were staying in Clearwater Beach. We were glad we found it during our vacation and went there twice in one week.
The place is owned by a nice Italian couple. Very friendly.
The have a great selection a specialty pizzas made with homemade crust.
If you order a meal..its strange that an Italian dish would not include bread. Plus you have to pay extra for salad, So you get pasta. Thats it...no bread, no salad..and its not cheap. I paid $21 for lasagna.
I would stick to the pizza. Its worth it. And very good
