  1. Big Milano fan fell in love with Pizza Express while living in England.
    My usual is dough balls followed by an American with extra tuna washed down by the best ice cold Coca Cola anywhere.
    To finish a Chocolate fudge glory and a glass of milk.
    Without doubt the best pizza in town!
    My favourite Milano is Baggot Street-please please open a branch on the Northside soon (as near to Glasnevin as possible)

  2. I eat at Milano’s on a regular basis. The pizzas are delicious and really good value. Favourite pizza is the ‘Pollo ad Astra’, sweet and spicy, very tasty. They also have a beautiful Pinot Grigiot white wine.

  3. Milano is a cool place to dine
    For the tastiest pizzas and wine
    Pasta salad and cakes
    A great meal it makes
    The Leggera’s particularly fine!

  4. I love pollo salad. There is nothing as good, it has everything including the lovely baked bread lenghts.

  5. Havent had a chance to eat at Milano’s yet but soon will having seen the menu!

  6. I have eaten in Milano on two occasions. I had the “Pollo Pesto” and it was very tasty. my friend had “Padana Pizza” it also was delicious. We are hoping to visit Milano’s again this week.

  7. My favourite thing in Milanos? Easy, dough balls!!! They are comfort food, come with melted garlic butter and when my daughter went on a class trip to the restuarant she got to make some. We love them and order them every visit.

  8. nostrana and dough balls, yum yum……………

    Leggera rocks too:)

  9. Leggara pizzas are great- full of taste without the guilt factor

  10. Seems like I’m not the only one who appreciates the Leggera pizza!

  11. Oh my God, I LOVE Milanos, yum yum yum, the Il Padrino on the Romano base is fantastic, the thin and crispy base only adds to the deliciousness of the torn chicken breast and mediterranean vegetables, the best ever. Service is always great and their chocolate sundae dessert is a delicious treat. Definately recommend. Never had the dough balls but judging by all the previous comments I am missing out!!!!

  12. Goats cheese and caramelised onion pizza… yum!

  13. I like the Antipasto plate. It is quick and easy to eat on the way somewhere and makes a tasty treat for one or a nice starter for 2.

  14. four seasons pizza please with a glass of chilled white wine – heaven!

  15. Gotta love the pizza – all of them!

  16. Never been, would like to go!!!

  17. Going on Wednesday to celebrate Junior Cert, looking forward to it.

  18. I always really enjoy my trip To Dundrum and to Milanos. The high point for me is dessert, lemon tart being my favourite.

  20. Super duper Italian food at reasonable prices makes Milanos my favourite for a night out

  21. Great pizzas, nice glass of wine and tasty desserts, finished with a good quality expresso, heaven!!!
