We had a tasty pizza at Milano's with a really good chianti and great conversation with our waiter, Kevin! A serendipitous spur of the moment decision to stop for food and drink.

This restaurant was the first Milano to open in Ireland. Situated in one of Dublin's most prestigious streets, between two of the city's most renowned bars, this restaurant is known for it's vibrant upbeat atmosphere. Extremely spacious and well designed dining room, complemented by two elegant waiting areas. During the day the use of light adds to the perfectly chosen interior and at night the carefully designed lighting creates an intimate feel to this spacious restaurant.
