"Still Great After All These Years," A Milano Restaurant Review
"I recently moved back to the Albany area after a few years living downstate and I was thrilled to find Milano restaurant in Latham still going strong. This restaurant had been one of my favorites. When my family and I dined there, we were always careful to be sure that someone ordered a pizza, someone a pasta and at least one risotto, so that we could each share and try a little of everything. It was always excellent.I'm happy to say that we went again last week and the food was better than ever. I had a salmon perfectly prepared and my husband had a pizza that was heavenly. We also love the ambience; the open kitchen which is fun to watch and the fast and efficient service. It's nice to be back home!" -NYTaylor
