Nice atmosphere, fairly busy since restaurant will be closing soon . I ordered cannelloni and it was thickly covered in cheese. So much so that I could barely taste the other ingredients. I would have preferred a lighter touch. Menu has been reduced to fewer...More

Sorry to hear that the Milano Inn is closing after so many years. Great ambience and great Italian menu. Perfect for a romantic night out and for large groups (we had about 100). Someone needs to buy this place!

I've been eating here for years. The lunch buffet is always great.....I love fried chicken......yes fried chicken at an Italian restaurant. Their house dishes are always hot and full of flavor. It's a shame they're closing their doors after so many decades of service.

Relying on Italian hospitality and good food, Milano Inn has stood watch as Indianapolis has evolved. It was founded during the Great Depression, flourished as manufacturers prospered during the 1940s and survived as subdivisions lured families to the suburbs starting in the 1950s. It has seen the rise and fall of Market Square Arena and the Hoosier Dome. Skyscrapers, world-class hotels, and a resurgence in urban living has revitalized downtown in recent years and, as always, Milano Inn has welcomed those from the neighborhood and beyond with warmth, and tried and true family recipes.As custodians of this proud tradition, the LaGrotte family, Chef John White, and everyone else at Milano Inn invites you to have a seat at our table.We have beautiful outdoor seating arrangements, free parking, a full bar and wonderful hospitality. We welcome celebrations for special occasions and have room rental options at no cost.
