Went here after a lovely day in town with family. The waitress who greeted us had no people skills whatsoever, she was rude, grumpy & not helpful. When taking our order she rushed us. Never once smiled whilst we were there. I got the spicy pizza which stated on menu it was HOT!!! It was tasteless & had one jalapeño.... More

Friendly restaurant serving a wide variety of delicious dishes. Centrally located & easy to find. Pizzas are a good size & can highly recommend the chicken goujons too. Great for anything from a snack to lunch & dinner. You can bring your own 'booze' & they have a selection of wines for sale too.

A little celebration lunch with my wife as a thank you. So there was a strong desire for everything to be just right! We arrived shortly after opening and were promptly shown to a table. Menus were provided giving a wide selection, with options for various culinary needs. Drinks order was taken and filled without delay. The décor and ambience... More

Went here yesterday with my partner & two friends. Our food was absolutely delicious! Could not fault it. Staff are also very friendly and welcoming. The fact you can bring your own drink just makes it even better! Prices are very reasonable and portion sizes are great! Can't wait to go back

Love decor and location of restaurant, but I feel food went down the heel.. This time I had.. breaded mushrooms-disgusting, oily and bad presentation. Kebab was nice. Desserts lovely even though they are not homemade :/ At least this time service was good :)

Called in at lunchtime during our day trip to Ballymena. It is small downstairs and dark but I believe there is an upstairs as well. We were shown to our table by the waitress who supplied us with the menus. We ordered 2 different salads thinking they would be small for what they were charging. How wrong could have we... More

Have been to Milanos 3 times now over the past 2 years and I have to say each time it has been nothing but lovely. They had 2 courses for £10 (I think on a Monday and Tuesday) and have a great selection to choose from. We went for the chicken strips to start, a burger and Sals Kiev (Chicken,... More
