    We picked this place for the view of the lagoon unfortunately you have to be a promoter of cancer inducing cigarettes or cigars to enjoy the best seating ! So we had no choice but to settle for a table next to kitchen with its High noise and traffic. We felt we were punished for not being smokers!

    Service was excellent, some of the best service I've gotten in Abu Dhabi. Our entree's were amazing - grilled calamari was tender and cooked perfectly. I expected the pasta (mains) to be the highlight, but there was no truffle available for the pappardelle, so I was recommended the Fileja, which was ok, but wasn't the texture I expected for 'Home-Made pasta' as stated on the menu.

    Excellent Italian dishes served in a relaxing yet elegant atmosphere. Good variety but most importantly top quality ingredients throughout the menu. I highly recommend the Milano salad, the eggplant parmigiana, the penne o spaghetti alla Salernitana, the gnocchi's, the hammour fish cooked in salt, the focaccia with olive oil & rosemary.... Good choice of wines and aperitifs (Aperol spritz)

    The ambiance is good, with correct lighting and nice "mise en place". As italians we can say that the food is good and the wine offer too. The service was outstanding, everyone kind and they made our anniversary very special. We recommend Cafe Milano to everyone and, in particular, to italian people.

    Excellent food as always, however strange service. Usually service levels are exceptional, consistent with what you would expect at the 4 seasons, however on this occasion the staff seemed almost irritated by our presence. Odd experience and not ideal when you are bringing guests.

    Expensive food with average quality. Service ranged from ecellent to terrible depending on who came to serve.. Whatever you do, don’t order the cheeseboard - bad cheese, no crackers/bread and the “homemade marmalade’s” turned out to be a small glass jar of bought breakfast orange marmalade!

    I got the wrong dish (I ordered spaghetti and got veal). The spaghetti eventually came after my guest finished his meal, and the dish was extremely poor in terms of taste and presentation - the spaghetti was overwhelmed with a mushy sauce, and was too salty.

    A lovely venue with great food and very attentive service. Somewhat on the pricey side (even by Abu Dhabi standards) - but that is my only criticism. The music was blasting when we went in but the staff happily obliged when I requested it be turned down.

    I’d say that the staff were absolutely spectacular.. as is mostly the case in UAE. I won’t fault the restaurant for being fairly deserted at lunchtime at the beginning of a business week... however what I found very disappointing was that the menu did not really reflect reality. For example - a burrata tomatoes was basically (literally) a mousse of burrata that looked like a milky fluff with cherry tomatoes buried inside. I would not go back unfortunately.

    Cafe Milano is a rare find in Abu Dhabi. An authentic restaurant experience. Delicious food, savvy servers who understand the food they serve, exciting wines both by the glass and bottle, and a dining room which buzzes with activity. Wonderful, just wonderful. I will find occasions to keep coming back. Bravo to the chef and staff.

    I had been here for a business dinner a few months ago and had a really great meal. One of my colleagues had Tagliatelle Al Funghi Prcini E Tartufo serviti in una forma di granna padano, or simply house-made tagiatelle with porcini mushrooms and truffle served in a wheel of Granna Padano. It was made tableside, the warm pasta tossed in that enormous wheel of cheese. After everyone at our dinner saw that we all agreed we would have to come back to try it, we were so jealous. So I took my wife last weekend and really talked up the tagliatelle. When we ordered the item on the menu, which clearly states "served in a wheel of Granna Padano" we were told that dish was no longer served tableside in a wheel of Granna Padano. This was our fist disappointment because that was specifically what we came for. We both eat low carb, we were particularly excited for our "cheat day". This was deflating news. We ordered the dishes anyway, thinking "well, the flavor will be the same, regardless" and we ordered starters. My salad was terribly bland and my wife didn't love her starter either. The pasta arrived and it was fine, but I think with our expectations trounced it just wasn't what we had hoped. Service was a little slow and inattentive, too. I don't know what happened between my last business meal and this most recent dinner, but it seems a lot has changed.

    Friendly, helpful and excellent staff. Food is exceptionally fresh and full of flavour. Atmosphere, decor and the view are all outstanding. Highly recommended for lunch or Saturday brunch. Only frustration (and Cafe Milano is not alone on this) is now so many restaurants in Abu Dhabi connected to hotels have +++ which is an additional 25% on everything on the menu. However, Cafe Milano does offer a unique experience in Abu Dhabi.

    In love with Cafe Milano. The first thing that catches your attention is the elegance of the decoration and the spectacular terrace that the views make it one of the must of Abu Dhabi. Then the service comes, attentive and professional, and then you are surprised by the quality of the food. Our Roasted Seabass is to remember, and the excellent appetizer focaccia. We enjoyed the evening and stay for along time quite and enjoying the experience, and from now on we recommend Cafe Milano as one of the best restaurants in the entire Emirates.
