It is a charming, intimate restaurant with an Italian staff, top quality ingredients, homemade pastas, exceptional veal, polenta, risotto, and fresh seafood delivered daily, served in warm surroundings. Known as the "hidden jewel of Russian Hill" The San Francisco Chronicle calls Milano "one of the most consistent restaurants in the city".

Quaint neighborhood quality restaurant. Happy regular diners and attentive authentic Italian ownership contribute to ambiance. Food, salads and deserts excellent with good wine list. Dinner capped our evening and have already recommended it to friends.

Hands down the best homemade ravioli I've ever had! It was my birthday and the staff made me feel special by bringing us pistachio gelato with candles, too!

Wonderful gnocchi and very good Tiramisu. Didn’t enjoy the wine so much because it was chilled, Cabernet Sauvignon. Service was great.

A must try! Reservations were easy to get and service was great. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. We ordered an appetizer, two main courses, two glasses of wine, and a dessert. The total came out to be ~$150 (tip included). Great date night spot! I’d come again.

A gem in the Russian/Nob Hill neighborhood. Food is consistently delicious with knowledgeable staff and great recommendations. The tonnarelli alla capricciosa was superb! We all had veal - veal chop, veal Romana, veal marsala - all delicious. We are fortunate that this place has withstood the pandemic as great Italian food is just around the corner!

Fantastic pasta. A go-to spot in the neighbourhood for very well done, reasonably priced pasta.
Wine by the glass selection is enjoyable.

Decent place but our wine glasses had to be replaced twice as mosquitoes kept falling in them. Owing to covid, windows and doors are left open so we had uninvited party crashers.

Loved the overall feel of the restaurant. Started with the burrata/fennel/arugula salad, very fresh and delicious. One of us had the ravioli di giorno which was pumpkin. Very good. The other had the porcini mushroom with Italian sausage cream sauce—delicious. The pastas are homemade which adds to the dish. Shared the fish, sole cooked in a light lemon sauce, veggies on the side. Nice wine choices. Good service. Look forward to returning.
