    The pappardelle was beautifully made and the service was friendly and efficient. This is a great end-of-a-long-week spot to remember the last time you were in Italy and why you loved it so much.

    We loved our server Jorge. He made the dinner experience so much better. If you’re lucky enough to be seated in his section, you will be treated very well and he will make you laugh. The food was delicious and even though it’s situated in Eataly it’s much quieter and you feel like you’re in an actual stand-alone restaurant. Would definitely go back.

    The saffron risotto which they are known for was very under seasoned and flavorless. Our pasta was also undercooked. They ran out of crispy polenta and also decided to shut down the espresso machine before we and other tables were done with our meals. Overall definitely very disappointing

    We had a 7:15 reservation on a Saturday night and were seated on time. Our meals arrived quickly and I paid the bill about an hour later. My wife and I were finishing our drinks and at 8:20 the Maître d' (I presume) stopped by our table and asked us to leave because "people were waiting." My wife and I along with our son were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Needless to say, this was a disappointing and unpleasant end to a nice day. The food portions were small and tasty, but nothing special. Our server and bus boy were friendly and accommodating. Try SERRA by Birreria upstairs -- the food is better and you'll be treated decently.

    We felt our food was good not great. The mozzarella and tomato appetizer wasn’t seasoned at all and was very plain. My angolotti was a underwhelming. It was a small serving first of all, but it came with no garnishment and was very average. My daughter’s risotto was better and a decent portion but still nothing special. The highlight of our evening was our server who was engaging and sweet. Loved the Negroni bar cart also. I ate at Manzo bsck on its early days and this was a far cry from that meal. We had a nice night but the food was just ok. For the price and the expectation we had, we were disappointed.

    Love this tucked away, mid-century modern bar and resto inside of Eataly. Everything was impeccable, especially the service, and the cocktails were so good - we had an Old Fashioned and a Sidecar. Also fresh tortellini and a salad that was to die for. Our next visit won't be soon enough! Did I mention I got engaged there too..no? Oh, yeah well that happened, and our waiter was so great - he even brought us champagne to celebrate!

    Superb peppers and anchovies, sweet pea pesto pasta and costeletta di vitello, with server Johnny A mixing a custom negroni right at the table. Fine wine by the glass. What's not to like? This was our 5th or so dinner at Bar Milano since the mgmt changed thr name , decor and menu. Consistently superb.

    Service was top notch, food was excellent. My wife and I enjoyed the negroni aperitivo made in front of our table on a cart by the server. The place is run smoothly, staff worked in synchrony when it was time to set up and have the table organized for the next course. What a surprise inside the busy grocery market! PS Please add some more classic appetizers!

    Our waiter was quite rude. I honestly didn’t even want to tip him. I would have much preferred our busboy took care of us as he was kind, attentive, and thoughtful. I can’t remember the last time I had such horrible service. I mean, we waited about 15 minutes for him to even get to the table and his first words were “So, do you know what you want?” With pen and pad in front of his nose. Mind you, we hadn’t even ordered a drink or anything yet. Awful.

    Believably, authentically Italian and the place is quite well-managed. Johnny the server (and kitchen crew) elevated the experience. Decor needs a bit of help. The saffron risotto is toothsome. Excellent wine and vermouth list. Not bad for lunching in a supermarket on a madcap spring Saturday.

    Bar Milano is an oasis in busy and noisy Eataly. We had the branzino and veal pappadelle, both were delicious. The wine was pricy but very good. Server was knowledgeable and efficient. The food and wines are reflective of northern Italy,ie less red sauce. Would go again.

    Cool little gem inside the Eataly market. Don't be fooled by the name - this is a full restaurant with a quite and cozy dining room, not just the bar! Everything was so different than the other Eataly restaurants, form the menu to the level of service and attention to details! The show kitchen in front of us was awesome to see while cooking. Great selection of wines from Italy, the sommelier suggested us a Barolo and we ended the meal with the amaro cart at the table (they have tens of different amaros and grappe and they bring it in front of you at the table...hard to not pick up one to try).

    This was not our first dinner at Bar Milano, the previous ones were actually quite good but this time, unfortunately, we had an extremely disappointing experience mostly because of the very poor service. When we sat down at the table there was a dirty plastic cup sitting on our table and we asked the waiter to please remove it. Guess what was the answer “ it is not mine either “ and he walked away. From that moment on it went only downhill fast. The menus disappeared before we could even order our entrees. We could not get a wine chiller for a bottle of Franciacorta because he could not find one “ big enough “ to hold the bottle ( he thought it was actually very funny ). Maybe the waiter was having a bad day but when your check is $ 580 you expect a better service than what we got. As I wrote before, not the first time but definitely the last one.
