Italian
Caffé Milano opened its doors in 2015 from a concept inspired by Luca Di Falco, a veteran Managing Partner of BiCE Restaurant, offering a modern take on the classic Naples, presenting italian gourmet in a casual setting. His vision was to delivery the modern but rustic italian cuisine, from the south to the north of Italy. We can delight you with our homemade bread and pastas, our signature skizza (our innovated skinny and light pizza), a wide variety of sandwiches for lunch and authentic italian fresh dishes to satisfy our worldwide clientele all day long. We offer delicious handcrafted drinks and signature desserts such as our giant Tiramisu` or our Homemade Gelato prepared a` la minute. If you are looking for an ideal spot, Caffé Milano should be your first stop of the day and your last stop at night!!!

Unacknowledged for @5-10 minutes upon entering. This would have been a great experience if not for the noise level. Service was great, food was excellent. But very hard to have a conversation with our companions.

We had a very nice dinner. Carmine was an excellent waiter……….our meals were delicious……..however I will say the pappardelle Al Ragu was delicious but the short rib meat was very scant …………flavor and pasta was delicious………should have more meat in this dish. The tables for two are very small ……..we love this restaurant and will return. Just wanted to share.

Large place with a good menu. Salmon, filet and especially the tortellini with truffles were very good. Server was fine but not very attentive. Atmosphere was fine but inside looks a little like a nice breakfast place. Not the candle and white tablecloth type of place but more casual and relaxed.

Pros--food and service

Cons--Lack of Covid precautions--no masks and way too crowded
Very noisy

Mostly my disappointment was the lack of common sense precautions during a Covid Spike.

Wonderful atmosphere outside on 5th Ave with outstanding service and amazing food. Appetizers to share for the table were fantastic and the entrees were some of the best we ever had. Homemade pasta, generous portions left some for lunch the next day. Great spot ! I highly recommend.

It's always a treat to dine at Caffe Milano. The staff are warm and inviting, professional and they know their food well. We sat outside and were comfortable with the propane heaters to add to the warmth of the restaurant. The food was delicious as always. we had 3 couples with us who had never been there before and loved everything. We will be back.

Food was delicious; our daughter had gnocchi, and said it was the best she ever had. My son had homemade rigatoni, my husband asked for veal parm and got a veal chop parm style, it was fabulous and I got the spaghetti carbonara. All the pasta was delicious and you could tell it was homemade. We definitely would recommend. Our waiter was on point as well.

We arrived for our 1pm reservation for 6 and we’re seated at a round table by a cheerful hostess. Our server was delightful answering questions about the choices. The restaurant was very cold and drafty forcing one lady to use napkins as a shawl. We were told the temperature and strong fan would be adjusted.
When we hadn’t received our meals at 1:45, we inquired. Finally, about 2pm we were served. The manager blamed the problem on short staff due to illness. (Neither he nor the rest of the staff were masked)
Our bills were adjusted 20% but the experience was already spoiled.

Absolutely delicious! Excellent service and wonderful quality and quantity of food. They have gluten-free pasta and their wonderful risottos are also great if you have Celiac and they took the disease seriously. This is a popular place so don’t expect quiet when it’s full as it’s quite loud. Cocktails were terrific as well and we will definitely be returning!

First of all, let me say that we have had some very good meals at Cafe Milano in the past. This particular visit was an exception. Our party of two had a reservation, and were seated immediately upon arrival at one of the standard inside two-top tables that they have, which is on the small side (more about that later). The restaurant was busy as it is now the snowbird tourist season here in Naples. Matt, our server quickly got us started on our cocktails and a very good tuna tartare apppetizer that we shared. We both ordered caesar salads and the spaghetti carbonara. This dish is served in the traditional Roman style with egg, and not murdered in cream and peas like most US restaruants, and is in itself, usually a good reason to visit Cafe Milano on its own.

There was a modest delay between the app, and the next course, which turned ont to be both our salads and mains delivered at the same time. Given the surface area of our table, throwing in wine, glasses, water, and bread, there was no way all four plates would have fit on the table even if we thought this staging was acceptable. My wife asked the food runner to please return the carbonara to the kitchen and keep it warm. His response was "Really?" When they brought back the carbonara, it was obvious that the cooks had added cream to keep the dish moist while we ate our salads, and was pretty close to inedible. My wife got through a few more bites than me, but we both wound up giving up. In reality, they should have redone them from scratch.

I felt bad for Matt, as the kitchen team had really let him down. We tried to be understanding, as the restaurants here have gone through a lot with the Covid, but there is a point where you have to say something, especially if you are spending a couple of hundred bucks on dinner. It is going to be some time before we give Cafe Milano another try.

Our party of four just loved our experience here. Cocktails were yummy to start. The food was so good. We had Veal, Brancino, Bolognese, and short ribs. All meals so good we gobbled up every bite. Our server, Antonio, was very helpful and fun. We will definitely go back!

When I made my reservation I requested outside seating. When we arrived at the restaurant for our 7:30pm reservation we were told out side seating is first come first serve and they do not take reservations for outside seating. This was not designated on website, I was extremely upset when we had to wait another 40 minutes for our table.

I always frequent Cafe Milano when in Naples. However on this visit with an 8:15 reservation we were seated near two tables with extremely loud guests. The restaurant is very loud already, but this was unbearable, we couldn't hear the waiter, we couldn't talk to each other. The restaurant really needs to do something to muffle the noise. The service was good, when we could hear him, but he was overwhelmed and didn't visit our table much. Food on this visit was just ok - undercooked veal, which I couldn't send back because by the time the waiter visited our table the others were more than 1/2 done with their meals. Disappointed on this vist.
