THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Milano's Cucina Italiana Restaurant Review

: Formerly part of a small chain but now independently owned, this casual eatery has lifted itself from the constraints of corporate ownership, offering some quite respectable food in a casual setting. The contemporary dining room, on the ground floor of an office tower, still has the feel of a calculated, formula-driven concept, right down to the magnums of house wine consumed at every table. But the thin-crusted pizzas are excellent, and pastas like farfalle with chicken, shiitake mushrooms and tomatoes in a rosemary-balsamic cream sauce and pumpkin-filled ravioli in brown butter-sage sauce are of a quality well beyond what you’d find at most big chains. Terrific house-made desserts such as tiramisu and chocolate chip-raisin bread pudding with crème anglaise are generously portioned.
