Not your typical high-top restaurant and bar

Not your typical high-top restaurant and bar, Milano’s in West Chester, OH is open and spacious with plenty of seating for parties, work lunches, and Friday night get-togethers.  Wallpapered around the room are enormous high-definition flat screens so you’ll be able to easily enjoy your favorite teams and indulge your culinary desires without breaking your neck to catch the score.

It’s 3 pm Friday afternoon and the dining room is full of life, atmosphere and good smells.  The beer stays cold.  The friends stay close.  The wait-staff is professional and well-versed in Milano’s new menu.

The dining room is accommodated with cascading brick arches that separate it from the bar.  Beyond those brick arches lies a monolith that beckons the most thirsty of wanderers: a selection of more than 30 ice-cold brews, all on tap.

Repping its Italian-American roots, the new menu offers up 6 signature pies and a ton of options to customize your own pizza.  But of all these, foodie, I’d like to introduce you to the sublime; the superb; the “Green Goddess”.  Underneath she’s a blend of succulent pre-sautéed onions, peppers and mushrooms; sweet sun-dried tomatoes, fresh artichokes, and basil pesto.  She’s topped with fresh mozzarella, provolone, and feta cheeses, with your choice of parmesan (you won’t need it).  She tastes just like a forbidden pleasure but is actually quite healthy, fresh and delicious.

Beer and foodies

At Milano’s, sincere beer-lovers and foodies alike will surely find a haven.  There are tasty vegetarian options as well on the new menu and your choice of flatbread on submarines.  That being said, there is no doubt that carnivores and herbivores will both enjoy the plethora of fresh ingredients that are baked into each pizza, sub, and calzone, here at Milano’s in West Chester, OH.
