Tasty Italian dishes and comfortable atmosphere make Milano’s a


Distinctive Italian cuisine is the focus at Milano’s Cucina

Italiana in downtown Glendale, where traditional Italian dining meets

a sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere. Milano’s, long popular with


downtown Glendale’s busy luncheon diners, offers a lively but

conversational dinner ambience, as well. The Brand Boulevard eatery

is a satisfying blend of the highest Italian culinary standards,

friendly and efficient service, elegant surroundings, and a modestly


priced menu.

Dishes include Pollo Spezzato al Rosmarino, a wood-oven-roasted

half-chicken with roasted potatoes, served in a garlic and rosemary

white wine sauce. The Tomato Basil Spaghettini is served in a hot,

steaming heap of pasta, topped with the mouth-watering sauce. From

tortelloni to the chocolate lover’s Tortina al Cioccolato, Milano’s

offers a complete course-by-course selection. The menu offers

everything from fresh mozzarella and Manila clams to mushroom-filled


pasta and New Zealand mussels. And, though it’s unlikely, if the

taste buds demand something else, Milano’s staff are prepared to

serve an off-the-menu dish, provided the ingredients are available in

the kitchen. Milano’s also serves various pasta dishes, soup, salad,

ravioli, pizza, and much more. The dessert menu at Milano’s offers

more than a few stock items. Milano’s offers tarts, puddings, cakes,

gelato, sorbetti, biscotti, and lady fingers laced with marsala and

espresso. The wine selection is also very good. Be prepared for


generous portions.

Whether being seated at a table outside or having the tasty

spaghettini boxed to go, Milano’s chief goal is to please each

patron. In spite of the busy and popular lunch period, Milano’s is

perfectly suitable for a quick and quiet lunch. Or consider a

romantic dinner or an after hours office gathering at the bar.

Milano’s Cucina Italiana is located at 525 North Brand Boulevard

in downtown Glendale. Major credit cards are accepted, and Milano’s

specializes in large group events such as weddings, birthdays,

anniversaries, and other special occasions and celebrations. For
