    The musical performance was amazing, other than that I wouldn’t go back. The food didn’t make us feel good, the waiter was snarky and the vibe was off. Thank goodness for a great band.

    Beautiful ambience and the food is amazing! The kitchen is right there and you can see the chef cooking! The staff is very attentive and kind and they have live music on Tuesdays! I had the fiori di zucchina and the filet mignon, totally recommend those! And the fruit tartelletta was the perfect closure. Will be back!

    Food is always amazing. My only complaint is it feels like I didn’t even have a waiter when I was sitting at the bar. Felt like I had to search out for help if I wanted to order.

    everything was just perfect. we were just sad that there weren't more diners as would hate to see this excellent spot go under. we were very satisfied with the meal so declined dessert, so the waiter poured a shot of Sicilian wine that just hit the spot. very lovely experience.

    Two of three of my dining experiences at Dal Milanese so far have included live music. Every entree and even dessert I’ve ordered has been delicious and my current favorite pasta is the Ravioli Ricotta and Spinach! The ambiance is romantic with a comfortable environment to sit and relax in, and an elegant choice to meet up and wine and dine with friends. Overall, there’s always something new to try and dining at Dal Milanese is a tasty and pleasant experience!

    The room is very nice, the music is great, the wine and dessert were very good. Unfortunately, the food is not. We had the stuffed zucchini flowers, endive salad, risotto a La Milanese, and gnocchi with arugula pesto. It appears no one tastes this food prior to being served. Under-seasoned, no acidity or salt, and the gnocchi were swimming in the sauce. Risotto tasted like burnt plastic. I’m sorry I cannot have a better review, we really wanted to like the place. Someone needs to pay attention in the kitchen.

    Great service. Beautiful restaurant. Lovely ambiance. 2nd visit since they opened last year. The bread is warm and delicious. Authentic olive oil made for a nice start. The wine was just ok. The Squash blossoms were a bit dry. The pasta was more like red sauce soup with undercooked noodles. A bit disappointing. The Food could be better. I will be back and try something else, but the basics I think could be improved upon.

    We tried this spot a few weeks after its opening and hoped they’d work the kinks out, but unfortunately our second visit many months later was no better than the first. First the pluses, which are the ambiance and prices which are relatively reasonable. But the service is spotty overall, and the food is just ok, at times it seems no one is tasting any of the food as it leaves the kitchen. It’s a bummer.

    Wonderful food, great selection, nice local spot for dinner. My only complaint is they seemed to be short a waiter or two. Long waits to place an order. Once ordered, the food came out in a timely manner. Perhaps someone called in sick? I hope so because I plan on going back often.

    I’m an Italian here for holidays, and I wanted to try this Italian restaurant famous in Italy. I was not sure that the quality matches the one in Italy, but I was wrong, this place is amazing. I had patè, tagliatelle bolognese and lamb shank all this plates were all perfect, congratulations!

    The sub quality of ingredients and tasteless osso buco, dry thick cold Milanese veal worst I had in the US soggy polenta with canned mushrooms ok Saffron risotto ,service needs to do more than just filling up the wine glasses to the rim. I have been to the one in Milan and Sardinia, LA has a lot to improve on. Sadly all hype not comparable to good Italian restaurants that LA offers Luca please look into this . P.s no body wants to eat Osso buco in Formantera on a beach in Ibiza … best to help your restaurant in LA than to open another one in Ibiza really disappointing. Please note that the restaurant in Porto Cuervo was an Osteria volemose bene same owner as Dal Milanese Luca you should go to Giorgio Baldi Madeo, or Even Spago to try their Osso Buco and Milanese. I don’t send back food an I always tip well. Does not mean that out of 6 dishes everything was unbelievably tasteless and poor quality. Now instead accusing me of lying which is slander you should look into my comments there are many bad reviews and you don’t have any sense of customer service obviously. Perhaps the cantina will be good !
    Dal MilaneseResponded on 19 January 2024
    Dear Anonymous, We are shocked about ur review. A review with a lot of lies. We asked at your server some explanations about your disappoint. Nika, the server told us that your table was happy for the entire dinner and that you finished all your dishes. You gave a very good tip and you left the restaurant saying that everything was wonderful! 1- our ossobuco and cotoletta are our specialties and best sale. All costumer are very happy. 2- our mushrooms are not canned. 3- we don’t have DAL MILANESE restaurant in Sardinia, you never been there because don't exist. 4- we will not open a DAL MILANESE in Formentera, we will open Mexican restaurant CANTINA MEXICANA. You are not informed.

    Worst dining experience I have had at a restaurant. I literally had to ask multiple staff members for bottled water. Food came out with extended delays in between dishes. When inquired as to why, one of the staff members said a dish we ordered takes 15 min to prep, this was after we ordered over 15 min ago and a few items had arrived already. I didn’t know who our actually server was since I would have to flag down anyone that happened to pass by, but the one that did take our order looked as if she was busy entertaining a bigger party. I was looking to impress my guests with a restaurant that looked promising in pictures but was left wondering why we were treated the way we were.

    As an Italian living in L.A. I love this spot. The food is great and it feels like home. It’s very hard to find good Italian food around here and I could say that even in Italy it is not obvious to find that quality. Also I have to say that the italian chef is great, all the waiters and the service in general, even in a busy night, are awesome and super kind. Love the interior design and the vibe. Thanks!

    Fennel salad not prepared well,pieces thick and stringy tasteless vinegrette,too much sauce on the Vongole pasta dish. Server left to put two of our dishes in to go into containers. He came back quickly BUT handed the wrong to go dishes to both of us. We only discovered it when we got home That was also disappointing to not even be able to eat our personal leftovers.
