I have eaten at Bar Milano a number of times since it first opened a few weeks ago. Everytime I go, the food gets better and better. The service is great as well. The restaurant is very different from what you would expect if you like to go to a lot of the Denton restaurants, like Lupa and Inoteca. The cuisine is Northern Italian and very inventive. They split the menu up into three couses, which I like. For the apps, they have a lot of great items to chose from, like grilled octopus and this potato/ egg dish which is delicious. The middle course pastas are all great, and not as heavy as you would expect. They also make a wonderful risotto - the lobster one is my favorite! For entrees, there is a lot more to chose from then on the other Denton menus. The pork chop is definitely the best I have ever had, and the portion is huge. I have also had the scallops and the squab, which were all great. My husband loves the rabbit and says it is the best item on the menu. Desert is also good. They have something that is a mix of almond sorbet, orange sherbert, and pistacio ice cream, all servied together in a square. It is amazing! I get it every time. Besides the usual great Italian wines that you would expect on the menu, they also have an extensive cocktail menu that the ""mixologist"" has created. My favorite is the 323 - which is made with gin, strawberry puree, basil, sour mix, and balsamic vinegar. I know it sounds odd, but it is truly delicious. The service is great at the restaurant, whether you are eating in the main dining room, or having dinner in the bar area. Overall, I have been very impressed and will continue to go back. Bar Milano is a good go-to restaurant for a date, with friends, or even with your family. They have a few tables in the main dining room that can accomodate 6 people nicely, so you do not feel cramped. I would highly rec'd that you check it out!
Pros: Great food/drinks, good service, fun scene
Cons: It can get a little bit loud in the restaurant, especially since it is always packed.
