Cafe Milano in Clearwater

The other day the family tried Cafe Milano in Clearwater and there's not much about the place on here, so I figured I'd share my experience.

The service was good, nothing exceptional, but no complaints either.

I ordered "Pizza buffala" which was tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella and basil.($10.95)
IMO the crust on all the pizza's was some of the best pizza crust I've ever had in my life. The tomato sauce was very good, not sweet, but almost had a fruitiness, and the cheese was fantastic.

SO ordered "pizza alla ricotta" which was Tomato Sauce, Mozzarella, Ricotta Cheese and Fresh Basil and Oregano. ($8.95)
The wrong pizza was brought out first, so she figured she'd just eat what they gave her.(I don't know why she doesn't speak up, but oh well) The pizza she got had Tallegio cheese, which she didn't care for, but that was personal opinion. So i eventually convinced her to speak up and get the right pizza, which they did with no complaints. And she very much enjoyed the pizza alla ricotta.

The kids split a calzone which was tomato sauce, mozzarella, prosciutto. ($10.95)
The calzone was also very good.

Overall the dinner was very good, and I'll definitely be going back. The ingredients are all VERY high quality, and it definitely shows when eating.

This is my first "review" so if I forgot anything, please let me know.

  1. I agree that the pizza here is really good. I haven't been in awhile, mainly because DH and I tend to go a few blocks down Fort Harrison to Cristino's--the pizza there is also very good PLUS their gelato is wonderful. But definitely, Cafe Milano makes a great pizza pie.

      I actually didn't care for Cristino's as much, and to be honest, I found the owner to be a bit obnoxious.
