Milano Pizza was one of the follow-on operations to the old Piggly Wiggly in the building at 3724 Covenant (which is basically at the corner of Covenant & Bethel Church). After The Pig moved out, the building was subdivided with a Dollar General taking the biggest slot on the left of the building.

The right side of the building, like Gaul, is divided into three parts. Tobacco World tried and failed to open in the middle suite, and Milano opened in the front one. (The rear suite has never shown any signs of life).

Since I like pizza, and it's fairly close, I had put Milano on my mental list to visit, but somehow it never seemed to come together. I do however, drive past the building almost daily, and it seemed to me that the hours were becoming rather erratic lately. I was never quite sure if it was actually closed, or not, but the most recent time I stopped by, I took a look inside and saw that the fish tank was gone, so I'm pretty sure the place is closed though no sign or note has been posted.

UPDATE 3 September 2013 -- Well, it's official:

  2. I think the biggest issue is that Covenant Road isn't exactly a high traffic road. Covenant Road (according to SCDOT traffic stats) only sees app. 3.8K VPD and that isn't the most ideal traffic count to support something like this I don't think. Plus I've been in this neighborhood a few times and has felt a little dicey to me...

  3. Covenant between Beltline & Two Notch is no prize, but the Ravenwood section is perfectly OK.

  4. i went sometime in the last couple of months and it's not surprising to me that they're closed. The website they have is quite nice and make it seem like it is a more bustling restaurant, reservations and happy hour. We went in and were the only ones there. They still had Christmas decorations hanging up and you could just tell that no one ever went there. We got a pizza and it was actually decent. There were maybe 1 customer that came in for pickup while we were there. I think the location did not help. There is a lot of commercial space for rent in that area right now. I think when you see a lot of closed store fronts, it adds to that "dicey" feel. I run in the area quite a bit, and it is not really dicey at all.
