Nice place to hang out with bars and restaurants. A different feel to the city centre which is only a 20 minute walk away. Good choice of restaurants and bars. Lots if young people hanging out.

If you are in Milano and want to spend an evening, this is the place, great bars, coffee places, restaurants and great people. Very alive and hip. For “aperitivo” in Milano its either “Cova” in Via Monte Napoleone or here.

we walked around these sorroundings on Saturday evening and it was full with youngs who sit before the bars with coctails. There is plenty of bars, restaurants that offier "happy hour" you pay 8 EUR and you get a drink and unlimitted little food-bites. The channel was almost empty, just a little, dirty water. However just walking there was nice... More

Nice area with many restaurants cafes, very crowded, we hardly found a free table at the terrace to eat - it was sunny and warm. Excelent food but poor service - the waiter forgot our drinks, it took him forever to bring our food and he wasn.t very polite. Altough, we had a nice meal and a great time. When... More

Whether it was winter or we went too early in the evening, Navigli turned out to be a big letdown for our group. We had heard it was an artists' enclave where creative people in Milan mingle.

Not much water in the canal, ( although there was a sofa and several rubbish bags) didn't smell that nice and loads of granite. This was a let down. Restaurants are nice but it wasn't a. Place to sit outside and people watch.
