Where recommended to this place by the concierge at the park Hyatt after asking for a good traditional restaurant for lunch. The dining room is tastefully decorated, and looks very Milanese . However the pricing and quality reveal this is a tourist trap. We were charged 25 euro for a glass of wine and a diet coke, by the owner... More

We were recommended from our Concierge and that was a brilliant choice! Cozy ambience in a small family owned Restaurant, porcini mushrooms to die for and fantastic pasta. The cherry on the cake wax the truffles freshly sliced on the salad, amazing taste

The service was friendly & accommodating. There was a fresh forage of porcini mushrooms that were fleshy & delicate. The Tartufo was the largest I have ever seen, and so much more flavoursome than what I can get in Aus. There was a great selection of wines and the montelpucciano d'Abruzzo was medium bodied with a fruity punch & slightly... More

I wish every restaurant in Italy could be like this-the staff was so nice, so fun, so happy, so interested; the food was amazing, well presented, incredibly good; the location and structure were beautiful. I can see why this gem has been successful in Milan for such a long time. Ask the older waiter to explain Solferino; make sure you... More

I am going pretty often to this restaurant and, I must say, have developed some habits : burata and culatello ham (together, you have to ask because these are 2 separate antipasti), mille feuilles or tiramisu as a desert. Some variety with the entree, i was never disappointed. This last time I enjoyed particularly tagliolini freschi with butter and fresh... More

This restaurant was recommended by the concierge and looks that is the preferred for them, most of the guests were from hotel's recommendation. The best was our waiter Harold, he took very good care of us. The food was very good specially the plates with truffles and porcini.

Old standard in Milan. The menu never changes bit they don't have to. Food is cooked perfectly and the wait staff, which is very senior, do a really good job assisting you and help choosing wines. Our waiter recommended a very inexpensive wine (by Milan standards) which was perfect. The veal is the best in Milan, nothing fancy here just... More

Our concierge recommended this most charming restaurant when we asked for something nearby a meeting we had with some colleagues. The staff was superb and attentive, the atmosphere was warm and inviting and the food was sublime. Our waiter offered some great suggestions that showcased the seasonal truffles, and we were not disappointed. Our only regret was not having room... More
