If you like the fashion hype that lately goes with jap food, then maybe it's not the place. But if you like Japanese food, then it's the best one in Milan, possibly in Italy. The proof is that most of its clients are Japanese, that go there to enjoy a full menu of traditional Japanese cuisine. Not cheap, but unbeatable.... More

I stumbled upon Osaka while wandering around Milan, still upset with the terrible osso buco I had the night before in a supposedly authentic trattoria. Osaka is a gem located in the Hotel Ritter--it was a godsend after a long morning of walking through the city's historical area. The set lunches include miso soup or salad and a choice of... More

This is the real Japanese restaurant in Milano. High quality food, good service and a vast choice of Jap cuisine. Ramen is my favorite.

Osaka is where you need to be if you're tired of the same old "sushi restaurant" in Milan. I was blown away by how fresh and authentic everything I ordered was. I wouldn't recommend the tempura as the batter wasn't right for me, but their japanese egg roll is on point and their ramen is serious business. Would return in... More

What made us really mad was that they don't serve as they advertised. There was a happy hour set (Ramen etc) which said until 9pm. We had gotten a table at 8:40pm and ordered this menu. Since this set must be ordered before 8:30pm, which wasn't mentioned anywhere on the menu, we couldn't order it. At that point, we should... More

I've been in this restaurant for a business dinner and I've had the best Japanese dinner in my life. Everything was very well prepared and served, starting from the Maki (California, my favorite) to the shobu shobu. The waiters appear to be very careful to you and make their best to let you have a great experience. Being gluten intolerant,... More

I was directed to Osaka from the national newspaper, pointing it out as basically the only Japanese restaurant in Milan, and the review I read was largely confirmed. I was very surprised to see the ambience of the place, as it was largely filled with Japanese people. The menu is not the one of your typical sushi place, where you... More

My boyfriend and I just moved to Milan from Los Angeles. We love to go out for meals and are used to all types of ethnic cuisine. So when we moved to Milan it was a bummer to not have as many different options. Osaka was really a breath of fresh air. We were really impressed by the prompt seating... More

I went for lunch, the selection is limited to a number of set menu, quite good though. I got a sushi menu: 8 nigiri, 1 gunkan, a miso soup and a coffee... €30 on you bill. Okay, let's start commenting the food: great! Well done, meticulously. The fish is juicy and tender, good selection (two salmon, two tuna, one eel,... More

This time we came for lunch. Only set menus and a small selection of sushi and maki were available but there were about 8 menus to chose from and all the food was excellent as always.
