This is a great restaurant with great local cuisine. Not pretentious, just offers a variety of local dishes done right. Really right. The risotto was superb and the salads crisp and tasty. Service is fantastic and the staff do everything they can to make you feel at home. The quirky touch the restaurant has of providing sweets in jars on... More

We had read the reviews on TA and decided we couldn't miss out on this place, especially with all the complimentary niceties. Whilst it was nice I wouldn't consider this place for a second time as it was all a bit so-so. Firstly the location was a bit of an effort to get to, we rode Tram 1 all the... More

We decided to have dinner at L'Immagine Ristorante, and we were greeted with a welcoming glass of nice prosecco. We had a starter based on delicatessen after which we had, probably the best fillet steak we ever tasted (medium-rare) accompanied by a nice bottle of wine. We couldn't help but compliment the chef Mirko for his amazing culinary skills! This... More

Great Italian food and an amazing dining experience! Would recommend to anyone staying in Milan! Do not let the area put you off, as it really was one of the best meals we have ever had. And so reasonable! The antipasti was gorgeous. The tiramisu was the best we'd ever tasted. Full marks from really fussy foodies, who are hard... More

Staying at an out of the way hotel limits choices, I know, however you should not waste your time with this restaurant, despite what other reviewers might sayg. The service was good; that is the only positive. The portions were massive and the quality was massively poor. The carpaccio was supermarket quality beef; the cheese with the carpaccio (Parmigiano, allegedly)... More

After hearing awesome reviews on here about this restaurant me and my partner went on a hunt for it as our hotel area was pretty bleak for food. When we found it, it was CLOSED!!!! We checked opening times and were a little confused. We went for a further walk down the street to find no other restaurants were open... More

This is a restaurant where you feel immediately at home, not in the least by the friendly and attentive service. Food is abundant and of excellent quality. Wines, too, are excellent and reasonable priced. Clientele is partly Italian, partly international. Unfortunately, we could visit the restaurant only once, since it was closing for holiday. We hope to be back.
