Our "kitchen" in Milan, Italy!

Every year we go to Milan in April, we stay at the Radisson Blu, and walk 5 minutes to the L'Immagine Ristorante Bistrot for lunch, for dinner, for drinks! It's our "kitchen" when we go to Milan! Everything there is perfect. It's fun, the ambiance is great; the food is wonderful and truly Italian... read more

We saved L'Immagine for our last meal in Milan. The Trip Advisor reviews were so spectacular that we very much looked forward to the meal. Maybe we set the bar to high but the net result was that we were disappointed. The service was great and the atmosphere was fine. The pear and blue cheese ravioli was wonderful but the... More

This was my second time going to the restaurant. Starting from the welcome drink, to the mountain of sweets, you feel like you get pampered to paradise. The first time I was here, I was absolutely impressed by the quality and quantity of the meals that I had to bring my housemates over from Switzerland just to have a taste... More

Having read the reviews for L'Immagine I decided I needed to visit this restaurant to see for myself, I wasn't disappointed. From the moment we arrived at the restaurant we were impressed with the ambience and it only got better from there, the service was excellent and the staff were friendly. The food is excellent with a large variety on... More

After reading reviews on Trip Advisor I decided to book a table here for my birthday with my friends. I got a quick and friendly response, it was worth booking because the restaurant was full. The service here was outstanding. The antipasti was the best I've ever had, and my main course of blue cheese and pear ravioli was to... More

Wonderful restaurant. After a fairly lengthy cab ride from our hotel I had my doubts that this resturant would be worth it but I can honestly say it was. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. There were a number of lovely extra touches including welcome drinks, sweets and the barman slashing our bill by EUR 10 for no... More

I couldn't leave Milan without eating here at least 2X. I'm looking forward to seeing you again tomorrow evening...and this time, I'm bringing my family! Can't make up my mind which on the menu is my favorite. Everything is great and there is still a lot more to try. This is my favorite Italian restaurant in the whole world.

I suggest booking before hand because the place is so popular! Beautiful restaurant with fantastic ambience.. Staff are very welcoming and the food is to die for.. Could not fault it! I'm a bolognese lover, It wasn't on the menu, so I requested it and they made it for me without any hesitation! Very very reasonably priced for the quality... More

This was our first dinner in Italy and we compared the rest of the trip to this one!!! Amazing! The staff were so friendly and tolerated our lack of Italian speak! We got a great recommendation for wine, and the chocolate soufflé was so incredible! The truffle gnocchi that was on special was so fantastic as well. Get off the... More

Visited Milan in 2014, researched many restaurants on TripAdvisor before venturing out and can truly say this was one of the best restaurants I have eaten at...ever. Service to match too, excellent value. Rare gem of a restaurant.
