Very expensive and not worth the money. Very small portions. We were not satisfied at all. Its main dishes the size of starters and expensive prices. We paid 100 euros for a couple and we were hungry.

Understaffed and inconsistent in service despite great food. We did not get bread sticks and in a haste, the waiter did not bother to use the tongs to pick the bread rolls into the bread basket but simply used his bare hands. The seafood was really fresh and it was evident that the Asian guy shucking the oysters was really... More

We started with their delicious bread basket. My husband ordered a bottle of red wine - Sicilian, Donna Fuga Tancredi. Unfortunately the wine was disappointing. I enjoyed a tuna and salmon tartare appetizer (the fish was served on potato chips!) and my husband had the eggplant parm. My appetizer was very nice, my husband's good. Next I had the Zuppe...

This restaurant was inconsistent with the dishes which made it hard to rate. My meal was very good: ravioli with meat for first course and veal with white wine for second. My boyfriend's dishes were mediocre at best: gnocchi (overwhelmed by the tomatoes in the dish) and the veal cutlet (mostly breading). Service was good. No complaints there. Overall, if... More

This restaurant is located in a very lovely area called Brera. It's a beautiful restaurant on a side street, do look for it. The service is very gracious , the food is wonderful. In season ingredients and very otentic and interesting dishes. It's very close to milan center , worth a trip to Brera!
