Super

That's a really good restaurant, Price is fair and the pasta was excellent. The waiters very proffetionals, The wine was served in a well filled glass. The only problem: if you come on a monday you won't be able to eat fresh fish as the place was closed on sundays, Anyway, the place is recomended.

Nice, cosy place near Duomo. Friendly staff, good food, many famous customers :) we had come several minutes before opening but we're heartedly met and seated. Really good choice!

We ordered the gnocchi and it tasted more like mashed potato - tasteless and mushy texture. I got the "daily special" lasagna (that was recommended by the waiter)- barely any meat, tasteless, mushy pasta sheets. Chips i ordered were 6€ and not very good either. We thought we'd end the meal with "Nonna's lemon cake", but it was dry, hard... More

A go-to place if you are in central Milan and wish to avoid the tourists. Quality of food is good. Buffet is well stocked. Service is variable from polite and helpful to haughty and stand-offish. Good for coupled or business lunch. Melanzane alla Parmigiana worth trying.

You can find wide range of foods. From pasta, to grilled beef or fish plate. You can drink good quality house vine. Service is quite good and fast. You have to see the waiters there, they wear white jackets and looks very funny. You can go there also for business dinner.

This casual place has been here a long time and we can see why. Tuscan style with great antipasti bar and wide selection of standards. Osso buco with risotto Milanese deliciouso as was the authentic tiramisu. Would definitely return.

Da Bruno beat out all the restaurants we've been to in Italy. We've been all over Italy for 2 weeks now. This place isn't too far from the Duomo but doesn't feel like a tourist trap at all. We went in multiple times during our stay and each time there were more locals having business lunches and dates than there... More

My family and I have been visiting Da Bruno for 15 years. Every time we visit Milan we always return because of the delicious food, excellent service and warm welcome from the owner Graziella. Many locals dine here and it is not hard to see why. The pasta dishes and meat grilled in the wood fired oven are excellent. If... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
