Horrible - don't go there! We stopped by for a cup of tea. Since they served us a kettle and a selection of tea bags I used two. Afterwards they charged us by the number of tea bags. So far I never ever payed 9€ for three bags of Lipton tea.

Like the last contributor, we cannot understand why this restaurant appears to have received poor reviews from Italian speakers. In fact, the second time we visited the locals were queuing for tables. Bellariva is by the canal and a great place for people watching. Whilst not an extensive menu there is sufficient choice and the food is first class. There... More

No... really, I don't speak Italian so I can't tell what the bad reviews are about. We had a very nice meal, outdoors in a very nice spot. My wife had a beautiful caprese salad with what she said was great mozzarella. I had argentine style beef and vegetables which was good. Could have used a bit more beef but... More

The restaurant is well placed and seemed clean. There were mosquitoes? Obviously! It's Milan and near the canals. No miracles here... have a nice repellent in hand and you'll be fine. The food wasn't bad. The pasta wasn't exactly "al dente" but it wasn't bad at all. But the real problem is the service! It wasn't empty neither full. We... More

The food is great here! The service is also good and the staff speaks English. It's a relaxing place where you can sit for hours. Great place to spend the evening! I would recommend it!

Really not a suggested place on the navigli even though the view is nice the place is full of mosquitos with no solutions. The menu try to be a mix of local and international cuisine resulting in a boring selection, then on the dishes there is a lack of passion with elaborate presentation that just masquerade the missing taste of...

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.
