We just had our last meal in Milan and chose BellaRiva for its feel. The owner? Manager? Suggested a beautiful Rose that went perfectly with the Veal. My husbands Ravioli Eggplant was delicate and service was terrific. Great position, terrific wine list. Well worth it.

Along the Naviglio Grande, on an pleasant autumn evening, this Café seemed quite welcoming and unassuming, among a dozen of others lining up the canal. We shouldn’t have entered...Evertyhing was mediocre, i.e. neither bad, nor good. Servers looked awfully bored and I do not even remember the details of the meals.... But, to be honest, they had one of the... More

we chose this restaurant in order to try the famous osso bucco with risotto.. and it was very good, really a special dish... but is worth to mention that wine also was excellent! nice, small restaurant with friendly staff and great music

Had the osso bucco, which was the most expensive plate on the menu, and it was horrible. I would literally give the plate a 0 out of 10. Wine was bad too. Only thing that was good was the water, and the service. Very friendly. Would not recommend, obviously.

Located on the Naviglio channel a little outside the city center by bus, we found the restaurant by taking a city tour on the "get on, get off bus" taken from the shopping district. We found the food very tasty, nice selection of menu items, wine by the glass was only 3 euros, had salad, main course and wine for... More

22 Euro for a plate osobouko (something like osobouko) And 12 Euro For a small starter I think it's expensive for too low quality.

Stumbled upon this restaurant whilst wandering the Naviglio neighborhood (great place to visit for bars and restaurants). Small menu and a couple of items were not available because of supply of fresh ingredients. Had 3 courses all of which were nothing less than delicious and great value. Ingredients were fresh and tasty. Service was good - maybe a little slow... More

My first night in Italy and Milan for dinner was the need. 30 degrees, The Naviglio and 10 hungry diners made this place home for dinner. Something Italian, simple, cheap and fun and it was all that in spades. We wanted liters of wine, check table Cloths, traditional food and service and we got it all. It was the perfect... More

A typical Naviglio restaurant with half deaf waiters, who are busy mending other things, and guests who hopes to enjoy Italian food but are disappointed. Food is prepared and delivered without love. question is what the owners focus are; on the guests or on other things? We were sitting outside and when we had some sudden thunder and lightning, with... More
