Like other reviewers we were recommended to Ai Giardini by a local hotel. It's a perfectly fine restaurant. Its not cheap but for central Milan it's not too expensive. The service was prompt and pleasant. There is a wide menu, (we thoroughly enjoyed the antipasto, the meat courses were good but sadly the truffle ice cream was not to my... More

Reasonable priced dishes for launch, excellent service and the pizzas are super! Ask the waiters for the day dishes they are super polite and will recommend honestly, I love their "Paprika & Cannella" pizza as well Pasta with seafood.

Even in Milan, you can find restaurants with good service. Giardini Paprika does not belong to that little circle. Very Slow service, unfriendly from the beginning to the end. They even substituted orders, they went out of ingredients without asking or at least communicating they served different beverages. Facit I wouldn't go there again.

We went there because of the reviews but is nothing special . They have dishes with truffles but I consider that if I want to eat something special with truffles I go in Alba or Asti . They are short in staff so the waiting time is long . I had the impression that the usual clients were treated different... More

We return to this restaurant every time we are in Milano because of the wonderful, authentic yet modern menu selections, fantastic service and relaxing ambiance. One side is a casual pizzeria where we can easily bring our young child for a relaxed lunch or dinner out - we always meet other families just like us who are there for a... More

The title says it all. Don't choose it, at least not the restaurant part, just because it is close to your hotel....

We been there for lunch, and were so surprised what other tables became that we really had problems to choose. So we took Octopus&potatoe salad, tomatoes&mozarella, entrecote and steak. Entrecote was a little well done, so they changed it imitiately to a rare one. Really - seldome eat such good food. Service was excellent, restaurant ambience matches the food quality.

Stayed in a hotel nearby and was recommended the restaurant. Best meal we had in Italy by a long shot. Lots of traditional dishes and a nice ambiance. Very reasonably priced.
