It took us some 15 minutes by subway and then a short walk by one of Milan's canals to get to this wonderful restaurant. Even though they were not yet open (they open at 12 on Sunday) and they had a fully reserved morning, they were really welcoming. They served us a great coffee while they opened and we got... More

I really liked this restaurant as the food is nice and different from what you can find elsewhere. I had a good appetizer made with goose filet, green salad and poppy/sesame seeds. I continued with spaghetti with clams and truffles. I know that the combination sounds strange but believe me, the dish is very good and innovative! I ended my... More

It's clear that the American-born, French-raised owner of Erba Brusca is a devotee of the slow food movement. Her terrace-side garden brims with fresh herbs and veggies that made their way to our plates during our recent visit. Her Sunday brunch menu is spare - just four entrees or so to choose from. I opted for the eggs benedict and... More

first of all, wonderful location.........a bit outside the beaten path in a charming, historic green area. the inside dining is cozy and rustic trendy and outside is open to the veggie garden. This particular evening, the transparent wind protection flaps were down, which was unnecessary as it was a very warm evening. but, italians are super super picky about fresh... More

A bit outside of the city center in Milan you find this little gem. We had their 6 course tasting menu with wine selection. The atmosphere is very genuin and friendly and it was very easy to feel comfortable and well taken care of. The food was tasting very good but nothing really stuck out. The wines selected where all... More

One of the very best restaurants at a reasonable price. High quality food. The staff is very friendly. For each plate the waiter to explain what it is composed. Great choice of wines. You have to book a table. I highly recommend for those who want a very good to eat.

Lovely gathering with friends, our table of 6 was reserved in the position we asked when booking. Risotto with salsiccia (nb. this is typical Italian sausage) with pomegranate seeds and a few marjorarm leaves was such a nice discovery for the palate. Starter was also very good but the portion could have been slightly more generous. Wine served by the... More

I was here twice to celebrate family events. very pleasant place in the typical Milanese periphery, the Naviglio Pavese. food is excellent of high quality and beautiful presentation. on Wednesday nights live music is very elegantly offered. wines are offered with a brod Carta dei Vini. I will try to come back ASAP.

We went for a sunday brunch on a sunny day and ate outside withe the garden view. Other families with kids were there to remark that in Milan we yearn for eating out in contact with nature and a vegetable garden is like paradise for us. Lovely, lovely location, bees and bumblebees underlines that erbs are real and tasty and... More

I loved brunch here except for one thing. When I called the day before to reserve for 3 at 12:30 I specifically said we wanted to eat in the outdoor garden. We arrived at 12:20 when most tables were empty and they tried to say we could not be seated outside as we had not reserved there. We had an... More
