This was across the street from my hotel and I went to it after missing lunch in the hotel. The food was fantastic! The staff were friendly and had a family vibe. The bread and coffee was fantastic! Really tasty and fresh ingredients. I had the steak Tar Tar and my friend had the Gnocchi. They were both very tasty.... More

Like most reviewers, we wandered across the street from the Hermitage Hotel. Enjoyed pasta especially the Spaghetti a la Vongole. Manager was nice, chatty... other diners appeared to be locals... No other dining choices visible from the hotel....

Quite a bad restaurant. A name like vecchio porco makes one salivate with BBQ dreams, but no. Over priced, below average service and the food is really quite average. the only saving grace is the terasse which is a pleasant place to sit. For the price its completely not worth it, only go if in the area and desperate.

After a busy day of sight seeing in Milan, myself and my girlfriend decided to go to this restaurant which is located directly in front of the hotel which we were saying in.I can honestly say the quality of the food did not match the price that we paid.My girlfriend was told that she would receive potatoes with her Roast...

It is a typical Italian 'ristorante'--not fancy, just good cuisine, friendly service and lots of fun. Although it is in the heart of Piccola China, there is nothing chinese. On top of that there is a large heated terrasse, where you can smoke. I had a tartar and it was fabulous.

Its worth the visit especially to see the decor. The whole place is done up with little pigs which is what the name stands for and is very interesting as a decor. Great wines and salami platters!

We were staying at the hotel opposite and on the first night of our short stay in Milan decided to give this restaurant a whirl, we were greeted well and seated and within a few minutes had ordered our food. The Chicken I ordered was very well cooked to say the least and I was unable to eat any of... More

I was staying at the hotel opposite and decided to give this place a whirl. The lardo and swordfish I tried were both excellent. The service was prompt and polite. The atmosphere was very laid back. Heartily recommended.

I was invited by a Milanese friend to this restaurant, which is located in the Chinese neighborhood of Milan opposite Hermitage hotel. The decoration is cute, funny and of well Taste. As the name implies, all the walls are decorated with picures, drawings, toys and items with pig depictions. We ate outside and thefood is typical Italian with excellent cheese,... More
