Good and simple alternative

When you are looking for something different but really Italian too, far from pasta and pizza, this is a good alternative. For around 6 Euros, you have your piadina and a bottle of water, for instance. This makes it really attractive for an easy way of having lunch or dinner around Milan. I would... read more

Being a local, I was very pleasantly surprised by the great service, the great prices (4-6 euros for a plate), and the great atmosphere. Very cozy yet spacious area and efficient serving (buzzers). Will come back again and again.

An amazing happy hour with friends. Good wine, excellent food, magic atmosphere. The only flaw was the too high music, you have to up your voice to talk

I eat here every week it seems and every time the piadina is perfect. This place is full of locals and you can have a great meal for under 10 euros.

Reward yourself with an exclusive example of Italian couisine: the Piadina. Here you can taste the best Piadina in Italy. A delicious experience that leaves you amazed and satisfied. This soft round piece of bread stuffed with a variety of fresh ingredients from more than thirty recipes is definitely better than a pizza. At C'era una volta una piada, the... More

Welcoming place for a quick lunch or snack if you are around the area of the Museo della Scienza or the church Santa Marie Delle Graze. The staff is really friendly. The piadinas are very tasting. They're huge, though - if you're not a big eater, you might consider sharing it.

I had an excellent quick lunch at this restaurant, where you can only have an Italian "piadina". The menu is quite broad and includes some daily specialties. The quality of ingredients is very high, which is essential for this kind of dish. Service was impeccable and the staff was very friendly. I particularly liked the payment system, since you first...

My husband and I came here for lunch after arriving in Milan, and we were so glad we did! Neither of us had ever had piadinas before, and these were delicious! Soft and warm, with fantastic fillings (especially the roast beef) and generous portions, all for a very good price. The only difficult part was picking out fillings -- there... More

Cute place, vivid atmosphere and great piadine. You definitely cannot leave hungry from this place. The best value for money. Great variety of ingredients to fill your piadina.
