Great place to grab an affordable piadina and enjoy it on a stroll around (really, barely you'll have a chance to sit down). The piadina is simply delicious and hefty stuffed with the fillings of your choice. You can pick up among hundreds of ingredients and you won't be disappointed. A mention to the place: it recreates an ambiance of... More

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 come back!

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.

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
