The fish was excellent, but we made the mistake of allowing the waitress to choose our dishes. The food that arrived, though very nice, was not what she had told us would come, and appeared to be significantly overpriced on our bill. It was a shame and spoiled what was otherwise a very pleasant meal.

The street appearance of a modest restaurant completely unprepared me for the culinary treat that was to follow. My host, a work colleague and resident of Milan, has been coming here for years and obviously was well known by the Owner. We received wave after wave of expertly prepared fish and seafood appetizers - including several raw dishes - that... More

Best place in Milan where you can get fresh seafood. Recommended by a friend, we had the raw seafood - red prawns, langoustines, squid, oysters and seafood spaghetti pasta for mains. As a life long seafood lover, it doesn't get any better than this!

I visited with colleagues from Milan that have been dining out at Ristorante Charmant since it opened. It's a wonderful local seafood restaurant that serves dishes cooked simply but incredibly well. I'd highly recommend shellfish: mussels, shrimps, clams and lobster. Perfect. I'd love to return.

Given the great reviews below there is really no need for another one. Yet Charmant really has become my favourite seafood restaurant and every time I am in Milan I keep coming back. The place is not fancy and is owned by a nice Italian man Rocco (not sure if I spell it right) Most seafood are from the south... More

Wow! What a meal. I've eaten here twice now and I would detour through Milan to eat here again. Absolutely fabulous. Fresh fish and seafood in a comfortable setting; gracious hosts and waitstaff. Excellent wine, very fair prices and a terrific grappa to end with. What could be better?

We were very fortunate to find near our apartment a great restaurant that serves the fish my father in law was craving. We came early without reservation and they were so kind to fit us in as well as translate for us, as we spoke very little Italian. The food was great, we had the pasta with shrimp and artichokes...

I have eaten here twice and both times had an incredible fish feast but beware of the specials as they are quite expensive and can give you a fright when the bill arrives. A recommended seafood restaurant in milan. Booking is essential as it is small and popular.

Charmant is a very small restaurant in Citta Studi specialized in seafood. I have been there several times with friend and customers and always had a very good experience. I always take warm and cold hors d oeuvres which are a delicious introduction to the meal.Pastas with different sauces based on seafood are always perfectly cooked. The fish entreè is... More
