Great sushi and wine. A little bit expensive. The restaurant is small and very noisy but we will come back.

The food was great. I got a lunch sushi and sashimi platter for 20 euros and some Hojicha tea. Both were amazing. I have been to numerous Japanese restaurants, I am a big fan of Japanese culinary arts, and really there were only good things to say there. The fish is very fresh and of good quality. The sushi are... More

capesante sashimi was new to me and I still dream about it, their astice gratinato is also very very good and so is everything else I tried, loved it, went twice this summer and am going to treat myself to its luscious food soon enough!

Modern Sushi style for the Italians. Different to typical sushi from Japan. Good quality with some Japanese chefs. Portions are small but tasted authentic Japanese sushi. Far better than Chinese fake Sushi !! Not a big place so best to make a reservation first. Mainly sushi and sashimi only so careful. Good place for a quick sushi I think.

Excellent sushi assortment and selection. Among the best in MIlano. Freshness and Qaulity require a little price tribute and Basara deserves the extra Euro of its price. Could imporve the wine selection, having

He staff are always so kind and welcoming and soooo patient. The most velvety and buttery spicy tuna and rainbow rolls, and utterly delicious green tea tiramisu. The perfect sushi dinner.

A great little restaurant which I have now visited twice for Lunch, the first time with my 5 year old Sushi loving daughter, the second for my Birthday with my Wife. The Staff are very friendly and welcoming, (they recognised me on my second visit which is always a good sign). The Set Menus are excellent value and the Sushi/Sashimi... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
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.
