Good value

We started with the meat antipasti which was excellent. My husband I both ordered fillet steak Florentine not realizing that it was a T-bone steak which at 20 euro each was great value. However I ordered my steak well done and it was not as well cooked as I would have liked. I'm British and we... read more

We went into this place because it was the only place open on a Monday night. It has an odd theme for a restaurant in the heart of Milan -but - it didn't matter anyway. We ended up having the absolute best meal we had during our entire 2 week trip to Italy. Food and service was excellent.

This place is awesome. Went two nights in a row because the service and prices were great. The sea bass is a must have and was cooked perfectly. Complimentary limoncello both nights.

Then you'll recognise pictures of troy Donahue and Sandra dee pasted all over the walls. Very welcoming restaurant and good choice of dishes. Staff are helpful and we had squid ink risotto, spaghetti with garlic and chilli and veal with lemon. All mouth-wateringly tasty. Wine is from about €15 to €60 - we had a bottle for €20 - no...

Even if the interior still is from the movie A Summer Place the restaurant has changed name but it's still easy to find. The food was excellent especially the Spaghetti Aglio. Very nice place and atmosphere and we'll return next time we're in Milan.

I don't know when this changed name from A Summer Place, but it must be a recent change. This restaurant seems to have changed name every couple of years. I hope the current incarnation lasts. We had wandered past, checking out the nearby Il Carpaccio for a return visit after a year away from the city and noticed that this... More

After spending three nights in Rome this place was very good value, with great food and service to match. The portions were generous so we didn't make it to dessert. Would definitely return.

Decent price and food but nothing special. If you want a quick bite to eat then this is worth a visit, but if your are looking for a culinary experience then try elsewhere.

Walked by the excellent Il Carpaccio and found this one. Most of the other customers were tourists and the food OK but a bit expensive for what it was and especially compared with Il Carpaccio.

Last week our italian culinary tour across Milan's restaurants (during the last 3 years we have changed almost a restaurant every evening) reached this one as the best rated in Tripadvisor for Repubblica zone. This restaurant was a disappointment to us, and we really don't understand the good reviews. You can get so much better food in Italy, with much... More
