Hidden in a small and charming street in the hearth of the old Milan, you'll fall in love immediately for this bistrot with a warm Parisian atmosphere.Here,between wooden shelves filled with all delicacy, you will not missed the double butter croissants, the best tartare in town, our "wagyu" meat cheeseburger and all our seasonally dishes. Finally if you want to drink a good glass of wine waiting for you every night until 22.00Nascosto in una piccola e deliziosa via pedonale nel cuore della vecchia Milano non potrai non innamorarti di questo locale dalla calda atmosfera parigina. Qui infatti, tra scaffali in legno colmi di ogni leccornia, non potrai perderti i croissants al burro farciti al momento, le migliori tartare di tutta la città, il nostro cheeseburger con carne di "wagyu", la vera focaccia di Recco e tutti gli altri deliziosi piatti che cambiano stagionalmente. Se poi vuoi berti un buon bicchier di vino ti aspettiamo tutte le sere fino alle 22.00. Re Fosco Bar, molto più di un bar.

Nice and cosy place. Very good food & red wines

We were there by chance because our hotel was nearby. It's a nice cosy place only a few seats inside most are outside. Where people may smoke. (But no probably at all because the aeration is good) service very friendly and Quick and speaks very good English. Don't order a bottle of the 15... read more

We stumbled across the place as it was close to our hotel and one of the few cafes open at night. We were treated very well at this establishment and were even provided with complimentary appetizers while we drank our wine. Some of the best wine I have had in Milan and very good service. The place is a little... More

Close to our hotel, this was a great find for us after 20 hours of travel. Fantastic coffee, tasty breads and pastries, plus friendly attentive service. This would have been a definite revisit had we not been just overnighting.

In a wonderful little street just a few minutes from the city center a tiny very nice bistro which I fell in love into. Excellent lunch, you can choose from pasta (not the speciality) to hamburger to the delicious carpaccios, the real plus of the place. Good food, good atmosphere, reasonable prices: that's Italy, or at least this is the... More

In the heart of Milano, on a pedestrian way, a small but charming bistro serving delicious tartare, both beef (real piedmontese "fassona") and fish (excellent tuna with ginger). Desserts are good as well, the cheesecake is "original american" but there is also a very italian ricottina from Puglia served with honey and pine nuts. Wine choice is limited but good... More

My husband and I recently moved to Milan and stumbled upon this place while walking one day. The service is friendly and getting a spot on the small patio is a must. Beer, wine, and classic cocktails are 5 Euro each and come with a fantastic platter of snacks - chips, olives, bread, cheese, meats, and little vegetable sticks. I'm... More

Minuscule place in a walking area by the major polyclinic and orthopedic hospitals and the Duomo area. Nice people working there. Fantastic Croissants filled on the spot, good espresso. Be careful if you sit inside as you may find yourself on somebody else's lap, that is how small this place is. More spacious patio outside if you feel brave enough... More

We found this bar on Trip Advisor, and since it was the nearest to our hotel we decided to look no further. There was no free table outside when we came, so we were seated inside. This came to be even better, cause we could see our food being prepared and see the "soul" of the place. We started with... More
