Excellent servis, the Chef is very nice person who treats you like king and queen :o) He recommended the extra meal that he prepared.

I've had the pleasure to eat at Osteria Al Portone 2 times over the last 3 months and both times I've been blown away with the amazing food that Max and he's team is serving - you can really feel the freshness as well that you are getting a home cooked meal made with passion and experience. The atmosphere of... More

I went in this restaurant following the high evaluation in Tripadvisor. I'm a bit confused because I try starters, main course and dessert but nothing were good. Both in the starters and in the main courses there were lots of pieces of onions. I well know how milanese risotto should be done, and which ingredients should be used... onions are... More

We got risotto alla Milanese and risotto with radicchio and zola as first courses. The risotto was perfectly cooked and amazingly flavored. As a main course we opted for the cotoletta alla Milanese, the traditional veal schnitzel on the bone and fried in butter. It came with a side dish of our choice. The meat was so tender that it...

Everything I read on Trip Advisor was spot on. Guy is very friendly with a great work ethic. He wants to make sure you have a good time and come back. He apologized that since it was summer he did not have coteghino or tripe. No problem. We "settled" for risotto, veal cutlets and osso buco. Hope the place becomes... More

The best risotto one can find is here! Came to this restaurant with fiends for dinner once and really enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Located on the outskirts of the downtown but it's worth to go. The dishes are delicious and the owner was very helpful and nice. It was our last dinner in Italy....very memorable! Grazie!

After many visits to Milan several years ago, this was my first time back. In 2000 had my first risotto al salto in a restaurant called Mona Lisa and it was great. Being back, I asked for this simple but delicious dish again although it was not on the official menu. I'm glad to be back. Well done Osteria Al... More

"Osteria al Portone" brings to your table wonderful plates from the Milanese tradition. They are rich and tasty and will leave you happy of your choice. The "Oste" (the innkeeper) will drive you through all the available plates, but try to ask him if he has some off-menu specialties, you may find some hidden gems! The atmosphere is of a... More
