Feel like home restaurant

I had a "perfect memory" of this restaurant. I went back recently and the standards went down a bit, but it's always a great place to have dinner to. A "like home" atmosphere, good Sicily cuisine, good service. Do not to book since they only have few table.

Maybe we did it wrong and we chose the fix menu, however after I left the restaurant I did not feel good at all, with stomach pain and a smell of garlic all around me. In addition my clothes smell like fried fish and it is not possible to pay with credit card, only cash which is not acceptable in... More

We visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening. From the outside it looked like a homely, rustic restaurant, and it seemed quite busy. However, we were bitterly disappointed with the whole experience and were very sorry that we had gone there. To begin with, the restaurant seemed badly ventilated and there was a very strong, stale smell of cooking present.... More

What can I say, bought the positive reviews and were disappointed, the food was disgusting and terribly tasteless. It is unclear what the restaurant has received all the awards.

I've visited this restaurant twice, out of which the second time this month and was appalled by what I've seen this, second time: a) never have I seen the bottled (0,75) wine served without a list, without even a cork and last but definitely the least - sipping without waiting your clients to try! b) steamy windows could be something...

You ring the doorbell, having made sure to book in advance because there are only ten tables, and you walk into a warm welcoming atmosphere. It feels like someone's cosy front living room. The food is as informal as the setting. Tasty Sicilian home cooking included real vegetables ... short on the ground in Milan. My swordfish with a lemon... More

Getting good food at reasonable prices in the centre of Milan can be quite a challenge, so take a 10 minute Metro ride from Duomo, ring the doorbell and enter for good food, good value, good service and a very friendly welcome. Interesting vegetable antipasta; good, tasty swordfish, and sensibly priced wines.

I have always had a soft spot for this little restaurant. I love the smile with which they greet you when you come in, their simple, unpretentious decor that makes you feel at home, their amazing Sicilian dishes which range from a still unbeatable 'Paste con le sarde' and a luscious 'Rigatoni alla Norma' to their swimmingly fresh fish cooked...
