Best Food in Milan!

This is one excellent restaurant....My husband and I came here in 2012 while visiting Europe; after wandering around looking for dinner, we were advised by two locals it was the best seafood in Italy. They were right. The food was so delicious, well prepared, and beyond our expectations. This is... read more

Just been in this famous restaurant and thought to find better quality of food. Great service and nice location, anyway I had better expectation of food quality. Raw fish was not rich in selection, fresh but not superb...I strongly recommend to upgrade menù and food variety.

After a two years break we finally found this restaurant again and nothing changed. The owner, the chef, the service and the food were just perfect. For us the best restaurant in town and we tried many of them already.

3rd visit in 10 years, this restaurant is perhaps expensive by Italian standards but then it is the best fish restaurant I have experienced in Milan. One of my children's birthday, the fish is FRESH no frozen, the waiters are kind and smiley with kids, you can order wine by the glass and most customers are boomerang customers. The fish... More

I have had the pleasure of dining in this restaurant for over 20 years and if you like fresh seafood and Italian cuisine you will never be disappointed here. Only the best! This is a classic in Milan and the family runs it with perfection. I look forward to my visits to Milan and especially in dining at Al Porto.... More

This place never fails to impress for quality of food and excellent service. Highly recommended. Prices on a par or even more reasonable (see good affordable wines) with trendier Milanese fish places.

For me, this is the best food in the world. The Antipasto Caldo Misto is one of the dishes I dream about. The decor is wonderfully unchanged Italian and I fervently hope it stays that way. Compared to other fish restaurants in Milan, and also in London it isn't hugely expensive. On some visits I have been totally surrounded by... More

It seems this restaurant has attracted local clientele for over 100 years and at their prices that speaks volumes. Although you will pay a bit more here, you will get service and quality like no other!! We arrived too early but were still let in. The staff were eating and discussing the menu for the night. We were offered a... More

A nice, bustling, traditional restaurant, 15 minutes walk from the Duomo. Very good fish and seafood (bass being the highlight). It's not cheap, but neither is it out of line with other restaurants serving food of this quality, and there are none of the snobbish trappings you get at some of the more pricey places (a reverent hush, formally dressed...
