Fresh Fish Restuarant

This restaurant is renowned for fish. We were a large group for business lunch. We had an excellent service (the number of staff working there were above average from my experience) and we ate a mix of large variety of shell fish and fish as anti-pasti, followed by pasta dishes. Ambiance is nothing... read more

We were two lovely couples celebrating our beautiful friendship. This restaurant is indeed good. It has its own style, old and nobel but without luxury elements. Our purpose was to eat fish. As you know starter is extremely important in restaurants, because it is an introduction. The starter in Al Porto was great: slightly marinated swordfish was marvelous, wirth nice... More

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 not your typical tourist restaurant...no one spoke English. I had... 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
