We just had dinner at this place and had the same experience as all of the other reviewers. The food was good, but small portions, the service was terrible and unorganized. The prices are ridiculous for what you end up getting and their secret add on fees are a big joke. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to my worst enemy.... More

I only wish I had read the other comments on tripadvisor before reserving here. The food is decent, but the additional charges are absurd, especially the 15 pct service charge, which added 25 euros to our bill (on top of the 5 euro per person cover charge, which is also pricey, if more typical for Milan.) On top of that... More

I love the interior of the restaurant as it felt like you were dining at someone's home. Unfortunately, the prices does not seem to justify for the overall experience. On top of the typical coperto/cover charge, there was an additional 15% service charge, which does not make sense when customers are already paying for the coperto. By paying 'double' service...

The food here is good, it was recommended by friends as well as trade magazines. The deserts were excellent. The Tiramisu and the Pannacota was excellent. The pricing is very expensive especially the 12 % service charge and the 5 Euro cover charge.

There are better places in Milan in terms of quality/price ratio. The foie gras starter was at 14eur or so and was two very thin slices of foie gras with 2 leaves of salad. They didn't bring us the mozzarella but instead the salami. The milanese was good but not the most memorable. The decor is definetely distinguished and the... More

We started our w.e with this restaurant on the advise of a friend and it was way under our expactations. Pour service, dishes over priced and food just average. We got a surcharge of €25 for bread and service for 2 people. We therefore decided not to tip which seriously annoyed our waiter who invited us to leave In order... More

La briciola offers a very pleasant atmosphere: interiors and people inside the restaurant are very well suited for couples or dinners with close friends. Given the proximity to Easter, the restaurant was decorated with a number of small to giant eggs, providing a sense of comedy without excess. Service was quite good, the waiter knew when to intervene timely without... More

Saved this restaurant for my daughters 21st birthday. What a charming establishment. It definitely attracts interesting clientele . The night we dined the paparazzi arrived to snap some celebs. Great interiors. The food was outstanding. Good place to dine Italian style, slowly over many courses and many hours. I recommend you make a booking. Particularly pretty at night with lots... More

Only casual looking restaurant I've been to in Italy that charged a ridiculously high cover charge of 5 EUR per person AND a service charge of close to 15%. I don't think their menu indicated these extra prices because I didn't see coperto or servizio on it. If it did, it was probably in size 1 font. The price was... More
