Our Milan-based friend's favorite restaurant

We were taken to this excellent restaurant by our 35-year-old British friend who has lived in Milan for the past 10 years. The chef's fish menu (lots of courses) was excellent, the service was great and we enjoyed the ambience on the covered terrace. Definitely a place where the locals go.

We walked by the La Scaletta, situated directly in Piazza Porta Genova, without even noticing it. The restaurant is hard to find, being raised half a floor above street level. I had to jump up to see through the windows. I spotted fancy bottles of wine and and was suitably impressed. To enter the restaurant, there is a door at... More

We went many times to La Scaletta and we were always pleased. The chef is creative with first-rate seasonal ingredients. The service is attentive and personal. The setting is great, both indoors in the winter and especially in the summer with the great patio in the backyard. Out the hundreds places we tried in Milan, La Scaletta is our favorite.... More

Run by three brothers, this resturant has a very personal touch. Very accomodating, being a vegetarian, even though options were limited, food was excellent.

If you have a business lunch appointment or just a relaxing date with friends or colleagues but want to eat well - La Scaletta is a perfect choice. Great location near the MM Pta Genova, lovely, friendly staff, refined ambiance and wonderful tasty dishes freshly prepared (not a mix you get often in busy Milano). Business lunch menu of 15€...

Limited menu is normally a good sign, but in this case it seemed that the good food is reserved for locals. We couldn't work out why the italian couple at the bar were tucking in to a great looking plate of Parma ham, olives and salami while, er it wasn't on the menu. Suckling pig was 70% bone parked on...

Starter with artichoke was stunning and also starter with grilled Octopus was one of the best i have ever tasted. Main course with meat was good but i... More
