Elegant place with great food

The restaurant has a great decoration, that gives a comforting aspect to the place. The food has a interesting mixture of flavors, really nice. Also, good wine options.

The food was OK actually expensive for what you get. The service was fast at the begging after a while the waiter didn't come back and they lasted about 20 minutes just to give us our desserts menu: after asking twice for it. It's average.

We were attracted by the nice and welcoming interior. The service was low keyed but efficient and charming. We enjoyed the italian courses fused with elements from other nations. It is prized at the higher levels in this area, but competes very well with the other restaurants in this segment. We will definitely be back.

On our last night in Milan, my hubby decided to splurge and tried this restaurant. We ordered the Naviglio tasting menu (55 Euros per/person). We thought the food was just average and didn't really wow us that much. Nevertheless, the service and ambiance were great especially for couples.

I ordered the expensive tasting menu (55 euros) and my wife ordered a starter and a main course. We also ordered a bottle of white wine (recommended by the waiter, and was excellent). I would most if not all the dishes were on the salty side, in a noticeable way. They were interesting and with nice flavours but it seems... More

This place was a bit of a disappointment. It's a charming place and the menu was creative, but I found the food to be okay, not great. Perhaps most importantly, it was way overpriced for the quality of the food. I'd be tempted to give it a second chance, but I don't want another large hole in my pocket.

Have been staying in the area of Navigli for the third week for business + leisure and have tried 10+ restaurants/ bars along the canal, I would highly recommend Osteria di Porta Cicca simply because all dishes I've had were delicious. Been to here twice and had octopus, salmon, scampi and tiramisu. All were marvellous. I was very touched when... More

Tonight we had a reservation, and we even called in advance to confirm it, and it was fixed. However, once we got there, we realized they did not reserve us a table. The main waitress not only did not excuse herself, but she even accused us of not being flexible enough to wait an hour for a table we have... More

Dear Francesca, we would like to explain you once more what really happened with your reservation. Usually, we split our guests in two rounds per night; that day, for the first round several customers delayed also for troubles with public transportations. We still regret about that, but it was not our fault. Besides, we are glad to know you enjoyed... More

Just spent a weekend in Milan, this restaurant was by far the best we ate at...... Great menu, well executed, unbelievable flavours, and superb service. You won't find a better restaurant in Milan, forget these pompous over rated restaurants in the city centre, yeah they're good, but this place is exceptional.

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
