The Restaurant is quiet small but full of charme, base on one side of the Canals that represent a very popolar destination for the milanese evenings. It is easily reachable by tube (green line, porta Genova stop) plus 8/10 mins walking. The wellcome is very discrete and warm at the same time. The ambient is elegant and very appropriate for...

Restaurant was located in a nice, quiet historic building. Setting was intimate, quiet, and cozy. Staff was friendly. The chestnut cake with cheese and nuts was very good and tasty. The octopus with potato purée was also very good and would recommend. The salmon and broccoli was ok. Wouldn't order again. Nothing special about it. But overall, food was good... More

We chose this restaurant based on the ratings on tripadvisor and the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. BTW, we were staying at The Yard which is highly recommended, 5 stars. Osteria del Porta Cicca is located in the Naviglino area of Milan. This is essentially a small canal and is about a 15 minute walk from the city... More

This is a very nice little place right along one of the canals in Milan--yes, there are canals here. It is in an older building that was repurposed quite successfully and has both inside and outdoor seating. The menu is small but very good, heavily favoring seafood (the seafood antipasto is really good) but there is also an incredible wild... More

Strategically located along Navigli promenade, this place offers simple yet sophisticated interiors and great food that might pretend to be called haute cousin (try the quite unusually prepared caprese, capesante, spaghetti, lamb and duck breast!) not a typical osteria for sure!

This small restaurant is on the lively border of a canal lined with other restaurants and bars. (I even found a place nearby that poured Guiness, a relief from the fizzy local lagers). The Osteria was in a redone, old building adding to the ambience, and was quite nicely decorated. The feel was of an upscale place but it was... More

This restaurant served good food but the prices didnt match the quality. There are more restaurants in the area with just as good food but better prices. Still good food tho of you are prepared to pay for it.

The food was OK, scallops were undercooked though and portions are quite small. Tortellini came artfully arranged and were a bit dry inside. The food was overall OK though, if rather more painfully refined than I expected. We were given a choice of tables when we arrived, which was nice. After that our quota of hospitality had obviously been used... More

I went there after a friend suggestion and I found it super nice and perfect for a romantic dinner. The food is quite expensive but very good and dishes are totally creative but super tasty and amazingly presented. Something that really make the difference from other places is the basket of home made bread with nuts and dry fruits...love it!

selection of 6 seafood starters is a must, but my son's pasta with wild boar ragout was outstanding. Seared tuna was perfect. Definitely agree with 'beautiful and quiet experience' tables spaced out, attentive service, great decor etc etc. Only got it from Trip Advisor and recommended to our milanese friends.
