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.

Nice restaurant with a good atmosphere. The wine list was very good and they made you feel very welcome. I would say the menu was a little narrow but there was a few things I was willing to try. They did struggle to explain a few of the foods which let to a little confusion, ( I was surprised that... More

A beautiful and quiet experience here, with perfect food and dessert is the highlight. Service is attentive and helpful, they speak English and make recommendations. A delightful location for walking before and after a delightful dinner. Dinner was Eur230 for three of us and well worth it.

The four of us selected all different portions from the menu and all 10 dishes were good, some very very good. The atmosphere is attractive and the service was kind and careful.
