All the classic Milanese dishes

Food good not great. The service was excellent. Total bill was a surprise though, and not in a good way. Maybe we should have gone at lunch?

This trattoria was indeed famous, time ago. Now even the waiters are Chinese and have barely understandable Italian, imagine the kitchen staff ! Food is of course appalling as is the service. Avoid at any cost.

This restaurant is an institution in Milan. I suggest going for lunch. It is always hopping and the atmosphere is quite special. I am in Milan every March, when Bugutta is full of locals with a few tourists, I am sure the ration flips during the summer, which may change the experience drastically. Recently, I ordered the Tagliatelle Bolognese and... More

I went back to Bagutta after many years with great expectations. I remembered the unusual, cool decor and great food. The former is still there, the latter not so much. There was nothing particularly wrong with what we ordered (pasta, tuna steak, sea bass) but it was all rather dull and uninspiring. And it is not cheap either, our bill... More

Just love this restaurant. It is famous for giving away a literary prize each year and the walls are full of its infamous history. The food is great, classic Milanese dishes, the wine list impeccable.

This restaurant was recommended to me by a client and it did not disappoint. We were a large party celebrating a 60th birthday. I contacted the restaurant ahead and requested a cake and they were prompt in responding. Food was amazing, Service outstanding, and Cake delicious. And to top off the night- the whole restaurant participated in singing my friend... More

I feel I have to write and include this amongst my reviews. Almost every time I've visited Milan I've come here - one time I made a special visit just for a meal. On every occasion I have wanted to revisit - hopefully that says it all. Plus it has great history which is an enjoyable learning exercise!

Very smart internal decoration, well lit in the evening, makes for a stylish experience. Professional service, good wine list and enjoyable food. Good central location. Slightly expensive but worth it for the overall ambience.
