A local from Milan told us that this place is his favourite food place and the person local should know - he is head waiter at a leading restaurant in Milan. We took a 15 minute taxi ride and found ourselves at this quaint wood-panelled restaurant. The first good impression was just looking at the fine bar and surrouds. Our... More

I have now been many times to this restaurant and it is always a positive experience. The staff are friendly and the food is really good - you must take as a starter the mixed plate with "burrata". The main courses are always perfect - the tartar tastes delicious. Only thing to keep in mind - this is not an... More

We stumbled upon this place by accident on a Sunday. And what a wonderful stumble to have. We were looking for a place to have lunch. We saw this place across the way, and a handsome man waved us over. One look at the menu and the large set up of salami, prosciutto, salads, breads, and spreads behind him was... More

I ate here while in Milan on a business trip, therefore I was dining alone. When I arrived I was told that they were actually fully booked for the evening but they would find me a table. I was advised that I could have a table till 9pm, I arrived at 7:30pm so that was plenty of time (when eating... More

Delicious typical Italian cuisine with a touch of originality. Visited almost exclusively by Italians in a very nice decoration.

Service was great. Attentive service by the wait staff and the kitchen. It's definitely a nice break away from the tourist joints you see around Duomo. Will visit again in the future.

Our meal at Cantina Della Vetra was fantastic. The mood is a nice, relaxing candlelit atmosphere. The food is fresh and simple.

This was the best meal and best service we experienced in Milan. The wine was also superb. The waiter brought us the wrong appetiser by mistake ( which we ate and was delicious ) and then brought us the one we actually ordered at no extra charge. We would definitely go back

There's always an experience for me that helps define a visit to a new city - and I had that at Cantina della Vetra. Taking a streetcar from the Duomo to somewhat get away from the tourist crowd, we got off after several stops and wandered the neighborhood. We knew we were early for dinner but saw staff inside the... More
