This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. Normally I'm suspicious of such recommendations but we're glad we went. The restaurant sits in a charming old part of town. Food was great as was service, and the ambience as well. We asked for a wine recommendation and were served a very nice wine that I've never seen outside of... More

Best not tell everyone or it will be very difficult to get in, this is a real gem in the city. Great food, great service and fantastic pricing. It's just of the area colonne. It's very lively in the evening and great appetitive bars etc. the menu is in English if you like and the staff can speak good English.... More

A friend living in Milano took me to this restaurant years ago and I've been coming back ever since. I very much like the relaxed elegant and friendly service. This time I had baked goat cheese and vegetables as a starter and the carbonara with truffle(!) as a main dish. The waiter offered me two different wines by the glass... More

Went to Cantina della Vetra as we wanted a nice meal with a good atmosphere. The decor of the restaurant is absolutely beautiful with a rustic Italian feel even down to the smallest details. The service is good as is the lunchtime atmosphere (not too busy but not too quiet either). The food selection is interesting and we were spoilt... More

I went there last friday night and had a great experience. I had prosecco by the glass and gnocco fritto with prosciutto which was amazing. Then I had the special dish of the month, an amazing risotto. The portions were very big and it was a shame sending so much amazing food back, so hold on to your horses when... More

We found the restaurant when we were looking for a place for lunch. The restaurant is a bit away from the typical tourist spots. The interior is lovely, with a lot of wonderful details. The staff is very friendly and competent. The food which we ordered was good, nothing extremely special, but tasty! Wine was as well nice. It seemed... More

I went to this restaurant with some friends for a birthday. The atmosphere is quite intimate, with candles and everything, even though the place is always crowded and tables are slightly too close to each other. In the menu we found traditional food revisited in an interesting way. They also have a good wine list. All the courses we got... More

Casual friendly environment and good wine selection. Burrata is a must try, as well as their pastas. When time, puntarelle salad is recommended too.

I booked this restaurant for a group of 16 people for a birthday meal whilst in Milan. It was recommended to us by someone who lived in Milan as one of the two top places to eat in the city - the other was a more pricey, Michelin-starred restaurant. Giacomo, the Manager, was incredibly helpful during booking - all via... More

I had high expectations going to this restaurant, as its reputation was pretty high, even among friends. Unfortunately, I did not have a good experience, as the food quality was pretty low. Generally speaking, the portions were either too small or too large, and the food was practically tasteless and covered in oil. Moreover, prices were pretty high, both for... More
