After living near this restaurant for over a year I had never come by. They have beautiful big windows that face a park and so finally I decided to try it. The wait staff was friendly and offered suggestions but definatley were working for a high turn over in order to get in as many tables in as possible. When... More

My husband and I were fortunate to pop in early and reserve a table in advance for Friday night for our first dinner in Milan - what a perfect way to kick off the trip. The sommelier (very attentive and knowledgeable) recommended a mid-priced (hate it when they steer you toward the most expensive option!) bottle that was excellent and... More

We had a great meal here. My beef carpaccio was very good. The shaved celery was refreshing and balanced well with the truffled cheese. My wife had seafood in a potato cream which was very good. For entrées I had the pumpkin risotto with taleggio which was well cooked and was very tasty. My wife had the orrechiette with beet... More

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

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
