Super food - great staff

I went here alone an evening in Milan based on recommendations I found on Stay.com when I was in the neighborhood. I had a few dishes and they were great. The staff was very attentive and understodd that I was probably not going to enjoy waiting a lot as I was alone. I would recommend this place... read more

We booked ahead here for Friday dinner and indeed it was busy but not packed. Very good service and wine list. We enjoyed the generous plate of prosciutto and salami with the warm gnocchi and also the burrata which is a personal favourite. A super meal, slightly more expensive than we had been used to paying but well worth it.

We spent the nights here with some friends and had a very good dinner experience. The service was average but the quality and taste of food was just amazing. We would definitely come back again!

Tables are a bit too packed and it can get noisy when full, but everything else is definitely worth a go. Every now and again I go back to this place since many years ago.

I had dinner while traveling for business to Milano, located 10 min walking from the Duomo, nice atmosphere. Food is very good and wide Italian wine choice. The service is excellent, fast and ready to advice you. I had an appetizer with turbot and risotto as main course. Great dinner!!!

We spent our last day in Europe in Milan. We were having a glass of wine at the wine bar inside the department store which overlooks the Cathedral. The gentleman recommended Cantina della Vetra which was 15 minute walk. My wife had peppered swordfish pasta and I had beef tar tar. Both excellent. Service was also great.

Since many years an annual stop by. Great food, wine and service. Typical italian style. Make sure to taste the 'burrata'.

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
