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

The restaurant is nice and cosy. The owner is so charming and he knows his Prosecco very well. Sunday brunch was really value for money. The food was very good.

A nice restaurant. Tuscan they say but it feels broad Italian. Somewhat a little bit French as well! Very romantic, not the usual bright light. Romantic!

We were recommended to go here from a Milan local and it was well worth it. Nice atmosphere, the prociotto with melon as a starter was amazing and the 'summer style' pasta was one of the best pastas we ever had. The service was great, efficient and alert, yet somewhat impersonal.

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
