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 had a perfect dinner at Cantina della Vetra - food was delicious and service incredibly friendly and professional. Excellent recommendations for food and wine. Try the speciality of the house, Stracciarella di burrata con pomodorini a grappolo, together with the cold cuts - you will not regret. Fish was excellent, the same applies to pasta. This is a place... More

The hotel concierge recommended the place, it was really nice. Decoration is rustic but feels Italian. They had beautiful old wine bottles with candles in the tables, which gave a nice touch. The food was really good. I enjoyed more the appetisers than the meal itself, I had a burrata that was amazing and a Uovo something that was like... 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.

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
