Milan is not a difficult place to bump into a good restaurant or a trendy wine club, but, when it comes to a proper wine list, made of little gems hand picked by the owner, not to impress the reader but to delight the wine lover, this is the place to go. Rare bottles are personally selected and stored to... More

Stumbled across this restaurant while browsing the Brera neighborhood. The space is small and cozy with amazing dishes from all over Italy. Don't miss the chocolate and pear cake - I would come back to Milan just for another slice!

In the heart of the fashionable Brera district in the middle of Corso garibaldi, which is full of overpriced and expensive restaurants, this is a pleasant exception. Mostly frequented by regular clients it has a very good value for money proposition with only a few dishes on the menu that follow the season and the tradition and very honest prices:... More

The restaurant is cosy and, together with the furniture, has the flavour of childhood old things. This and the name of the osteria, which has a sibling in Bologna, attracetd us; however the food wasn't as tasty as one would experience in Bologna itself. We had pasta, gramigna with walnuts which was nice, fillet and a cartoccio which was rather... More

Quite good food. Authentic menu. Fair prices. Service omg so unfriendly. The staff does not even try at all to be pleasant. If you are looking only for good food not nice atmosphere, it is ok. Ambiance pretty bad as well.

A local who owns a gallery in town (www.africacurio.com) recommended Osteria dei Poeti to us and was even kind enough to make reservations for us. Reservations are recommended as it is a small place and it fills up quickly especially at dinner time. The food was delicious, fresh and good. The hostesses were very attentive and it was evident that... More

We went in for lunch. This is not the place to try out refined cuisine or high end cooking. The prices are, for what you get, excellent. The choices are limited but thats ok. We had as primi the spaghetti with tuna, which were good, and as mains, the grilled steak. Excellent. And the salad with toasted bread, not bad,... More

Nothing fancy, but simple good italian recipes, nice people and very reasonable prices. But do not expect to find a table without a reservation. l saw at least four groups come and be turned away in a half hour. I particularly like the piadina, portafoglio, and all excellent homemade desserts.

This is an old-fashioned trattoria in Corso Garibaldi, in the Brera district, not far from the Brera art gallery, and is quite small so it fills up very quickly. I recommend either arriving at 12.00 for lunch or booking a table. They have a good selection of traditional dishes and I particularly enjoyed the home-made desserts, such as "torta di... More

A real italian osteria for the milanese people. A very authentic place. Reservation is needed.
